Utilize a candle holder for an eyeball. I used old dried up mini eyeball bubble containers, but a ping pong ball with a drawn or painted on eye will suffice as well. You can even add a mini led light votive underneath the candle holder to make it glow in the dark and add ambiance.
I picked up these purple glittery spiders at the Dollar Store and decided to crochet a mini web with white yarn, to make the spiders look crafty 🙂
I found this cute baby owl at the Dollar Store too and couldn’t resist the purchase and added him to the top of the TV. I will probably leave him there through Christmas and add a Santa hat to make him festive, just for some added whimsy.
I actually recycled last year’s Halloween costume into a mannequin so to speak. I borrowed an old pair of my husband’s jeans and an old pair of his shoes and stuffed everything with old bed sheets or old clothes. I added a necklace and placed a pumpkin sticker on top and some 3D movie glasses and an old hat to give him a little style. We call him Wolfie and he actually freaked us and other people out a couple of times, as you actually think someone is there (unexpectedly) on your couch. But he’s great company and a great watch dog. I decided to keep him through Christmas as well, of course I’ll have to make him more festive for the season.
My daughter came up with the idea of glue gunning the bottom of a wine glass to the bottom of a candle holder to add height and dimension. I added in a white spider and blood glob and cotton spider web and purple skeleton toy and plastic spider rings in side the wine glass base. You can also add a led light votive as well.
