When I opened that box, inspiration struck, and I got to work clearing off the buffet table.
I came up with this first:
But it was a little bare in the middle. I knew I wanted to use the big frame I had left over from breaking the bathroom mirror, but wasn't sure how to make it less empty. Pinterest to the rescue! I found a tutorial for making a cute "Spooky" banner, and 2 hours later, it was hung. Most appropriately, I made the accordion folds from paper out of a Frankenstein book.
PS: I love that bat garland from Martha Stewart. I bought it on clearance after last Halloween & have been waiting for a chance to open that box.
PPS: I used Command strips to hang the frame. Those are genius!
