This week, I changed the autumn decoration over to Halloween fun! I ended up going with a black and silver theme this year.
I was inspired a couple of years ago by these pumpkins on Horchow (the white ones are from this year):
I got the idea for the smaller pumpkins under the cloche through Pinterest of course. It was as simple as pulling black lace/fishnet stockings over them. Here were my inspirations:
I used the leftover fishnet material to make cozies for my African violet planters. I also used the silver mercury glass votive holders that I bought for Christmas last year and put some silver ornaments in the black cups I found at Goodwill last year.
In the foyer, I pulled out a black cake stand to display one of my new creations.
After seeing a bird skeleton under a cloche on Pinterest, I decided to use a little skeleton from a Dollar Tree garland under the cloche from an old clock. (I repurposed another one here) I mod-podged some scrapbook paper to the bottom and hot-glued the skeleton to the base.
The black glass owl came from Home Goods last year and the skull in the frame was just printed from a free archive site. Cheesecloth gives the table the final spooky touch.
Lastly, in the powder room, I changed out the autumn beads in the hurricane for the tiny plastic skulls that originally came from the Dollar Tree.
