Halloween Vignette

Halloween is just around the corner and I hope this display gives you some Halloween decoration ideas.   It is one of my FAVORITE holidays.  I pretty much love every bit of it, from gaudy plastic spiders to sophisticated decorations.  Costumes! Candy!  I could go on and on.  This particular vignette was going for an old-timey, sophisticated macabre.

Halloween Decorations; cast iron vases
Before you make hot-glue spider webs read further down this post.

The cast iron vases were created from two cheap glass vases.  You can see the tutorial for faux cast iron here.

Detail of Halloween hot-glue spider web

I added an old picture, and lord my Mama would smack me, but I can’t remember which relative this is.   Surrounding it are spider webs made from hot glue.  I thought I was a genius making all those strings…  And I was EXCEPT, marble is porous.  And the tabletop is marble…  *scrape* *scrape* *scrape* Make sure to attach the hot glue to items you know will release the glue easily.

Idea for Sophisticated Halloween Decorations
Check out how well the faux cast iron finish on the vases matches the real cast iron table!

Topping it all off is my lovely bouquet of dead daisies.  The whole display makes me feel like someone left these fresh flowers by a lovely picture and then abandoned them for 100 years.  I love that dark Halloween feeling!  Must be a closet goth at heart.

    • :). I am often afraid people think I am serious. A lot of my writing is very tongue in cheek and meant to be kinda silly. Sophisticated macabre falls under that category.
