This inspiration came from my very talented friend Bryanna. She however, hand cut 200+ bats last year for Halloween, YIKES! The idea of the different sizes were to give the affect of the bats flying away. Did it work?
The wreath was made after I attended Bryanna's Sprinkle. She had made pink ones, absolutely gorgeous. I wanted to make mine a little ..... dark...
Of course I had some inspiration from Pinterest as well. What did we do before Pinterest???
What's a Halloween without spiders, spider webs, crows, skulls, blood, potions, etc, etc, etc..
The books were covered with brown grocery bags, and inked, then labels adhered to each.
The candelabra was purchased at Goodwill, spray painted black and I added my infamous bookends to the top in place of candles.
The potion canister was a 50 cent thrift store find, I brought it home, spray painted it, and added the spooktacular label. EEK!!!
All in all I am very pleased how it turned out!!! I especially love how much money it (did not) cost!
Now onto a little tour of the rest of the Autumn decor...
