Turn Ordinary Containers into Halloween Decorations

Vases and birdcages transform into Halloween decor with a little spray paint and a lot of innovation.

What You'll Need:
  • Assorted plastic and glass items (such as vases, water pitchers, lidded candy dishes, candlesticks, plates, cauldrons, plant holders, and decorative birdcages)
  • Matte black spray paint
  • 5-minute epoxy (optional)
How to Make It:

Note: Do not spray-paint any surfaces that will come in direct contact with your party food.

Spray-paint all items black, omitting areas such as the interiors of serving cauldrons and the tops of serving plates. Use the vases, water pitchers, and lidded candy dishes for decorative urns. For serving pieces, glue candlesticks to the bottom of plates, and then glue a cauldron or a serving plate on top. Set a cauldron in a plant holder. Line the bottom of a birdcage and use it for a serving piece (see picture of buffet).
