The foyer is all dressed up to greet our guests during this spooky season.
I did not decorate for halloween as much as I intended to but c’est la vie.

Skull vignette

It is partly do to the fact my kids are older and not as interested.
And partly do to the fact that I simply did not get to it.  I guess it was not my priority either.

Skull vignette1

 Regardless, I’m embracing the season with what we do have.
So to greet our guests {and make it appear like we got halloween going on around here} ; ) there’s a skull vignette in the front hall.

Skull vignette2

Some are new, some are old but in mass they will always make more of an impact.

Skull vignette3

Then you throw them under glass and you elevate the entire thing.
Add some spanish moss for texture and creepiness factor and I’m good to go

Skull vignette4

Fun, huh?

Skull vignette5

The newest one this year is this dollar tree plastic skull I decoupaged with book print and added black glitter eyes.

    Now that my kids are grown and gone, I tend to decorate only my front hall, also. But, yours is AWESOME! Little trick or treaters must be fascinated! I was! Bice job! Ny daughter loves H., and I made a bunch of potion/poison bottles for her as well as a BUNCH of little cloth pumpkins (a first for me).
