Welcome back! I have many more Halloween haunts to share in the den today.
Spiders have run amok and I’ve pulled out all things black and spooky!
I found the black paper spiders at Michael’s a while back and use painters tape to attach them each year.
I love using the boy’s silhouette pillows in here for an extra touch of black at Halloween. Mother and I made these when they were toddlers.
I picked up the creepy Dollar Store pictures many years ago. They came unframed, so I also purchased Dollar Store frames to make them look more substantial. I’ve had the spooky hand for years – picked it up in New Orleans while visiting the Uptown Acorn.
We downloaded spooky art to the Frame TV, which I just LOVE over a gaping black tv screen. On my acrylic book stand I have an old favorite from when the boys were little – Nightmare Before Christmas.
I always keep the old Nancy Drew books of Mother’s out on the curio but I especially love them at Halloween. I dressed up felt witch hats from the dollar bin with ribbons for the two dogs. Back by popular demand, I chopped off the heads of the family silhouettes. This year I used my cricut to cut out blood drips.
The coffee table always gets a colorful fall bouquet, candy corn and my skeleton hand! I love decorating with candy at the holidays and a bonus is that I hate candy corn so it isn’t even remotely tempting. Seasonal magazines are also nice in holiday decor and something you probably already have lying around.
Since we use the living room more for puzzles and games now, I moved the haunted typewriter here!
And, of course, y’all already know that we’ve been listening to the darling (pumpkin shaped!) It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown, Haunted Mansion and Nightmare Before Christmas vinyls on the Victrola.
Looking towards the kitchen you can get a better perspective of the room as a whole.
A rare pic of Elsa without her little sister attached to her hip.
We have a big weekend ahead, with homecoming at both schools. I can’t wait to share more!
