Haunted Halloween Home Tour

Halloween has always been one of my favorite holidays, so when I was asked to take part in a Halloween Home Tour I jumped at the chance! We start out at my mantel where I made a a garland out of glitter skulls that I got at Dollar Tree. I also got the mini pumpkins at Dollar Tree, and I spray painted them ivory and black. I made the wreath up top with black and silver glitter pom pom's from Michael's. At the bottom of the mantel are my Be-Jeweled Jack-o-Lanterns made with pendants and pearls. On the kitchen counter is "Sally the Sparkly Skull" wearing one of my grandmother's vintage hats. Also in the kitchen is "Bessie the Cow" decked out in her witches hat and rhinestone necklace.
I took my gallery wall and spookified it using little stick on masks and fangs on the photos. I also took folded paper bats to make them more 3-D and taped them between the photos.
On my aqua table, I placed a glitter skeleton hand and a black glitter tree. I took a skull from Dollar Tree, painted it silver and sprayed it with silver glitter to place under the cloche. I went all out on my antique painted buffet using more painted pumpkins atop candle holders and old bird cage and an apothecary jar. I placed Dollar Tree black roses in the vase and placed "Oliver Owl" under an old clock. I opened the cabinet door and placed a black feather wreath and " Susie and Steve Skeleton" on some plates.
For the front door I made a Spooktacular Halloween Wreath using Dollar Tree supplies and placed some pumpkins in an antique painted dough trough. Every year we add to our light up Halloween collection and the neighborhood kids can't wait for the day the lights go up! Thanks so much for going on my Halloween Tour!
