Subtle Halloween Decorations

Subtle Halloween Decorations

Believe it or not, this room is subtly decorated for Halloween. The decorations are so subtle, in fact, that you can't even really see them in this picture. After the jump, find out where these clever decorations are hiding…

The spooky halloween decorations are hiding in the lamp! By day, it's a beautifully unassuming lamp. At night, when the lamp is switched on, it's a Halloween themed shadow box!

I found this simple little Halloween decorating idea at House*Tweaking, a home decor blog that has recently become part of my daily internet bookmark rounds. The blogger, Dana, wanted a Halloween decorating project she could do with her sons that would still blend in with her gorgeous decor. She reports that her sons loved the project and I think she definitely succeeded in staying within the margins of respectably cute.

I could see this project working for practically any holiday. Use leaf and turkey shapes for Thanksgiving, snowflakes and angels for Christmas, or hearts for Valentine's Day. Or, for no reason whatsoever, cut out a message for a loved one ("I love you" maybe?) and then ask them to turn on the light!
