Outdoor Halloween Table-DIY Decoupage Chargers

Reposted for fun!

Outdoor tablesetting on the back patio for a nice change. Above is a thrifty $2.00 find, I love candle holders on the porch and patio. Below is a small table chandelier I also found at the same thrift store for $1.99.


The pumpkin plates are unbreakable, which I love. Below them are black chargers that I made from those metal trays that you find in abundance at thrift stores with dumb scenes on them. I spray painted them and then decoupaged the center of them with scrapbook paper. They make great chargers, I just wipe them off since they aren't directly eaten on!





I planted this candy corn last season...it has really grown tall.



Below is a wooden napkin holder that I also decoupaged....I have bought quite a bit of Modge Podge this season.






Candy corn is a great vegetable in the food pyramid you know!


Free Trick or Tree tag @ Urban Debris...






Today I joined along with these wonderful blogs!

Unbreakable pumpkin plates. Now I could use those! I looked in my fall stash in the garage for my Halloween decorations, and so many were broken! This is so, so cute!

I am loving this---oh and I need that crow. The chandelier is awesome. Hey--I can't remember how to decopage--that was one great idea.But tell me, how you decopage---I can't remember what you use!
Come to my spindle cottage blog to answer me if you have time! (I have many blogs but that is my house one)

I've always believed candy corn to be a vegetable. Love the chargers you created--no one will have the same ones! The little jack-o-lantern candles are very sweet, too!
