After the LONGEST hiatus EVER (thanks COVID), Mama Saigh is back on The Jason Show this week with some more ideas for your Halloween decorating!
Let's start with a fun and inexpensive way to decorate your mantle, front door, or other areas of your home using 3D bats that we found on Amazon...
|I found these 3D bats on Amazon (48 bats for approx. $8), and used|
them to decorate our fireplace and mantle for Halloween. I filled
apothecary jars from JoAnn's with white skulls, and filled in the
blank spaces with crows, candle sticks, and antlers.
|I also used them to decorate our front door to make it look|
like spooky Halloween bats are flying out of our house. The
gorgeous mums are from Costco, the planters and brown pumpkin
are from Lowes, the "Hey There Pumpkin" doormat is by Oh Trendy Baby,
and I found the buffalo plaid doormat on Amazon.
Finally, try making velvet pumpkins at home for a fraction of the price that you'll find in stores...
|I started seeing these velvet pumpkins at boutiques everywhere last Autumn,|
and I'm still in love with the look. However, at $20+ a pop, these beauties can add up!
|Start by cutting a circle of any size in a piece of stretchy|
velvet fabric. Don't worry about cutting the perfect circle.
|Using a heavier-duty thread and a sewing needle, do a|
simple stitch along the outside of the velvet material.
|Leave a space big enough to fill your pumpkin up with|
half dry rice, and then fill the rest with a Poly-Fil.
|Secure and close with a needle and thread.|
|Next, take your needle and thread all the way down|
through the bottom of your pumpkin and back up through
the top a few times to make sure it's secure. Finally, super
glue a stem from a gourd or pumpkin on top!
|Our homemade velvet pumpkins were the perfect addition to|
our fall table-scape last Autumn!
