Gothic Candle Centerpiece

Never enough black and white.  Thank you for joining us today as we bring you another black and white Halloween decorating post. Today we would like to share with you our Gothic Candle Centerpiece. 

You just can't go wrong decorating with black and white, especially at Halloween and you can't get in too much trouble when you decorate using what you already have on hand.

Last season we came across this damaskish paper at the craft store and had plenty left over to use this season in our gothic centerpiece. We wrapped and taped it around our tall pillar candles.

We used ribbon, silky thread and sequence ribbon to tie around the paper wrapper candles.

Next we pulled out some of last Halloweens items and used them for the finishing touches on the candles. This lovely woman we found at The Graphics Fairy and framed her in a craft store frame.

A sweet silver spider makes his home on a candle as well.

Got to have a skull to finish things off with.

A black crow seems to like it among the candles and white pumpkin.

We used flame less candles here. Be careful if you wrap real ones.

Does your Halloween decorating plan include a little Gothic touch? 
Be inspired, get creative!

Treasures of wickedness profit nothing,
But righteousness delivers from death.
Proverbs 10:2

  1. Great tip on using items you already have - just dressing/spooking them up a bit!

  2. Creepy. Very creepy. My weekly linky party--One Creative Weekend--has gone spooky this week in honor of my thirteenth party. If you haven’t already, I hope you’ll visit "One Creative Weekend" on (open every Fri-Wed) and link up this idea and anything else you’d like to share. (You can include non-Halloween posts as well, but feel free to link up as many Halloween-themed posts as you like.) There are two categories—one for Halloween and one for everything else.
