As you know, all of our spooky goods came from the dollar store this week.
For our next trick, empty 4 bags of Dollar Tree skulls into a box and lightly spray with a little
Krylon metallic silver.
Show some restraint; we aren't going for complete coverage. We want some creepy white and black to bleed through here.
Then we're going to use my adhesive addiction, Goop, to stack $1 vases on candlestick. Everybody's done this one by now, right?
These were extra tall vases, so I thought they were pretty cool.
Now, we need some moss, plastic spiders, and some of those fabulous silver skulls.
And we'll just do a little layering.
I originally was playing with silver glitter craniums as the final flourish.
A little frill of wire edged ribbon with shimmery arachnids...
...and let's start building our display in the entryway. I decided I preferred my glitter skulls in a heap on a dessert stand that I spray painted aqua. This usually sits on my dresser to organize accessories and perfumes. Shop the house, guys.
More silver skulls and moss lined my antique bread bowl, and then I added a hurricane and a chunky pillar. The hurricanes we just made were topped with rechargeable battery operated candles, and that cute little bust of Satan was also a Dollar Tree find.
The Creepy Cake Plate was yesterday's project.
The beaded charger is a clearance score from Z Gallerie, and it usually resides in Savannah's room.
I had to have this tinsel spider with googly eyes and the feather boa, also from the dollar store.
