two cute Halloween ideas from BHG

PurplemoonOctober 8, 2010

I just added these to our Halloween album, but thought I'd post them here too. They were on Better Homes & Gardens site, where I find a lot of our inspiration ideas.

Spooky Chandelier

Recycle an old umbrella as a haunting light fixture. Remove the fabric covering; stretch spider webbing over the ribs. Decorate with plastic spiders and battery-operated lanterns attached to the ribs with bent wire or S hooks. Tie rope around the handle, and hang from the ceiling with a plant hook or cup hook.

Fenced-In Centerpiece

Mini fencing from craft store, or a shallow basket would work. After Halloween, just add turkeys and switch to Thanksgiving display.

Enjoy,

Karen

Now how many broken umbrellas have I thrown away over the years???? My brain just doesn't function like this! It made a nice decoration. Cute little scene with the mini hay bales and pumpkins too. TFS Luvs
