Halloween Vignette
Today I want to share with you a simple Halloween Vignette of items I already had in my stash of Halloween decorations. I never really understood how to decorate with holiday decor. I always just put it in a spot that looked alright. It just filled a space.
Since I began blogging in June of 2010, I've learned a ton about how to put together a vignette or rather, how to stage your decor around certain focal areas in your home. For example, I have the Martha Stewart-like Glitter Skulls that I made last year.
Instead of just placing them in a hurricane one on top of the other, this year I added the mini skulls with one and placed the other skull on the outside of the hurricane and proped it up on some vintage books. I also placed a famous Dollar Store crow to the top of the books. He looks like he's keeping watch over the room! Creepy and very appropriate for Halloween.
I decided to add a haunted house to the mix as well. It just fit in with all the black and darkness in this one spot. Isn't it kind of cute?! You never know what you'll find at your local Safeway.
To keep a bit of lightness to it, all of it sits infront of a mirror. I love how it's all staggered to keep your eyes moving. Halloween Vignettes like this one, adds interest and character to parts of your home. I love when a guest comes over and they stop and take a long peek at what's happening throughout your house. Better yet, your decorations don't look all cluttered and just thrown onto every surface.
If there is one good tip I could give you about decorating for a season, it would be to put away everyday stuff like pictures, vases, books, etc. to make room for seasonal items. It keeps the clutter down, and gives you something new to look at for a month or two.
