Turn Mini Pumpkins Into Cute Bats
Mix a little mischief into your Halloween decorations with these mini bat pumpkins. These not-too-scary creatures are fun to create and will look great grouped together on your mantel, entry table or as a centerpiece.
Kids will love helping you create a spooktacular vignette of peeking pumpkins with mini gourds and a variety of inexpensive bowls and lidded dishes.
Give Them the Evil Eye
Give a devilish look to framed art or family photos with blacked-out eyes. Just cut black construction paper to size, then attach it directly to the glass or canvas with double-sided tape. Tip: It’s important not to use packing tape, gift-wrap tape or duct tape when attaching eyes to a painted canvas because it can damage the surface.
Fastened for Feasting
Add leather belts to ordinary dining chairs to have your guests wondering if they were invited to your home to eat dinner — or to be dinner. Tip: Be sure to turn the buckles to the back to prevent guests from leaning against the sharp metal edges.
Orange You Scared?
While orange and black has been the go-to Halloween color scheme for decades, it’s seldom seen as sophisticated. To decorate your Halloween dinner party in this palette with a posh twist, consider incorporating the orange strictly through accents, then layering gray and brown tones in with the black.
