Last week we pulled out the Halloween decorations and started decorating the piano top. (Providing a nice display surface for decorations is the best part of having a piano!)
But I felt like my decorations were a bit sparse, so I began searching the internet for some cute (and cheap) ideas. Here's what I've been having fun working on.
Silhouettes--you know they are big right now. I thought they'd be perfect for a Halloween version of family pictures.
I did individual silhouettes for both boys as well. This ghost is one I made last year (I'll post a tutorial later.) Then I went outside and collected some spooky crooked branches to put in my bud vase.
I had these little frames too, so I did some spooky mice silhouettes as well. (The black silhouette frames were all together in a set with a few more for only $9.99.)
Then I made some spooky "bleeding" candles by dripping red candle wax down some "bone colored" candles I had.
I assembled the whole collection with draping cheesecloth to achieve the final results:
I'm pleased with the spooky look, and may still end up adding more. Once I do some more holiday internet surfing!
