Creepy Halloween Centerpiece

Now is the time of year when the air turns chillier, the moon glows brighter, and the desire to scare the willies out of loved ones grows greater.


Make this shadowy centerpiece, and friends and family will quickly discover they aren't the only guests at the table.


  1. Step 1

    Arrange deep-hued fruits on a large platter around dark pillar candles; set platter on dining table over a gauzy fabric runner.

  2. Step 2

    Add insects of your choosing -- plastic ones only, please.
