It’s officially five months until the best day ever – Halloween! At Home is making all Halloween obsessed folks happy lately by stocking Halloween decor early – well before all other retailers and just in time to help us Halloween heads have something to look forward to during the sweltering summer months.
I ventured over to my local At Home this afternoon and was pleasantly surprised to find several aisles full of Halloween joy. My absolute favorite find are these positively ghoulish skeleton gnomes. I collect gnomes, and once I saw these little guys I knew my collection would not be complete without them.

Happy Winter Solstice Halloween friends! I can’t believe we’re days away from Christmas and a new year. I hope that you have had a splendid 2018 and that luck and fortune will be with you in 2019! Speaking of luck…did you know, based on Ukrainian and Germanic folklore, a spider ornament on your Christmas tree will bring you good luck? The legend of the Christmas spider is also said to have been the story that inspired the popular decorating trend of draping silvery tinsel on the tree.
There is an ongoing superstition in Europe that spiders bring good luck – and the Christmas spider legend tells of a widowed mother living in poverty with her children. The children find a pine cone and tend to it with hopes that a tree will sprout in time for Christmas (which it did!). Once Christmas came, they could still not afford to decorate the tree. After the children fell asleep on Christmas, a spider is said to have spun a glittering web around the tree so that when the light hit it in the morning it shone and turned the web into gold and silver – quite a sight to behold. The family was overjoyed and also were no longer living in poverty from that point on.
To honor this legend and to help you bring a bit of luck into your new year, I’m going to show you how to make your own spider ornament if you do not have one adorning your tree yet! Keep reading to find out how:

Get ready to deck your halls with something frightful – like this wreath!
The entire time I was working on this easy DIY I could not stop singing “Making Christmas” – the musical number really adds a lot of authenticity to your work!
I broke my Christmas wreath last year accidentally, and I wanted a hint of spookiness to live on in my holiday decor, and Tim Burton’s “Nightmare Before Christmas” marries both spooky and Christmas perfectly.
