I’m still decorating for Halloween.
I’m in a rush to finish so that I can ENJOY it.
So. . . .please forgive me for my very brief post today. In a few minutes, I’m off to try and figure out how to get a witch in my front yard. And beast eyes in Phoebe’s windows. Oh! And I can’t forget the sinister subjects and creepy birds that need to go in the upstairs bedrooms.
These are very important things that I’m up to. Life changing things. So. . I’m off.
But before I go, I’ll just show you a few pictures of my bookshelf and mantle that have turned slightly spooky. Most of the things that I have used as decor, I bought at the Dollar Store or at the Thrift Shop. I’m thinking the most expensive thing was actually the cheapest made, a styrofoam black glitter pumpkin, I bought for the rock bottom price of $2.50 at Target:)
So stay, and look around. I’ll be back tomorrow with more Halloween goodies to share.
Hint: Its a quick little lunchbox EASY treat for your kids. . .or in my case. . me:) Have a great Sunday!
The bookshelf before October. It’s a bit bluk. Boring. Cute kids need a makeover. Nobody wants to see bright shiny cute faces when ghouls are around.
I filled it with branches for $1 at the Dollar Store. I bought a few more leafy stems at Hobby Lobby for $2 a stem.
Dollar tree rocks to fill the vase.
Holla! Dolla! A spooky scarf to cover up those horribly cute faces on the picture gallery.
A few Halloween Lights. A BOO! sign and some candles. I think it sets the tone. We’re horribly frightening and might bight your head off if we get the chance.
Next. we move to the fireplace. I had witch legs hanging out of it, but my menacing husband thought it was too much. “Too much?” I cried. “It can never be too much at Halloween.” Oh well. I’ll turn him to a toad while he’s sleeping.
More pumpkins, and scary leafless black trees. Your home is not complete until you own a leafless black tree.
My favorite parts of my mantle are the candles and the lights. In the morning I wake up early and light each and every candle, plug in the string of lights and just sit. I could live in that moment forever.
