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!
