Spooktacular Style: Tea Light Sculls and Spray Paint Decisions.

Whew. That is a long title.

Have Spooktacular Style this year with Black, White, and Silver Halloween Decor

I thought it would be fun to do a little series and share how I am going to decorate my home for Halloween this year. I do think I’m going to minimize my Halloween decorations a little bit and just add a few seasonal touches. I usually go all out, but I feel like I’m still getting settled in my new home and I don’t want to bite off more than I can chew. I shared in a previous post that I wanted to change up some of my go-to Halloween decor tricks and try a new seasonal color palette for my living room. I’m really loving the chic look and sharp contrast of black, white, and silver. I haven’t shared this before, but I plan on using a dusty lavender, blues, and grays in my formal living room year-round and I think this high contrast Halloween look will bring just the right touch of spooky fun to my bachelorette pad in coming years!

I still have a long way to go in furnishing Morning Joy and I’m still pining away for my dream mantle, but I thought it would be fun to make a little vignette on my blue entryway table. I already had a black spiderweb table runner that I scored on clearance at Target a few years back. I paired that with another Target find, my sweet little haunted house.  I always like adding a few pieces each year and I found these great sculls at Michaels for 60% off! Yup,  they were $4. They are so cool! The back pops off and you can add a tea light inside for an eerie glow. My table is still looking a bit bare, so I want to add in some more visual interest. I’m thinking maybe a fun candelabra to add a bit of height or some vintage books for texture.

I don’t have the funds to replace my entire holiday arsenal at once, so in an effort to change up my tried and true Halloween pieces I was thinking of giving new life via a few coats of spray paint. I have these really cool Jack-O-Lanterns that I picked up a few years ago from the grocery store.

Fun Jack-O-Lanterns. To paint or not to paint?

But I can’t decide what to do with them! I thought I would take a quick poll and see what you guys think. Should I leave them in their natural state? Or go with a glossy white, chic black, or a modern silver metal finish? Let me know below!

Use spray paint to give new life to old seasonal decor or new thrift store finds
