Spooky China Cabinet Makeover

Halloween China Cabinet Idea

This post first appeared on eighteen25.

I adore Halloween. You can see many of the Halloween projects I’ve posted on my blog here. We go all out.  I love to share ideas for halloween decorations. In case you’re wondering yes, I’m that annoying Mom that makes her whole family “match” Halloween costumes.

I love a “spooky” halloween but not a gory or scary one.  With that in mind I thought I’d create something a little bit spooky in my dining room this year.



This “someone’s watching me” china cabinet.  I thought it was a fun, but subtle way to scare our guests this halloween.  I love the fact that you might not notice it right away when you walk in the door, but later it may startle you!



To do this, I cut out lots of eyes with my e-cutter.

Then I just added a bit of adhesive to the back.  Since I’m applying the eyeballs to glass I didn’t need to worry about what adhesive, it will just scrape off.

I then stuck them randomly all over my china cabinet!

A fun, cheap and simple Halloween decoration!



I love how they look with my Halloween Centerpiece from last year!




We’re ready for a party, who’s coming to dinner?

  1. Your decorations are wonderful! So clever, and so not-orange and not-scary-gory. Love it!

    I am, however, seriously distracted by the peek at your blue and white china. Is this a particular pattern that you have been collecting?
