Halloween Decor and Crafts

The above pictured poison labels come courtesy of Country Living Magazine.  They have to be one of the coolest Halloween decorations ever, and you can make your own right off the website.  The above pictured scary apocathary only cost me the price of the ink and the stickers.  I had the jars and bottles around the house.   It was a wonderful excuse to purchase some yummy Halloween candy as well, atlthough as you can see by the Strychnine jar, my family has almost already devoured all the "poison".   The website also had the cutest craft for lace candles.  Mine didn’t turn out as well as the ones at, but if you want the directions on making them, go to  This is seriously one of my favorite Halloween issues of the magazine ever.  I love the Arsenic and Old Lace theme.  Check it out, and if you have any cool Halloween decor ideas or cool traditions, please comment below.

My haunted piano.  The vase is filled with dead rose stems.  Notice the macabre picture on the piano.  It can be printed out from Good Housekeeping Magazine online.

Some more haunted decor...

This cute little vintage ghost belonged to my beloved late grandmother...

Some evil pets I rounded up at the dollar store.


  1. That vintage ghostie figure is so darling! Love his puffed out cheeks and squinted eyes - I think if I saw him floating towards me, I'd be hard pressed not to smile :)

    Now that Canadian Thanksgiving is behind us, it's high time I bust out our decorations, too!

    Thank you very much for entering my Corset Story giveaway and for your lovely Thanksgiving Day wishes. Our feast if pretty much akin to that of our neighbours to the south, and includes all the beloved classics like roast turkey and gravy, mashed potatoes, stuffing, sweet potatoes, and pumpkin pie (yum!).

    Thanks again & happy countdown to Halloween!
