Halloween Decorations :: Cameo Pumpkins

These cameo pumpkins are an easy and elegant way to decorate your home for Halloween. They take minutes to put together but will give your home a sophisticated spooky look that will last throughout the season.

Decorate your Halloween Pumpkins with Cameos

 

I have adored and collected cameo jewelry whilst antiquing for years now. I am so drawn to the creamy white silhouettes framed in smooth black backgrounds. Each cameo seems to have its very own story and I just can’t help myself when I come across one that speaks to me. My husband always smiles and laughs and asks me what I’ll do with yet another cameo and now I have an answer! I’ll make cameo pumpkins with them!

I used white pumpkins so that the cameos would stand out but you easily paint orange pumpkins white.

I hung my pendant cameos with a straight pin and the brooches and earrings just pushed right in on their own.

If you don’t happen to have a cameo collection then you need to get started! Just kidding.

No, seriously, if you don’t have any cameos you can actually find some in craft stores that are inexpensive and easy to get! I actually found this one below at Hobby Lobby!

Halloween Decorations :: The Foyer

Greet all of you Autumn guests with some festive Halloween decorations in your foyer. Nothing sets the tone of your home like that first warm inviting step.

Halloween DecorationsThe Foyer

Halloween decorations have always been a favorite of mine ever since I was a little girl. I can still vividly remember those first crisp autumn days when my mom would pull out all of the folding paper pumpkins (the kind that opened up into a little orb of tissue honeycomb), do you remember those? I would help her fan them open and tuck back the little silver clip that held the pumpkin shape in place. Oh how I loved traipsing around behind her as she placed them about the house. My love of decorating with pumpkins must have started there, with those sweet little folding tissue pumpkins. But as the years have passed, I have traded my paper pumpkins in for real ones and I always smile and think of my mom as I place them about my house.

This year as I placed my  beloved cinderella pumpkin in my foyer I decided to add a few other embellishments to make my Halloween scene complete.

I just leaned a simple tree branch (that I found in my yard) against the wall and wove some store bought spider webbing through the branches.

Tucked in a few plastic spiders and hung up a couple of black ribbon bats.

The black ribbon bats are cinch to make! Just cut a piece of ribbon, tie a clear piece of craft string tightly around the center into a knot. Fold the ribbon in half and cut a few notches along the bottom edge of the ribbon to shape the wings.
