My son’s 3rd-grade teacher did this in her classroom so all the students got to lend a helping hand. They all drew their bats, ever so carefully and cut them out with their safety scissors. The teacher fastened them to the wall in a beautiful flying flock formation with some double-sided tape, single-sided works as well just make sure and do a neat loop on the back of the bat.
7. Halloween Yarn Pumpkin Garland
If its Halloween or Thanksgiving this DIY pumpkin garland craft project is cheap, easy and fabulous. I had plenty of orange yarn left from a University Of Texas sweater I made for my son, so started this project after breakfast and had it strung around the room by lunchtime. There was hardly any cutting involved and it looked great for all my holiday needs. We plan to leave these beauties up until Christmas.
I saw this idea for DIY Halloween candlesticks on Pinterest and I knew they were perfect for the mini haunted house I made in my dining room. I got some mini plastic skulls from Michael’s craft store and used some terracotta plant saucers as stabilizing pedestals at each end. I glued all of them together and used some grey metal colored spray paint I had from painting the railing on my new deck and it gave them a very rich polished look. I arranged them on what I called Dracula’s dining table with some other Halloween decorations and lovely treats that thrilled and chilled my guests, all for under the ten dollar mark.
I needed some cheap Halloween party favors and I had all these glow sticks left over from the Fourth Of July I wanted to use. I shredded a brown paper bag and glued the little bunches at the bottom of each stick, then tied a little Halloween greeting to them. The kids at the party were so happy to get these and could not put them down, best part they were free so I had enough funds left to buy pizza for everyone.
I had an Easter wreath that had been sitting around for months. I love wreath making but wanted something super quick and easy to hang on the door for Halloween. I took all the flowers off and found my most Autumn looking artificial plants I had laying around. I spray painted the whole thing black and attached my Fall flowers very sparsely on the side. You can add skulls, candy or any other miniatures to this and it is guaranteed to look fabulous to greet your guests. One hundred percent of this project was free, the only thing spent was creativity and old-fashioned ingenuity.
