Introduction: Funny Halloween Decoration

About: I'm a musician, crafter, dessert lover and proud grandma.

Halloween is super close!

So I decided to create this funny Halloween decoration inspired in the movie "The Nightmare before XMas". What I liked the most is that t it was created with recycled materials and the result looks super original. The led lights add a mystic touch, super eye-catching!

So get ready and creative to create your own version of this funny decoration!

Step 1: Gather Your Materials

  • Plastic paint spray (white)
  • Old XMas ornaments
  • Masking tape
  • Permanent marker
  • Branches
  • Flower vase
  • 3M led light with batteries

Step 2: Paint Ornaments

First, you need to paint the ornaments. To facilitate this activity, I remove the upper part of the ornament (you will not use it later) introduced each ornament in a stick, sealed it with masking tape and then spray paint the ornaments.

You should let the paint dry for around 15 minutes.

Step 3: Draw Faces in Ornaments

Here comes the funnies part!

Draw the faces you like the most in the ornaments. Remember that the stick is still there (it should be in the bottom to ensure you do not draw the face upside down).

Step 4: Remove Stick

When your face is ready, you can remove masking tape and stick

Step 5: Place Together Branches, Light and Jack Faces

You are ready! You only need to assembly all pieces: Add the branches in the flower vase, put led lights around and in the end add Jack faces!
