Halloween might be over a month away, but if you host a big party, it’s never too early to start planning the details. Over the next few weeks, I’ll show you several DIY Halloween projects to amaze and scare your guests!
Start by layering orange and black fabrics on a long, narrow table. Check out the linen department at Goodwill for unique finds. The orange “table cloth” is a vintage curtain and the flocked polka dot overlay is a shower curtain. Each was only $3.99.
Continue building up the backdrop for your decorations. A wood trellis with old paint is a spooky alternative to a tombstone. Stretch fake spider webbing across the front and add giant spiders and it starts to look really creepy. The candy dish ($1.99) is shaped like a spider web too.
What’s a party without food? I made my own tiered serving tray with pewter plates, candlesticks and a scalloped metal/glass stand ($.99 - $3.99). Use heavy duty glue to attach the pieces together. Look for items that have seen a better day. The more beat-up looking the better.
Now that the foundation is done, next week I’ll continue with simple DIY décor projects.
