Halloween Fun: Decorate and Create Memories!
Halloween comes at a fabulous time of year. For most trick or treaters, the hot days and nights of summer have given way to cooler temperatures. Some people may be spending more time outdoors now than they did through the hotter days of summer. And with that, they may be getting creative in their Halloween decorating schemes.
Some outdoor Halloween decorations may be rather simple, such as using only pumpkins to adorn the base of a tree or to line the porch steps.
But other people go all out; for instance, some may even include this monster-sized spider decoration.
Indoor Halloween Decorations
Indoor Halloween decorations can be lots of fun add a spooky appeal to your home. While you can purchase ready-made decorations you can also create your own. For example, you can make cute ghosts that can be scattered around the interior of your home. All you need is a box of white tissues, cotton balls, yarn and a black marker.
Just place a cotton ball in the center of an unfolded tissue. Then wrap the tissue around the cotton ball and tie a piece of yarn to hold it in place. Use the marker to create eyes and other facial features. These little ghosts can be used to create garland or they can be added to plants or centerpieces. They’re quick and easy to make, which makes them a perfect craft project for kids.
Other simple to make Halloween decorations include using strips of orange paper to create 3-D pumpkins. Just cut the strips in even lengths, then position them on top of each other in a circular fashion. Use a stapler to attach them at the center. Then stack the pieces at the other end and staple those. The result is a terrific pumpkin that you can add eyes, a nose and a mouth to. Depending on the stock of paper you use and how close together you place the strips, your pumpkin could be used to hold candy or plastic Halloween treats.
Whether you prefer simple or you decide to go elaborate with your decorations, the most important thing is to have fun! Visit this Package From Santa blog regularly to keep up with great ideas for year round fun!
