Yeah, yeah, I know. I haven’t written a blog post in.. I dunno, a year and a half now! It’s been on my mind. I just needed to sit down and do it. So. Here. I. Am.
Did you miss me?
I missed you.
So do you want a couple of last minute Halloween decor ideas? If you have a couple of hours I got your back.
Here is my
lovely spooky console table. Since I don’t have a fireplace mantle to decorate, I use this instead. Most of the decorations I already had. I shopped my house, found the candle sticks, stole the bird cage and fake birds from the kiddos, and the creepy rusty old lantern was from a thrift shop.
Candles can go both ways, either spooky or romantic. Black ones are definitely NOT romantic. I found these at Pier 1, but any color will do. Throw on some crows, gourds, leaves and you got yourself a Halloween display!
So to make the creepy tablecloth, run to the store and buy some cheese cloth. Lay it out on your table, so that there is plenty draping over the edge. Grab your scissors, then snip and rip.
I ripped the cheesecloth about every three to four inches. Straighten out as needed and voila! Instant tablecloth.
Next, add on an itsy bitsy spider. I just placed him on the cheese cloth, and he stuck there, like he knew it was his home.
If you have an iPhone or iPad, you should download the app Zombie Me or if you don’t go to zombieme.com. There you can take a picture of your seemingly cute and innocent little girls and turn them into vicious zombies. Like this…
Print that out or email to your favorite print shop for printing. When you have it, put it in your favorite photo frame. The spooky photo border is just some black cardstock cut with small scissors and an X-acto knife. And by little scissors, I mean little…Like your husband’s nose hair trimmers. Not really, that’s gross.
If you are feeling extra crafty, I suggest you make these plates from House of Earnest…
Aren’t it adorable?? All it takes are a scary rubber stamp, glass plates and some solvent based ink. Check out the how to here.
That’s it for now… Until next year.
Just kidding. Boo!
