Can you believe that it’s almost Christmas? Again?! I’m so excited to show you my Christmas decorations reveal, but first, take a look at what the living room looked like before the Christmas transformation.
After the hoopla of my Halloween decorations, autumn looks very understated. To make a fast transformation I took away all things that were strictly Halloween and added a few fall touches to complete my living room in time for Thanksgiving company.
And now, just like that, the next post will be to share my Christmas decorations. It is the first time that I decorated even the bedroom. I usually just do the kitchen and the living room for company, but this year… well, you’ll see.
I WAS going to put links for the free printables that I used in my Fall/Halloween decor this year, but then the post became too long, soooo…. Here are some links that I used this year. Check out my other post on free Halloween printables too. There are some really cool and generous sites out there!
Another primitive painting from me to you. Just click on the picture for a download. It is in 8 x 10 at 300 dpi, so that you can enlarge if you have a bigger printer.
Just click on the pictures below for the free printables/downloads.
Looking for ages through Google just to find a free Halloween printable that suits your taste? Well, let me tell you, I just found out that the best and biggest selection of printables in one place are to be found on the sites that have free downloadable wallpapers for your phone or computer.
The wallpaper images for the computer are set as landscape. They are great because you can crop to the size that you want your picture to be. Square? No problem. Oval? No problem. Plus, the art is done in a complete range of styles. Cute to spooky. Cartoony to realistic. Vintage? Yes!
Another plus is that the images are in HD and they are generally large files so you could even take a flash drive to an Office supply store and have pictures printed larger than you own printer’s capabilities.
One caution- the sites say that the files are downloadable for free, but I’m pretty sure that it means for your personal use, so do keep that in mind. The art to be found is so awesome that I cannot imagine that the artists would be happy if we made posters and started selling them. Oooops! But, do check the links in this post if you are looking for Halloween art. You won’t be disappointed.
I just had to share one of my new favorite paper places on the web. If you love paper projects, you will LOVE Mel’s blog – Melstampz. She includes the smallest detail in her tutorials. The tutorials are easy to follow, with step-by step instructions, lots of photos and printable templates. There also a ton of free paper designs. I love the one with all of the ephemera styled papers. Mel’s tags are adorable as well.
How Cute is this little ribbon spool with a hidden compartment?!♥
I LOVE Halloween, but I rarely have time to decorate my own house. So, I work in a visit with my niece and my grand niece by decorating THEIR house. Luckily, Steph doesn’t mind a pushy old aunt changing her house around. Plus, the kids (both young and old) get a kick out of seeing all of the decorations come out. This display is nothing more expensive than going out back and cutting down a few dead tree limbs. I spray painted them black with paint that I already had. The rest, ravens, tiny glass ornaments and skull, is from the Dollar Store.
