I have been so preoccupied lately with projects that are not craft related that Halloween really sneaked up on me this year. I usually have my decorations up after my birthday in August (I know, crazy), but not this year. I finally got them all up this past weekend.
I didn’t go nearly as all out as I usually do, primarily because I know I’ll be taking them down in a few weeks. But, I did get the mantle looking a little Halloweenish.
I was going to do black flowers in the vase, but opted for fall flowers instead. Now I won’t have to change them for Thanksgiving. 🙂 The BOO picture frames I made last weekend from this post.
I used one piece each of spider, orange, and sparkly black scrapbook paper for all three frames, orange raffia, three black frames from the Dollar Tree (they came 2 in a pack), black plastic spiders from Party City, and orange rhinestones for the spider’s spot. I really like the way they turned out.
I also picked up some super cute Halloween food items:
Some spooky Halloween pasta and totally awesome skull and crossbones glasses that say “Name Your Poison”. I got them all at World Market.
So, I now think I’m ready for Halloween, and for celebrating Drusilla’s birthday!
