Yesterday I posted about a couple of simple Halloween decor projects that don't take much time and don't cost a lot of money. Click HERE if you missed that post.
Today I thought I'd show a few more things I've made or done for Halloween decor.
This idea was not one of my own; I saw it in a Martha Stewart magazine a few years ago. The template for the raven used to be available on her website, but I didn't use it and just drew it free hand. This was super easy and cost virtually nothing; I only had to buy the roll of black crepe paper; the leaves and black card stock I already had!
I made a few silhouettes myself to go with my Halloween decor, which might seem a little bizarre, but for some reason I think they work well. Above I have one that I displayed on the mantel last year. The silhouette I drew myself freehand on black card stock, and after cutting it out, mounted it on a piece of light green repousse' card stock, which was actually leftover paper from when I made my wedding invitations in 2007! I found an old frame in a junk shop for $1.00 and spray painted it black, then rubbed some gold Rub n' Buff on it in to highlight a decorative dentil edging on the frame. The total cost for this project was the $1.00 I spent on the frame. The rest of the materials were leftovers from other projects.
You can get free silhouette clip art online in many places, if you're not comfortable making drawings yourself. Here's one site I found ; Silhouette Clip Art. The Graphics Fairy might also have some images that could be used as well and she often will find certain images on request.
Thanks for stopping by!
I hope you found some more ideas to use in your own home!
