Yeah, so I went all in on the owls this year. If you have read my blog regularly, you know I tend to get stuck in a theme. Apparently the current theme is owls!
Anyway – The purple powder with its newly painted trees (see post here) ended up being the perfect place to add a little cheap Halloween update this year. I never would think to decorate my bathroom for Halloween usually. But I do tend to have folks over for trick or treat – etc. And with the colors and those trees – I just couldn’t miss out.
The whole thing only cost me $10 anyway. Here’s what I did:
Wrapped some books in paper and decorated them. We all remember how to put book covers on from our high school years right? Painting books, decorating books – it’s all over Pinterest. My suggestion? Just grab some scrapbook paper and wrap it up. Maybe use a Sharpie or some stickers to decorate the cover. Takes no time, barely any money and you can take it off after the holiday is over.
Bought a fuzzy owl and shopped my house for a candleholder. Oh and picked up the “creepy material” for a buck from the dollar store too. Not bad for a “back of the toilet Halloween vignette” huh? (Never thought I’d use all THOSE words in a phrase together!)
Let’s be honest – this post isn’t going to win me any decorating or DIY awards. But, when the Littlest One walked in there for the first time – she jumped back and shrieked a little. I guess that’s worth something huh?!
