{Spooky} Halloween Vignette

Now that I have my shoe cabinet finished, I feel all motivated to decorate for the seasons.  I didn’t think I was going to decorate for Halloween, but then Beth over at Home Stories A to Z posted her Halloween Mantles Link Party, and I was inspired!  So I pulled out the Halloween box and got to work.  I needed a wreath, but I was trying to do this on the cheap, and wreaths are so expensive.  I found this little beauty at Goodwill.

Gorgeous, no?  Yeah, not really.  But once I pulled all the ribbon and hot glue off of her, gave her a coat of spray paint, and added some Spanish moss and a dollar store raven, she was perfect.

And the vase filler for my DIY cloche?  That came from Dollar Tree, too.

Only before I got my hands on them, they were quite different.  They were an almost fluorescent shade of white.  I swear they could glow in the dark.  I added a bit of my favorite Ralph Lauren glaze, and they were perfect!

But one of my favorite items has to be my faux mercury glass potion bottles.  I was actually considering making this very item when I came across them in Kohl’s.  They were on sale for $13.99 for the set, but I had a $10 off coupon.  All three bottles cost me $4!  I couldn’t even make them for that.

Everything else I already had, so this little vignette cost me under $10.  The kids love it when we decorate for the holidays, and I have to admit, I do, too.

Have a great weekend!

    Larissa-what a great space! It’s spook-tacular!! I never thought of spray painting a wreath, but am already thinking of what color to do for Christmas. :) I saw this really cool contest on Facebook the other day and I think your Halloween display would be an awesome fit. http://www.facebook.com/homesdotcom Happy Halloween!
