I started to think about how we all love to decorate for Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas. All three holidays are approximately 30 days apart! How can we possibly keep up with this? How do we find the space for it all? And, what about the expenses to decorate?
Well, my friends...this is another opportunity for another Cheapskate Tip: Part 1 of 3. Today, I will share with you a very scary wreath for the kiddos to fear when knocking on your door. This wreath came out to just under $5 since I used items I had around the house. The postmortem sock monkey was an impulse purchase I could not resist.
- Take any holiday wreath that you most likely own already.
- Find some yarn that you have hiding away in your craft room that invokes the colors of Halloween: orange, black, silver, etc.
- Wrap the yarn around the parameter of the wreath. This is completely up to you--wrap the entire wreath with yarn or make a small pinstripe effect. I decided on three large areas to wrap so that it looks reminiscent of a biohazard symbol.
- Attach your favorite spooky decoration or figurine any way you wish.
- Hang it up!
Spook it up! Until next time!
