Today’s post is the holy grail of lazy decorating: cheap, easy, & quick. You can easily involve your children in this and it won’t take up more than an afternoon.
First up, this easy banner. All you need is construction paper, scissors, ribbon, paint, & paper clips. You can use staples or sticky tack too, whatever is more convenient in your house.
Easy, right? By using paperclips, you can recycle the triangles when Halloween is over and save the ribbon to use next year.
Do you have a yard full of overgrown trees? Asking for a friend
myself. Chop a few of them down and make a super simple Halloween tree! All you need is spider webbing, felt, star stickers, and a bit of ribbon.
Tie the ribbons in random branches, but on your webbing, and stick on your ghosts and stars. You can put whatever Halloween things you and your kids like on your tree. If you cut your shapes out of felt, they will stick to the spider webbing by themselves.
As my regular readers know, I’m a big fan of using what you already have whenever possible. Needless to say, my pumpkins are getting put to good use.
All in all, these decorations cost me $4. $3 for the ribbon, and $1 for the spider web stuff. Everything else I already had kicking around the house.
Happy Halloween friends!
