So Halloween is my favorite holiday, but I still can't justify spending more than $20 a year on decorations. Combine that with living in an apartment (no outdoors decorations! Nowhere to put pumpkins! No trick-or-treaters! All the walls are beige) and I had to get a little... desperately creative this year. These are by no means classy dinner party decorations, but they're cute in a campy sort of way.
Tissue ghosts are a favorite of mine. :3 Threaded onto invisible thread they make a cute decoration. I still haven't decided where to put them, though.
A collection of old bottles on a shelf; what I think of as my apothecary... sadly out of stock. If I can figure out how to seal them I might fill them with multicolored fluids, findings and "specimens".
crepe paper curtains for our kitchen window.
A bat mobile! Paper bat cutouts strung on invisible thread, hung from the ceiling. The air currents in the room keep them twirling and fluttering about all day - they're actually my favorite decoration this year.
And, something I'm unreasonably proud of:
A Halloween wreath!
This is the most ghetto decoration I made - I didn't have a wreath form so I used a belt. All I did was tie ribbons all around one half of the belt, and wrap a black feather boa (left over from my bat wings) around the other half. I knotted strips of orange fabric around the feathers, and finally hung a spider pendant in the center.
