This centerpiece was a cinch. I started with a large round wood serving tray (square would work well too), a large glass gallon wine jug, dead branches that fell in my yard, several glass votive holders, one sprig of Halloween garland (purchased at AC Moore), and last but not least, my favorite item in this arrangement, the silver glitter skull (purchased at TJ Maxx). The best thing about this arrangement is that after Halloween, you can take away the skull and add a mini pumpkin or some bright colored gourds to the mix and it can stay looking great into November.
Some of these items were actually purchased a year ago because I like to scope out sales the day after Halloween, and save any items i get for the next year. If you have the patience to be thrifty, FYI November 1st Target usually puts everything Halloween related on clearance. Maybe I will see you there. Happy Halloween weekend everyone!
