Halloween Decor


Halloween Decor 2012

at  Alderberry Hill


This year I have added turquoise to my Halloween decor, just a touch of the famous blue goes a long way. And it mixes so well with orange but I thought I’d use red in this display along with silver for a modern Halloween feel!

I picked up the Halloween Tree at Michaels and decided on simple bats cut with my Silhouette Machine as decoration for the tree.

I coated them with Mod Podge and sprinkled red, silver & turquoise glitter on them and adhered them to the tree with double sided tape.

I didn’t have any real old fashioned keys so I made a set!

I cut them out with my Silhouette and covered them in glitter too!

Remember the Halloween Glass Blocks I made a couple of weeks back? Well, I was left with a stencil that I used to create this wooden sign. I cut a piece of pine down to size and sanded the edges.


1. Paint white/cream and let dry

2. Adhere your stencil to the wood (my vinyl was adhesive so I stuck right on, but you can use spray adhesive on your stencil too)

3. Paint your letters black

4. Distress with a little black paint

I am in love, it turned out so good!

I picked up this cute frame from Goodwill, it wasn’t always turquoise & there was a terrible canvas print in the frame with no glass. So I spray painted the entire thing, canvas and all and added the sweet “Happy Halloween” which I cut with my Silhouette Machine.

I made the Halloween wreath using cupcake liners last year. You can view the tutorial here.

I added in my Glitzy Halloween Coffin, tutorial here.

And a Halloween Printable, found here.

This little bird house was hanging out in storage so I spooked it up with a little turquoise, silver & black paint and gave it some height by placing it on a candle stick holder.

And the look is complete!

When witches go riding,

and black cats are seen,

the moon laughs and whispers,

‘tis near Halloween.

  23. That’s it, I really need to get on with Halloween decorating! I love that you used glittered paper shapes – I don’t have a Silhouette, but I do have a few Halloween paper punches, so I think I’ll try something similar.
