Last minute Halloween ideas...

If you are looking for a last minute table topper or table cloth to set off your Halloween decorations, they are easy peasy to make!
The fabric store now has everything Halloween at sometimes more than 50% off, so just make a trip to the fabric shop and then if you want a square table topper just get 45 inches of the fabric (if your fabric is 45 inches wide) and then go to Target or some other place that sells the tinsel garland for Halloween and buy what you need to put around the edge of the fabric.

Just use pinking shears to cut around the edge of the fabric and then just use a zig-zag stitch and just stitch on top of the tinsel around the edge of your fabric.
I chose a cute sparkly spider fabric and found a black and green spider tinsel to add some bling to my table topper. Now if you do not sew you could probably use some double sided tape to hold it into place but it really is easy to just sew around the edges.
I like my eyeball lights here to watch over all who enters.

I then also found these cute eyeball, bouncy balls at Target and added some stretchy spiders!

I was going to put this big web outside but the weather turned up cold and nasty so I draped it across my baker's rack in my dining room and I think it looks great!
These stretchy spiders and bouncy eyeballs have been a big hit with my grandson's over the weekend, they have loved playing with the spiders and the balls. I didn't now spiders could find their way to so many places! Have a great week finishing up your Halloween decor!

How clever! The tinsel at the bottom really set everything off nicely. I can see the decorations as being big hits with the kids. I just can't bring myself to decorate with spiders though. ;)

Thanks for linking to my party. It's fun to see what you link up each week.
