This is quite involved for outdoor Halloween decorations. Black foam creates the background. After the background has been cut, cut foam boards into irregular board shapes. Since they don’t look like wood, a wood grain tool is used once the foam has been painted gray. It has to be done when the paint is wet. Then arrange them on the background as you like. For cartoony zombie arms, use store bought skeleton arms and paint them a bright, neon green. Painting the ends that will connect to the foam background black will help give the impression that they really are coming out of the shadows. Eyeballs are created using ping pong balls cut in half and neon green paint pens. To hang it up, add picture hanging wire on the top and a suction cup hook on the window.
Create giant gothic lanterns using nothing more than our instructions, clip-art designs, and simple supplies. First, print out all of the following templates: this snake lantern, another spooky snake option, and the frog lantern as well. To begin, cut out one of the lantern templates, and trace it four times, side by side, on black paper. Use a bone folder to crease the areas where the sides meet before cutting it out. Print four copies of your chosen design onto vellum using a laser printer, and then cut each piece just larger than the frame's windows. Tape the vellum into a frame, and form into a lamp shape before taping the edges. To finish, cut a 26-inch length of wire and twist a loop in the middle of it; poke the wire ends through the paper to make two holes at the edge of the lantern. Use pliers to roll ends of wire to secure; and then use monofilament to hang two battery-operated votive candles, taped end to end, inside the lantern. Finally, use twine and a removable advise hanger to suspend the lantern in your chosen space.
Step 1: Purchase an indoor/outdoor needle-punch carpet. To turn it into a circle: Mark the rug's center point with a Prismacolor white-colored pencil. Measure and mark the distance from that point to a spot about half an inch from the rug's edge. Cut a piece of string to that length. Tie one end of the string to the pencil and secure the other end of the string to the rug's center point with a tack. Pull the string taut and draw a large circle onto the rug; remove the string. Cut out the circle, just inside the white pencil mark, with sharp scissors.
The grimmer, the better! Nothing screams "Halloween" quite like scary creatures dangling from tree limbs and rafters, or animated Halloween decor poised to startle trick-or-treaters and party guests. Strategically placed, motion sensor animated props can quickly an ordinary haunted house or graveyard scene into something truly extraordinary, worthy of comments, admiration, and imitation.
