Our Haunted Halloween 2022
Halloween 2022 has come to a close and another haunted Halloween season is in the books.
October is usually very busy for us, and this year was no exception.
I assisted with props and decor for two Trunk-or-Treat events, which consisted of a lot of smaller projects – some handmade and some store-bought.
My biggest project was an oversized Jack O’Lantern that was a backdrop for family selfies.
Big Jack is constructed from insulation foam leftover from other projects. He came together surprisingly easy, and I will provide a quick overview and pattern at a future time should you want to create your own.
Ghosts were the theme for a photographer’s Pic-or-Treat.
For this project, I went old-school – fashioning kid-friendly ghosties from posterboard, craft foam, and tracing paper.
Several Dollar Tree projects also joined the mix, and I can’t wait to show you how simple and cute spooky can be. (Templates and tutorials will be coming in the near future.)
With the Trunk-or-Treat events behind us, we took a break from the creepy to celebrate our anniversary (33 years – oh my Lanta!) and then went right into decorating the yard for Halloween night.
My husband, whose birthday falls on November 1, had an extra special treat when both sons (one from LA) were his first trick-or-treaters of the night.
By 9 pm Halloween night, we pulled up the stakes, and the display was down and in the garage in record time.
Whew! What a crazy month!
But – before we tuck all the ghoulies back into their crypts, let’s take a close-up look at our very haunted Halloween.
