It's almost September, which means we are approaching Halloween season!!! Have you seen the latest Pottery Barn catalog? Starting on page 30 they showcase their Sleepy Hollow spread. Those DIY wheels just started turning in my brain.
Creepy chalkboard welcome message
Table runner with creepy tree motif. This would be a super easy DIY with some burlap & craft paint.
Create headless portraits from old photographs.
This could easily be done in Photoshop using the lasso & clone stamp tools.
Paper bag luminaries are simple to make and cheap! You can print vintage images directly on paper bags using your home printer. Illuminate with flameless candles or string lights.
Make creepy signs out of balsa wood.
You can distress them with paint or stain, then write a message using a paint pen.
Remember my bleeding script candles from last year? Create a similar effect using pillar candles instead. If you can find them, how cool would it be to use old crime headlines? Like Jack the Ripper Strikes Again! Or even pages from the Obituaries. Imagine the possibilities...
Silhouette chalkboards for the hors d'oeuvre table. Clipart & adhesive chalkboard paper should do the trick here.
