Vintage Inspired "Spooky Lab" Halloween Vignette


In the mood for something frightening or terrifying? May I suggest researching medical practices of those used in the past. Migraine sufferer? Here...let the doctor drill a hole into your head. Feeling depressed? An ice picket to the eye should cure that right up. And this my friends, was the inspiration for my Halloween entryway vignette. Well, and the fact that I use to work down the hall from a cadaver lab. Well, and the fact that every year my hubby complains that my Halloween decor is too cutesy. So this is what I deemed my "creepy compromise"; pretty for me and spooky for him.

 I think this is my favorite holiday display to date! I just may keep it up until next year. 
Would that be strange? I'm not a fan of spending a lot of dough on holiday decorations, unless, of course, it's Christmas. So I did my best to work with what I had. The skull, skeleton hands, and apothecary jars were my only new purchases for this vignette.

The vintage anatomy prints were freebies that I downloaded 
and printed from The Graphic Fairy's website.
The potion labels were also free printables. You can grab yourself a set of your own here.
The spider specimen art was a super simple DIY project I shared a few years ago.
I think it makes a perfect addition to my little spooky lab.

Can you believe I scored this cubbie at Goodwill for just $2.00?
It was originally a really drab brown, so I spray painted it a pretty ivory white.
It came from Home Goods, so I really feel like I scored a great deal on it!
The "Trick or Treat" sign is from Blocks, Paper, and Paint on Etsy.
Darlene sells the cutest personalized blocks and holiday signs, 
and I can't help but to sing her praises!

I added blue tinted mason jars because..... duh. They're blue tinted mason jars!
If I was a mad scientist I would keep all of my potions in these pretty little gems.
