Creating a Ghost Decoration

Gathering Materials

To create a ghost decoration, one will need a funnel, a bucket or planter, a Dollar Tree broom handle, a clear bowl, plain Christmas lights, a sheet or tablecloth, and some sparkly black vinyl.

Assembling the Base

The first step is to glue the funnel inside the bucket or planter using hot glue. A strong hold is necessary to ensure that the broom handle can be set in place. The broom handle should be glued to the top of the funnel using hot glue. To weigh down the planter and keep the ghost stable, some dirt or rocks should be added inside. A clear bowl should be glued to the top of the broomstick.

Adding Lights

Once the base is assembled, plain Christmas lights should be wrapped around the broom handle. To secure the lights in place, floral wire or strong tape should be used. After the lights are in place, a sheet or tablecloth can be draped over the top of the ghost.

Creating the Ghost’s Face

To give the ghost some character, a face can be added using sparkly black vinyl. Two oval shapes should be cut out and stuck onto the ghost. With the lights off, the ghost will look especially cute. This DIY project is easy and affordable, with most materials coming from Dollar Tree.

Making a Halloween Cauldron

Gathering Materials

To make a Halloween cauldron, one will need a cauldron and some sort of filler to take up space inside the cauldron. Styrofoam or plastic bags can be used as a filler. The filler should be glued upside down to the bottom of the cauldron. Clear ornaments are also needed. The hanger portion of the ornaments should be removed.

Assembling the Cauldron

The ornaments should be attached to the filler piece. They should be stacked in random places to achieve an overflowing bubble look. Larger ornaments can be used first, followed by smaller ones. A ribbon can be added to the cauldron, and fairy lights can be wrapped around the ornaments to make it look magical.

Adding Ornaments

To make a ghost decoration, a funnel should be glued inside a bucket or planter. A broom handle should be glued to the top of the funnel. Dirt, rocks or rice should be added to weigh down the planter. A bowl should be glued to the top of the broomstick. Christmas lights should be wrapped around the broom handle. A sheet or tablecloth can be draped over the top. Two oval shapes cut from sparkly black vinyl can be used as eyes.

Final Touches

To make a spider decoration, one will need black balloons and balloon glue. One balloon should be blown up all the way and another halfway. Balloon glue should be used to attach the balloons to both the countertop and to each other. Thirty-two more balloons should be blown up to about the size of a softball. They should be attached together using balloon glue and duct tape. Eyes can be drawn or painted on using a craft kit.

Creating a Balloon Spider

Gathering Materials

To create a balloon spider, you will need 35 black balloons, balloon glue, and some duct tape or other adhesive for extra reinforcement. Additionally, you will need a surface to attach the spider to, such as a countertop or table.

Assembling the Spider

Start by blowing up one balloon all the way and another halfway. Attach the smaller balloon to the larger one using balloon glue, making sure the smaller balloon is in the front. Then, blow up 32 more balloons to about the size of a softball. Attach the balloons together using balloon glue, creating eight legs with four balloons on each leg. Add some extra balloons to the back legs to give the spider depth.

Creating the Spider’s Legs

For extra reinforcement, use duct tape or other adhesive to ensure all of the balloons have a strong hold. Once the legs are attached, the spider should be able to stand on its own.

Adding the Spider’s Eyes

To add the finishing touch, attach some eyes to the spider using balloon glue or another adhesive.

Overall, creating a balloon spider is a fun and easy Halloween decoration that can be completed in about an hour. It’s a great addition to any Halloween party or as a spooky decoration for your home.

Making Halloween Treat Jars

Gathering Materials

To make Halloween treat jars, one will need large jars and window clings. The window clings used in this project are available at Dollar Tree and stick to glass without any glue or adhesive. However, if one wants a more permanent hold, glue can be added. The jars used in this project were found at Dollar Tree and are a great deal for a dollar and 25 cents.

Decorating Jars

The window clings can be added to the jars to give them a spooky look. The window clings used in this project were added to the jars without any glue or adhesive. Once the window clings are in place, the jars can be filled with candy. The candy used in this project was Mr. Goodbars and Reese’s, but one can use their favorite candy.

Filling Jars with Candy

When making treat jars, it is important to think about the candy that one would most like to receive. In this project, Mr. Goodbars and Reese’s were used. Once the jars are filled with candy, they are ready to be given as gifts. The finished treat jars can be seen in the video.

Stacked Pumpkins

The stacked pumpkin decoration is a popular and easy DIY Halloween decoration. To create this decoration, one will need three pumpkins of varying sizes, some paint in the desired colors, and some glue. The pumpkins can be found at any local craft store or pumpkin patch.

First, paint each pumpkin in the desired color and let them dry completely. Once the paint is dry, stack the pumpkins on top of each other, making sure that the largest pumpkin is at the bottom and the smallest one is at the top.

Next, glue the pumpkins together, making sure that they are secure. Once the glue is dry, add some finishing touches such as a bow or some leaves to complete the look.

The stacked pumpkin decoration is a versatile decoration that can be used both inside and outside the home. It is a great way to add a festive touch to any Halloween decor.
