Halloween Decorating Ideas

I love the people I work with!  Our hallway is separated from the main part of the campus so we’ve become our own little family.  We can certainly have a good time together and we feed off one another.  The last couple of days we’ve experienced a door decorating frenzy. 

It all started off with Liz.  She found this adorable door on Pinterest.

This is how Liz’s version turned out.  I love the polka-dot bow tie! Too cute!

I got so excited about her door that I decided to do my own.  Here’s my Pinspiration followed by my own creation.

I do NOT get along with butcher paper!  There’s always a struggle and I end up on the losing side every time.  Brenda caught the decorating bug as she was helping me with my butcher paper battle.  Her door is adorable.  The monster’s tongue is actually sticking out but it didn’t show up too well in the picture.

At this point, the creative juices are flowing and all I can do is think about all the possibilities.  It was really hard to focus on what I was supposed to be doing.  Robin was sitting on the fence about whether or not she should join in the fun. Then Brenda and I covered her door with paper without consulting with her first.  It was a bold move but we knew she would forgive us.  Robin created the face herself but she was sure to show us how she felt about us!

I came up with another idea that I just couldn’t pass up, so I decorated Diane’s door as well.  I knew she would be a good sport about it.

Anybody who knows me would understand that this is completely uncharacteristic of me.  I don’t really enjoy creating bulletin boards and I can usually be heard grumbling whenever it’s decorating time.  I had so much with this that I have sketched ideas for the rest of the school year.  These doors were quick and easy which suits me perfectly.
We do have 2 more people decorating doors who didn’t quite get finished so I may have a follow up post next week.
Have a great weekend!
