What is that one thing that you can't go without for Halloween? For me it's spider webbing! I use that stuff everywhere.
Tombstones are a staple.
Creepy cloth, faux candles, and spiderweb!
I use creepy cloth on tables and draped over anything! Spiderweb can make a blank wall look decorated very cheaply and faux candles set a great mood!
I'm not so into the designer pumpkin scenes. They're neat, but look like nothing till lighted (not to say that I wouldn't have one....I saw a headless horseman scene with bridge and all not from pattern that was GORGOUS one guy did a number of years back I'd love to have a copy of in a Funkin). I've always loved the simplicity and beauty of Pumpkinrots carvings. Myself, I tend to go for resin / ceramic pumpkins and Funkins over real just to re-use ea year.Any suggestions for designs? I love jack-o-lanterns, I didn't get the chance to do any this past year :/ I will be this year though!
To me, Jack o'lanterns are just the quintessential Halloween icon. You can't see a carved pumpkin and NOT think of Halloween. Best of all, they can be designed to convey any mood (scary, silly, cheerful) or theme. I love fun patterns and the fancy-schmancy ones, like on Pumpkin Rot, but to me, a good old eyes-nose-mouth Jack face is the best.I think they're great they definitely set the scene right for any theme!
That's awesome!Jack-o-lanterns and black cats. For years I collected black cat decorations or decorations that incorporated black cats somewhere within the theme. And then one dark night about a week before Halloween, a real black kitten somehow appeared in my (fenced) back yard. I don't know where he came from. He's grown into a beautiful silky cat and I always joke that he's now my favorite Halloween decoration.
