Halloween Party - Part 1

Welcome to our Halloween Party!


(Remember this was done on a $23 decorating budget)

The theme for the party was "Spiders and Bats, Oh my!"

Most of the items in this section were made from free items or items that I

already had at home.







The poster board was purchased, but the wooden stakes were FREE from Lowe's.

They are extra wood slats that other pieces of wood rest upon.

When I asked them the price, they told me that I could have them for free. Way cool!




This ghost is made from supplies that I had at home- extra clothes and an old sheet.




This is my favorite project. The wreath is made from items that we all have at home.

The wreath gets its shape from a coat hanger.

 Then I cut plastic trash bags into strips and tied them to the coat hanger.

I purchased the spiders and hot glued them to the wreath.


Tune in tomorrow for scenes from inside the BAT CAVE!

Until Next Time...Happy Quilting!

I love the wreath! It's cool you say that you used a trash bag (great idea) because I cut thin strips out of trash bags and hung them on the ceiling throughout the living room and kitchen. Of course, that was a Halloween party we had years ago. It created a really cool effect and it was cheap! Can't wait to see more!
