Repurposed Tricks & Treats – Halloween Decor Ideas
For the next week, I am excited to share with you different ideas I styled to make your home spooktacular! This first installment was inspired by the literary elements in my home.
If you have a typewriter, use it as a way to hold up spooky signs (mine was created from a page out of an antique “psychosis diagnosis” book topped with cutout letters). With chalkboard paint, I gave a few old books a face lift — making them perfect for penning ghoulish messages. Then, I transformed a baroque gold planter with a coat of chalkboard paint, tracing its lines with chalk, to create a fresh look that can be used around the year.
Decorating around the holidays is a fun way to revitalize one’s home, but I rarely purchase seasonal decor items that will collect dust after the holiday. Instead, if you look around your home, there are so many items waiting to be used in a different, frightful light! Couple these with fresh flowers, plants, and of course, pumpkins, and you have repurposed tricks and treats!
