Hard to believe October 1st is in one week, which means it’s almost time to bring out the Halloween decorations. Want to get into the spooky spirit without spending a fortune? Visit the Our Towns Habitat ReStore for everyday household items that can be easily transformed into seasonal décor.
Paint It Black
Painting almost anything black gives it a scary vibe. Look for
old Christmas villages, chandeliers and vases to transform with a coat of black
Make Signs from Repurposed Items
Make an ornate cemetery sign from an old headboard or use old cabinet doors to make Halloween signs. A piece of fencing can be painted and
propped up for that haunted house feeling.
Use Glassware for Spooky Displays
Look through the glassware aisle for apothecary jars, cake or cheese domes,
and goblets which can be turned into Halloween displays.
Books and Book Pages
The ReStore has tons of books that can be transformed into a book of spells
or potions. Use book pages to make vintage looking signs or pumpkins.
Repurpose old mirrors or picture frames with chalkboard paint or flying bats.
Scrape off part of the mirror backing and insert an old photo for a spooky looking frame.
