My Halloween Curio/Display

A while back William’s mom gave me this really fabulous shelf/curio. It was really dirty and a dirty brown. I spiffed it up with some black paint and decided to display some of my cute Halloween accents in it! I really love the way it looks and I think it will be fun to decorate with other non-seasonal accents.

Here’s a few detail photos of my seasonal décor and pumpkins!

This is a fun accent I won from a contest on Amy Locurto’s site a few years ago. It was supposed to plug into a USB port, but it didn’t work. It makes a super cute decoration even though it doesn’t light up.

I bought these frames for a $1 last year at Michaels. I put in some spooky illustrations by Andrew of Ogner Stump. I think they are pretty darn fantastic.

You may remember this pumpkin from my colorful pumpkin blog post a few days ago. I accented it with some plastic spider rings.

Here’s another detail. I used Collage Pauge on that pumpkin with candy corn tissue paper by Hallmark. I also accented with tiny mirror balls – I love them!

My friend Diane got me this cute cat figurine a few years back. He’s so goofy.

This was a thrift store find from a few weeks ago. It was only a $1. I love thrift store scores!

Everything is better with eyeballs, don’t you think?

Next year, I’m going to have to get my display up sooner, so I can enjoy it longer! I get so busy with my Halloween projects, that I never have time to put up all my décor. Hopefully next year, I’ll have a house and can have a party!

Until next time Swellions!

My Halloween UFO sighting

I was painting a little project tonight and poured some of my paint out. When I looked down, I saw this crazy UFO formation in the paint! Isn’t it sooo weird? I thought it was actually appropriate for my project…a Halloween curio! Here’s my painting in progress.

I can’t wait till it is finished. I’m not a big fan of painting. Spray painting is pretty much out of the question, cause my space is WAY to small to do big projects in. When it’s done, I’m pretty sure it will look pretty swell!

Until next time Swellions!
