Embellished Witches' Hat

I am itching to get my Halloween decorations up, but I'm trying to wait another week so my neighbors don't think I'm crazy.  I found a way to soothe the itch by adding some Halloween touches to my tearoom!
Yesterday, I popped into the dollar store and bought the black netting which I'm using as a small tablecloth.  I also picked up a few black crows to scatter about.
The witches' hat I got at Michael's over the weekend.  It was just a plain craft color so I gave it a few coats of black paint.  I added some tea-stained orange and black seam binding above the brim.  The creepy lady, poison label and banner are from The Graphics Fairy.  For the banner, I typed up Happy Halloween in word and then just played around with it until it fit into the banner.
Not sure if you can see the spider ring at the top of the hat.  One of my little guys added that!

In a few weeks, my quaint, little, girly tearoom will look like a haunted house!
