Take a look at the top five products that can make your table as spooky as can be:
here is a quick and easy decoration I've made for Halloween!
4 pumpkins ; some spider web (here) ; a little skeleton head ; 1 food jar (from ikea) ; 1 old pharmacy jar ; 1 glass cloche for scented candle ; 2 giant spiders, giant spiders (bought a long time ago in a toy store); and a black curtain as a table cloth.
For the brain jar, I've used a food jar and a plastic brain. With the water, the brain looks bigger! And to give the formol look, I added a little bit of white sirup (here anis).
I used patafix to fix the big spider coming down the wall.
In the old pharmacy jar, I made quickly some rayés with marzipan leftovers (basically a little ball of marzipan in which I've added an edible eye from Wilton. )
These are the pics of my halloween party from last year! It was, easy and fun, and the kids loved it!
Hope you will find some inspirations!!
- As a beverage, Fresh blood with ice ( red sirup and frozen ants in ice cube)
- Giant's fingers (white sausages + almond) on Deer heart ( beetroot)
- Old marshmallows (green and brown food coloring in a plastic bag and marshmallows, shake to obtain the color you want)
For the decoration of the table, I used:
Just buy some ugly candies such as snake, eyes etc... and put them in a jar with red sirup...
I also fullfilled a jar with red berries and added some white little pumpkins!

So today, you can learn how to make a spider web wreath for halloween.
Arrange the twine around the wreath to make it look like a spider web. Be sure to start with a knot so you can hang the wreath on your door once it's done.
Leave a bit a twine at the end and glue a spider (hiding the end of the twine).
Glue one (or as many as you want) spiders on the wreath and you are done!
