It is October and it is time for some Halloween posts! Our home is never full decked out for Halloween, but I do like adding a few touches here and there. It is a holiday that I don’t buy new decorations for, but if I find some great things on clearance or at yard sales, I pick them up. Every Halloween, we host family for dinner before we head out to trick-or-treat so a tablescape and some party decor is always on the Halloween agenda. This Halloween, I wanted to set up a “lab” in our back porch full of poisons, witches brew and monster mucus. Halloween printables made is so simple and I am happy to be sharing them with you today.

To start the lab, I bought Halloween jars at Target. I knew the kids would love them and I will either fill them with candy for them to take home or serve the “witches brew” in them for the night. They jury is still out on that one.
The get the full “lab” together, my Happy Halloween printable and Halloween label printables were so helpful. All I did was print off the Happy Halloween printable and put it in a black 8 x 10 frame. Then, I grabbed a bunch of buckets, jars and vases that I had lying around and decoupaged the Halloween labels to each of them.
After the labels were on and the glue dried, I started grabbing other things I had on hand to finish the lab. A few feathery black owls are a must for watching over lab business and a black feather wreath and glittery spider were exactly what the doctor ordered for a backdrop.
A few mummies, a crow, a black tree and a rickety fence were much-needed additions .
Of course, I couldn’t leave my lab jars empty so I filled them with different things for the kids to pick out and put in their Halloween buckets. I will have enough for trick-or-treaters to choose from when they come over too.
I think it would be fun to use these Halloween printables for a guessing game too. Put the Halloween printables on buckets with lids that the kids can’t see through and have the kids reach in and guess what the “monster mucus”, “witches brew” and “spider venom” really are.
The black Halloween sign was a yard sale find and the spider web garland was a clearance pick up from Target last year. I turned an old sewing drawer upside down to hold the Halloween jars and set a Dollar Tree skeleton on the drawer.
The Halloween lab is ready for business!
Halloween decor doesn’t have to be expensive or elaborate. You can shop your home for things that would fit a Halloween table. Go through your recycling bin for things to decoupage the Halloween printables to and in no time you will have a Halloween lab set up without any money spent.
What are your plans for Halloween this year? Do you go all out for Halloween?
