DIY Spider Web  Halloween decor

 

It would make for a great Halloween decoration indeed and is something that works both indoors and outside. There are a couple of ways you can go on this one. You can either create that ultra-messy and intricately spooky look with a crazy web design or go for the more modern, clean and colorful look. It all depends on the theme that you are going for.
The first step is to pick the points where the skeleton arms of the web and this will determine the size of your spider web. Pick wider points if you wish to create a really large and complex design. From here on, you start with neatly adding the web rings to the basic outline. Creating a spider’s web like this takes just a few hours and is a great DIY Halloween idea to share with your kids.

I love the Nightmare Before Christmas, but can’t seem to find many themed decorations that I like. So I decided to make this wreath for Halloween…it came out better than I expected! I must say, im pretty proud of this one! I had a lot of the items needed for this project on hand, so it was super cheap to make too!
Every holiday deserves a wreath and they are so easy to make that you really should have one for Halloween. You can hang wreaths on the front door or just anywhere that you want a little extra spook going on.

Additionally, I’ve challenged myself not to buy any new decorations or “stuff” for the party this year, so I have been trying to come up with projects to use up my already oversized stash of supplies.
