Behind the scenes - Halloween '13

I posted the DIY on the Spooky Banner, but totally forgot about the rest of the Halloween decor!    
Click HERE for the Halloween decor post and HERE for the spooky banner tutorial.
Lanterns:  Formerly on the back porch. Hot glued spiders and battery operated candles 
All pumpkins are from Target (previous years) 
Wheat: From out wedding centerpieces 
Black crows:  Tuesday Morning (previous years) 

Looking at this place setting, I realize I have Target to thank! 
Read on. 
Dollar aisle pumpkins plus 2 coats of plastic spray paint I already had on hand.
Yet again, Potterybarn as inspiration.  I loved THESE napkins!
I found these kitchen towels with crows for $9.99, they came in a pack of 2 along with the black printed ones you see on the table setting.
I took the two black ones, cut them in two, and used them as table napkins.
They are just for looks, so no one will see the tattered edge since I folded it under.
For $20 I got two kitchen towels and 4 napkins.
The black plates were on clearance at Target and with extra deductions using my redcard
and more discounts on Threshold tableware on the cartwheel app, they ended up
being around $1.30 each.  

I scored these black raven silhouettes after Halloween on clearance at Joann's last year. 

$8 spider garland from Target.  
Wayyyy too long.  I cut it in half and used one half for the hallway mirror. 
The funkins I got on clearance after Halloween at Hobby Lobby last year.  
I cut the spiders from the other half of the garland and hung them from the 
chandelier with fishing line. 
Another super easy DIY courtesy of the Hob Lob. 
Letters were 50% off, and all Christmas items were 50% off, so instead of buying the burlap 
ribbon from the ribbon section, I scored more discounts in the Holiday department.  

Halloween is quickly approaching! 
Trick or treat and Happy Monday!
