Creepy Centerpieces

So....a little more creepy....for Creepy Crafts Month....this focuses on centerpiece ideas. I've discovered over the years that all the random stuff here and there doesn't really decorate as well as a few carefully chosen pieces. Each year I select a few to use and it makes decorating and de-decorating so much easier...SIMPLIFY and enjoy....


Black and green....isn't it cute. It's made with a cheapy pipecleaner tree and decorated with some random "spooky" stuff. Check out the details over at: Celebrations.com

Or how about a spooky collection of jars full of gross stuff. Picture from: Mixmingleglow.
You know how I LOVE repurposing items ....brings less clutter into the house....well use a simple white (or another color) urn, vase, or pitcher...grab some limbs from nature, a little moss, and black cuts outs of ravens....for a simple yet spooky centerpiece. Idea from: Freshfurniture.

That's it for today....I hope you are collecting some creepy ideas!!

It's Creepy Crafts Month!

Pinned Image

February is Creepy Crafts Month here at Haunted Happenings. Throughout the month I'll be sharing some creepy craft ideas....to get you inspired and to give you plenty of time to get them ready for Halloween fun!! 

For several years now I have organized my Rudolph Day stuff around a monthly theme so I thought "why not try the same thing for Great Pumpkin Day." Hence...I am declaring February Creepy Craft Month. I hope you will join me in celebrating eerie and creepy crafts all month long.

Halloween House


Check out this little Halloween House over at The Silly BooDilly. There are step by step directions how to create it. I love little houses....like those vintage Christmas ones and have been looking to pick some little ones up somewhere to decorate and make both a Halloween Village and a Christmas Village.

I have both Halloween and Christmas Villages in ceramics but I just would like a whimsy artsy set to make and use. Maybe rotating them from year to year so both get used! Do you love villages? What kind do you have?
