Need a Quick and Inexpensive Halloween Vignette?

3 Materials
Are you decorating for Halloween and need a quick and inexpensive vignette on your table? Check your stash, you may already have all you need.
I started with some plates, candlesticks and a small vase.
Step 1: Gather up your supplies. I used 3 plates, 2 candlesticks and a small vase. If you don't have any old plates to use, you can find them at garage sales and at thrift stores. The same with candlesticks.

I glued the plates to the top of the candlesticks. I turned the vase upside down and glued the small plate to the top. Sometimes candlesticks can go either way - to or bottom up.
Step 2: Once they were glued, I sprayed painted them black and allowed them to dry. You may have to do two coats.
Step 3: I glued some bat trim onto the candlesticks. The bats hanging down were so cute. I did not put the trim on the small plate and vase. It had a scalloped edge and the trim did not look right.

I added some small pumpkins. You could add inexpensive ones from the dollar store, make your own or buy some.
Step 4: I added my Halloween salt and pepper shakers, some spider material, baby pumpkins and fall leaves.
