More Halloween Ideas

Fall Home Decór

Autumn Chandelier Wreath

Carve out the tops of 6 mini pumpkins and place tealight candles inside the pumpkins. Lay a simple grapevine wreath flat on a table, wire the mini pumpkins to the wreath and insert stems of fallen leaves and berries in between the pumpkins.  Keeping the wreath flat, attach 3 lengths of small chain to hang the “Chandelier” and join the three chains at the top with an “S” hook.  Suspend from a porch ceiling or over an indoor table for a rustic, autumn ambiance.
