"Creeper-izing" Chandeliers...

The Headlines:


Sometimes the coolest decor.

Is the most simple.


It's funny.  I can do the most simple thing in the world, decorating wise.  Yet it brings in so many compliments.  That always stumps me.  You know what I mean?  Spend tons of money on something and no one gives it a second glance.  But something that costs pennies - people die!  Such is the case here.  I'm only doing a blog post because people are loving it.  And it was easier than waking up in the morning.

This idea "came to me"… when I saw it in my friend's house.  She had some simple skeletons hanging from her chandelier in her kitchen and it almost looked as if they belonged there!  I loved it.  So I ran right out and decided to copy her.  Best form of flattery… remember!

Here's what I came up with:

Creep Chandelier 

This is my new chandelier which I had installed a few weeks ago… I LOVE it!  The chandelier and the "creeperizing" of it!  I really like how when you look at the room you don't see it immediately… until you do.  See?


Here it is up close.   They couldn't fit in more perfectly!  And all for like, maybe 50 cents, from Michael's!  But hurry, they're going fast!


Then, our next door neighbor gave my kids some more skeleton bodies and we hung them here…


If I had more… I would do more… but this will have to suffice because I'm over "hunting for Halloween" this year.  


I will say this:  I think they key here between this decor looking chic and cheap is color.  If the color kind of coordinates with the chandelier it works better.  It seems like it's supposed to be there.


Bottom line for my Halloween decorating = simple: something that actually sticks with my "defined style".  I won't do dancing pumpkins, or witches that mechanically pop out at you… but you can.  If it's parallel to your "defined style."  Not sure what that is?  Check out my older post here … it will explain and shed a whole new light on the way you decorate!  

Hopefully.
