Last-Minute Halloween Decorations


 

Happy Halloween! If you’re getting into the spirit of the season late, there is still plenty of time to create some last-minute festive decorations to satisfy the ghouls and goblins knocking on your door.

 

We’ve gathered five easy, do-it-yourself crafts to suit your needs.

 

A Banner Time

 

Last-Minute Halloween Decorations

 

Grab some black cloth, a thin, wooden dowel and string or ribbon. Cut the fabric down to the size you’d like and trace the word, “Boo,” in the center. Cut out the letters. Then, hem the sides of the banner, except the top, by folding down the raw edges underneath. Use a hot-glue gun to secure the edges.

 

Fold the top of the banner down about an inch and carefully glue the edge in place, leaving enough room for the dowel to slide in. Insert the dowel and tie your string, yarn or ribbon at each end.
