We are still decorating for Halloween around here. We will probably be finished on Halloween … just in time for trick or treaters, and just in time to remove it all the next day and replace it with a little autumn decor.
One of these days I will be prepared early. But clearly that won't be happening this year.
So here's our latest addition.
This room is the main room in our house. The room where we all gather. It's a large open floor plan with our dining table (not the dining room, but the dinner table where we eat most meals) and our kitchen. So it was only fitting that I decorate a room that we spend a lot of our time.
As you can see I tried to keep it within the same color scheme and theme as the formal dining room.
I actually didn't need to purchase anything to decorate this space, everything that I used I had on hand, I even had the bags of webs that I hadn't used from the year before.
My favorite piece is the skeletal system poster. It's not anything Halloween of course, but something I picked up while shopping in Old Towne Orange one weekend last year. I used Mod Podge to adhere it to a piece of board from an old poster frame.
The bats on the walls are paper bats I made for our front door a couple of years ago, and the owl is from the twins' Harry Potter birthday party. I love cheeky white rat looking at it through the cage. It's almost teasing it.
There was one new addition, but nothing I purchased. The black pumpkin in the crate is something that we've used for many years. It started off as a black cat pumpkin that I painted, then just became a piece of the regular Halloween decor each year following. This year though I decided to add a glittery spider web to it.
If you would like the instructions on how to make these glittery spider webs, head on over to The Centsible Life where I'm sharing the instructions.
You can do almost anything with these. You can make them in any size to make hair accesories, table runners, adhere them to your decor, or just hang them.
