halloween home decor

Hello friends! Today  I want to share with you our “Halloween home decor”. First, I used a fall wreath and a stretchable spiderweb on our main door.

I used the same stretchable spiderweb on a sculpture and on a bookshelf. Plus I added a big spider which Marco loved (I think it’s because his favorite book is “The Very Busy Spider” by Eric Carle).

I added some crows to our living room to give a more “scary” feeling.

One jar, a led candle and a chalkboard tag made a nice decoration of our coffee table.

Marco was fascinated watching the led-candle.

I also bought two small pumpkins for the coffee table.

As you see, with a just a few details you can create a “Halloween atmosphere” that can even last for a while with a toddler around the house.

Happy Halloween!

tablecloth

Hi folks! This is another *super* easy sewing project: a tablecloth.

I chose this red and white fabric to give my dinner table an “italian trattoria” style.

For my small, rectangular, IKEA dinner table, I used 2 yards of fabric.

You’ll need to place the fabric on the wrong side over a flat surface and fold the edges over about 0.5”.

Then, fold it again and pin around the edge of the hem and start sewing along the edges, removing the pins as you sew.

After less than an hour, I got a beautiful tablecloth for our dining table.  I’m no expert at sewing, but trust me when I tell you go ahead and try it! You’ll feel great finding out the beautiful projects you can do for your home!
