Halloween Home Decor from Thrift Store and Garage Sale finds

I love going to thrift shops and garage sales.  One of the reasons is because a few years ago I started creating some home décor from these finds - a bit of spray paint and scrapbooking items and some easy and inexpensive unique home décor.  I like slowly building my collection bit by bit, that is part of the fun.  

A couple of wooden trinket boxes that I up cycled with some Echo Park paper.

My Mantle:  Some  old glass jars and tin spray painted then some labels from My Mind's Eye.  The oval frame was a cheap plastic find and I just added some Echo Park products.  I also love the vintage canning jar filled with $ store bones.

an upcycled wooden chest and notice the bone - a real whale bone.

my favorite find this year - this pitcher -which I like better black

then filled with these dried roses I have had hanging since summer.

some mismatched candle holders all painted black on top of a burlap runner I made and stencilled with some bats.

Still on the lookout for the perfect 'witch boot' but for now this one works.  I also spray painted the tall candlestick - it used to be an ugly bronze.

I have moved into my dining room now as today I spray painted this candelabra.  Can't wait to build up my dining room décor.
