Witch's Workshop

When I added Halloween decor to my fall vignette I envisioned a witch's  workshop. Not having a witch lying around I decided to make my pumpkin the witch. I added a witch's hat that I made for my daughter when she was in Pre-K. Then I added ravens, cob webs, a witch's broom, tattered books and a white owl.  I filled my lantern with a ghoul.  Here's how it turned out;



I Bought bat silhouettes from the dollar store, glittered them and made a garland. The skeleton, ravens  and black fabric all came from the dollar store last year.


The ghoul in the lantern came from  the dollar tree and the owl is from Marshalls last year.




The witch's broom was in my stash, I don't remember where I bought it.



The spiders came from Pier one on clearance last year and I bought the spider webs at Walmart.


Happy Halloween! I'll be joining these great parties this week,

  3. Ooh wow, I didn't think spooky could look so elegant. I agree with Sandy, your Dollar Tree items look high end.

  12. This is so awesome! I love it. Especially because it's not the traditional colors. The white and black only give it such a spookier feel. Great job. Patty

  29. I looove your decorations, we actually have a lot in common with the black and white theme this year!!! I usually use my vintage decorations, but ran across my Grandmothers copy of Edgar Allan Poe's works, and I flew with 'The Raven' theme...If you have a minute come check it out! I'm going to go peek at your blog now. Hugs, Debbie @ Cottage Hann~Me~Downs
