Poison Control

I have to admit it—Halloween is growing on me.  Two years ago I put up a few small decorations in a “nod” to Halloween—the first in something like 16 years of marriage!  Last year, I put up a few more decorations.  This year…well, of course I had to expand yet again!

I fell in love with Down to Earth Style’s mantel, which included a very, very cool vintage-style “Poison” sign.

I loved it. 

It loved me. 

I had to make one.  THAT VERY DAY!

(Hers came from HomeGoods.  I designed this one on my Silhouette.)

Of course, that was only the beginning of my temporary insanity…

I used the free Harry Potter Potions labels from Over the Big Moon to spookify my collection of old bottles…

…and a free printable book cover from chickabug to turn a hardback book into a magical tome…

…along with a couple of oil lamps and a creepy-crawly or two, I have an appropriately creepy Halloween display!

And can I tell you how much fun it was to play with the Halloween overlays and enhancements on PicMonkey?

Poison…may cause death…or heartburn!

This sign is also available for purchase in my Etsy shop.

This project has been featured at the All-Star Block Party or Mod Vintage Life.

The sign and the bottles and the addition of the scale and oil lamps made a great Halloween vignette.

Great sign, Korrie, I love it! You're adding in every year and I'm adding less. The sad thing is that Halloween is my birthday!

Sharon @ Elizabeth & Co. said...

Sounds like you're now hooked on Halloween! Love that sign - scary, but fun!

Cool Korrie! No wonder you're loving Halloween!!! The sign and the labels are awesome!
Great job!

TheMoonAndMe said...

That is wickedly cool. :) My silhouette and I don't get along as well as you and yours. I can't believe how awesome your sign is. When I saw Down to Earth's sign I wondered if she had made it. You rock. :)

Unknown said...
