Here is my Halloween porch, chock full of fun and CHEAP decor ideas.
I have a few pieces I keep from year to year, like the pumpkin lights
and the painted signs, but most of my
Halloween look is made out of old VCR tapes and trash bags.
Dollar Store, here I come!
The big fat orange pumpkins are Halloween trash bags filled with crumpled newspaper. So easy to do and so easy to store. But they aren't the real surprise here.
These spooky flyaway torn "curtains" are the most fun part of this decor,
and I made them from black trash bags cut to open all the seams
then cut in strips for creepy flyaway curtains.
The Welding Man set up a simple archway with scrap lumber
and I stapled lots of black plastic strips all over.
My grandkids made the sign out of twigs and an old board.
I LOVE how they look when the wind blows!
Then we took a couple of old VCR tapes and stripped them loose from their cases so we could do THIS!
You'll need at least one more person to make this giant web
and the results are so worth it!
We did the horizontal stringers first then wrapped
the vertical stringers last.
We wrapped each joint with black electrical tape and
stood back for the finishing touch.
Every giant spider web needs a giant spider.
We filled two black trash bags with more crumpled newspaper then wired them
in place on our garden arch. We attached long pieces of strong wire
and bent them into leg shapes then wrapped them with strips
of black plastic and electrical tape.
The eyes and fangs are red felt.
On the left side of the photo you can see the start of another huge spider web.
We had fun doing this and it was so easy and
On another post I'll show how I made the easy and cheap but
still creepy and floaty black bats.
I'll link it up right here.....
