I’m aware that it’s a week into November, but I have to share our Halloween theme before we’re too far gone. Right before Halloween last year I found some amazing inspiration from Brooklyn Limestone. Every Halloween Stephanie goes above and beyond with her amazing ideas. Unfortunately it was too close to the big day so I promised myself I would follow through the next year. So here we are all decked out and ready for some serious trick or treaters!
simple DIY wizard of oz decor
I used a projector to focus images of the flying monkeys and wicked witch on black poster board. I traced the images with white chalkboard pen and cut them out.
You can see our yellow brick road (so easy with some yellow chalk although I did have a major fingernail situation when I was hurrying to finish!)
Our yellow brick road led to the front door, which was wrapped in green plastic table cloths to look like the entrance to the Emerald City. A creepy sign was draped in cobwebs.
Witch legs peeked out from under the house right near the front door. I scored those witchy shoes at a local thrift shop for $2.
And of course no Oz theme would be complete without the ruby slippers…
I loved how everything turned out and it was pretty inexpensive. Now I just have to come up with a theme for next year!
