The older I become, the more fun I seem to have on Halloween. I’m going to pay a little homage to Martha Stewart, her phenomenal team and all you creatives for excellent ideas.
If you would like these pillows to sit outside consider outdoor friendly fabrics. You can purchase the stencil through ChapmanPlace on Etsy.com for $7.99
Always reccomended: Personalize your space using different fabrics, colors and the message itself.
Spooky Spider Wreath. Purchase a wreath and spray paint it black. Stuff some moss in and around the center as "nesting" material. You can even spray paint this a contrasting color for dramatic effect. Purchase FAKE plastic spiders from any toystore or online source and one big nasty mama spider and hot glue them onto the wreath.
Can't handle the spiders? Me either. Try a simpler wreath like this one. Just add googly eyes!
LOVE these. If you don't like getting your fingers gooey carving pumpkins, try wrapping them in fishnets. You can purchase these for just a few dollars at TJMaxx, Amazon, Target, etc.
Creepy Cupcakes. For you crafty bakers you can purchase these printable cupcake toppers and cup wrappers from sueniosencantados for $6 per download on etsy.com Too vintage for you? Search etsy for other easy downloadable cupcake holders and toppers.
Dreadful Bed of Roses. You can take this as far and as literal as you'd like. Country Living.com will show you how to make this eery bouquet using black crepe paper. Store them for next year.
If you are one of those people that expense means nothing for the sake of an amazing theme party, purchase a dozen real roses and spray paint just the flower black. Customize your colors to your decore. You could try grey roses or a combination with one or two in contrasting colors.
Your dinner party will not want to leave ... and might not have the chance with this Edgar Allen Poe tablescape. Courtney's DIY table at CourtneyOutLoud.wordpress.com shows us how easy it is to combine frugal finds into a table setting. The Flatware is from an antique store, the black goblets are from target, gargoyles from the dollar store and feather charges were a DIY project for under $5.00. Anything is possible with a little will power, quote the raven, nevermore.
Dinner tales from the crypts prove to be excellent inspiration for halloween. A very malice Alice setting shown above with "drink me if you dare" shots and Mad Hatter place cards.
Hopefully you’ve gotten a few wicked ideas to customize hallows eve. Happy Halloween Dwellers. . .
