DIY Halloween decorations

Hey guys! So, this year I have decided to make my own halloween decorations from stuff i have laying around the house. I know this is a crochet bog, however, i thought it'd be fun to switch it up a bit!! These are all going to be pretty easy crafts and i will be posting them with instructions as i go along. ☺ Enjoy & have fun!

The first idea i came up with, was for our main wall in the house. After exploring online for ideas I finally came up with this!

Basically, all i did was take some yarn i had laying around and make the web, using this link as a guide: 

For the bats, all i used was black construction paper & double sided tape. I found a great template to work from and I just traced multiple bats onto the black construction paper, stacked a few sheets together & cut them out. I then folded the wings upwards and curvy, placed the double sided tape on the underbelly & stuck them to the wall as pictured ☺ I will definitely be putting more of these around the house. 

The spiders i used another template guide, but the one i used is for spider garland so it was alot faster to make them. I then used some glitter to make them fun & spooky.  

Hope you guys enjoy this project & Happy Halloween 🎃👻
