Spice Up Your Halloween Season With Creative Burlap Decor

Spice Up Your Halloween Season With Creative Burlap DecorThe Halloween season is upon us, bringing with it the chance to decorate your house with spooky and cute decorations. It can be costly to constantly turn to store bought decorations and the common, almost overdone themes and styles therein, but you can always break away from the aisles of mass produced decor to create your very own! If you decide to break out the arts and crafts table this year, consider using burlap as a material that is both biodegradable and eco-friendly! If you happen to be short on ideas, then perhaps the following list can give you a jumping off point - you'll find that burlap is a suggested supply in all of them.

 

Halloween Wreath

Wreaths are excellent decorations for all times of the year. With the added supplies of paint, a foam wreath ring, and scissors, you can create a spooky and festive wreath that is perfect for the Halloween season. You will first need to cut the burlap into strips, and then paint both them in the color you feel will suit your Halloween decor the best. Once dry, you attach the strips to the wring using double knots. Plump up your spooky wreath by overlapping the strips and bunching them together. Once you have your wreath as full and festive as you like it, you can embellish your wreath further with small ornaments, decorative paper, and other accessories.
