How to make your decor last longer
If you want your Halloween decorations to last longer, there are a few things you can do. First, avoid putting them up too early. It may be tempting to get a jump on the holiday, but if you wait until closer to Halloween, your decorations will last longer.
Second, use quality materials. Cheap materials are more likely to break or wear out quickly. Third, take care when handling your decorations. Be careful not to drop or break them. Finally, storage is important. Store your decorations in a cool, dry place where they won’t be damaged. By following these tips, you can enjoy your Halloween decorations for many years to come!
Assuming you would like a list of supplies needed:
-1 yard black felt fabric
-1 yard orange felt fabric

Step by step guide
1. Choose your materials. For this project, you’ll need a black poster board, a white poster board, scissors, glue, and a pen.
2. Cut the black poster board into small pieces. You can make them as big or small as you want, but we recommend making them about 2-3 inches in size.
3. Cut the white poster board into slightly larger pieces. These will be your ghosts!
4. To make the ghost’s head, take one of the white pieces and cut it in half vertically. Then, cut out a small oval shape from the center of the top half. This will be the ghost’s face.
5. Glue the two halves of the ghost’s head together, then glue it to one of the black pieces. Repeat this process until all of your ghosts have heads.
6. To finish off your ghosts, use the pen to draw on eyes and mouths. You can also add other details like hats or bows if you want!

Buy some fake spider webs
Halloween is just around the corner, and if you’re like me, you’re probably looking for some simple, inexpensive ways to decorate your home for the holiday. One of my favorite things to do is drape fake spider webs around doorways, windows, and furniture.
You can find fake spider webs at most party stores or online. They come in a variety of colors and sizes, so you can definitely find something that will work with your Halloween decor. I like to drape them around doorways and windows for a spooky effect.
If you want to get really creative, you can also use them to create unique Halloween decorations. For example, you could drape a web over a lampshade or hang one from the ceiling. You could even use them to make spiderweb-covered picture frames or vases.
So if you’re looking for an easy way to add some Halloween flair to your home, don’t forget the fake spider webs!
Make some ghosts out of sheets
What you’ll need:
-A black Sharpie
-A hanger (optional)
1. Cut a sheet into a ghost shape. Make sure to leave a few inches at the top for the head.
2. Cut out two smaller circles for the eyes and a larger one for the mouth.
3. Use the black Sharpie to draw on the eyes and mouth.
4. Tape the ghost to a hanger or a wall.
Put up some halloween lights
Halloween is a fun holiday that is perfect for decorating your home with spooky lights. There are many different ways that you can put up halloween lights, but we have compiled a few of the simplest and most effective methods.
If you want to put up halloween lights without too much fuss, then string lights are the way to go. You can buy string lights in a variety of colors, but orange and green are the most traditional for halloween. Simply drape the lights around doorways, windows, or anywhere else in your home that you want to add some spooky flair.
Another easy way to add halloween lights is with window decals. You can find these at most craft stores, and they come in a variety of Halloween-themed designs. All you need to do is peel off the backing and stick them onto your windows. They’ll let in plenty of light during the day, and at night they’ll glow eerily, adding to the overall atmosphere of your Halloween decorations.
If you want something a little more dramatic than string lights or window decals, then consider setting up strobe lights or blacklights around your home. These can create a very eerie effect, particularly if you use them sparingly. Set them up in corners or behind objects so that they flash intermittently, giving your guests a good scare when they least expect it!
With just a few simple supplies and some creativity, you can easily make your own Halloween decorations that are sure to impress. Whether you want to create something spooky or cute, there’s a DIY project here for you. So get creative and have fun!
