Tour de Halloween Decor

My last post got all hot and heavy on you, so I'll lighten it back up on my Hump Day post!

By this point, we all know that Halloween is my favorite holiday. I adore decorating our home, and I'm not just talking about cutesy glittery stuff. I have an affliction for skulls. In fact, sitting in my living room as I type this, I can see five skulls of various sizes and shapes.

Given my deep love for this bizarre holiday, I thought I'd share some of my favorite decorations around the house. This is, AHEM, just a sneak peak of what I put my poor family through. There's much more, including more skulls, skeletons and lights. But I don't want to overwhelm your senses, so I picked my favorites!

And now, the Best Of the Leitch's Halloween Decor:

Ceramic pumpkin; usually full of candy corn. From Home Goods circa 2007.

I got this at Michael's Craft Store last year, and it FREAKED the dogs out. Nonstop growls. Now, he's their homie.

Candy dish and resin pumpkins from Target. As you can see, our garage got so hot in the Texas summer, it started to melt and deform the pumpkins. Can't wait to have a house with storage!

Even my dish towels turn Halloween in the fall. From Target.

Skull cookie jar we picked up in New Orleans last fall. This little gem is one of my all-time faves!
What kind of Halloween stuff are you into? Sparkles and charming things or blood and gore?! Or do you keep your home decor to the more neutral "fall" theme?

  1. Girl. You are some kind of interesting--unique! While skulls may not be my particular style, I think it's awesome that you totally own your interests.

    Also... I love that pumpkin jar! I wish we had a HomeGoods around here... so many good things come out of HomeGoods.

    1. Hahahaha! I'm going to tell the hubs you said so. That man is so patient with all my craziness, and let's me do whatever I want to the house. He was covered in silver glitter from a skeleton I just picked up recently, and didn't even complain!

      And agreed. Home Goods is the business.

    1. This is the first year I live in a neighborhood that *could* have trick or treaters and I'm SO excited! I was always in too young/urban of an area, and our last town home was gated... So I'll let you know! :)
