Black Urn Halloween Arrangement

christmascandyOctober 17, 2012

I went to Mich*ael's and saw a really cool Halloween arrangement they had in a black urn. It was over $200!!

But, I had a black urn at home that I bought at GdWl for less than $8!! I also had a witch hat I had bought at another GdWl, some black roses from DT, a sequined black bat multi-armed(?) pick from post Halloween clearance last year, and a wooden stick from the garage.

I went to HL and bought some green and purple holiday blingy decor, the witch boot Beware sign, and some black dried florals, all on sale! Then some purple birds and the Best Witches sign from GdWl, and a black and purple garland from WlMrt.

It is in the corner of the kitchen.

A close up of the boot sign:

The hat ( I stuffed it with plastic bags to keep the shape)

The Best Witches sign:

It doesn't photograph very well, but everyone who sees it IRL really likes it.

Happy Halloween,

Fabulous!!! Candy
I love that you can make "something from nothing" and do it so well.
It always blows me away when I see the price of some of the various arrangements. I call it forceful creativity esp when it's something I really

LOL..forceful creativity!!
Add "borrowed ispiration" too, as I didn't know I wanted to create the arrangement until I saw the one at Mich*aels.
BUT, after I saw it, and remembered I had the black urn, it became a case of "I need it, I want it, I have to have it!" LOL

Thanks ladies,

Candy, love your new arrangement you made.SWEEEET!!! What I like the most is all your Bling you add. So many neat things added to make this. I also like the blk, green and purple colors on this.

I think it's crazy the high prices they want for making up arrangements. I try to use a coupon when I do buy them for gifts. Won't be long and we can hit the after holiday sale for next year.haha
