Halloween Victorian Doll House, 2017

 Today, I will be sharing how I decorated the outside of Nelson Crest, my Victorian doll house, for Halloween......

But first, I want to thank these hostesses for featuring my post, Quote the Raven Buffet, from last week's parties!!

Thanks to Laurie, over at My Husband Has Too Many Hobbies, for featuring it from last week's Snickerdoodle Create- Bake- Make Party!!
Thanks so much, Laurie!!

And Thanks to Charlene, over at A Pinch of Joy, for featuring it from last week's Busy Monday Party!!!
Thanks so much, Charlene!!!

Thanks to Bev, over at Eclectic Red Barn, for featuring my post, Fall/Halloween in the Kitchen, from last week's Thursday Favorite Things Party!!
Thanks so much, Bev!!

Please stop by and link up to these great parties!!

I like to decorate my Victorian Doll House for all the Holidays and seasons......
If you have not visited my blog before and read the story of Nelson Crest, please click HERE to read about the wonderful man, Roy Nelson, who built my doll house for me and made my childhood dream of owning a Victorian Doll House come true!!!!
 Nelson Crest is all decked out for Halloween......

Let's start by looking at the side yard on the left......
I know it may not be to scale but many of the Halloween decorations were bought at Michael's and are part of Lemax's Spooky Town Collection.....
A witch, casket , spooky clock and a Halloween tree.....
Bones are scattered about the yard.....
Gravestones and a spooky tree trunk.....
Let's take a look now at the front of the house......
On the upstairs balcony.......

A gargoyle sits on the door frame.....
Jack O Lanterns and a ghost rest upon plant stands......
A ghost overlooks the yard from the railing that a skeleton hangs from.....
A "Skull" Tree.......
Pumpkins, tombstones and caskets....
A Mummy........
Some cute Trick or Treaters on the front porch!!
Another ghost greets those who dare to walk up the sidewalk!!
A spooky birdhouse.....
More ghouls and graves and caskets.....
More tombstones around the side yard...
The right side of the house......
An Autumn tree....
A skeleton bench.....
And more graves and tombstones......
Nelson Crest is all ready to except Trick or Treaters......
If they dare!!!
I hope you enjoyed seeing Nelson Crest all decked out for Halloween......
In my next posts, I will be sharing my Evening Tour of my Fall and Halloween decorations inside our home....

And I still want to share how our back and front yards look in October with all the unseasonably warm weather we have been having.....
And I also still have many photos from our church's Harvest Tea to show you.....
So I hope you will be back to visit again soon.......

  1. Debbie, Such a beautiful doll house. I love the windows and curtains. You certainly have it ready for Halloween. Pretty tea time tables too. Blessings, xoxo, Susie

  2. This is so fun! I have been wanting to start a miniatures house - I have one I found at a flea market, but the inside is still naked. Looooovvvee. Pinned for later! Found you at the Talk of the Town Party hosted by Sadie Seasongoods, and now a new follower.

  3. OMG, that dollhouse is gorgeous..and you've decorated it so nicely for Halloween! The tea tables are gorgeous and love the color!

  4. Oh my! Loving this little house for Halloween. You do such an awesome job. Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  5. Debbie I love your dollhouse decorated for Halloween. I am crazy about Dollhouses! I am not sure if you ever saw my posts over at my old blog, Junkaholics Unanimous. I think I shared my Christmas dollhouse in 2012 and 2013. I will be sharing all about it at Follow The Yellow Brick Home this year too! I think every time I visit your blog how much fun it would be to be a kid and visit your home!

  6. Your Halloween decorations for your little house are so cute! It must be fun to decorate it for the different holidays!

  7. You've given me some ideas for my H. house; thank you. I also love the Lemax stuff; am not a purist when it comes to scale; I like what I like! Love the gorgeous lace you used for curtains; Venetian lace makes such great valances! One of my favorite things I've done is use H. spiderwebs to make mist/smoke coming from a cauldron; sometimes I use a piece of fishline/monofilament to make the smoke "stand up straight."

    1. Kathy,
      Thanks again for stopping by and for your kind words. I could not find any other way to respond to your comment but here...

  8. This is so fun! Your Halloween decors are very cute
    Hugs Alessandra

  9. You've outdone yourself again this year.....Nelson Crest is ready for trick or treaters! I have been so busy that I didn't have time to do any Halloween decorating on my little houses....maybe next year! hugs...

  10. Nelson's Crest looks so spooktacular Debbie. I love dolls houses and your is stunning. Roy Nelson is a very talented maker. All the small Halloween details you added, WOW!! Who cares if it's not all to scale, everything together creates such a lovely visual impact. Love it!!

  11. Debbie, I love how you deck your cute Victorian House out for Halloween! It's really fun. Thanks for sharing with SYC.

  12. Very beautiful Victorian doll house. I love the colors of paint. Very sweet. Always nice to stop by and say hello. Have a wonderful weekend.

  13. Every detail is delightful, Debbie! Thanks for sharing at Vintage Charm!
