Hence, several of my Fall decor ideas came from various inspiration on Pinterest.
First, my spider candy bowl creation. I have seen several crafters create various serving bowl creation by stacking simple bowls, plates, cups, etc. I started getting my Halloween decor out and had an "AH HA" moment. Spending only $1 on this project: 1) a candy bowl (webbed with a spider - I believe I got at Target a couple years ago), a margarita glass from a friend, and spiders/webs from Dollar Store. 2) Hot glue the candy bowl to the bottom of margarita glass. Let dry. 3) Place spiders and webs under glass. 4) Add Candy. And Ta-Da.

2)d) Take white Sharpie Paint marker and create spider webs onto black pumpkin.

3) Stack pumpkins using chopsticks. Use books for altered heights. Or just place them around the house. FUN!! And non-themed pumpkins can last through the Fall season.
Finally, I attempted to use Mirror Glass Spray Paint to create a pumpkin. The intent was to spray 2 bowls from Dollar Store, glue together, and create a pumpkin shape. Like any project, there is some trial and error. The hot glue did not hold the glass bowl well, plus I couldn't get the same look that was posted as an example. Heidi Milton utilized the following method which would resolve my errors: DIY Mirrored Pumpkin
