I thought it was time to give my chandelier a spooky touch.
I wound an autumn garland, and black and white wired ribbon around it. I also added black wired ribbon to each arm.
It seems like everyone is doing the glittery ravens and skulls this year. From Target to all the little drug stores. I love them though. I love the look of that black silhouette everywhere. I remember when Martha first started showing them in her magazine a few years ago.
That issue had templates for a crow, a bat, an owl and a cat. I cut out dozens of them from black foam and I still use them every year. Now you can just buy them from her line at Michaels or Joannes! You have to admit Martha knows how to do Halloween.
And speaking of Martha. I just picked up her October issue and I love this whole section on spooky specimens. Very elegant but still curiously haunted.
Happy Spooky Mondays!
Make sure to visit Wendy at Wendy's Adventures in Wonderland.
Well I couldn't wait any longer. I had my October background and banner done weeks ago. I was going to wait until the PM party but all this Monday spookiness just gets me into that mood. So here it is!
