Elvira, Mistress of the Dark

Calling all Halloween enthusiasts!  At Beistle, it’s never too early to start talking about Halloween.  In fact, we talk about it all year!

There’s only one Mistress of the Dark.  She is the ‘Queen of Halloween’ and has been featured in a number of movies and television shows.  She represents spookiness, creepiness and all things scary.  Elvira’s iconic look can be found on clothing, life-size stand-ups, collectables and even party supplies.

In 2018, Beistle introduced Elvira as a mini theme to coordinate with the rest of our Halloween decorations.   This collection consists of multiple Streamers, Centerpieces, Photo Fun Signs and a Peel ‘N Place.  To see these spooky, eerie decorations displayed, check out the images below:

For the background of the display, I used our smaller white Spider Webs, overlaid with a Giant Black Spider Web.  I’ll admit – when I first took these out of the packaging to use, I was a bit skeptical of how I was going to get this to look.  BUT, as I began pulling them apart to create a look that was more web-like, I withdrew my skepticism and it turned out looking awesome!

Check out the three Streamer options for this collection.  The top one is our Unpleasant Dreemz Streamer, the middle is the Elvira Pennant Streamer and on the bottom is the Elvira Queen of Halloween Streamer.  I love all of them, but I have a favorite…do you?

On the table, i’ve displayed the Centerpieces, a few pieces from the Photo Fun Signs and a few Halloween items not directly related to Elvira, but coordinate nicely.  The Elvira Bust Centerpiece is sure to be a hit! (See Below)

The Glittered Black Roses pair nicely with the overall Elvira look.  I laid them on the table, but you could also stand a single stem in a vase or group them together to create a bouquet.

Also, don’t overlook the Spider Web Tablecover!  This is a must-have for any Halloween related event.  It works great on the table, but it would also be really cool on the wall as a backdrop for photos!

Tissue Spider

How cool are these Black Tissue Spiders?  I had never actually seen one of these out of their packaging, but they are really, really neat!

If you thought the other Elvira decorations were cool…check this out.  The Elvira 3-D Macabre Mobile Centerpiece is absolutely amazing.  Really, i’m not just saying that.  The details in the car and the overall paper engineering that the artist came up with to get this look is extremely impressive.  The centerpiece comes flat and the customer simply follows the directions on the packaging to bend & fold the paper to create the car.  You then have the option to have Elvira sitting on the seat of the car or on the hood.  Love those cheetah print seats!

DIY projectLast, I wanted to tell you how I created the white, spider web banner that you see in the image below.  I simply took our Die-Cut Spider Web Pennant Banner, removed the ribbon, trimmed the top edge of each pennant, and linked the individual sections together at the corners.
