Having friends and family over for holiday dinners is one of my very favorite gatherings. This Halloween I wanted to come up with an extra cute table setting. I made some spider plates, sewed some black napkins to match, and painted branches black for a spooky centerpiece-you know, the normal stuff (wink wink). Then my over-achieving inner hostess was like “this looks boring”. And heaven help us nothing is more frightening than a dull-themed dinner table ;). After some brainstorming I came up with the idea to add confetti to the table to really kick of the festive a notch! Let’s just say that Halloween confetti variety is sparse so I decided to make my own! I’ll let you in on a little secret too…this is the easiest craft you will ever do! Now lets make a mess….
– Black and orange card-stock paper- I just used leftover paper from another project so this craft was completely free!
– Circle hole punch (or a punches in whatever shape you want you confetti to be in)
First, decide what shapes you want you confetti to be. Then, using you punch and scissors cut small pieces of card-stock in the shapes. Done. Craft complete!
I liked the look of both circle and triangle shapes on my Halloween-themed table. The mixture seemed to play up the fun and festive that is Halloween!
Now it’s time to party!
What’s your favorite ways to celebrate Halloween??
