eerie enhancements

Handcrafted cobwebs add ominous overtones to Halloween arrangements.

Whatever their composition, spider webs are sure to add creepy charm to any floral creation, and the technique for constructing them is quick and easy and allows webs to be made in advance of the spooky celebration. Create them in multiples, so you can be ready to add some frightful fun to October arrangements as needed.
