Greet all of you Autumn guests with some festive Halloween decorations in your foyer. Nothing sets the tone of your home like that first warm inviting step.
Halloween decorations have always been a favorite of mine ever since I was a little girl. I can still vividly remember those first crisp autumn days when my mom would pull out all of the folding paper pumpkins (the kind that opened up into a little orb of tissue honeycomb), do you remember those? I would help her fan them open and tuck back the little silver clip that held the pumpkin shape in place. Oh how I loved traipsing around behind her as she placed them about the house. My love of decorating with pumpkins must have started there, with those sweet little folding tissue pumpkins. But as the years have passed, I have traded my paper pumpkins in for real ones and I always smile and think of my mom as I place them about my house.
This year as I placed my beloved cinderella pumpkin in my foyer I decided to add a few other embellishments to make my Halloween scene complete.
I just leaned a simple tree branch (that I found in my yard) against the wall and wove some store bought spider webbing through the branches.
Tucked in a few plastic spiders and hung up a couple of black ribbon bats.
The black ribbon bats are cinch to make! Just cut a piece of ribbon, tie a clear piece of craft string tightly around the center into a knot. Fold the ribbon in half and cut a few notches along the bottom edge of the ribbon to shape the wings.
Voila! You’ve got a bat!
Invite guests into your home with a festive foyer this Halloween!
It’s a s easy as can be!
