I am busy preparing for my own adult Halloween Party this Saturday, but I thought I would share with you the evolving backdrop for the dessert buffet. My party has a Goth theme this year. I was thinking I would take sheets of newspaper with spray painted skulls on it for behind the dessert table. As I started decorating other objects using the bag of crows I had bought…I came up with a whole new concept. I ventured to the woods to find a few branches (I found very creepy looking ones) to spray paint black. After they dried I attached them to the newspaper board with Gorilla Glue and let it dry overnight. The next day I used the newspaper I sprayed the branches on for an additional 3D effect. I crinkled the paper and attached it with tacky glue to the background. The crows had wire on their feet making it easy to attach them to the branches.
It became sculptural – and I love it! I added a branch to the hurricane candle and added a crow there as well as on the birdcage.
