While Lendiva can assist with a payday loan online, everyday household items can help you inexpensively transform your home into a Transylvanian setting this Halloween.
Decorating your front yard with floating hands can be done without spending an arm and a leg. Just fill clear plastic gloves with tissue paper and hang them from trees or place them in bushes, with fingers slightly poking out, to frighten trick-or-treaters.
They say “clothes make the man,” and in the case of creating Halloween bodies this is true! Take an old pair of pants and long-sleeved shirt you’re ready to get rid of, and stuff it with leaves from the yard or old newspapers. If you’re making a scarecrow, draw a face on a paper shopping bag, fill it with more leaves or newspapers, and affix it to the collar of your old shirt. Then, hang or prop your scarecrow up on your porch unless you’re after a scarier scenario.
If so, keep the body headless and arrange on your porch or in your yard. Add red paint for an even more macabre mood.Creating a ghost-lit walkway with plastic milk jugs is another cost-effective way to set the scene. Once they are washed out, cut a small hole in the bottom of each jug. Also use the scissors to cut large and small circles out of black construction paper. These circles can be pasted onto the jug so the small ones look like eyes and the large one resembles the mouth of a ghost. Line the jugs along your walkway (with the handle facing the back) and place artificial candles inside for a gloomy glow!
To be the ultimate host with the mostest ghosts, hang beachballs from your house with white sheets draped over them. Sheets can also be used to decorate the interior of your home. Simply drape them over your furniture. In addition to giving your house a haunted look, it will keep your sofa safe from sticky candied fingers and caramel apple crumbs.
Cobwebs add to the ambiance whether inside or outside. Creating them is an easy and affordable project since all you need is a large supply of cotton balls and scissors. Stretch each of the cotton balls as far as you can and tie them onto fences and gates or onto bookshelves, mirrors and more.
You can also adorn your interior with laboratory specimen jars. Once filled with tomato sauce, salad dressing, jelly and jam, these old jars now can be filled with colored water, fake eyeballs, plastic spiders, or anything else that looks creepy. Line them up on the counter or place on shelves.
Some of you may own reusable decorations such as ceramic pumpkins, witches and more. After your initial purchase, they don’t cost any money or time to reuse every year. Extra savvy shopper will have bought these items after Halloween when seasonal decorations are discounted, sometimes to as much as 75 or 90% off the original price.
Any or all of these free or financially-keen decorations can add you your frightening festivities!
