I’m back from a two-week vacation in Greece and it’s time to update the house for fall with favorite Halloween decorations. Before I left, I visited two of my go-to places to shop for seasonal and holiday decor.
If you’re thinking, “wasn’t she just on vacation in July?” — you’re right! Incredible Iceland Trip Ten Day Adventure was a surprise arranged by our sons. My husband and I had already planned Athens and a Greek island cruise over a year ago. It was a present to ourselves to celebrate a milestone wedding anniversary. A fabulous, dream trip.
Although I’m still regrouping, unpacking, and doing laundry (while adjusting to a seven-hour time difference and jet-lag), it’s time to decorate for fall.
This week I’ll be shopping for mums and pumpkins, putting up decorations, and setting spooky tables, including Eye of Newt and Haunted Halloween Hallows Tablescape.
In the meantime, let me take you virtual window shopping for favorite Halloween seasonal inspiration and decorating ideas.
My latest craft project was to create a Halloween witch wreath. Poor Hilda ran smack into my front door! In addition to an aspirin for a bad headache, she’s Gonna Need a New Broom.
It’s been pouring down rain the last few days, so I decided it was a good time to work on a few craft projects and fall wreath orders for my new Etsy shop, debbeesbuzzboutique.
After retiring from my job as a marketing consultant at Boeing, I launched Debbee’s Buzz at the end of October last year. My first post featured another witch wreath, Bewitching DIY Halloween Wreath. That was followed by, DIY Trick or Treat Halloween Wreath.
Since I only had a handful of followers at that time (mom, my sister, BFF…), I thought you might enjoy revisiting those two Halloween posts, along with my latest witch wreath project.
Hoping the trio of Halloween wreaths will inspire your own seasonal decorating.
Learn How to Create a Vibrant Halloween WreathIn Bewitching DIY Halloween Wreath, I explained how to create a deco mesh style wreath called, Eye of Newt. Today’s post illustrates and explains how to tweak that process to create a second Trick or Treat wreath design.
I hope both Halloween wreath creations inspire your own decorations.

The seven-step approach can be easily applied or modified for any holiday or seasonal wreath. If needed, please refer to the previous post for more detailed instructions on some of the basic, general steps.

This year, after repainting the front door black, I decided it needed a new Halloween wreath with a lot of color.
I love decorating my home with Not-So-Scary Halloween Decor.
After crafting three bee-themed wreaths to decorate for a French Queen Bee Favored Things Party, I decided to conjure up something using the same deco mesh techniques.
Follow along the seven-step process that includes helpful, illustrative photographs of how it’s done.
