Well, at least it's just in time for Halloween... barely!
If you've been reading my lil' ol' blog for a while first of all, THANK YOU! You know that I like to switch out my decor on a console table in my kitchen a lot...especially for holidays.
October 1st came and it was time for a Halloween vignette (even though I only had 2 Halloween decorations). I talked to you guys here about being inspired by all the spooky fun Halloween decor in blogland instead of just fall leaves and pumpkins like I usually do. But, I didn't want to spend a lot.
So, I shopped my house and decided to disassemble some ugly old pumpkin decorations that I had purchased for 90% off. I got 3 new decorations out of my "junk". I came up with this:
And, this (not in my vignette) which is my island centerpiece :
Since I don't have a cricut (or whatever that other fancy cutting machine is) I spent $5 on this sign pictured below from TJ Maxx, I think it was well worth it. Can you imagine the time it would've taken me to cut a board down to size, paint it, drying time, rough it up, and then stencil it... ummm, way too long.
I got the creepy cloth at the dollar store. I was so excited to find it for a buck because a package of it at Wal-Mart was $4... which seemed like a lot for a bag of cheap snaggy thread.
This cute BOO is something else I could've made... laziest blogger ever. You can buy these wooden cut outs and some cute scrapbook paper at Hob Lob, then spray paint the letters, wait for it to dry, then modge podge the paper to the letters and add the festive black fuzzy ribbon hanger. (You just got a free random tutorial!)
Again, how much would it have cost? Probably around $10 for the wood, fuzzy ribbon and scrapbook paper (assuming you already have modge podge and spray paint like any good crafty blogger should. ;) If you don't have that stuff stuck in the back of your craft closet, then add another $10, plus your very precious time.
I bought this for $5.99 at TJ's. Again, money well spent in my opinion!
I wanted a wreath for around the BOO but never found a good one and ran out of time to make one (obviously)
And finally, these are my 2 Halloween guys that I got several years ago on major after Halloween clearance at where else, TJ Maxx (don't you think they should start paying me for all the free advertising I give them!?... seriously!)
I don't know what kind of weird Halloween guys these are supposed to be but I liked them.
Finally, my Halloween Vignette...
