Our family loves to celebrate Halloween, but living in Australia means we can't go too over the top with our seasonal decorating ( After all we are in the midst of Spring here!) It is amazing though, how you can capture the halloween spirit with just a few splashes of orange and green.
|Candle and Acorns|
I love using natural elements such as pine cones, seedpods and nuts.
I decided that my green apples could add an interesting dimension to the dining table, which by the time I had finished had a distinctly seasonal feel to it.
Here in Sydney we may not have the gorgeous orange and red fall leaves to compliment our Halloween decorating, but our nightly sunsets are certainly making up for it!
|Our Book Art Pages|
We are a family of book lovers and always looking for new uses for old books, rather than throw out one of our "treasured but torn' books my daughter and I decided that we would create some book art.
So we scoured the internet for silhouettes that we liked and printed them directly onto the pages of our old book. They have such a lovely nostalgic feel about them. Now all we have to decide is how to display them. We plan to either place them in matching frames as a set or hang them from little clips amongst a photo display.
|New use for Old books|
What I love about this idea is you can run with any theme you want, coastal, nature, literature or even children's book illustrations.
