How to Terrify Children with Cheesecloth

One of the easiest and least expensive ways to decorate your home for Halloween is by draping a little cheesecloth in all the right places.

A snip-snip here and a little rip there transforms this seemingly-harmless material into something spook-tacular!

What a cool way to tablescape for a Halloween party!

I like to drape cheesecloth over sconces and light fixtures, like this one in the entry of my home.  It creates a spooky glow among the black crows, spiders, and glitter skulls under glass.

 

What simple materials do you use to make your home spooky at Halloween?

I like to leave up all the cobwebs that are normally there but claim that it’s for Halloween!

Clever use of cheesecloth, creepy cute! I spray paint my dead summer flowers and dried branches with gloss black to decorate my front porch. Add a few of my floaty bats and it’s Halloween, baby.

This is great Kristie… and looks less messy than working with that pully filmy stuff (what’s it called?)!

Have a great weekend!

I always have cheesecloth on hand for making Greek yogurt and kefir cheese. It occurred to me that just letting the stuff continue to ooze through the cheesecloth might add to the creepiness 😉 LOL!

Cool idea! I’ve been using spanish moss this year in my Halloween decor. It has that “graveyard chic” look about it.

Warmly, Michelle

Wow! You have gone all out and it looks terrific! I’ll file this away for future terrorizing!
