H A Double-L O W Double-E N spells “Halloween”


I’ve temporarily taken down the Fall decor and busted out the Halloween stuff!

I pulled out my box-o-scariness…


… if you can call it “scary”


I’m more of a “cutesy” seasonal decorator.


I had most of my decor already, but I did make a few spray paint adjustments…


I painted the wreath black as well as the candle stick that I bought months ago.


For the wreath I decided to go low-key. I just painted a wreath black and hung it with a 1 1/2″ thick orange ribbon.


I was planning on doing more detail on the wreath, but once it was painted I really liked it plain.


I love my little crow perched up on top of the mirror. Subtle and spooky.


Open here I flung the shutter, when, with many a flirt and flutter, In there stepped a stately raven of the saintly days of yore.


I bought this little guy from the Dollar Spot and gave him a fresh coat of white spray paint for plastic.

I added a few subtle details…


Lots of spider webs



and candles


and hints of ribbon


and cute spooky little ghosts and pumpkins


and spiders.


Cutesy and glitter make me giddy.


And the Halloween mantle is DONE.


I turned my fall table piece into a Halloween one by adding some moss and ribbon.



Little bits of ribbon can make anything look festive!





I used a sharpie to draw a face on the lil’ punkin’


Isn’t it cute with the moss and spider and web?


Who can resist a mini truffle dish with moss, skulls, and a bow?


More cutesy stuff.


I wish I could take credit for these, but I bought them years ago on a mega after-Halloween sale.


So adorable.


And of course Halloween just isn’t complete with a spooky glitter tree!


Candy, anyone?


Here’s to a fun,
