I started with a black tablecloth. This is a plastic one that I picked up at Walmart for $1. It is a little thicker than the ones you get at the dollar store. I picked up these spider wall decorations at the dollar store, and I used them as placemats.
Next, I took the cylinders from my Dining room table and removed the burlap that is usually around them. I used my glue gun to secure the end of the black ribbon on top of the glass, then wrapped it around until I got to the bottom. I secured the bottom with the glue gun also. For the purple ribbon on top of the black, I got a spool of very inexpensive Halloween ribbon at the dollar store. This is not very good quality, so it is perfect for this craft. All I did with that was wrap it around the middle of the cylinder and tie a knot in the middle.
One important note, I always use flameless candles on the table so I don’t have to worry about the candle being directly under the branches. Also because there will be kids around reaching for candy and spiders, the flameless candles are a much better choice.
This is a Dryer Vent Pumpkin that I made last year. It is really easy and durable. It has been in my attic for a year and came out looking perfect this year.
The last thing I did was take a spool of ribbon from my local craft store and wind it around everything on the table. I used ribbon that you can scrunch small, or pull it long, its great. The craft store has it in lots of colors. With some spider baskets from the dollar store and one older candy dish with a skeleton that I’ve had for years, the table is finished. I filled the baskets with pumpkin cookies and clementines, but feel free to fill them with lots of candy.
