My Halloween House

  Well guys, I thought I'd show you a few things I did to decorate my home this Halloween.  All of the decor was done really cheaply.  Here are some of the things I did. 

I made this Halloween candelabra.  I show how to do it here.

This is how I decorated my foyer.

Remember this cabinet from this post?  Well, I added some Halloweeny touches there too.

A few dollar store items made this little vignette.  This is basically $2 worth of materials. 

I got the fake hand for like $2 last year.  The glass is fake from the dollar store and the flask is actually mine.  Don't judge!

To make this vignette, I took a creepy print I found online and painted spooky eyeballs onto it.  Then I photocopied a school picture of my son and made that spooky.  I added some fake broken glass, a plastic cauldron that I've owned forever, a skull that I've also had forever, and some branches from my yard.  The eyeball in the skull is actually a bouncy ball that my son plays with.  The crow is from the dollar store. 

Don't worry this is just a black and white copy of my son's school picture.  I added vampire teeth, red eyes, silver hair, and pointy ears with paint markers.  You can easily add spookiness to your home this way.

Adding crows and cheap skulls around the house is also an easy way to make it more Halloweenish on the cheap. 

These chair covers were from the Christmas Tree Shops last year.  They were about $3 a piece but you could easily make some of your own.

I set out a bowl of glittery skulls and placed a dollar store crow on them.  I bought about 20 of these little crows and placed them all over the house.

This candelabra is just a Goodwill find that I spray painted black.  It cost a $1.  Just add some fake cobwebs and spiders and you're good to go. 

Spooky, isn't she?  I swear everytime I see it, it scares me.  Basically all she is a wig form that I painted, a wig, some pillows and a blanket.  She really creeps me out. 

Some of the food I put out for my party. Of course it was all Halloween themed. 

Happy Halloween Folks!
