Witches Hat and Candelabras

Posted on

Going to the dollar store is sometimes like house hunting. You have to look at what it can be, not just what it is. On a recent trip to the Dollar Tree I had seen a witch hat and some cardboard candelabras. I looked them right over. A week later I went back and my mind must have been on a creative track because I immediately grabbed these items and saw what they could be, not just what they were hanging in the store.

Here is a before picture of the hat, this picture shows it stuffed with bags to make it stand up.

It took me a while to figure out exactly what I wanted on this hat, but I finally settled on some ribbon, jewels, large sequins and a bow.

To help with the display on my end table, I added the candelabras. I don’t have a before picture, but they were just plain black with nothing on them when I bought them. To add some glitter and color to them, I used my Smooch and a similar product that I used by mixing Perfect Pearls with some water in a small spray bottle. Then, I took some of my jewels and added them to the flame and smaller ones around to add some personality to it. I am very happy with how they turned out. It transformed a very plain cardboard cutout into a fun decorative piece.

I also found these adorable little spiders at the Dollar Tree and purchased a few to add to some of my decorations. You will see one of these spiders by my hat. The spider legs are made from a pipe cleaner and I didn’t want the wire sticking out of the end to scratch my table so I put a little hot glue on the ends and let it dry to prevent the scratching.

On this entire project I spent $4, not including the jewels and spray I already had.
