Goblins, Ghosts, Vampires and Giant Spiders – Oh it must be Halloween time!
We have fantastic orange doors that scream to be decorated for Halloween. I needed something crafty I could do during nap time and I wanted something that didn’t cost a lot. Yeah, I could have gone out and bought some decorations, but I really wanted to make something and be creative.
The spider web was an easy and creative way to decorate our door for Halloween, I could have put in the window and it would have been just a cute. I created this decoration in a few hours while the kids took their afternoon nap. Those few hours included gathering my supplies, figuring out what I was going to cut out via inspiration from the internet and then executing my idea.
- Black Tag Board
- Exacto Knife
- Cutting Mat
- You’re Imagination!
Step 1. Draw out your design to be cut out. Don’t limit yourself to a spider web. It could be as easy as the outline of a ghost, witch or haunted house. If you are using an Exacto knife, make sure you have a surface below your tag board that can be cut/scratched up, Exacto knives are very sharp and will leave gouges.
Step 2. Cut out your design. Don’t forget, it is a Halloween decoration; it doesn’t need to be perfect, the less perfect, the more SPOOKY!
Step 3. Hang it in your storm door or window and enjoy!
