Shabbylicious Halloween

Welcome to my Shabbylicious Halloween Home

I don't like scary Halloween decor......and neither does my little granddaughter that stays with us several days a week.    So,  I am decorating this year with what I call the "softer side"  of Halloween.
I made some pumpkins from a soft white fabric with a rose print on it.....
I decided to put my pumpkins in the lit cabinet at the end of the hallway.     This cabinet holds my milk glass collection year round....I just decorate around the milk glass for each holiday.
I made some of the pumpkins with a ruffle around the top...
I added a lace bow to some of them....
Isn't this shabby witch her!    Look to her right and you will see my attempt at painting a sunflower seed head white.....I kind of like it.,         
I used some of the milk glass pieces to hold the smaller pumpkins.
There has to be one baby boo in the bunch....
Can you spot my shabby witch's white owl.....
I dry brushed some white paint on the dried stems that I used on my pumpkins....
All of the pumpkins were made from a 22" circle.      They are all different sizes depending on how far down the circle I ran the gathering stitch.      I put in a cup of rice for weight,   filled them up with polyfill..  closed the gathering stitch ,  and hot glued the pumpkin stem on.   Easy peasey....
I moved my witch and owl around the hallway area to get some different shots.   This time the owl is in a large bowl with a feather wreath for a nest.
I have a small trifold  mirror and display cabinet that sets to the other side of the lit cabinet and door to the "powder room".   The mirror used to be dark wood,  but H  gave it a coat of white paint...sorry,  I couldn't find the before photo that I took.

Thank you so much for stopping by....come back soon!

    LOVE those pumpkins!! I thought I would have time to try my hand at some of those this year but once time!! I am going to be doing the Harvest Tea on Wed. so I have White and Gold Christmas things in the middle of my Halloween decorated Dining Room!!!! LOL!!


  11. I am now in a quandary over which of your pumpkins I adore the most. Faux fur? Or ruffled rose print? While I am trying to decide I will just say I love the white seed head. Thank you for sharing the softer side of Halloween at Make It Monday.
