Halloween has come and gone, but the photos and memories live on. This year I hosted a small gathering of friends.
The Handelier was created using $1 plastic hands found at the Dollar Tree. I gently screwed an eye bolt into each "wrist," then strung to an existing light fixture using craft wire (varying lengths) to create the illusion of a chandelier made of floating hands.
$5 worth of muslin from the fabric store + a couple $1 packs of assorted-size styrofoam balls + twigs from the backyard = spooky centerpiece. (Or corner piece, rather...)
Layers of dry white and black beans + $5 bunches of red roses and white African roses + an assortment of skulls, crows and white candles from the Dollar Tree + free twigs from the backyard. The wooden half-crate was a $7 score from Michaels, and gets used for various table displays throughout the year.
These cardboard witch hats were discounted to under $1 each the week before Halloween. Using a seam ripper, I was able to poke holes through the tips of the hat and string them up from the existing light fixture using craft wire. The red bulb was a $6 score from Home Depot.
No Halloween party would be complete with a subtle nod to the magic of Hogwarts. Bottles were all purchased at Michaels on sale for under $1 each. I will have a future post coming soon in which I plan to share my Harry-inspired imagination station. (So check back!)
