Halloween is just two weeks away, my friends. Is your home ready for trick-or-treaters and spooky festivities? If not, I have four quick and easy holiday crafts you can make in a snap.
The best part about this Halloween craft is that it only requires three — count ‘em — THREE materials, and you definitely have them in your home. All you need are black plastic trash bags, scissors and clear plastic tape to create these dramatic spider webs.
Add a chic touch to your front door with an easy-to-make fabric-covered wreath. We went with classic orange-and-white and black-and-white chevron patterns, but you can choose any fabric you like to cover your wreath form. For seasonal appeal, use baker’s twine and cut-out bats to add a spooky embellishment.
Using an online bat template, cut out approximately 50 paper bats (depending on the size of your space), and tape them to the wall in a flying flock. Eeek!
Using an old wooden board and pages from an old book, create a distressed trick-or-treat sign that’s perfect for a mantel or front porch display.
