Hey Hey! I’m not a big Halloween decorator. I know *GASP!* I just prefer general Fall decor to the creepy, spooky, scary Halloween stuff. If you follow me on Instagram (…and if you haven’t followed me already you can do that HERE) you probably saw a little sneak peek of the mice on my stairs. I decided to jazz those adorable little mice up a little bit by adding Gold + White Bow Ties and Hair Bows. I can’t even with the cuteness!!
I just used some gold foil cardstock I had on hand from Michael’s to make the little bows. I’ve used this little packet A LOT. It was completely worth the $5 I paid for it!
I placed my two, extra tall lanterns on the stairs and added some random fall gourds I bought at Aldi’s (<—LOVE this store, especially in the Fall!!).
Next I used a Gold Sharpie to write “Hey Y’all!” on a black faux pumpkin from Michael’s. So, a little bit about saying “y’all”. I was born and raised in Louisiana. I like to y’all but it feels really weird TYPING y’all. Just thought I’d point that out.
To get the lettering to look nice and neat, I went into PicMonkey, created my text and printed it. Then I taped it to the pumpkin and used a dull pencil to trace the lettering. This made an indention on the soft pumpkin (you can see the indented lettering on the picture below) and I traced the lines then filled in the letters. Super easy, took less than 10 minutes from start to painted finish.
I can see these little mice staying on my stairs through New Year’s! I mean Christmas Mice. right? And then they are dressed for a New Year’s Eve party! My mice are so fancy, you already know 😉
So there you have, my non-spooky, but super cute Halloween Stairs!
Have you decorated for Halloween at all? Do you prefer scary decorations?
