SPOOKTACULAR TABLESCAPE DIRECTIONS:

 

TO CREATE THE SPIDERWEB NAPKINS:

  1. Iron the napkins.
  2. Fold the napkins in half, then in half again.
  3. Use black fabric marker to mark the center of the napkin.
  4. Use the black fabric marker and ruler to draw a cross then a line from each corner to create an “x”.
  5. Draw curved lines to create the webbing in-between each straight line.

 

 

 

TO CREATE THE SPIDER NAPKIN RINGS:

  1. Cut the cardboard tube to width of the black ribbon.
  2. Wrap the cardboard with the ribbon. Add hot glue around the ring of cardboard then cover with ribbon.
  3. Cut off the excess.
  4. Attach the faux spider on top of the ring with hot glue.

 

TO CREATE THE SPOOKY CENTERPIECE:

  1. Fill the mini terrariums with Spanish moss and faux spiders.
  2. Place the terrariums on top of the goblets.
  3. Find a branch in the yard and spray paint it black. Allow to dry.
  4. Paint and glitter the faux skulls if desired. Spray paint black and sprinkle black glitter on while the paint is still wet or add a layer of mod podge after the paint dries, sprinkle the glitter. Allow to dry.
  5. Tape the bats onto the tablecloth as if they are flying up and across.
  6. Place the stick in a vase and tape bats on as if they are flying upward to make it appear as if they are flying up and away in a flock. You can also use hot glue for this if desired.

 

TO DRESS THE TABLE:

  1. Place the linens on the table.
  2. Arrange the goblets, candlesticks and vase on the table as desired. PRO TIP: place the vase in a way that it lines up with the bats on the table, so it looks like they are flocking up and away!
  3. Set your plates, flatware, napkins with rings and enjoy!
