Ok. Ok. Halloween is totally over, I know. But I still really want to share pictures of our Halloween decorations with you. We had a great time painting, taping, hanging and cutting. We re-used a lot of our decorations from last year and added a few new ones.
The table was my favorite thing to put together. I spray painted about 10 mini pumpkins metallic black, as well as some wine bottles. I also collected some branches from the back yard and spray painted them black as well. I filled wine glasses with glitter-covered skulls that I had already, and pulled apart last year’s feather wreath to fill a glass jar with black peacock feathers. A fantastic spread of food certainly helped, too!
It really doesn’t have to cost a fortune or take a ton of time to decorate for any holiday or party. Think about what you have around the house already and what items can be grouped together thematically. Using items you already have, especially using them in new and different ways — like the vintage photos I found in my attic — will make your holiday decorations more personal and more fun for both you and your guests. And, a coat of spray paint can certainly come in handy!
