When September comes, I start thinking about fall decorating.
But, I have to admit, I’m a little torn.
Do I decorate for Halloween first? Or just fall in general?
I tend to decorate for fall in general and then add Halloween as the holiday draws closer.
But my kids want the Halloween decorations to go up first.
What do you think?
Since, I’m in charge (kind of!), the Fall wreath will go up first.
Then, I’ll change it out in October for Halloween.
By the way, I made both of these wreaths.
The Fall wreath was made with materials I already had from prior projects:
- grapevine wreath
- faux flowers
- real mini Indian corn
- burlap ribbon (okay…this was new)
- mini chalk board and twine
I used a combination of hot glue, wire and just poking the flowers securely into the grapevine to adhere everything to the wreath.
The Halloween wreath was made with:
- a straw wreath form
- black fabric strip from fabric I had on-hand (you could also use wide ribbon)
- Halloween garland with little ghosts, candy corn and berries
- big, fake spider
- big wooden ghost shape
- black and white striped ribbon
I wrapped the black fabric strip around the straw wreath and tucked in the loose ends and hot glued with small dots to secure the fabric to the form.
Then, I wrapped the garland around the form tucking in the ends.
Finally, I finished the wreath by hot-gluing the large faux spider and ghost shapes here and there.
So, what do you do first Decorate for Fall or Halloween?
