Halloween is creeping toward us, and I am FUH-REAKING out because I haven’t started on my projects yet. Yes, I have 102 days left as of the date of this post, but I have A LOT planned this year.
I’ll be posting more-involved DIY projects throughout the Halloween season, but since we have a little over 100 days until the big day, I thought I’d just post a quick little project I whipped up a few Halloweens back.
Three Septembers ago (a Friday the 13th actually), we moved from an apartment into a small house. Moving is a lot of work, so I didn’t have a lot of time to prepare for Halloween that year. I set out my cemetery and hung up some ghosts and goblins. I really wanted to do more, but I just didn’t have a lot of time (or money – buying a house is expensive). I was proud of my little cemetery, but I thought my house was missing something.
We have a big double window by our front door, so I decided to dress it up a bit. BUT…I didn’t want to spend any money. Luckily for me, I’ve got a creative mind. I had some black, easy-peel contact paper – the kind that doesn’t stick too much. I cut out some eyes and teeth, stuck them to the window, and – VOILA! – window monster.
Ain’t it fun? It took hardly any time at all, but it added a bunch of Halloween flava. Kids loved it, and with it backlit from behind with a low lamp, it showed up great.
What kinds of fun projects do you foresee for your Halloween festivities? You better start planning now! I know I am.
