I’ve been having fun working on things to update my Halloween décor. Heavily black and white/cream, with accents of paler orange tones. Mr. Chocolate’s a little nervous that we haven’t even gotten out the actual Halloween bin(s) yet!
One easy way to decorate is to swap out pictures in frames that are already part of your décor. Easy to bring consistency and seasonal updates together. No one makes that easier to do than The Graphics Fairy! I found this guy whom I’ve nicknamed “Skelly” at Karen’s wonderful site:
How cute is a skeleton in a top hat? Using my graphics program, I gave him a bow tie and a mustache, generated the text, and printed on a sheet of paper from DCWV’s “Ghosts and Goblins” stack. Done and done.
In keeping with the “accent what you have” idea, I had some scraps of paper that I loved and wanted to use them up so I made some pinwheel medallions, combining different papers / patterns. Wasn’t sure what I was going to do with them until I decided to make a “demi-garland” since I didn’t make enough for a full garland. Was passing by a piece of faux stained glass I made years ago (BB…Before Blogging) and….
An old window I picked up and decorated using Plaid’s Gallery Glass.
For the centers, I downloaded a skull image from the internet, printed on cream cardstock and punched with a 2” round punch.
