Fall Votives and Some Spooky Decor

This weekend in addition to getting the house and yard ready for winter, I was able to sneak in a little decorating time as well. I love fall but I also wanted to add some Halloween fun as well without going to overboard or looking hoaky. I hope you will agree that I accomplished that with my coffee table display.

First I took some cheap votives I had around the house and wrapped them with some leaves I had leftover from our wedding (7 years ago) and tied them with twine. It's that easy and I'll be able to use these all the way through Thanksgiving. Cost = $0 so you can't beat that!

Then I decided to add a bowl full of wine corks with a creepy spider and a bowl of bones for some fun. The only purchase here was the skeletal hands which I got at the Dollar Tree for $1 and I couldn't beat that either.

Now that I have the coffee table decorated, I need to finish up the rest of my displays and I'm eager to share those with you too. Have you created any spooky displays in your home? Please share.

P.S. Don't forget there is still time to enter my $20 Starbucks giveaway celebrating my 1st Blogiversary. The drawing will take place on Saturday.

I love the votives and there free even better. The boys and I did some decorating too. Our mantel has a fall touch for the first time ever.

You got some of that stuff at the Dollar Tree, I'll have to see what is left at our store. Cute spiders. Weren't you the one that was scared of real spiders?
