Our Minimal Fall and Halloween Decor

This past weekend I finally got around to decorating our home for Halloween!  Nice and simple was the name of the game because we don’t have a ton of space, I didn’t want to spend much money, and we can’t decorate the outside of our condo.  Even though the decorations are minimal they make the kids so happy!

The bats on the wall are from the Target dollar spot and I decided to tape them to the wall rather than put them on a string, as it suggests.  We need more but for now these 6 little bats will do!

The pompom and bat garland on the mirror was a Target dollar spot find that I used on our mantle in 2016 when we lived in the 115 year old historic Army quarters on Fort Leavenworth.

The group of navy, white, and celadon green ceramic pumpkins were found at Goodwill this year!  The Goodwills on Oahu receive all of Target’s leftover decor that isn’t sold after the holidays, so these pumpkins must be from last year’s Target Halloween collection.  I think I got them for $3.50 total.  Such a good deal!

I had the kids paint paper maché pumpkins in September and then I tied a little raffia on the stem to dress them up a bit.  The key to making sure your kids’ crafts actually go with your home’s decor is to choose the paint colors yourself.  I think they turned out pretty well!

My only real “investment” this season was the woven water hyacinth pumpkin I bought at Target.  But at $16.99 it was still really affordable!  The smaller version is very cute too, and only $7.99.

How did you decorate your home for Halloween this year?  Even though this didn’t take much effort at all it was really fun to watch Jack’s expression when he woke up from his nap and saw the updates.  We also hung a spider and spider web garland (another Target dollar spot find) over his bed, and he enjoyed choosing where to put it.  Kids make holidays so magical!
