We interrupt this blog for a special announcement: I friggin' made the banner! By myself. With Photoshop (Elements). The "Spooky" is a PNG I got from Rhonna, but the rest is my design. No, really it is….. back to your regularly scheduled blogging…
Today we tour the Den-ish space:
You might recognize the orange branches from my little tutorial/hint. I love the entire little display. I really love the orange branches in the black vase. It doesn't show up on camera but the branches are very sparkly. The Faux Mercury Glass Pumpkin is one I made last year. I promise to teach you how to do it once the weather improves and I can go outside. In the mean time you can play a little game of "where's Waldo" by trying to find all the Faux Mercury Glass Pumpkins in my house. All the faux white and black pumpkins I used had their stems glittered black before anything else was done to them. The large white pumpkin in this space was further decorated with sheer ribbon and orange berries. Although it is hard to see, there is a tiny chalkboard I made from a small artist canvas and Krylon Chalkboard spray. The tiny orange pumpkins were glittered with Martha Stewart Glitter and glue.
The other items on the armoire include a PB Mercury Glass vase, a Faux Mercury Glass Pumpkin, and a silver crazed gazing ball that I adore. I added one of my Paper Dolls that I have for sale on Etsy and for fun I added some Witch shoes I've worn with my witchy costumes. I am contemplating whether to glitter them….. what do you think? Too much? Just right?

black one all blinged out.
There is a small table and light below the framed piece. I just added a cool web ribbon to the lampshade simply by wrapping it a few times around the shade and then tying a simple bow. Very easy. Below that I used a spider mask from a few years ago and a scary spider candle. Everything in this display was from my stash; I simply changed up how I used the items to keep it fresh.
That completes the tour of the fake den or den-ish area. On to the living room...
The Living Room part 1:
|This Year….I had lights but half the string died….A.N.N.O.Y.I.N.G.|
|Last Year…..Kinda BORING!|

|I glittered and altered the skull and vampire tags and stuck them up in a vintage flower frog.|
|I love the black and silver candles- I bought them this way.|
The pumpkin is a faux mercury glass.
