This year was a good one for spiders in the garden. Their population was robust and I enjoyed greeting spiders of all shapes and sizes as I tended to plantings around their webs. This year the spiders served as my inspiration for some DIY Halloween décor.

Combining spiders and my love of succulents, I came up with a fun and easy Halloween centerpiece. I played on the words "black widow" and incorporated black floral lace.  I love to create centerpieces that can go from day to night, and this one is no exception. Flickering candlelight makes for great ambiance. The shadows cast from the candlelight through the lace and succulents add yet another layer of spookiness. 

The height of the black widow lamps means they will take center stage. I surrounded the lamps with assorted spiny succulents and embellished the table and plantings with fake spiders and spiderwebs. 

Supplies:

  • Glass vessels
  • Black lace
  • Scissors
  • Mod Podge
  • Foam brush
  • Newspaper
  • Candles
  • Assorted succulents
  • Fake spiders and spiderwebs
