We have pumpkins and black lace-covered candles on our table to get us into the Halloween spirit (as if we needed help). Maia likes to arrange and rearrange them, especially when the candles are lit and light is flickering out of the black lace in cobwebby patterns onto the table and the pumpkins.
I thought I'd share a few photos and a bit of info about the candleholders:
The lace-covered candle holders are an idea I found in Susan Wasinger's Artful Halloween book. They are super simple—just black lace attached to glass jars or votive holders with Mod Podge. I tried some with white lace, too, but the black is really cool for Halloween.
