To All My Single Friends Happy Halloween
You might want to use pliers. Braid them together and make them into a wreath/circle by twisting the top hooks together. Next tear or cut pieces of paper... about a foot long and wide. Pinch the paper strips in the middle and crunch it up as if you were making a flower. Tuck the "paper flowers" into the little holes in the braided wires and pull tight. Fill up your wreath to fullness! Spray paint it! About three coats of paint is good with about 50 minutes drying time in between. Use the kind of spray paint that holds up outside (in case of rain). Please do the spray painting outside or in a well ventilated room. Cover tables with those inexpensive plastic tablecloths. When the paint is good and dry attach the decorations with the hot (low temp is fine) glue gun. Just be careful not to burn yourself. Adults and older kids should be the glue gunners. You are done! Hang it up on your front door maybe with an orange light aimed at it.
If you are making a collage art with small children it will be a good idea to view the pictures to make sure the images are kid safe. Second buy some card stock with a Halloween autumn or spooky theme. Use it as the background or paint a canvas stretcher board dark or midnight blue. You can also make it more ingenious by having your own or the kids drawing on the collage art. It will convey a touch of your personality. Third is find pictures again you could find several online. Many art collage designers use Victorian photos but you may use family pictures or cutouts from books and magazines. Excellent resources for photos are thrift shops and yard sales. Some graphic designers advertise collage sheets for download and printed or shipped in the mail. Pictures from Halloween greeting cards are also available in this format.
You can use a cardboard box in making a scary coffin. Also get a large-size cardboard piece and cut out the shape of a coffin for the opening/cover. Paint a red or white cross over the top of the coffin. You can imitate the sound of stepping over a mass of bones by drying bread in the oven and placing them under an area rug. Cut out stone hedges out of Styrofoam paint them gray and write R.I.P. over them with a marker. You can also write your names or guest s names for that spooky feeling. Make body parts by stuffing rubber/latex gloves with cotton and painting the opening red for that bloody effect. For a realistic touch to your home decor you can fill goblets with blood and display them in hallways and your dining area! This will enhance that vampire-in-coffin feel.
You can spray-paint the bags either orange or black or use the colors for alternately placed bags. Weigh down the bags with sand and place small tea candles or votive candles inside glass votive cups in the bags. You can place these creepy luminaries all along the walkway up to the front porch for a spooky effect. It is a great way to lead the trick-or-treaters towards the treats awaiting them. A glass luminary can be made by using simple glass canning jars. Cut out a skeleton face a ghost face or a pumpkin face on a sheet of paper. Tape the paper to the front of the jar and spray paint with either black or orange color. Place a candle inside the jar and light it up to give an eerie look to the house! Another simple Halloween decoration can be made with the help of orange construction paper.
