Halloween Kitchen Decor

Here is part one of my Halloween decorating. In an effort not to have one lengthy post, I'll post a room per day.




For this little arrangement above my sink, I took some random glass containers and filled them first with fake moss from the dollar store. I added some leftover "berry" sticks I had lying around. Then, layered on that, I added some small snakes I found in a package at the dollar store too. I think it gives is a good witchy feel.


I made this little tag by using a pre-made one, then writing in a scripty font with a Sharpie pen. After that, I aged it by blotting it with a wet tea bag. It still looked a little too new, so I singed the edges with a lighter.

I made the apothecary jar by gluing a $1 candlestick to a $1 jar I found at Dollar Tree. The "eyes" are made by adding some water and then some black Styrofoam, floral-arrangement-filler beads. Cheap and creepy!


Keep reading to see the rest.
