Around here, every day is Halloween. But it might surprise you to know that the girl who blogs about Halloween all year long doesn’t keep Halloween decor out all year long.
Have I shocked you? 🎃
Sure, I have a few pieces of Halloween decor I repurpose for year-round use (see how I do it!), but I don’t keep decor that’s blatantly for Halloween out after the holiday passes.
That changed in my bedroom this spring.
I was tired of the black and white prints of a band I had everywhere. The solution? I took it all down and replaced it with black and white prints of Halloweeny photos I’ve taken over the years.
Here’s my Halloween bedroom:
Yes, it’s subtle Halloween from this view, and I still have a few pops of Miranda-friendly colors in there. I love teal and hot pink these days, which pair perfectly with my blanket at the foot of my bed.
I didn’t realize it at the time I bought it, but the colors are the same as Sally’s dress in “The Nightmare Before Christmas”. I think of her every time I look at it!
Also, I love sleeping under that giant pumpkin every night! No better place for a Halloween blogger to dream all her Halloween blogger dreams, right?
Have I mentioned I’m obsessed with apothecary jars?
Here’s how I’m using my spooky succulents I made earlier this spring! (See how you can make them too.)
Here’s the Halloween REAL gem, though – my new gallery wall!
I love the mix of these – a little spooky, a little Halloweeny…but not an explosion of black and orange.
A couple details for you – here’s my other spooky succulent with my fave photo of my musical girl gang. All of us being in black was a total accident, but it makes me feel like we’re more of a coven than a girl gang.
I also love that this photo was taken in the gardens at The Philbrook in Tulsa, a spot where a crucial scene takes place in the early books of the House of Night books. (Fun witchy YA series to check out if you dig that kind of thing.)
My arm chair is the real reason I finally went full-on Halloween. After October 2015, I never put away my candy corn blanket. Then last summer I added the skull throw pillow to it and, well, here we are.
Isn’t it fun? Don’t you wish your bedroom looked like this? Well…
SURPRISE! Your bedroom can look like mine too!
How you ask? Because I’m putting these photos of mine on sale! That’s right – I’ve opened my own little Society6 shop with a collection of 13 spooky Halloween prints.
I’ve posted a collection of 13 black and white Halloween photos on Society6. In addition to art prints of all the photos, I’m also offering goodies like iPhone cases, beach towels, stationery cards, throw pillows and more.
I hope you’ll take a little time to check it out:
And just in case you’re brand new to Society6, you can use my referral link to get $10 off anything in my shop when you spend $40 or more! Personally, I’m a Society6 shopper because I love the chance to support artists and photographers while scoring original items none of my friends have. (I kind of feel like Society6 is one of the Internet’s best-kept secrets.)
In the interest of full disclosure, please rest assured that any earnings from this little collection will be coming right back to Spooky Little Halloween. That means more cool DIY projects, more fun recipes and cocktails…and more giveaways!
Which item can’t you live without?
I’d love to hear your feedback – on my bedroom AND on the Society6 collection!
