Spooky Fun Halloween Decoration

Welcome to the monthly Creative Craft Hop

hosted by Sara from Birdz of a Feather

Welcome friends, readers, and visitors from

Summer is flying by and it will be Halloween before we know it!

It’s time to start thinking about pumpkins and Halloween!

Today I’m going to show you a quick craft you can do

to add to your Halloween decor

All you need is a plastic charger plate, ribbon, wire and paper

I used a black charger plate {Hobby Lobby} that I already had

and several different ribbons from my stash

You could also use a round pizza pan from the Dollar Store

and paint it black

My original thought was to paint ghosts on the charger,

but then I got a better idea…paper ghosts!

I traced the inner circle of the charger on a piece of white card stock

so I’d know what size to make the ghost to fit inside

Then I drew a ghost shape and cut it out

I decided he needed a buddy!

AND here’s the best part!

Masking tape holds them in place so they can easily be removed

and the charger can return to the tablescaping supplies~

The paper ghosts can be kept to use again next year

Use a black marker to draw small circles for the ghostly faces

Make the bow by folding wide wired ribbon into loops

Secure it in the center with floral wire to form the bow

Then I added a length of burlap ribbon under the bow,

securing it on with the wire

Then a piece of candy corn ribbon {Hobby Lobby}

is tied on the bow center hiding the wire

I wanted to decorate the rim of the charger with candy corn

Candy corn is easy to draw or paint

You can see a tutorial here

Again I decided to use paper instead of paint

and found a perfect candy corn graphic on PicMonkey

I made a page full of candy corn and printed it out on card stock

If you’d like to print this out for your own craft

you can download the printable here

Once the ghosts and candy corn were taped on,

I used tape to secure the bow wire to the back of the charger

so the bow could hang over the edge of the charger in front

to fill the space I left on the charger rim

An easel stand is a great way to display the plate for Halloween decor

or to create a vignette anywhere in your home

You can get the faux candy corn pieces on the table on Amazon here

Watch out, other ghosts are likely to join the fun!

You can see the tutorial for the Burlap Bottle Ghost here

You could also add a command strip or glue a picture hanger on the back

and hang the plate on your wall or door

This heavy duty 2 sided tape is great for hanging things

without marring the surface with a nail

It is available on Amazon here

just recommending things I like and use!

I hope I’ve inspired you to have some Halloween fun!

    Love it Jenna! Reminds me of the time Hubs and I stayed in a Haunted room (on purpose) but didn’t bump into any ghosts. He bought me a casper the friendly ghost colouring book as a consolation lol!

  4. What a cute decoration! Too cute to be spooky 🙂

  5. Jenna, you amaze me girl. I just love your craft today. How stinkin’ cute. Thanks for sharing the tutorial.

  6. Jenna, this is so cute and not spooky! My girls would love it. Halloween will be here before we turn around. Happy Thursday!

    I absolutely LOVE this! Such a cute project AND you get to easily remove the design if you want to reuse the charger. Genius! Thanks so much for sharing. This couldn’t be cuter. Pinning.

    This is really cute, Jenna! Found you at Crafty Creators Link Party #31 on Life as a Leo Wife.

  10. I saw a Halloween display in the drug store yesterday and it made me stop in amazement that this summer has flown by!

    Jenna I love your creativity and knowing you can dis-assemble this and use it all again in different ways is genius! Thanks for your DIY…so cute and clever. Have a great day my friend.

    Jenna as I said, I love your creativity…Don’t know why that is “anonymous” in the above comments….It’s ME from Me and my Captain! lol

    Absolutely adorable and I love the fact that everything is removable. Very clever!

  14. I thought for sure you painted this!! Adorable idea

  15. Cute project. I understand why you made it from paper so that you could reuse the plate but I think it is adorable enough to use every year. Pinned and love how it looks.

  16. Your halloween plate is sooo cute! Great idea using paper as it seems it’d be faster than painting, although I’m sure with your mad skills you could paint it up quickly. Hope to see you share your links every Thursday 9pm (est) thru Monday at the #HomeMattersParty.

  17. I’m ready for fall and a little spooky fun:@)

  18. Nancy says:

  20. wow all of these look amazing! can’t believe halloween is coming up soon

    This is so pretty & perfect for those without a cutting machine! I love that you can remove everything and reuse the charger for other occasions. I’ve also never made a bow like you did, & I’m going to try it. It looks so much easier than holding all the loops! Pinned! Happy hopping & thanks for sharing on Crafty Creators!
