Goals Update: Decorating For Halloween ☠

Hello lovlies! It's October 19th and that means there is 12 days until Halloween! I can't believe how quickly October has flown by. Although this post may be a little over due, I finally decorated for the season! This was a goal I had for October, and I really enjoyed it! Check out the pictures below to see how I decorated my room for Halloween/fall :)

One of my favorite things about fall is the scents! Going from fruity, beachy summer candles to warm, spice scented candles is a refreshing transition. Candles are one of the best ways to get the cozy fall feeling, and 'Leaves' is one of my favorite candle scents of all time! This candle is from Bath & Body Works, and is a popular favorite that comes back yearly. It is described as "featuring notes of golden nectar, ripe delicious apple, and red berries." Surprisingly, I didn't care for the smell of this candle when I first smelled it, but now I have come to absolutely love it & it is a staple when decorating for fall. 

Now for the Halloween decorations! I recently went on a trip to Walmart to look through their Halloween section, and actually came across some great decorations. I found this string of pumpkin lights & thought they were the cutest! I already have strings of lights around my room so I figured these would be awesome, and would add a perfect splash of Halloween. The pack I got was $5, came with 10 pumpkin lights, and is about 6 ft long. 

The next thing I picked up at Walmart was a pack of glittery spiders! I loved that these spiders were covered in black glitter! It added a cute feel to a 'scary' decoration. I thought it would be cool to have them climbing up my wall, so I used press-in-place door & window caulk. This stuff is great for hanging objects like this on your wall because you can pull off a much as you need, shape it how you need, & it doesn't take the paint off your walls. These spiders could be used to decorate is many different ways! You could put them in some fake spider webs, near some food bowls if you're having a party, etc. The pack came with 8 spiders and I think it was about 2 or 3 dollars.

Then I got some decoration for my bedroom door. Again, I got it from Walmart, but this caution tape can be found almost anywhere during Halloween. I think that this is just classic Halloween decoration, and its super cheap & easy to hang up. I got 20 feet of tape for 97¢. 

And finally, I have my favorite decoration that I got this season! I got this lil guy at Michaels craft store, and he was about $14. I thought this was so cute, and couldn't possibly leave the store without it! This is another decoration that screams classic Halloween to me. To add a little color & spunk, I added a ribbon bow. I got this trick or treat ribbon at Michaels as well, for $1. I also got the glittery fall leaves that are around the cat at Michaels for about $2. 

So that's it for this post! I really enjoyed decorating my room for Halloween/fall! This is the first year that I bought festive decorations for my room and it really put me in the Halloween spirit. Although October goes by in the blink of an eye, I think putting up decorations helps make the Halloween feeling last a little longer. Being able to see the festive decorations everyday reminds you of the holiday, and I think it inspires the Halloween spirit. I'm really glad that I set this as a goal for the month :) 

Well, I hope you guys enjoyed this post, and got some inspiration! Let me know your thoughts in the comments & if you have any Halloween/fall decorations I would love to see your pictures so leave your links as well!
Thanks for reading!
