A haunted birdcage? Yes..this one most definitely has started to look it!  I have some guaze ghosts, bats  and goblins in  and flying witch( attached to the  full moon)  ...all ready for the haunting time!
I am used an old birdcage, twigs, mini lights and accessories...along with black sprayed moss... to feature my Putz Haunted house I made ..which was inspired by  the gals of the Delphi P&R board, when I joined their putz house swap last Christmas.  .
What better way to begin decorating for Halloween than to make your own   decorations? Something to build a tradition for your family and friends to celebrate for years to come!
 On Halloween night, I will cover the treats table with cheesecloth  and place an unpolished pewter tray in the center  with used candles from around the house to cast a ghoulish glow on  the goodies.
No Halloween is complete without glowing Jack-O-Lanterns. I Used found objects to decorate, mainly from rummage sales this year...this bird cage being one of them.   
Happy Haunting this Halloween!

More decorations at

Grandma Wellman had this flying cackling witch in her living room each Halloween. You clap your hands and she cackles..scares Stevie, so we stick her in the jar instead and have pulled her batteries.LOL
