It’s Halloween Week!
Yay! It is finally here! We are entering Halloween week. I swear, I wait for this all year long and now it is finally here! This year we even get to enjoy 2 weeks of fun since Halloween falls on a Monday! Most of the fun is going to be happening this weekend coming I suppose, and then we have Halloween on Monday! I actually do not have too much planned this Halloween. Chris has basketball training on the Monday night, so I guess we won’t be doing very much other than our usual scary movies and Halloween candy! No parties to speak of! However, we will of course be doing a Samhain feast too.
Anyway, this week’s confession is all about Halloween Decor! I’ve been slipping Halloween into my planner all month and to be honest, I don’t do much extra by way of home decor, because I buy a lot of my permanent home decor at this time of year and have it out all the time!
Halloween Week in my Planner!
Just the other week I picked up one of the absolute bargain £4 planners in Wilkos mainly because it has such a stunning colour of purple! I decided to move out of my beloved Filofax Cover Story Flamingo and into the new cheap planner just because the dark purple colour felt like Halloween and Autumn to me! I started off by adding some charms! At the bottom we have a tiny little Deathly Hallows charm from our Harry Potter trip goodie bags. I have a bunch of them left and you can find them in my etsy store – Scarlet Moon Crafts.
The charms at the top are some of my favourites. First of all we have a cute little clay pumpkin which comes from Charlie’s Magpie and then there is a stunning Autumn/Halloween dangly charm which came out of the October Ugly Bug Subscription Box. I love how both of these look on the purple cover! It’s a little annoying that the pumpkin is on gold chain while the other charms are on silver, but I can live with it!
Flipping to the inside now and it is very much about Harry Potter! I tucked my Hogwarts ticket inside along with my Harry Potter address labels. The clips are made from Tin Pins and the Fox is from my Etsy Shop. The sticky notepad is a Target dollar spot one!
My dividers and dashboards are from Away With The Fairies and were actually a prize from the Edinburgh Meet Up that we hosted for the Scotland’s Planner Girls group. I love them and cannot wait to use the matching kit in November!
Finally, we can flip to my actual Halloween spread inside the planner! Like I said, I actually did 2 weeks dedicated to Halloween, just because I could. I am using a variety of stickers from Handcrafted by Sheree and Panda Planning.
Don’t forget to stop by and see what the other Plannerholics are up to for Halloween!
