I thought maybe it was too soon to be thinking of Halloween, but after seeing so many posts on it from visiting links at blog parties - it's time to re-think it. Now I'm not going to flood the home yet with bats and skulls, but I did want to share with you what I had done last year - mainly in our dining room...
This shot was actually featured this week in a
The skull heads are teal light holders from Michael's
Black glitter pumpkin Target
Wine bottle decals from the Dollar Store
Creepy gauze runners BigLots
Medium & small skulls BigLots & Michael's
Black pillow cases for slip covers
Centerpiece base is a wall mirror from Marshalls three yrs. ago
and the branch-like center candle holder (previously brown for Thanksgiving) I got about four years ago at Pier One.
The same light fixture in current dining room pictures, but I switched the glass shades for these three lanterns I had gotten on clearance about two years ago. To attach, I removed the lantern handle, and replaced with a long enough screw to pass through and catch the bracket of the fixture. The orange outdoor panels (I found online at Target also two years ago) really help to wake up the space (POP it).
The winter wall art gets a new look when paired with these creepy details. You can really see in this shot, all the natural bright light that comes into this space, which is why all the dark colors together in this small space can work.
And this is my friend - SKULLY...
He serves up candy on the 31st.
Sephora got a little spooked when Skully
came out - but they made friends... :)
For the 31st, I added black bat silhouettes. I was already cutting
a batch for a store party (more about that in a future post).
The candy table and my little pumpkin.
I fell in love with it because of the stem - it just looked wicked!
Going to need to find another place for "Beware"
since this door is now black...
