Started my diys for Halloween this year. Can’t find too many pictures of scary ALICE in wonderland. Have been watching Tim Burton version and I love it the twisted dark trees, the dirty checkered board game. Here are some props in progress. Trying to be creative working with dollar tree items keeping on budget also because I usually throw everything away when Halloween is over. If you have ideas that I can use dollar tree items I would really appreciate! I’m trying to work on crating the rabbit hole. Found some cool ideas on line. Haven’t start the paint yet.

ooooh, really good theme.

So happy I get to point you to Rania's Haunted Garden (she's a member here but I think hasn't been active for a while). She is a professional event/party/prop designer and is crazy amazing.

^her main event for many years (with lots of bits that work for an Alice theme)

^and then she actually DID a dark Wonderland theme!


Currently Saki.Girl, one of our talented moderators has been working on a Mad Hatter themed party, so here's her planning/props post to get you some ideas/leads as well:

Now I'm working on my soldier. Kind hard... he is so flat. I’m not even close to the artist on this forum. I’m trying to work with my skills and budget. Gave him dimension following saki.girl idea by adding a skull. He will be outside. I covered him with plastic tablecloth. Not loving it. I’m making some hands now.

The "Alice's Nightmare in Wonderland" adult coloring books might be useful for inspiration as well:
