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.
You need a white sheet as per the size of the bush a newspaper permanent black magic marker or fabric paint and cloth pins. The idea is to make a ghost like figure by painting a ghost on the white paper folding the white sheet balancing the sheet with the newspaper and securing the figure with the help of clothespins. Sounds really simple but it is definitely going to scare the passerby. Idea #2 - The other idea for Halloween is to make your house look very festive and very scary both the inside and the outside. I will show you how to get a scary path way. You will need lots of brown lunch bags orange paint sand and tea light or votive candle. Paint the bags orange in color and cut it out to make a scary face of a pumpkin. Fill half of the pumpkin face with sand and put a candle in it and light it.
Make a number of such luminaries and line your walkway with them for the trick or treat night. Another arts and craft idea for Halloween is to drape your home with fun ghost or pumpkin garlands. These garlands are really easy to make. You require some white construction paper if you are making ghosts or orange construction paper if you are making pumpkins. Draw your ghost or pumpkin on the paper using a pencil or pen. Ensure that while drawing the figures you leave a tab on the top to fold while stringing the garland. Draw funny or scary faces on the figure using a black marker and then cut out the figures. To make your garland really long cut out many such figures. Place the string on the fold of the tab. Use staples glue or tape to secure the figures.
Vampires Vampire masks with fangs can be easily made with paper plates. More imposing ornamental life size vampires however can be made out of coat hangers and black garbage bags. UFO UFOs are not typical Halloween figures but stories about alien abductions sure make scary Halloween tales. Make UFOs out of paper plates that you can hang from the ceiling. You might also want to complement the ships with cookies shaped like stereotypical aliens instead of ginger bread men. Worms Worms in cans can be made of brown crepe paper. They can seem yuckier to the touch though if you use gummy candies and cooked spaghetti. Ghosts Just like spiders ghosts can also have a lot of variations. You can make ghost Halloween arts and crafts for kids made of socks packing foam old cloths crepe paper helium filled balloons white painted jars tissue and clay. The Mummy For a mummified figure you can wrap a jar with tissue paper or gauze.
