Halloween Curio Cabinet

Bottles of beads & sequins
This Halloween I have decided to go for a baroque-style theme of black, white, silver and hot pink. With lots of silvery skulls!

For inspiration, I started off by filling my Curio Cabinet with bottles of beads, sequins and trims in my colour theme. As time went on I continued to add elements of my Halloween theme like the small silver skull charms, candles and stamp.


Vintage poison stamp
I picked up the poison stamp at Portobello Market and the skull tealights at Poundland (such a bargain at 6 for £1). I was thinking of getting some ink pads in black, pink and silver so I can print the poison label onto candy bags and tags etc.

Have a sweet day!

  9. As I told you before, I'm completely captivated by this color combination. It works...and I really wouldn't have pictured it being this cool for Halloween. It makes all my things I can see surrounding me look very orange.

    I really like your Poison stamp. I've got a Hallowe'en stamp I use on little greaseproof paper bags which I use to pop sweets inside for our trick and treaters.
