Halloween Home Decor

The challenge at the Cricut Circle blog this month is Halloween Home Decor.  I have entered a few projects and this is another one.  I cut out some bats using my Happy Hauntings and Chic & Scary cartridges out of plain cardstock.  To adhere them to my fireplace I have used the Removable Glue Dots!  There are so many uses for these dots, especially around the holidays!  I love them!



Just a close up of some of the decorations I have made.  All of the candle sticks (including the tall one in the photo below) were purchased at garage sales.  They were either white ceramic or 'gold/brass' colored.  I spray painted them black.  How easy is that.

Another view of the tall candlestick.  The boot is another thrift store find... still searching for the 'perfect boot'.

I used the negative pieces of cardstock from the bats as a stencil and created this quick and easy table runner out of a scrap piece of burlap.  Yes I do need more table decor (LOL). I did it for the Scrapbooker's Paradise Ponderings challenge:


It is also another entry into the Cricut Circle Monthly challenge - home decor.

Love your Halloween decor, Laurel! The bats look great on your fireplace and runner. I keep hearing about spray painting one's thrifty finds but have never done it. I should, looks great! All your pieces work wonderfully well together!

PS meant to add, I think using the removable glue dots is a fantastic idea and one I probably wouldn't have thought of. Thanks for the tip!
