Spooktacular Flowers

Marc J. Sievers

Every year for Halloween, I love to turn up the spook factor in my home while still keeping things chic.  I fill silver bowls with colorful candy corn, replace some of my chandelier bulbs with flickering bulbs, and even place black crows (with red rhinestone eyes!) on the sills of my windows.  But one of the easiest decorating tricks is adding store-bought spider webbing and fuzzy spiders to already existing flower arrangements!  It’s a great budget-friendly way of turning ordinary flowers into a creepy centerpiece.  Have a safe, fun, and spooktacular Halloween!


Directions

  1. Choose your favorite type of flower and arrange them in a simple clear vase.
  2. Then wrap the spider webbing around the arrangement and vase.
  3. Place a few whimsical spiders in and around the webbing.

Tip: A flower arrangement set on your dining room table during dinner should be no more than eight inches tall.  You want to create a low-lying display, something that can easily be “peeked” over so guests can converse with one another naturally.
