Trick or Treat!


The holidays are coming! In fact, Halloween is just around the corner Have you started jacking up your house for that frightful night? Let’s create an interchangeable hanging display that can be put together easily.

Suspend a collection of wooden blocks from extra-wide ribbons looped over a striking curtain rod and finial from the Robert Allen Ferraforte Collection. Robert Allen is inspired by historical iron castings, the styles ranging from classic to contemporary. The Ferraforte collection is influenced by traditional ironwork from around the world. After hanging the curtain rod, determined where the wood blocks should fall. Try staggered heights, as this creates a more organic look. Turn the blocks over face-down on a flat surface and attached a length of ribbon to the center of the top and bottom edges a staple gun (hot glue would work, too). The looped ribbon then slides onto the rod — and slides off easily again when you are ready for the next holiday. Tip: Choose shallow brackets so your rod sits relatively close to the wall — if the frames hang too far away, they may swing a bit instead of facing straight ahead.

To create the lettered blocks follow these simple directions:

*Cut blocks into squares (not too big or they will be heavy and unwieldy)
* Paint the blocks
*Mod-Podge scrap paper
* Distressed edges with sandpaper
* Apply vinyl letters
*Attach ribbon
*Hang on curtain rod

Hang the Finial Company curtain rod according to manufacturer’s directions. Now you have an arrangement to trade out every holiday! Use it for birthdays too – simply hang lettered blocks spelling out the birthday girl/boy’s name.
