Halloween decor

I have never decorated the inside of my house for Halloween, even though we go all out for the outside. However, I've been so inspired by all of the great crafters in blogland that I've decorated my mantel and table. Most of this is with Dollar Tree decor and a few pieces we already had.

My inspiration came from HERE at Cap Creations and HERE and HERE at Mine for the Making, just to name a few. There are tons of others with great decor. Just visit some link parties and you'll see.

(Never mind that dinosaur of a tv up there. I so wish it was not there. I could really decorate a mantel if it were not. Hubby hates this whole set up too, so a total redo of the mantel is on the to do list. We have another nice TV but it doesn't fit in that hole... another story.)

Here are some close ups of the decor. I got my vases at the Salvation Army Thrift Store for $1.00 a piece, so I got two different sizes and I got the candlesticks for the vases for 50 cents each (I love it when I can beat the dollar store price!).

I filled the short vase with spiders and the bat is suspended there with glue dots.

I'll be back later to share my table decor.

I'll be linking up at Get Your Craft On and other parties listed on the side.


  1. Love it! I really love the vases with the crows on top.

  2. Celebrating Halloween in Russia is not as widespread as you. But I really like your tradition! The scenery is exquisite!


Thanks for your kind words! I love hearing from you.
