Decorating tips for Halloween

Decorating tips for Halloween

Make sure the most horrifying time awaits those who sit down at your table!

The ghost

  1. Cut out the shape of a ghost in fabric, felt or thick paper.
  2. Tape it to the inside windowpane or pin it on the back of a curtain.
  3. Give it a backlit effect, day or night, by projecting a light onto the ghost’s back. Effect guaranteed.

The light fixture

  1. Gather two or three branches to form a bouquet.
  2. Hang it from the ceiling.
  3. Attach glass lanterns to the strongest branches.
  4. Decorate it with spiders, bats and black crows. You can also decorate a chandelier above the table with these little critters.

The tablecloth

  1. Use a tablecloth or a thick painting canvas or simply two lengths of cloth sewn together. You don’t need to tuck in the cloth.
  2. Use a stencil in the form of a leaf or cut a leaf shape out of a thick plastic sheet (mylar). That cut leaf then becomes a stencil.
  3. Using a stencil brush and two-tone acrylic paint, trace the contours of the leaf in a circular motion.
  4. Wipe off the stencil, place it a bit further on and start over.
  5. It is important not to saturate the brush with paint. Remove excess paint before starting a circular motion with the brush.

The witch's cauldron

  1. Place a cast-iron soup tureen on an elevated trivet and slide an atomizer underneath. This little device has a mechanism that, if immersed in water, immediately turns the water into a misty fog.
  2. Use real or fake foliage to add camouflage around the bottom of the trivet.
