Repurposed Items for a HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!

I made a few stops at our local Thirft Stores in the last couple months and found a few fun things! A couple old plates, a silver tray and a beat up candle holder
Old to New

Another old silver tray, a few plates, and a scratched up black cake pedestal like thing... {I think it originally had candles on it}
Old to New

One trip to Salvation Army, I found these awesome Candle Holders... But I didn't buy any of this stuff with the intentions of using it as is. Nope. I took a little spray primer, a little black spray paint and a bit of Gorilla Glue...And made some spiffy new decorations for Halloween!

Here's the Cake Pedestal like thingy with a fresh coat of paint...

And just for fun, here's a few corners of our home all decked out for the spooky Holiday.

Here are my Owl bookends that I still LOVE. I found them at a Goodwill a couple years ago. They were ugly and silver. A bit of paint and they are perfect for Halloween!

Here's a corner in my Dining Room. The sign came from the Dollar Store a couple years ago. For 1 buck, I think it's pretty dang cute.

And my BOO collection. Not sure how it came to be, but a few years ago, I noticed I had a lot of little ghosties in my Halloween decor, so I started grouping them all together on top of the Piano. I love cute little Ghosties. I think I need to find a Casper to go in my collection. Don't you?

Those made adorable pedestals Jodi and all in my price range I'm sure! I need to start looking at some of the housewares at Salvation Army and imagining them with a good coat of spray paint:>)

Angi said...

How creative. Im going to keep an eye out at the local thrift stores for items to make there.

That plate on the first picture (white with blue flowers) is the same pattern of my grandmother's china that I bought at her auction after she passed. You have some very creative ideas.

beth said...

Hi Jodi:
I think you did some serious magic on all those Goodwill finds! You really put a Halloween spell on them. Your holiday decor is perfect! Hope you enjoy a perfect fall weekend.

Love it all. My grand daughter was born on Halloween, so that is where we go for a party. I do not really decorate for Halloween anymore because we have moved to the country back a long lane between the woods and we do not get trick or treaters anymore. If I did I would certainly steal your wonderful ideas!

Carrie said...

Jodi! That small plate with the green around the edge!!! THOSE ARE MY PLATES I HAVE RIGHT NOW!!! We only have one small plate left and most of the bowls are gone too. LOL!

Allie said...

I love your re-purposed decorations! Your house looks so festive!

Miss White Wall said...

You are so creative, I really love all the decorations!

AnnieO said...

Fantastic repurposing! I am loving the black spray paint magic. You are a real witch with the transfigurations you make, LOL!

Kim said...

I like all of your repurposing. It looks very classic in black. I forget about making stands with plates...

Lillian said...

Great ways of re-purposing items. Thanks for sharing. I love all the cute halloween ceramics. I bet you've been collecting these throughout the years.

Carol said...

Fabulous. Some halloween decor that looks elegant and like-able.

Sonja said...

I was a avid follower of your Sew Picture Perfect. I'm so glad you switched, I love Pleasant Home! I would have never found it if you didn't combine the two.
Love your work
