12. Huge Black Spider
Start Halloween night off right by greeting your trick-or-treaters with a huge black spider! I like this idea for a large shrub or bush covered in spider webbing. A milk jug (with the top cut off and cleaned thoroughly), black Duct tape and black pipe insulation is all you will need to make this eight-legged friend.
- You can also use spray painted styrofoam balls in place of the milk jug (one large for the body and one a little smaller for the head).
- Glue feathers from a black boa all over the body to make it hairy!
- Cut small triangles out of the pipe insulation where you want the legs to bend, and then use duct tape to secure it in a bent position.
- Use ping pong balls or large googley eyes for the eyes, and add detail to the body with paint if you’d like.
13. Frankenstein Door
I’m not suggesting that you paint your door green, but this Frankenstein door is too cool! The project itself will cost you under a buck, and for the ease and low cost, it sure does create a big impact! Check out how it was done here.
14. Trash Bag Spider Webs
You don’t even have to bother leaving the house for this super cute and thrifty Halloween craft. A few black trash bags and scissors will do the trick! They look really cool hanging in front of the window, and they create a nice silhouette in the window at night. Check out the instructions over at Fast Forward Fun (one of my other blogs). 🙂
I like this project so much I made a little video tutorial:
