Get Your Spook On By Decorating With Upcycled Halloween Decor

Upcycled Halloween Decor That Will Give Your Home A Spooky Look and Feel

Hello Blogland Friends,

Woohoo! Autumn has arrived!!! Have you started on your Halloween Decorating yet? Blogland is flooded with creative Halloween decorating ideas right now and all you have to do to become inspired is to turn on your computer!

I am running late decorating this year, again, so today I thought it would be fun to share with you a couple of Spooky vignettes I created with some upcycled Halloween decor I just finished for my shop.

The focal point for this first Halloween Vignette is a Spooky Candelabra I crafted from a thrift store candle holder.

The candelabra was already black but I gave it a new coat of paint to freshen it up. I glued a vintage style skeleton key to the front for added interest.

 To give it a spooky look, perfect for a “Haunted House” I placed three candles that I partially melted into the candelabra. How cool is that?

Melted Halloween Candle

I love working with old books and when I think of a Haunted House I think of a big old mansion with a library. I picked up a few vintage books at a thrift shop.

I ripped the cover off one of the books placed it on top of another book. I tied the book bundle with some old lace, added a black silk rose and dripped it with “blood”. Spooky! This upcycled Halloween Book Bundle is perfect for a Haunted Library look.

I tucked in a dollar store pumpkin I painted white a few years back, some old upcycled Halloween bottles and some branches to complete this vignette. What do you think?

I found this dated, gaudy candelabra at a thrift shop and instantly envisioned it’s makeover. I loved the lines and details of it.

I took it apart, painted the metal sections a glossy black and put it back together. I added a ton of hanging crystals to it.

I love the details on the base! Each corner has a little cherub face!

Wow what a difference! This once dated, ugly candelabra is now elegant and classy.

Although it can be displayed year round, with some bright lime green candles, this Gothic Style Elegant Candelabra looks great in this next Halloween vignette.

I created another Upcycled Halloween Book Bundle embellished with a vintage skull image, an old skeleton key and black ribbon. This book bundle is my favorite of the two.

I added the word Spooky to this vintage style, aged Halloween mirror with a waterslide decal. I love aged look of the mirror and the ornate frame is great!

Before and After: A Pair Of Thrift Store Canisters Get A Makeover

Before and After: A Couple Of Thrifty Finds Get A New Look

Hi All,

Who doesn’t love a good before and after story? Today I would like to share one with you. It’s no secret that I love hunting through thrift shops, looking for tired, dated items that can be brought back to life. I found this pair of vintage wooden kitchen canisters at one of my favorite haunts a few months back. They were out dated and had no personality but I knew with a little creativity they could be “kitchen ready” in no time.

Vintage Thrift Store Canisters

The first canister got a couple of coats of aqua blue paint and some distressing. I added some pink gingham paper and a vintage inspired rose seed packet image to the front, really giving it a Shabby Chic inspired look.

The nice part about these canisters are the fact that they feature a pull out plastic insert for freshness. You can put cookies, sugar packets, tea bags or even Fido’s treats in them. I am really happy with how this Shabby to Chic Rose Inspired Kitchen Canister turned out and can see it sitting in a pretty, cottage style kitchen. So sweet!

I wanted to do something a little different with the other canister so I decided to give it a French Country look. I painted it Antique White and distressed it (of course). I added a French inspired label to the front and Voila! This upcycled French Country Canister is worthy of any Frenchy kitchen.

Before and After:

I think these old, worn out canisters turned out pretty snazzy. They may have ended up hidden away in a back corner of a cabinet in their “before” state but now they can be proudly displayed right out on the counter of any vintage, shabby chic style kitchen. Don’t you think?

Before and After Thrift Store Canister Makeover

Thrift stores, yard sales and flea markets are chock full of forgotten pieces that are just waiting for someone to pick up, take home and breath new life into. It’s amazing what a little paint and creativity can do. Happy treasure hunting!
