{Last years Halloween Decor}

This is a repost from last Halloween – i havent been able to decorate for Halloween yet this year, but i am hoping to start today.  As you can see i love creepy, scary Halloween!  Not much cutesy stuff for me.

As soon as i get this years done, i will be sure to post.  Cant wait to unpack the doll heads!

(I just noticed all my pics still have my Show & Tell watermark, if you remember, i changed my blog name about a year ago.  And im not going to go back and change the watermark, oh well!)

I got these awesome lanterns a few years ago but they have been in storage all this time, I really want to paint them white, but the dingy green/gray will work perfect for halloween

I love creepy halloween and old doll heads are perfect.  I collected a bunch of dolls all through the year at goodwill for my “big halloween plans”, but sadly they didn’t get done…

I got this old bird cage for free a while back and had intentions since I got it to clean out the old vines that someone grew inside of it, but hadnt gotten around to that either.  But luckily for me, it works for halloween :)

Then I pulled out my shutters from last year, propped those on the mantel, added a skeleton thingy and called it good.  In case you cant tell by the pic, I took 4 old shutters from goodwill, painted them black and distressed them.  Then I just layed them out on the floor and screwed all 4 together all crazy crooked like – I love how they turned out and love that they take up so much space.

On my dining table I just put some apothecary jars with some mice, spiders and eyeballs, then the glass beakers will have dry ice in them tomorrow when the family is over for dinner.  I considered for a minute getting some real mice and my sons tarantula for the jars, wouldn’t that be awesome and so yucky??!!  Love it, but im not gonna do it…im nice like that!!

    Weird and spooky, great mix for Halloween! Love it! Especially the doll heads…saw a pic the other day from a girl who bought green glow sticks and put them behind the dolls eyes….freaky! Can’t wait to see what you do this year!

    Doll heads! Awesome! I’m stealing your idea. Works perfect since I never had a baby doll as a child. :) (This whole reply sounds creepy doesn’t it?) :)
