This year for Halloween I want to decorate in a metallic, elegant style. I also wanted to try to make and find pieces that could be re-used for Thanksgiving and Christmas if possible. I think a Halloween tablescape is the best way to showcase elegant decorations in a way everyone can appreciate!
I put my pieces together in a mock Halloween tablescape in my craft room to see how they all look together, and it is just the right mixture of classy and spooky.
Each and every piece was handmade from WalMart, dollar store, and thrift store pieces. I spent less than $40 on the entire set-up, including the white plates.
The placemats are made from a piece of Halloween “creepy” fabric that I found at the dollar store and cut into pieces. I used the same fabric to fill spaces inside of my cauldrons and pumpkins. The black roses are also from the dollar store!
I put blocks of wood inside the cauldrons and pumpkins so I could place my candles and skulls on top. I covered the blocks with the black fabric or flowers so it couldn’t be seen. I also covered buckets and jars with white fabric in the background to use as risers for a few of the pieces.
The candles inside my mini-vases and mason jars are battery powered orange faux tealight candles. I think they lend just the right amount of Halloween flair with the lights off!
