A Hogwarts Display

Good morning and welcome to the Monday before Halloween.  🙂  Do you have your candy ready for the trick-or-treaters?  Have you made any fun and spooky sweets yet?  I’m hoping I’ll have time to make a little something later this week or over the weekend.

I’m continuing my Halloween tour today and we’re heading into the room off the foyer to see a fun little display that reminds me of my favorite magical place…Hogwarts.  🙂  Grey and I took a trip to Harry Potter World over the summer and this vignette really makes me think of the walk through Hogwarts that is long and meandering that you take before you go on the big Quidditch ride.

The tray is actually a stone Lazy Susan, so this display can be turned on a whim.  I love the candle sticks — they remind me so much of Slytherin house.  The tombstone is from the Target Dollar Spot and is a heavy concrete material, which was an exciting find — no styrofoam here!  The labels are printables and can be found here.

Inside of the huge glass jar is just a bunch of black tulle and a skeleton hand.  🙂  Dark-covered vintage books and a feather complete the display.  Feathers are to Halloween as sand is to summer when it comes to decorating tools around here — you just can never have enough!

 I hope you have a great start to your week!
