Here's my contribution, Halloween Tree.
It's not hard to do but has several parts. First, what you need:
From the Dollarama (or other dollar store):
- a plastic pumpkin pail
- mini spider webs with spiders
- foam cutouts
- plastic skulls
- Halloween scrapbooking supplies (ribbon, paper, stickers, etc)
From the Hardware Store:
- insulating foam
- black spray paint
- glitter spray paint
- sphagnum moss
From Around the House:
- Tree branch (don't use birch- too fragile)
- mod podge
- foam brushes
- candy corn
What You Do:
(The Tree) First, spray the branch black. It may take several coats. Let dry thoroughly. Place heavy stones in bottom of pail. Put the branch in center of pail. Secure (so it won't tip over). Fill pail with foam. The foam will expand so you may have to tidy it up later. Let dry completely. Place sphagnum moss over foam. Toss candy corn on top.
(Ornaments): Glitter Spray foam cut outs on one side. Dry. Make a hanger with ribbon. Mod Podge foam cut outs on unglittered side. Sandwich ribbon between 2 (of the same) foam cut outs. (See pic on right).
Mod Podge scrapbook paper, stickers, photos of Halloweens Past on to one side of several 2-4 inch square pieces of cardboard. Let Dry. Glue 2 squares together, sandwiching ribbon hangers between them.
Hang handmade ornaments, skulls. Spread webs and place spiders in web. Find somewhere safe to display.
