DIY Halloween Decorations

It’s that time of the month again for the DIY Project Challenge, so why not DIY Halloween Decorations?  I was in Goodwill purchasing some flannel shirts for fabric pumpkins when I saw two lanterns and I immediately thought I would grab them for my challenge project. The best part of the challenge is all the inspiration from all the talented bloggers in the challenge. Their amazing projects are featured at the end of my post.

After grabbing those two lanterns I decided to paint them and add bows. I wanted to use spray paint since it would be the easiest way to get the best coverage.

The tall lantern was not tall enough so I placed one of my DIY wood display risers under it to give the height it needed to look balanced.

Decorating Halloween Hutch

This year my plan for decorating this Halloween is going to be a little different than I usual. I decided to included orange this year to my usual black and white decor. The stool I painted I placed on the floor and place a pumpkin on top which helps to draw the eye from the top to bottom of the China hutch.
