Texas-Sized Thrills on a Tiny Budget: DIY Halloween Magic for the Spookiest House in Town
Spooky season is slowly approaching (it's ok if you've busted out the decor already).
Do you ever just drive around your neighborhood during spooky season and think, I wish my house looked like that, with amazing Halloween decorations.
Halloween decorations may be easier than you think. You don't have to go and drop $300 on one Halloween decoration. That $300 could decorate your whole yard.
Halloween decorations can be affordable One of the best places to go to save money on Halloween decorations is Dollar Tree because you can buy a lot of Halloween things and then transform them into something better.
Georgie from IT
If you are a huge IT fan, then creating a Georgie for your front lawn is easy. All you need is some pool noodles, a kid's yellow rain jacket, some rain boots, and a red balloon.
You may be wanting the popular puking skeleton. It looks fairly easy to make, however the materials to make it happen may be somewhat costly. You'll need a 50 gallon drum or a large trash can, a pump, a skeleton, rubber tubing, foam, paint, plus the products to color the water. Those choices may vary.
If you're a fan of The Ring, you can create a creepy well in your front yard with spray foam, paint, chicken wire, stakes, and a creepy longhaired doll.
Skeleton in a Cage
This is fairly simple to make, you'll need two round laundry baskets, ring clips, a small skeleton, a fake chain, and paint.
