The months chug by and each year I tend to forget the magical
feeling that surrounds the Halloween season.
It's an innocent thing for me as I recall the exciting memories from
my childhood that this time of year holds.
spoiling us with creative and fun
And oh those decorations of ol'...I think I define the magic most to
those colorful vintage creations.
So now I am on an eternal mission to capture the
party scenes from my memory and stuff my attic each year
with all that I can find.
until after Saturday night's party.
How I did it:
Everything is draped in black plastic sheeting found at Lowes
I tea dyed, tattered and shredded old lace curtains found at thrift stores
I tea dyed and shredded basic cheese cloth found at any fabric or craft store
I scour my cupboards and shelves for anything orange or black such as the coffee percolator
I use lots of cans of flat black spray paint on candle sticks, metal serving dishes, etc.
I use tons of flameless votives and flameless pillar candles
