      Any Reasonable Halloween Decorations??

                       I AM SO Very Frugal!

                              Yes I AM!!!!

   The Most that I do is to get orange paper and do multiple cutouts of Pumpkins and tape them to the windows.  I really enjoy the different designs the lights make when they come through the eyes, nose and mouths....

    PLEASE give me some other designs... I AM sure they are getting bored with the same old, same old!

                     Thank you so VERY Much!

 Monster Footprints

With a magic marker, draw a footprint in a big sponge. Cut out the footprint. Pour washable paint in an 1/8 inch aluminum pan. Press the sponge in the paint and sponge footsteps up your sidewalk to your front door for trick-or-treaters to follow, or around the side of your dark, spooky house. Flip the sponge upside down to stamp the other foot.

 PAPER MACHE PUMPKINS:


Blow up a large balloon to use as the mold. Apply the paper strips. When
completely dry, pop the balloon. Paint the paper mache item bright
orange. Let the orange paint dry, then use green and black paint to add
details like facial features and stems.

 TRASH BAG PUMPKINS, GHOSTS, AND SPIDERS:
One of the things that my kids love best about the Halloween season is
raking leaves into huge piles and then jumping into the leaves. They can
do this for hours (and I get the never-ending leaves cleaned up). When
they are done we stuff the leaves into giant, heavy-duty trash bags. We
have decorated black trash bags as spiders and white ones as ghost. The
filled bags serve as the body and then we just add features. We leave
these trash bag creatures on the front lawn as decorations.
Most grocery and hardware stores even sell orange trash bags with
pumpkin faces that can be stuffed with leaves.

This is the best place to find great inspiration and ideas on home made halloween crafts. http://www.halloweenforum.com/album.php?u=20959
Her name is Terra and everything is homemade, which means it is much cheaper, and way more personalized, then what you would get from a store. Just glide through her albums to see the ideas. Be sure to read through the tutorial at the bottom. Enjoy.

This is an easy project....you just reuse jars from pickles, mayo, taco sauce, etc..... paint them with acrylic paint and spray them with a gloss finish! Once they are done, stick a candle inside and light them up! They will look really cool and spooky sitting on your porch or tables on Halloween!

Here are a few of them that we made the other day.....

Here is a pic of them lit up....
