I love the Wizard of Oz. Honestly, I love how totally weird it is. I love the underlying values that it teaches. I love it all. I wanted to bring a little Wizard of Oz into my Halloween decor because that Wicked Witch of the West is one sassy lady! She has some really awesome quotes too. Including the ever famous, “I’ll get you, my pretty and that little dog too!” I knew I wanted to bring that into my decor. I love the simplicity of this print and the little, faded witch hat too.

There have been some really fun ideas shared in the series that you really should check out. I will have a link to the posts at the bottom of this post if you want to catch up on what you have missed!
Today, I am sharing a few fun little printables that I made for my Halloween decor this year…
Halloween Sounds Free Printable on www.girllovesglam.com #halloween #decor #print
They are simple, but enough to make a fun little statement in your decor. On a side note, my husband thinks it is funny that the “boo” printable says “boob” when the two words are together. If your husband is more mature than mine, you might get away with using it in your house!

Confetti Polka Dot Vinyl Wall Accents

I have been on a polka dot kick lately. My husband totally teases me about it too. I wear them basically all of the time and so does my daughter. I can’t help it! They are cute and totally in style right now! There were a few spots in my little girl’s room that needed an extra something. I didn’t know what that was until I saw some polka dot confetti. I was instantly inspired to add a few dots to her wall in bunches to give it that something it was missing before! Before you see pictures, I must apologize, her room has exactly ZERO natural light. Pictures are really hard to take in there, so of course it all looks tons better in person, but you get the idea…

You will need…

*Silhouette or Cricut

*Indoor vinyl (I used a glitter one too)

Making polka dots on Silhouette studio via www.girllovesglam.com #cameo #silhouette #vinyl

First, in Silhouette Studio, make several circles using the circle tool. Make them in many different sizes. Cut out these on each color of vinyl.

Gallery wall before

Find a wall that needs a little “something” and start adding dots to it! I recommend starting with a few of the bigger ones and then work around those with the smaller ones. Make it be a little random so that it looks more confetti like and less polka dot like.

Adding confetti polka dots to a gallery wall can be a perfect girly accent. Idea via www.girllovesglam.com #decor #polkadot #vinyl

It literally takes about 3 minutes to put these up on the wall and it adds to much to the space! I couldn’t get enough of these sweet little dots, so I had to take on another wall too.

Shelf area before

This wall is fine on its own but I felt like it needed to be glammed up a little bit with something girly and cute.

I think these confetti polka dots were just what the doctor ordered for my little girl’s room! Not only are they so easy and totally on trend right now, but they can easily be removed when we get sick of polka dots! Like that will ever happen…

Christmas Pop Art

You know how sometimes you are doing your everyday routine and then all of a sudden, BAM an idea comes and smacks you like a ton of bricks? This happened to me in October. I remember because I was at a store surrounded by Halloween decor. Right then, I thought of Christmas decor. Weird, I know, but that is just how my brain works! Months later, my brainchild came alive.
 
I love having decor that is unique to my family and that adds a little humor to our home. I wanted to create pop art style pictures from our three favorite Christmas movies. What better way to do that than by adding some of our favorite quotes from the movies too?! I emailed my friends at Poppyseed Projects and they hooked me up with the stuff I needed to make this project come to life.
Here’s what you need to make your own…
Paint
Paintbrush
Vinyl (I only ended up using the red)
Poppyseed Projects photo texturizing cream
Vinyl cutter (I used my Silhouette Cameo)
Command Picture Hanging Strips
First, paint all of the plaques the color you want them to be. This took about 2 coats of paint.
Next, using your vinyl cutter, cut out the silhouettes of the characters that you want and the quotes that you want to add to them too. Put them onto your plaques. Paint the texturizing cream on over the top of the plaque to seal all of the vinyl onto the plaque and add a little texture to it.
Add the Command Strips to the backs of each of your plaques. I put two on the back of each of them. Hang them up where you want them to be! I love Command Strips because they let you hang things up without it being super permanent. You are done! It is a really simple project that makes a huge impact. 
Every time I walk by them, I can’t help but giggle. I love them! A short story about the quote we chose for the leg lamp… When Dave was a little kid, he watched A Christmas Story for the first time at his grandma’s house. When they get the leg lamp and the neighbor asks what it is and he turns and says “It’s a lamp you nincompoop!”, Dave fell off of his chair laughing because it was the first time he had heard that word. He wanted to have this quote on here badly and I let him! Now, we have the word “poop” in our Christmas decor. I love the quirk it brings to our decor. 
What quotes and movies would you use?

Falling Leaves Door Decor Tutorial

Pin It
I am excited to share the newest addition to my Fall decor with you today, my door hanger. Not only is it so easy, but it is inexpensive too! You can’t go wrong with that.
You will need…
8 felt leaf place mats (I found mine at the dollar store!)
Burlap garland or ribbon
Ribbon (this will be hidden)
Hot glue or Tacky Glue
Spray starch
Flat iron
You are probably thinking, a flat iron?! Yes! I didn’t want the leaves to be totally flat against the door, so I decided to give them a little dimension. Just spray some starch on each of the leaves. Curl the edges of the leaves with your flat iron, by clamping down and curving the flat iron as you pull towards the edges.
Lay out your leaves how you want them to be and glue them together. I used hot glue because my door hanger isn’t actually outside. If it is going to be outside, I recommend using something like Tacky Glue.
Put a ribbon through the top of the leaves. I poked a hole in one, and laced the ribbon through the center slit on another leaf. Tie the ribbon in the back. This is how it will hang up on your door.
Make a giant bow out of your burlap ribbon or garland and glue it to the top of your leaves.
Hang it up and enjoy! I know that there are a lot of people out there who are celebrating Christmas early and putting up their Christmas decor right now, but I just can’t do it! I love Fall decor too much! Do you have Fall at your house or are you decorating for Christmas already?
