Skull Vase Filler Pottery Barn Style

This idea is almost to easy to share with you, but I must.  If you follow me, you know how much I lovvvvvvvvve Pottery Barn.  I devour their catalogs on a regular basis.  With Halloween coming up I’ve been looking for inspiration.  I need some inexpensive décor to freshen up my existing Halloween decorations.

PB Skull Vase Filler

Pottery Barn

When I saw the skull vase filler in the catalogue I knew that it would be a hit with my grandson.

Skulls in bag

I remembered seeing these bags of skulls at Walmart.

Aren’t these adorable?   Oops, I meant to say S C A R Y!

Skulls under glass 2

 This was a five-minute project at most and inexpensive.  My only cost was the bag of skulls.  I already had the glass container and moss.  You could use a mason jar for a more rustic look.

Skulls on the mantel

It’s the first Halloween decoration on the mantel.  We are going to decorate my Halloween Mantel in the upcoming days.

Please be sure to come back tomorrow when I will have more Quick and Easy Holiday Décor and More.  If you don’t already subscribe to my blog be sure to sign up by e-mail on the right, so you will never miss a post.  Thank you for visiting.



PS  I promise it won’t all be PB inspired.

Thursday Thrifty Treasure Week 8

Bottles and Alum Trays

This week I am featuring some of my vintage bottles on Thursday Thrifty Treasure.  I loved vintage bottles before they became so collectible.  As I mentioned before my late husband always brought me stuff that others might consider unusual gifts.  Anytime he ran across old bottles while out land surveying he brought them home to me knowing […]

Autumn Thermos Vignette in the Kitchen

Autumn Gourds

The autumn spirit has not hit me yet but I finally got around to making a vignette in the kitchen this past weekend.   Just doing that little bit did inspire me to do a little more.  I’ve started working on my autumn mantel.  This is usually a three-day process.  I’m very methodical or maybe I’m just slow.  Any […]
