A Little Hocus Pocus and A Witches Corner
Tuesday, October 20, 2020
Halloween has officially arrived over here!
As the nights get longer and cooler, one thing settles on my mind is – Halloween and Halloween decor. This time of year is lovely for the fall cornucopias, corn stalks, and other fall decor, but Halloween decorations bring out the spooky fun!
I had a good time mixing and mingling a few fall touches with some spooky Halloween. Yes, I’m young at heart and a Halloween enthusiast! So, I’m thrilled to share my Halloween look this year. I had way too much fun styling this little area & nook near the front foyer of my house. With not a lot of locations to style Halloween … I used a small table and an antique chair that I painted black and recovered in brown cowhide.
I started with some pumpkins, a candle stick, and a vase filled with some dried branches. I think that the pumpkins added a rich pop of color to the vignette.
Since I love the moody, dark, spooky Halloween vibes, I layered on the Halloween accents – The more the merrier when it came to the accent pieces (skulls, a bony hand, crows, and books for potions) and other fall decor including some twinkling lights. I loaded up my space with Halloween just to get those spooky Halloween vibes.
My final layer was adding in the candles, like a black candle with a drippy look. I used a single black candle in a empty wine bottle and several mercury votives for the spooky ambiance. I feel like the candles brought the whole look together and finished up my spooky Halloween.
Witches Corner – Come sit for a spell.
With a little extra time, my Halloween vignette has evolved with some extra inspiration from my witches feet.
For this witch’s corner I imagined what a witch might have in her front foyer. I felt this little area needed a bit more of a moody vibe so I added a large ornate, black framed mirror, a witches broom, and a witches hat. Like, this is where a witch might leave her outdoor riding gear.
I came up with a broom, books for spells, a chair in a nook, a blanket, pumpkins, a layering of skulls, candles, & of course her pointy shoes among her decor & things like we all love.
I would like to think that they key to having a great Halloween look is layering. The layering of different items and the glow from candles and twinkle lights adds to to the great spooky vibe.
This was so much fun for me to create and think outside of my normal comfort zone.
I loved dressing up my home with wicked, whimsical touches and spooky settings.
“When Black cats prowl and pumpkins gleam, may luck be yours on Halloween.”
