I've been staring at this dust-collecting-fruit bowl-thrift find for weeks now. It has served as a great book end these last few years but I've been thinking, it's time for a costume change!
Supplies: Mardi Gras beads, other decorative beads (whatever you may want to hang from the chandelier), fruit bowl or colander, spray paint, hot glue and toilet paper cardboard inserts.
Step 1: Construct a few Toilet Paper Roll Candles (I used 5 for this project).
Step 2: Turn the fruit bowl upside down and place candles and beads in your desired location. Mardi Gras beads are also used to hang the chandelier - adjust the length by using less or more beads.
I'll be taking this guy to Ohio next week to be used for my Sister's Halloween party. I intend on adding a few more details once I arrive. I'd like to hang spider cut outs (or maybe bats?) at different lengths from the middle.
