Happy Halloween, everyone! I finally have all of my spooky stuff out. I have to admit I sometimes dread decorating for holidays. The main reason is getting the stuff out of my storage space. It is really packed and is a tiny hallway connecting to the area under our basement stairs. (spooky and spidery in there!)
I changed most of the photos here to black and white even though everything I've used is mostly black or white. I like how black and white photos emphasize the contrasting textures in the items.
These are some sticky fake eyeballs from Target.
The skull and crow are also from Target.
I bought this vintage owl on Etsy. It used to be painted to look realistic but I sprayed it with black spray paint. I also used a lot of my vintage hobnail white depression glass on the mantel display.
The black velvet garland is a smooth contrast to the hobnail. I love hobnail pattern in black and white photos!
This is my every season rag wreath. I added a black rose garland to it that I tied to the wreath with twine. It's kind of a different and funky look. I also bought this garland at Target.
It's hard to see but I have black vinyl bat clings on the windows. They're from Martha Stewart Crafts and I purchased them at JoAnn's.
Here is a "faux" white pumpkin on my bench. I want to find real white pumpkins to carve with my kids this year.
This is how it looks in color photos.
Happy Halloween! I hope you enjoyed visiting my house.
