This cheap Halloween decoration will terrify your neighbors
Halloween is fast approaching, and what better way to celebrate the spooky season than by creating an unforgettable, spine-chilling ambiance around your house? If you’re looking for an affordable Halloween decoration that’ll leave your neighbors quaking in their boots, look no further! Let us introduce you to the ultimate cheap and terrifying Halloween decor element:
– White plastic drop cloths or trash bags
– Black permanent marker
– Large balloons or inflated plastic gloves
– Fishing line or transparent thread
– Optional: LED lights
1. Begin by cutting your white plastic drop cloths or trash bags into large squares, approximately 3 to 4 feet wide, depending on the size of your desired ghostly figures.
2. Inflate a large balloon or plastic glove for each ghost you wish to create. This will serve as the head of your ghostly figure.
3. Place the inflated balloon or glove in the center of a white plastic square. Gather the plastic around the balloon, creating a draped effect by pinching it just below the balloon or glove.
4. Use a piece of fishing line or transparent thread to tie off and secure the area just below the balloon to create a defined head for your ghost. Leave about 6 inches of line attached for hanging purposes.
5. Use your black permanent marker to draw eerie eyes and a gaping mouth on each “face” of your ghostly figures.
6. If desired, attach LED lights to the underside of each ghost’s head (near where you tied off with fishing line) using clear tape. This will give the appearance of illuminated and floating spirits at night.
7. Finally, use the excess fishing line from step 4 to hang your DIY Ghostly Figures from tree branches, porch awnings, or any other suitable locations around your home.
Prepare yourself for some terrified neighbors, as these cheap and easy DIY Ghostly Figures are bound to give everyone goosebumps this Halloween season! Have fun crafting, and remember, the spookier, the better!
