|The piano is all decked out with creepy cloth from the dollar store and my collection of "witchy" things!|
|Witch shoe, hat and old rusty spring with eyeball candy!|
|And her apothecary!!!|
|Creepy cloth from a dollar store with fake roaches entangled in it.|
HUGE IMPACT for A DOLLAR a piece!!! I have these hanging EVERYWHERE!
|Love my Matilda witch doll from Hallmark that I treated myself to many moons|
ago! I used to get incredible coupons to use during my birthday month and
bought her for a song!!! Notice the pet spider in her lap? A little detail that tells a story!
|All kinds of gross things to amuse the eye!|
|A close-up pic of the mossy rocks and more springs!|
|Notice the varying heights... and crooked candle!!! OOPS!|
|Maggots are placed in an old salt shaker. I found the cool old bottle for the|
earthworms at my local Goodwill. I shop for these type of finds ALL YEAR and
NEVER pass up something really unusual. Speaking from experience, it WILL NOT be
there if you change your mind and go back for it later. The worms are fishing lures.
They were quite expensive for my budget, but with all the money I saved on used items
and shopping at the Dollar Tree, I rationalized the purchase! LOL The label for the worms
came from the internet. You can find all kinds of free downloads if you look! Here are some
really neat labels!
|Notice the black mouse tail???|
|My poor Shrunken Man! LOL You can buy six of these little skeletons for a dollar|
at the Dollar Tree. I used a lighter to melt his joints so that I could bend him into a sitting
position. The top of the jar is a rusty old biscuit cutter.
|Notice I have the shrunken man propped up on a overturned silver bowl to give him the proper height.|
|For some humor I turned his gumball eye inward so he looks cross-eyed and silly.|
Notice his other eye appears to have fallen out and landed in the moss below?
Another little story being told.
|How can one girl have SO MUCH FUN at the dollar store!?!?!?!? LOL|
|I used an old wooden spool and round cooking racks to create varying heights.|
Because they are covered up in the creepy cloth, you don't even think to look at what
the objects are stacked on. I use the wooden spool often in my decorating.
|I hope you got a kick out of my super-cheap decorating ideas. For me, part of the|
challenge is being able to AFFORD it do it. What fun is it if you feel guilty about the
money spent for decorations that will only enjoy for a short time each year?
