But this year for the first time in 3 years I am having a party- perhaps even two. So I must pull out the dusty decorations, take stock, and check with all the creative haunters out there for the amazing things they have come up with in the duration. The first thing that lit the flames of inspiration were Martha Stewart's pantyhose covered pumpkins. That got me thinking - if you can cover a pumpkin why not something else? So into the lingerie drawer and voila - a pair of old spider web panty hose. Now I have always dreamed of spookier table lamps and even contemplated buying shade covers online. But why spend that money when you've got panty hose? So the thighs got pull over the shades and the lower legs covered the bases. I stuck a few spider on by just slipping their legs through the pantyhose and I have spooky lamps at no cost! cool!
So now I have spookified my lamps without permanently changing them at all. After Halloween, I will just take off the hose and pitch them and save this years pair of hose for next year. Or I might just buy a pair of queen size as they will probably fit the lamp shade better. Anyhow glad to be back as a haunter. Can't wait to catch up with the blogs I follow.
