Fall Decorations - Boo Y'all

I'm really excited about this week's Kelly's Korner blog hop for Fall Decorations.  I've gotten so many great ideas from other blogs, so this is going to be fun!

Here are some Fall decorations that we have at our house this year.  We have some Trick or Treat decor going on, but it's definitely in the style of Casper the Ghost - nothing too scary :)

This is our front door wreath. I saw one like it at a florist shop for $60 and thought ... I think I can do that! I think I made this for about $1. I repurposed a grapevine wreath, picked up some post-season Fall stems from Wal-Mart for 15 cents each, then cut the leaves off and tucked them into the wreath.

Here are a few pics of our inside decorations. The pics are just okay ... it was really dark and dreary today in the Land of Little Mama :)

I bought this crow at our Dollar Tree and it took me a couple of days to find a home for him. But, here he sits on top of our fruit bowl. I put oranges in the bowl for Fall color.

Isn't he fun? Both Big Daddy and Sister did a double take when they first saw him. He's the hit of breakfast time, too, for Bitty Baby!

I saw the next ideas on a couple of blogs. I loved the banners people were doing, so I thought I would try it out. Here's an "Eek" banner I made for my great-grandmother's halltree.

I just threaded the letters with twine and made little twine tassels for each end.

This Chinese lantern jack-o-latern is really fun. He also came from Dollar Tree and he lights up, too!

This is the window over my kitchen sink.  I made this Boo sign with a Dollar Tree frame and printed letters off of our computer. 

This summer we hit Old Time Pottery in Gulf Shores during our beach vacation.  That place is huge and full of great bargains! 

We picked up a few Fall things to put outside ...

Here's our back door

 This little guy glows in the dark!

This Old Time Pottery "glittery" Trick or Treat sign hangs on our back door - Oh, how Sister and I love glitter!

This sign made Big Daddy and I crack up.  We put it right in the front yard :)

Ready for candy!
