Homemade Halloween... A Simple How-to! :)

It is amazing what you can do with some dollar store finds and some black spray paint.
I found these candlesticks at the local 99cent store, and immediately bought them.
I loved the shape, but hated the color.

For Andrew's Halloween party that I am throwing next week, I wanted all of the decor to be black and glittery and magical. There was no room for tacky creamish-yellow skulls at all. :)

So, a can of glossy black spray paint became my new best friend!!

And voila!

Now, I seriously love these.
I can't get enough of them!

With a little vision and creativity, you can change the drabbest of decorations into something you love. Find funky pieces at a thrift store, a dollar store, or at a craft store like Michael's. Maybe it isn't perfect yet, but use your imagination and spray paint it one solid color. Simple, homemade makeover and so super easy! :)

I can't wait to use these candlesticks on the table for Andrew and his friends.
Little boys think skulls are fantastic. :)

Are you loving the Homemade Halloween week?
I know I am!
