I have my very own Halloween table setting. I told you, I love Halloween! I hope to start a tradition in the next year or two when my son is a little older. I would love to have a spooky Halloween themed dinner one night during the month of October. Since my son is only 18 months, we will have to wait to start that tradition. But for now we do like to have friends over for a Halloween get together. Today I thought I would share what our Halloween dining table looks like. I also want to share 2 mini tutorials on how to make the spider web doily table runner, and how to make some Halloween name/place cards.
But first let me show off a few details of what you will find on the table. I have a Frankenstein salt and pepper shaker.
There are pumpkin plates and cups.
The table is accessorized with various spider candle holders.
As we get ready for this years Halloween party, I thought I would share a tutorial on the place cards that I will be using.
Halloween Place Cards
You will need:
- Black paper
- Mini clothes pins
- Glue gun
- Scissors(or just use your Silhouette or Cricut to cut the stencil for you. That’s what I did.)
Step 1. Cut out your name card shapes. All I did was Google bat stencil or spider stencil. I browsed through the images until I found one that I liked. I had my Cricut cut my stencils for me.
|Step 4. Tie ribbon around your napkin.|| |
I cut 4 different designs.
Spider Web Doily Table Runner
I feel silly giving step by step instructions for this since you can probably figure this out on your own. So I will make this even more brief than the last tutorial. I had my Cricut cut out the stencil below. I cut it out in various sizes on white paper. Then I glued the white spider web to black paper to make the web more stable and less flimsy. Then I just laid them on the table. The stencil I used was from this website. Any questions?
That is what eating, Halloween style, look like at our home.
