True! –nervous –very, very dreadfully nervous I had been and am; but why will you say that I am mad? The disease had sharpened my senses –not destroyed –not dulled them. Above all was the sense of hearing acute. I heard all things in the heaven and in the earth. I heard many things in hell. How, then, am I mad? Hearken! and observe how healthily –how calmly I can tell you the whole story.
-Edgar Allen Poe, The Tell-Tale Heart
Three days until Halloween. THREE days, I say! And, you can’t enjoy the true nature of Halloween without Edgar Allen Poe. 🙂 I digress, so allow me to get back on track…
Peter-Paul (my DIY scarecrow) is stuck in the bushes outside with his pumpkin head laying crookedly to the left, the candy is hiding in the pantry (I can’t let my Little Goblins find it!), kiddos have their costumes ready, and my kitchen/dining table is decorated to the ‘nth’ degree with splashes of orange, black, lime green, and amethyst purple. Let’s not forget the crochet spider web table cover I made a few months ago (click here for the Red Heart pattern), which is why I’m typing up this brief blog.
Basically, the table cover looks absolutely fabulous! I added a small, round, black table cloth I purchased a my local Dollar Tree years ago underneath the table cover to give a nice contrast. Add some sparkle, a few owls, a mummy, pumpkin, and bow, and you’re done! Don’t be afraid to play around with different heights of your decor. It only adds more depth and interest. I’d definitely recommend this crochet pattern to everyone who loves Halloween and wants a conversation piece in their home for the month of October.
Tip: make your spider web table cover before the year is over so you don’t sit around twiddling your thumbs, waiting for Halloween 2016!
So my Friends, I hope my photos have inspired you to take some time to sit down and crochet a bit, and get ready for next year’s Halloween. I wish you all a very safe and oh-so spooooooky Halloween!
