Creepy Entry Vignette

It is 100 degrees here and I am decorating for Halloween.


Something about that just doesn't feel right.
I will share a little project I did a while back.
I bought this ceramic boot from the thrift store and painted it black.
It reminded me of a witch's boot. I plan to place some dried Fall flowers in it.
Before...



After...

I creepified the entry table with "poison", pumpkins, ghosts, witches, crows, and a spider or two.

I used the idea from Shawn's wedding to cut some branches for a scary tree.

A little witch has landed amongst the crows and spiderwebs.

a jar of frogs and spiders...


The labels were from The Graphics Fairy. I printed them and wet the paper, and then sprinkled with instant coffee crystals to age the labels. I have taped them to balsamic vineger, cherry syrup, and an empty bottle.


This little pumpkin "snowglobe" I have had for years...

You know I can't have a post without a little chalkboard...

and some cute little ghosts...


Why not place a skull under a cloche?
The skull and fake barbed wire were from Dollar Tree.



A cauldron of candy eyeballs and gummy bodyparts...
I guess only the grandson will eat those.



A nice little crow...


Halloween nesting dolls...


I bought this broom from a festival where the man was making them. The color is great for Halloween.



I don't usually decorate for Halloween, but I decided it would be fun, and not too scary. As soon as Halloween is over, this tabletop will transform into Fall and owls for Hudson's birthday party. I will share that in November.
In the meantime...I am glad you stopped in for a "spell".
Happy Halloween.

You did a great job on your Halloween decor! I have not decorated for Halloween in many years and then my daughter usually did the honors.
Yes - Another hot day!

What fun decor and it's JUST RIGHT!

Really well done, but not too creepy for your little guys.

I can smell the candy corn in the air.

This weather isn't cooperating with decorating for fall, is it? Hopefully it will cool down soon!

Hope you have a great weekend!

I love your Fall decor. I was admiring your tree with the crows...I have been waiting for just the right branch in my yard.
