This festive tent set up is revving up our excitement for the Boo Crew Halloween party we have planned in just a few weeks. Several of these pieces will be sprinkled into that party. In the mean time, check out how adorable they came out and how we have transformed some basic Halloween decor into something spooktacular!
We hit up the dollar store for these plastic skeletons and spiders. We also snagged some styrofoam headstones but I will be honest, they shriveled up after attempting to spray paint them. Ultimately we got new ones from Walmart (4 for about $7 versus 4 for $4 – so not too bad) and they held up so much better!
With a few cans of colorful spray paint these blah headstones, skeletons, spiders and some dollar store plastic cups were transformed in just a few minutes. Voila! You can create a brand new custom look if you simply remove the base of the plastic cup and spray paint them a fun color! I went with black in this case because I plan to tie hot pink name tags around the stem of the glasses for each boo crew guest.
Between now and the party, I will be plotting what to draw on my coffee bar chalkboard, Hendrix surely will continue to play hide and seek in the tent, and these little bits of decor will remain out for everyone’s enjoyment. Stay tuned for more details coming in the blog post after the party! Oh, and be sure to check out my “Let’s chalk it up” blog post for chalk art inspo.
