Decor Ideas

October 17, 2011

I’ve seen a few cute ideas for more subtle Halloween decorating ideas around lately, primarily through Pinterest, and thought I’d give them a try this year. I like the look of them so I thought I’d share.

I used hurricane jars for these, but any suitably large glass vase will do, and you can find a large selection of them in pretty much any thrift store.

The first is simply filling a jar up a little ways with Halloween candy – I used candy corn, obviously; I think the seasonal candies like this or mallowcreme pumpkins look good – and popping some candles into the candy. I think it looks a little better if the candles stand at varying heights, but you can do anything you like with it. You can use pillars, votives, anything really.

The other idea is to collect some twigs and sticks and pop them into a vase with some miniature pumpkins. I have a horror of bugs, so I rinsed the twigs first, but I might be a little OCD.

These are something a little different from my usual decorations, and a change is nice once in a while.

    Love these! I would totally do the candy idea if I could trust an open jar of candy with a 2 year old. šŸ˜‰

      Thanks! Yeah, maybe the candy where she can reach it might be bad. šŸ™‚
