Cheap & Creepy Decor pt.3

I've finally gotten around to posting about the rest of my halloween decor! Here is a pumpkin that my mom bought on clearance last year after halloween. It was a sad and boring orange. Until I painted it a base coat of hunter green and then went over it with some green Extreme Glitter Paint from Michaels. I love that stuff! It is so pretty!! This picture really doesn't do it justice.

And now for my pride and joy...
I bought this lovely shelf at HL half off! I got it for $20. I was dying to have some sort of space in my house that acted as a mantle of sorts. I needed place to decorate in other words.
I purchased the "creepy fabric" at walmart for about $4 or so. Yes that is really the name of it. "Creepy Fabric". LOL.
I got the grey skull at our local thrift store for a buck and the pumpkins on the left are fake from the Dollar Tree. The bumpy squash is real. It is from a local farmer down the road.

The gruesome potion bottles are all made by me. So easy! The tall one is an old bottle of soap that I poured water, red food coloring and a little bit of coffee in. Why the coffee? It darkens it up to look more like blood.
The smaller bottles are tiny liquor bottles. I don't drink, but I found these at a wedding we went to recently. Another guest left them on the table after they were empty, so I snatched them up!

The label for the vampire blood can be found here. The Ogre snot is here and the Skele-grow is a label made by my friend Lindsay the Frugal Crafter. See the picture below for a better look at her labels!


  1. WOW! These are great projects! Truly LOVE them!
