Happy Haunting!
This project cost me about 25 dollars in total. I love my new decorations! And the best part is, they're almost all reusable!

  • Step 1

    I made my chandelier first, inspired by cardboard chandelier by alchemy l on cutoutandkeep.

    First I drew the image of a chandelier onto the cardboard (you can use a stencil for this if you have one) I cut it out, then used that as a stencil to make another. You could make as many as you want depending on how "thick" you want your chandelier to look. I just used two pieces. After I got these cut out I carefully cut them both in half down the center. (my bf had to help :p) Then I hot glued them together to make the chandelier 3D. After it dried completely I spray painted it black. This took about two coats. After that dried I hot glued some gold sequins where the flame of the candle should be, and draped some cobwebbing over the entire chandelier for a spooky effect. I used fishing line to attach it to my ceiling.

  • Step 2

    Next I worked on my bats. These were super easy. I just drew the image of a bat onto some black construction paper(again you can use a stencil if you have one) I made 3 different sizes of bats and then cut them out. This took about 10 sheets of paper. Then I taped them to my door with scotch tape.

  • Step 3

    After that I made my autumn bouquet. To do this I bought 2 sets of fake falling leaves at walmart for a dollar a piece (the dollar store has good ones too)I also got these little things that look like orange berries for a dollar too. I arranged them together and tied them up with some orange ribbon. I hung them on my door with a straightened out wire clothes hanger fixed into a wreath holder.

  • Step 4

    Next was my spooky tree. I got this idea from Martha Stewart's Halloween magazine. I went out into the yard and found about 4 twisted dead spooky looking branches. I brushed the dirt off them, hot glued them together and then spray painted them black. I stood them up in a cup, just one from my kitchen and shoved pebbles into the bottom of it for stability. Then I scraped up some dead grass for hay and placed in inside the cup as well.

  • Step 5

    Then I made my little ghosts. For this I used coffee filters. I put a small amount of rolled up paper towel in the center of them filter and wrapped the bottom part of the filter around it. That forms the head. Then I tied fishing line around the neck part to make the skirt more full. I used a needle to thread fishing line through the head of the ghost and hang him from the tree. I also had some extra bats so I hung them on the tree with fishing line also.

  • Step 6

    Now for my little "spooky" sign. For this is just drew the word spooky onto some cardboard and cut it out with the razor blade. Then I colored in my letters (I used marker but paint would be better) Then when it dried I hot glued some pegs to back to help it stand up.

  • Step 7

    Then as a finishing touch I bought some cheap decorations form the dollar store (mini skulls, mini pumpkins, big pumpkins, and a light up pumpkin)
