I am so glad that I decided to skip Fall decorating and go straight to Halloween decorating! I have been having so much fun getting in the Halloween spirit. Although if you follow me on Instagram, some would say maybe a little too much fun.#skeletonfun Today, I am sharing Halloween decorating in the entry and living room. I decided to go with a slightly spooky/creepy theme. I can’t go full on creepy because while I don’t mind freaking other people out, I don’t want to creep myself out. I am jumpy enough as it is, plus I live here. By the way any cobwebs in the photos are 100% legit. I stopped cleaning in September to bring a sense of authenticity to my Halloween decor- except cat puke. I pick that stuff up a.s.a.p.
This year I shopped the house and our yard and only made one small trip to Target. Branches, old books and flat black spray paint were my go to items. I finally feel like I was able to tie all the things I pick up on clearance into a cohesive theme. I hope you enjoy it!
I spray painted the candelabra and faux floral picks black. I also added a spider and crow from past Halloweens.
I found the black finger in my costume box. The jar is pretty but do you really want to open it? See, a little creepy…
I pray painted some sticks black and stuck them in a vintage champagne bucket and added spanish moss. I thought it would be fun to get our old ouija board out. It has been put to good use although not by me.
I added some eyeballs to the plants.
I repurposed our old dollar store Christmas village into a haunted village. I spray painted the village black, dry brushed it with silver paint and added a little orange glitter for sparkle. I am so glad I pulled it out of our garage sale box.
Across the room I added some black gauze fabric and crows. Yes, there is an eyeball or two in the birdcage.
If the fireplace was telling a story, it would be about a kooky witch who came home from a hard day of conjuring. She set her cape and hat by the fireplace and settled in with a good book of spells.
I added more spray painted sticks and flowers.
I made the spell books using a tutorial I found on POPSUGAR. I think they look spooktacular.
Thanks so much for stopping by and letting me share my entry and living room Halloween decorating. Hopefully I will be sharing the family room and kitchen next. Does it feel like a witch lives here? What can I say? If the broom fits- fly it.
