Last year I bought some Halloween spider webs and plastic spiders on clearance ($.10 a package) and so we decided to use them and do a little spooky decorating this year.
We also made a Spider Tree. I used a topiary that I already had and then we covered it with spider web and plastic spiders.
We purchased an old glass juice jar at a garage sale for $.10 and used spray paint to make the lid black. Then we did a search on Swagbucks for free printable Halloween labels and found this Fur of Werewolf label. We printed it on old yellowed paper and distressed it. Can you guess what we put in the jar? It is the contents of my vacuum canister! I know, it's disgusting. We have a cat and therefore a lot of cat fur. Hey, it was FREE and it's recycling right??
We also put a few labels on wine bottles.
My favorite project was the Spooky Black Curtains we made for the dining room. Can you guess what they are made of? Crepe paper & black paper napkins! I got the idea from a video at MarthaStewart.com.
