Thanks.

A big part of the essence of Halloween is the darkness, the blackness, the spookiness.

1. DIY Candelabra.

Isn’t this a show stopper? Built out of parts of several different lights and other odds and ends (tutorial included), this beaded candelabra is classy and decorative.

What I like about this idea is that the smiling gourds provide a simple touch of festivity without going over-the-top.
