Budget-Friendly Halloween Decorating Ideas

Neutral and spooky Halloween decor and budget-friendly Halloween decorating ideas! Fall has officially arrived, which means I can share spooky Halloween decor and creepy dolls without it being too weird.   I realize Halloween decor, particularly spooky skeletons and creepy dolls aren't for everyone.  Just skip over today's post and check back next week, I promise it won't hurt my feelings.   For my fellow spooky Halloween, creepy crusty doll head lovers, today's post is for you! October is a busy month, so I scaled back my Halloween decor and kept it simple.  I created a spooky gallery wall, painted a handful of thrifted jack-o'-lanterns , and displayed some of my favorite creepy old dolls.   One of my favorite aspects of Halloween is that there are a tremendous amount of ways to decorate on a budget.  From inexpensive thrift store finds to easy budget-friendly DIY projects, it's easy to create a spooky Halloween decorated home for less.  BUDGET-FRIENDLY WAY...

Let's Go Thrifting: Auction and Thrift Store Finds Vol 4

A curated COLLECTION OF VINTAGE furniture and decor FROM FACEBOOK MARKETPLACE, AUCTIONS, ANTIQUE MALLS AND THRIFT STORES!

House Plant Tour And Plant Care Tips

Decorating with house plants.  Take a home tour of 12+ different house plants and learn easy plant care tips. I love cooler temps, changing leaves and all the activities that come with fall, but I'm having difficulty getting into the fall decorating mood.  Can anyone else relate? I may add a collection of pumpkins outside and a few dried botanicals inside, but I'm seriously thinking of skipping straight to Halloween.   So before I get too deep into Halloween decorating , I thought I would share a little house plant tour and simple plant care tips for beginners.  I'm still very new to being a plant mama, but I have learned a few things since adding various plants to my home.  It's taken a bit of trial and error and moving plants around to find what makes them grow and thrive the best, but I'm happy to say, I haven't killed a house plant yet.  1.
