Want to throw a different Halloween party this year? Host a Witch’s night out at a Witch’s Soiree. It’s sure to be the highlight of the season. Download the banner below.
I wanted the Witch’s Soiree to have an eerie sophistication, and the easiest way to accomplish that was to keep the color palette a striking black and white.
I also wanted to add candles to set the mood. And, while I considered collecting a couple dozen candle stick holders, I was afraid it would compete with the color palette as well as run the risk of them getting knocked each over too easily. Instead I created my own candle table runner which proved to be easier and a lot less expensive to construct.
To Create a Candle Table Runner You Will Need:
a couple dozen candles of different heights and types
white cardboard piece the size you want your table runner to be (I ended up piecing together two cake boards)
hot glue gun
black net runner (I picked up this one at the dollar store)
First, use a hot glue gun and, one at a time, glue the candles onto the white cardboard cake board. Once you have all the candles glued to the board, drape the black net over the top. One by one, carefully help the net settle around the candle. Be careful not to let the candles burn low enough that they could catch the net on fire.
