DIY Halloween Home Decor!

Hi everybody! It's my most favorite time of year again! Oh, how I looove Halloween! Every year I look forward to the leaves changing and counting down the days till the most spookiest of days. I think I get more excited than my kids,lol.
This year I decided to create some Halloween decorations that will serve me well year after year. Sure, I love buying decorations from the store but there's just something about making your own that makes it so much sweeter.
So just sit back and check out my creepy decorations. Hopefully I'll inspire you to create your own.

"Wicked" Wall Hanging

I made this wall hanging using 3 silver Dollar store trays. I primed them and spray painted them black and glued them together using E6000.

The paper collection is called Wicked by My Mind's Eye and it's just perfect for Halloween projects. The first tray is a creepy cemetary scene where the dead are waking up from their graves trying to make their way to the most awesome Halloween bash in town! I used several Tim Holtz dies to create the creepy ambiance.

The middle tray depicts the haunted house where the awesome Halloween bash is being held. Our gracious host greets us at the door and beckons us to go right on in. 

And here's the last tray depicting the inside of the house all decked out for the bash. I did a lot of fussy cutting on this project to create layers and a more realistic scene. The "flames" were created from pieces of a glittery floral pick from my local art supply. Pretty cool, don't you think?

Creepy Witch's Lair Countdown

I created this project for my baby girl who enjoys counting down the days till Halloween. She looks forward to changing the blocks each morning. This is such a fun and inexpensive project and can be changed for any holiday. All you need is 2 wood blocks, small wood base and some heavy weight chipboard.

I love the way the cauldron turned out, looks so grungy and rusty! Check out the little bottles on the shelf too. 

Last but not least....
Eek! Halloween Wreath

I'm loving the way my wreath turned out. I started with a grapevine wreath from the store, spray painted it black and added lots of dollar store finds. 

I grunged up the skull with black acrylic paint and some damp paper towels. Then I added lots of flowers, leaves and glittery berries. 

I spelled out "eek" using some wood letters painted blurple ( combination of black and purple silly), then topped with fine glitter.

Well, that's all for now. I had so much fun creating these spooky projects, now to get started on Christmas!

Goodbye, I'll see you all real soon!
