I hope you are all having a bootiful day! After creating a blinged-out diva display, which my little Diva loved, I had to create a traditional, more haunted Halloween display for the rest of the non-divas in the house. I was able to work with a couple of Dollar Store items, and the rest was already on hand--love it when that happens!
The ghost trio and tree are from Kirkland's, and Mr. Spider has been around forever. Now that he has a home, he has not been found in anyone's bed! The web and the ghostly picture are from the Dollar Store, and I used a stack of appropriately titled books to give one of the dancing ghosts more height.
I used a black cloth (more about that later) to cover the red cabinet. Are you ready for some close-ups?
I painted the white spider blue right after I completed the pink diva spider from the diva display. Gotta make the boys happy! I love the happy ghosts!
This is the other ghost by the ghostly figure in the frame. I was going to use a regular frame for this, but it fit perfectly in a small plate holder that I had on hand.
From this angle, you can see the regular face--not bad for a Dollar Store decoration! I also hung some ghostly glitter from the little tree and scattered extra glitter over the black cloth. Here is the entire cabinet.
I just added some more "creepy" books and items that I already had. Mr. Bones is standing guard to make sure the fur boys stay away. One of them was caught stealing a leaf from another display I have! Now, for a little confession: The black cloth is actually a cape from an old Darth Vader costume! It has a tear, and so far, my little Jedi hasn't noticed. Shhhh! Let's keep this a secret! Here are a couple of inside shots.
I couldn't resist giving this happy pumpkin a mustache!
One of the kids made this ghost in school. I've had the Georgie book since I was small, I think, and all of us love it. In fact, it has been "rescued" from the cabinet so the kids and I can keep reading it. It's totally falling apart, but that's a sign of a well-loved book! Here is one last view of the top.
Isn't it bootiful? I love frugal decorating, and I think these happy ghosts do too! Thanks so much for visiting me today!
I like to party with these fantastic folks:
