Tim and I didn’t want to celebrate Halloween – such a silly American Holiday. But it is really cosy and slowly the traditions stealt upon us. October is a month in which you really need to decorate and invite guests. We decided we were allowed to decorate as long as it didn’t cost anything. So during a week we sat each night cutting and gluing. Below you can download our templates to make your own cuttings. Since then more items have been added to the collection, now the rule has changed to “it has to be cheap” – who are we fooling anyway!?! ;)
Take a tour in our Halloween decorated dining room.

Tim dresses up scary from what he can find, 2004 and 2005.

Diverse small and larger figurines.

|Scary pumpkin candlelights in each bay window. I use to have small orange flowers in them, but alas …|
|A fabulous 3d book formed like a haunted house in which a boy looks for his dog. On the way he meets the most scary creatures and things.|
|So many great details which I hope my photo shows. I have photographed all four sides. In the roof there is a see-through ghost which looks very real from the inside of the house.|
|At the beginning of October I have several different pumpkins outside. Later the orange one at the table is carved and the garden furniture hit away.|
