Halloween Spiderweb Placemat Wreath
My daughter loves spiders and since I had Kohl's Cash from a previous purchase, I bought this placemat for less than $4. Here is my take and twist for this cute spiderweb indoor wreath.
Fabric Covered Foam Pumpkin
This foam pumpkin was from Dollar Tree (last year) and should be available again this year. The pumpkin was originally orange, but I painted it white. The hole was for succulents (as a succulent pumpkin center piece). Once Halloween was over, I emptied the succulents back into the soil outside and kept the foam pumpkin.
This was a fun craft, but I learned a valuable lesson. Never load the photos and then delete them before they are loaded. I lost half the photos I needed, but found a tiny jar to "finish out the process". It's been fun and I hope you like them!

The main concept of this bat is the yarn pom pom body. The pom pom is actually from a pair of my house slippers that I didn't like. I repurposed the pom poms into this cute bat decoration. If you do not have pom poms in your home, you can make a pom pom with yarn, or they sell already made pom poms at your local craft store.
Ghost Night Light
Add some cuteness to your night lights. Since it's Halloween time, I guess this won't be too scary for the kids if displayed at night. Gather some clean white bond paper and create this simple figure to decorate your mini night lights.
Floating Fabric Ghost
This is a simple way to make a really cool ghost decoration for the Halloween season. When it's all done, it's just the fabric that's standing up on its own; it does not need any support.
