Welcome to Zoulah's Halloween Bash and to Metamorphasis Monday! This is Zoulah's first time linking to Metamorphasis Monday. Zoulah not only loves cooking in her Bewitchen Kitchen at Halloween, but she also loves to craft. Zoulah and her twin sister Beaulah, residing at Purple Chocolat Home are both hosting a Halloween Bash this Halloween.
Zoulah found this glass candlestick at the local thrift store for $2.00.
These wooden trays were $1.00 each. When Zoulah saw these, her witchie eyes started to hatch a Halloween craft.
1. Gather together an ugly candstick and an ugly wood tray.
2. Paint tray and candlestick with acrylic black paint, or your choice of paint color. Let paint dry.
3. Apply miniature Halloween signs or use a stipple sponge to make polka dots (see pedestal above). Wal-Mart sells a package of stipple brushes. Zoulah found the little signs in a package at Michael's Craft Store last year -- they have similar things this year. See the pedestal below.
4. For the pedestal with Halloween signs, Zoulah applied Modge Podge
5. Seal, if desire.
6. Let dry and glue, with a glue similar to E-6000, the tray to the candlestick.
6. Add a tulle bow and a little Halloween Jack-O-Lantern. Wal-Mart has these glittered Jack-O-Lanterns and other large confetti shapes for one dollar for a package. There are at least 20 pieces of Halloween confetti in each package.
Zoulah's Notes: Originally, Zoulah was going to make a double-tiered pedestal, but she didn't like the look with these trays. She only bought one candlestick and had to share the candlestick for these pictures and needs to find another one at the thrift store. Because of the Modge Podge and sealant, Zoulah wouldn't recommend serving food, like cookies on this tray. She feels that cupcakes, and candies, and cookies in little dishes would be fine. Zoulah also has a round glass clear cake plate that fits perfectly on the pedestals to protect the food.
Zoulah can't wait to serve some of her food from her Bewitchen Kitchen on these Halloween Pedestals!
