Halloween on the Cheap

Between the costumes and the candy that has money left to spend on their Halloween decorations.  I have some super inexpensive solutions I think you’re going to love.

How about some spooky ghosts? Cut cheese cloth into several squares and put them aside.  Then, blow up some small balloons and set them in paper cups to make your ghost forms.

Make some homemade fabric stiffener by mixing a half a cup of white glue and a half a cup of water in a shallow bowl.  Dip your cheesecloth in and lay it over the balloons, then leave it till it dries. Then gently peel them off of the balloons.

Hang your ghosts with some fishing line or light
Colored thread and you’ve got great custom ghosts for pennies.

Cheese cloth can also be draped or wrapped onto wreaths and other décor as creepy fabric.

Use newspaper as Halloween décor, it’s the perfect color.  Replace your framed pictures with newspaper and layer some black silhouette cut outs onto the newspaper so it becomes a backdrop for spooky artwork.

You could also use paints and glitter to add art directly to the paper.

Make a garland from newspaper.  Layer sections of newspaper over a string or ribbon and secure it with some glue or staples, then use your scissors to
Cut fringe into the paper, the more layers of paper, the fuller the fringe.

A few easy Halloween decorations for you to try, I’m Mrs. Fixit and it’s just that simple.
