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!
