I am a firm believer in the idea that the slightest tweaks and touches can often make a substantial difference. Take, for instance, these three tall glass display hurricanes:
To add some flair during the Halloween season, I placed candles in each of the hurricanes and overlaid them with different novelty fishnet stockings. (Yes, even the one in the center is a type of stocking!)
To hold the stockings in place, I secured the top of each hurricane with double-sided tape. Then, as a finishing touch, I tied ribbons around the hurricanes, making sure to also apply ribbon around the rims (to obscure the double-sided tape). I chose to tie the ribbons in a different manner on the left and right hurricanes, to keep things visually interesting. Et voilà — this little design trick is quite a Halloween treat!
