Last-minute Halloween decor
October 17, 2012
Halloween is two weeks away... and I haven't put up any decorations. The sad thing is, I have a ton of them just sitting in a bin in the garage, I just don't have the energy to get them out. What's with my holiday apathy all of a sudden? I'll chalk it up to my postpartum state (like I do with most things).
Maybe you're like me, or maybe you actually have the desire to decorate. If so, I've got some cute ideas for some last-minute DIY decorations that you can create and get up this weekend. Some of these are so cute and would look so good in my house, that I may just have to find the energy to decorate after all.
