Now that my boys are getting older they are excited to decorate for the holidays. Sometimes I think they are more excited about decorating than they are for the actual holiday! Halloween is a holiday that they love to decoate for, but I admit we barely have any decorations. I also don’t have a lot of room to store decorations so sometimes I buy disposable decorations I can throw away.
So this Halloween we decided to do something different thanks to a simple and Free website from HP called HP Creative Studio. First I got sent a bunch of great crafts, coloring sheets, and other Halloween printables. My mission was to decorate and enjoy the spirit of Halloween without spending a lot of money. We decided to decorate our family room since we are in there the most but have no decorations in there.
From a banner:
To a skeleton (I didn’t have the brads to connect the joints so I just taped him) – yes I printed him right from our printer and taped him together:
To a bunch of cards and coloring sheet:
And finally a cover for our lightswitch:
And here is a printable template for us to us to carve our pumpkin this weekend:
These are simple printables that my boys and I had so much fun cutting, coloring and displaying. They actually are already asking about Christmas decorations – see what I mean about more excited about decorating than the acutal holiday! Honestly even though these sheets are just printed on regular paper, to me they are just as fun as expensive decorations! Such a great idea and something I can do from home!
On the HP Creative website you can even customize some of the items with special messages or photos – like a cool printable photo cube! I think I may even print some out and laminate them so I can save them for next year. If you are having a Halloween party this would be an especially cheap way to decorate. The site is super easy to navigate and print from, I can’t believe I never checked it out before.
Did you know that HP Creative Studio and Snapfish by HP are a great way to continue on with your holiday fun? Other than printing fun from HP, you can order customized photo books, seasonal cards, invites and fun home décor items at great prices through Snapfish!
