Happy Halloween

With Halloween fast approaching I decided to make a vignette to celebrate the season. I like  black and white Halloween decor and I like it kinda of creepy but not too gory. I like skeletons, I know strange right? so I incorporated skeletons and something that scares me to death in real life RATS ...eww! 









peek a boo! see the ghoul peeking from behind the candelabra?



 







Eeek !!! Rats


 The skulls I bought a couple of years ago, they're from a kit  by Martha Stewart.  I glittered them in a mixture of glass glitters in silver and clear. I didn't want the skull and bones to be perfectly glittered, it kind of looks like sparkly skin melting from the bones, well at least that was the intention. I added spiders and dollar store pumpkins that I spray painted silver, the creepy fabric is also from the dollar store. The spiders are from Pier One and the giant white owl is from Marshall's.The creepy candelabra is from the dollar store as well as the ghoul peeking from behind it, the raven is also from the dollar store. I couldn't spread the vignette out because of lack of space so I tried to give it depth by layering the elements from front to back . I had a lot of fun putting together this creepy vignette. I hope you had fun looking at it.
