I started to buy stuff last year once everything was on clearance. I got things for at least 50% off and some as low as 90% off!
I've only gotten my fireplace decorated so far.
I've got Martha Stewart bats flying out of the fireplace up the wall.
The black stand I have the white pumpkin on I got from TJ Maxx. It was in really bad condition and was silver with a lot of the paint chipped off. I found it in the clearance section and knew right away what I would do with it.
A little black paint and black glitter and I had my pumpkin stand!
The crow and sign was from Target last year. I think they were only $1.50 each.
These pumpkins were 75% off at Target last year. I love the black & white polka dots on the stem of the big one. The black glitter BOO sign I got at a cute little shop in Oak Glen, which is up in the mountains. We go there once a year so this sign brings back fun memories.
Well, that's all I've gotten up so far. I have lots more to do but being sick is keeping me from doing it all at once.
I'll post more as I dig things out.
