Decorating for holidays is one of my favorite memories as a kid and even since I've been in college I've decorated as much as I could. Really the only ones I care much about are Halloween and Christmas as far as decorating goes. Probably because those are the ones I remember the most about from decorating the house with my Mom.
Our apartment doesn't allow for many decorations when it comes to storing them or putting them out. So I decided that if I wanted any decorations I would have to make them from things that were already out.
I saw that Walmart was selling M&M's that were candy corn colors. We also had several empty glass bottles that we were using for decoration. So here was my first Halloween decoration idea:
A lot of our picture frames are black so I figured I could use that to my advantage in this situation. I took out the picture and made a little Halloween drawing on some green construction paper from my scrap booking box with a sharpie. Then i added some floating eyeballs to the edges with double sided tape.
These things placed around the living room combined with a medium sized pumpkin we bought made the house look a little more festive.
