By this time last year I was knee deep in Halloween crafting and decorating. Maybe that's a bit early to start decorating for most people, but then again, maybe not. Halloween has gotten pretty popular over the last few years, thanks in no small part to Martha Stewart - and that's totally a good thing! (See what I did there?) Living in an apartment does limit your options though. I can't wait until I'm in an actual house with a yard again. There are just so many fun decorations you can do outside for Halloween, like pumpkin patches, spooky scarecrows and creepy cemeteries. For now though, I'm stuck in a boring apartment building.
Was I gonna let that stop me from making a graveyard though? Hellz no! I just had to improvise. So I thought, where in my tiny apartment could I stick some tombstones and creepy crawlies? Which corner hardly ever gets used? Why, the dining room of course! And that's how the Tabletop Cemetery was born. I found a mini "graveyard kit" at Wal-Mart for about $15 that had a bunch of awesome stuff in it - like tombstones, a skull and bones, bats, rats, and spiders. Then I added realistic crows, some bloodshot eyeballs and even a few mummy heads to it - 'cause, you know, mummy heads hang out in all the cool cemeteries.
