This year was special because it was the first year we took the time to make Halloween decorations. (Last year was our first year in this house, so we weren't really settled, nor had quite the energy to do so).
So, this year was pretty special. Since I didn't have much time and didn't want to spend the big bucks, I decided to go for DIY crafts, and they worked out great!
Cute cardboard letters and funny pumpkin (which were a blast for my lovely daughter):
Kids in the neighborhood went crazy for it, and so did I! We actually had to wait 'til Halloween to cover the window, since the black cardboard darkened the master bedroom quite a lot.
