A giant spider that dangles overhead requires very little legwork. To begin, use wire cutters to cut eight 26-inches pieces of wire, and then cover the length of one wire with a piece of double-sided tape. Unroll your streamers onto tape and cut them to the proper length; turn the wire over and repeat the process on the other side. Then, create a half-inch fringe on the sides of the streamers using fringe scissors—repeat the process on the other legs as well. Finally, open up a flutter ball and poke your top end of each leg into the ball, securing with tape. Suspend the ball from the ceiling using filament wire.
Protect your work surface from paint using newspaper or a drop sheet. Place the tin container on the newspaper with the opening facing down. Following the instructions provided on the paint can, apply the orange spray paint to the outside of the tin container. Repeat as needed until you achieve the desired coverage (in our case, 5-6 coats of spray paint were needed for full coverage). Leave it to dry fully before moving on to the next steps.

It's that time of year: Halloween decorations are going up all over the neighborhood, and no self-respecting homeowner wants to be outdone! Skeleton decorations are planted in garden plots, light-up zombie graveyard decorations are staked into the ground, and Halloween tombstone decorations are carefully arranged along walkways to greet the party guests.

To eerily embrace the Halloween season, one must also embrace its history. The Celtic folklore believed the souls of the dead come back to life and walk among the living on Halloween night.  To make these “souls” feel right at home, many get into the Halloween spirit by decorating their homes and yards with tombstones, skeletons, ghosts and grim reapers. 


Download this bat stencil, then trace the shape onto a piece of black craft paper and cut out the bat with scissors. Then, place the stencil back atop each critter you create and use a bone folder to make creases along the dotted lines on the stencil. Fold the creases opposite ways on each wing to make the wings 3D. Attach each bat to a long piece of string with tiny black clothespins.

If crepe paper, duct tape, and paper plates have one thing in common, it’s that they can create wonderful Halloween front door decors. Pick up some crepe paper in any color that contrasts your door and hang strips from the top of the door. The paper plates become the eyes when black circles are drawn on. Duct tape them on the door. Then use the duct tape to create eye brows and a mouth. Style it however you want. Kids across the neighborhood will enjoy looking at your creepy monster, and it’ll be a hoot to create if your own kids help. Even if you don’t have kids, this monster gives the creator one great time while putting it up.
It did the job of being spooky in my Halloween graveyard...I have to say it was probably my favorite "ground breaker". The stakes are pretty flimsy, but if you poke a hole first in hard ground, then put the stakes in, they work well enough. I may end up purchasing another one for next year. A word of caution though...it is "weather proof" as long as you don't touch it when it's wet from rain or dew. If you do try to dry it off, the white and black "highlight paint" will rub off. Rinse it off from being in the ground, just don't "wash" it.

While blow up ghosts and plastic skeletons dressed up can cost a lot, taking a simple plastic skeleton can create such an interesting effect. Cool Halloween decorations follow plastic skeletons everywhere. An old white dress can be purchased from a thrift shop or found in your closet. White tulle or mesh can be purchased as well for a fuller look. If the dress is too long for the skeleton, use leftover fabric to create a veil. A spooky Specter bride is preceded by pumpkins as she walks down the aisle – which is your front porch and steps in this case. It doesn’t even have to be a bride. It could simply be a ghost!
Want to make your outdoor Halloween decorations extra creepy for all those horror fans out there? We can’t think of anything that’ll seep into people’s nightmares quite as well as a nod to good ol’ Freddy Krueger. It’s probably a good thing that little kiddos don’t know who this hand belongs to. But the folks who have seen all the movies will know that they ought to fear the glove inflatable Freddy glove that is emerging from the ground. Cause sometimes you’ve just got to bring the fright back to those full-grown folks as well!
Using black paper or fabric, bats can be traced and cut out to decorate your front door. They can be put on the front door via tape or any other method that you like. A bat template can be found for free on a lot of different websites. Spiders can be created with Styrofoam balls. These are spray painted black. Black pipe cleaners are used as legs, and voila! These Halloween door decorations have a life of their own, and boy do they look the part. For something a little more cartoony, a different color can be used – which also creates an intense look depending on the colors used.
