Sometimes, the best ideas are the one that cost lest and involve a little more creativity. This was the case with my flea market find below. A twig hearth broom had the right look for Halloween, but it was a little plain by itself. Some black crows I found at a floral store transformed the plain broom into a witchy piece for Halloween.
The birds look as if they are ready to take flight and scare anyone entering the front door.

Candy can also serve as both treat and decor. This jar is filled with a mix of traditional and Indian candy corn. The colors are so bright and cheerful on a kitchen bar or table.
