Did someone say spooky season? It's the first week of October, and that means it's time to get your Halloween decorations in full swing! We created three easy Halloween decor DIY's to get your haunted home in a festive mood. These decorating ideas are so simple that the whole family can help with them, and they are made even more simple with the utilization of a handy-dandy Rettel Roller. So heat yourself up a cup of apple cider, cue the Monster Mash and let's get started!
Swarm of Bats
Trace and cut a bat shape out of the black paper. We used a Cricut cutter to make this step super easy!
Attach pieces of tape to the back of the paper bats and begin arranging them on your wall or on top of your Rettel Roller.
Repeat with all your bat cut-outs until you have a swarm! Tip: If you'd like your bat wings to look 3D, fold your bats in half before taping and tape them to the wall crease-side down.
White Rettel Roller Replacement Roll (optional)
Plastic Spiders or a Black Marker
Align your string vertically in the center of your wall (or Rettel Roller) and tape to the wall. Repeat horizontally and then crosswise, like cutting a pie, until you've taped four strings to the wall equal distances apart.
Tie a knot in the center of the "web" with black string and cut off the excess. Tie a long piece of black string in a knot on one of the strings near the center. Move from string to string, wrapping the long piece of string around each section as you go (no need to tie knots around every string).
Once your web is as big as you'd like it to be, tie off the final string in a knot and cut off the excess. Tape or hot glue plastic spiders to the web. If you created your web on top of a Rettel Roller, you can use a marker to draw your own spiders onto the paper behind the web!
Black Rettel Roller Replacement Roll or Black Craft Paper
Large Googly Eyes
Attach your googly eyes to the center of your Rettel Roller or black paper near the top.
Begin to wrap the black paper with sections of white cheesecloth, hot gluing them down at the edges. Cut each section and tuck the extra behind the roller to give it a clean edge.
Continue to hot glue sections of cheesecloth to the black paper in layers until your mummy is completely wrapped. Rough up the edges of the cheesecloth to give the fabric an organic look.
