My Halloween Decor
I'm so proud! I love everything I've put up this year and most of it came from the Dollar Tree and Target. Two of my favorite spots. Now that I've been off work (waiting on this little baby to arrive) I've had some spare time to get my Halloween decorations set-up. I know it's a little early, but with the baby arriving any day I just wanted to have everything in order. Hmmm...I think they call that nesting.
This is my entryway table and mirror. I went with a black and ivory theme for this table.
The silver and ivory pumpkins are from Target. The "Bat Motel" sign --$1 at the Dollar Tree along with the black crow that I attached to the silver pumpkin! The two glass candleholders were also $1 each at the Dollar Tree. And the Trick or Treat sign was $5 at TJ Maxx.
Moving on to my living room sideboard. I went with the more traditional black and orange here...
I got these frames from the Dollar Tree and spray painted them with a glossy black. I then purchased some halloween themed scrapbook paper at Michael's (nothing to cheesy though). I picked out some fun fonts on dafont.com, one is called Chiller and the other is called Circus Ornate, and printed the words "Boo", "All Hallow's Eve", "Spooky", and "31" on the scrapbook paper. Such a thrifty little project and I really like the way they turned out.
Oh, and I got the apothecary jar in the background at TJ Maxx for $8 and filled it with bags of candy corn from the Dollar Tree.
I also got this gorgeous glittered pumpkin at Target. I think it was $6.99. I did see a tutorial on how to make these on Martha Stewart.com, but I don't think $6.99 is a bad deal without having to put any work into it. I put my lovely glittered pumpkin on a candlestick that I picked up at, where else? The Dollar Tree!
And here's the full frontal...
