This year has been a hard one: personal changes, stress at work, hurricanes in my city– that I am so ready to leave it all behind and get on with the holiday spirit to enjoy it all! This is the reason I have decided to go all out on my home decorations this year and this month, I am starting with Halloween. This got me thinking: where do I start? What is the place that makes me happy all the time? That was a no brainer of course, my craft room/office/womancave, the space where I love to spend all my free time. To achieve this I did a little spooky makeover that wanted to share with you all, hoping that it will bring you inspiration to decorate any area you would like to.
One of the reasons I decided to decorate my craft room this year is because I have so many holiday crafts supplies. Yes, the ones that I have been hoarding and not using (gasp!) and that I finally decided to use and say: “No more! Let’s put them to good use!” The first thing I did was change all the images from my display wall just using papers from my stash.
My inspiration started with this Heidi Swapp Pumpkin Marquee kit that I got on clearance last year after the holidays. I always knew that I wanted to use it in my craft room.
I also used inexpensive pieces from The Dollar Tree store that matched my theme.
I have in my display wall frames that I have gotten on clearance, some of them without the mirror insert. That makes it easier to add dimensional pieces like wood veneers on top.
For my Ikea storage I wanted to add some pieces to jazz it up. First I changed the background of my Heidi Swapp Lightbox (most versatile piece ever!) and added some other DIY pieces.
I even added a fun Halloween mini tree that I made with some leftover pieces from the wreath on my front door. You can also see a sneak peek of my Halloween album for this year.
I wanted the album for this year to be more of a decorational piece, and I love the way it looks. I will be making a separate blog post post later to show you the inside of it.
I also created two additional pieces using cardstock and some of the new Halloween items from the Tim Holtz line.
I will do a separate blog post for those DIY projects to show you how inexpensive and fun they are to make!
To finish my room decor, my desk also got a little makeover. I just changed it a little by using a frame and more scrapbook paper. I also added a few other items from Hobby Lobby and Dollar Tree.
An of course my desk supplies and sticky notes had to be changed into a more Halloween theme.
Now I am so ready to start the Holiday season! I see myself here in my craft room enjoying a Pumpkin Spice Latte while planning and crafting my heart away!
Thank you for reading! I will see you soon with more details with the DIY’S from this post and my home decorations for this year.
