DIY Spooky Spider Halloween Display Trays

For Halloween decor, I’ve mentioned before that I have a thing for “spooky” creatures like spiders and bats! And, I have a great little Martha Stewart spider stencil that I knew would be great for a Halloween project. The issue was just deciding what to put it on. But, then, on a trip to Cost Plus World Market, I found some silver chargers that I knew would work great for Halloween decor. At only $2.99, they’re perfect for all kinds of little DIY decorating projects! The process & supplies could not be simpler. Once you have the chargers (or any other trays, plates, etc. that you’d like to use), all you need is some black acrylic paint, a spider stencil, and a paint brush or foam pouncer. With the stenciling, you could go simple or completely covered, in a pattern or completely random. I think I did a little of both! 😉 Once the paint is dry, then just decide how you’d like to use the chargers to decorate. They work great as display trays for creepy items (like skulls or perhaps some large spiders) or candles. Or, you can just prop them up as sort of like spider artwork! Here’s how I used mine: All the glassware is from World Market also! They had so many great Halloween & fall related items! Like the pumpkin dishes–how cute are they?! I had such a hard time deciding on what to get as there is always so much fantastic stuff to choose from! Ultimately though, I decided on the apothecary jars, cute pumpkin dishes, and a large vase–all the glassware you see in the “mantle” shot. I’ve been wanting some apothecary jars for such a long time and just loved these! They are going to be perfect for all kinds of upcoming holiday decorating!
