I’ve never been much of a Halloween decorator, but when I got an early peek at the FloraCraft 2015 Halloween E-book, so many foam halloween decor ideas flooded into my brain! With just a few materials, I had darling (or should I say, spooky) Halloween Decor ready to go!
I loved the foam lighted garland and it inspired me to create a tabletop version!
To make Foam Halloween Decor easily, you’ll need foam balls which come in a variety of sizes. I used the 2 1/2″ balls for my Halloween Spider, Bat, and Ghosts.
All of the decor uses lollipop sticks, paper straws and googly eyes – and each character uses different materials.
To make the ghosts, you’ll need: foam balls and cheesecloth
To make the spider and bat you’ll need: black yarn, foam balls and black pipe cleaners
I wrapped the foam balls with black yarn and used hot glue to stick on the eyes.
Then, I used my incredible pipe cleaner folding skills and created legs for the spider and wings for the bat and just stuck them into the foam – super easy!
The ghosts were even easier than that! I cut a piece of cheesecloth, draped it over the foam ball, and glued on googly eyes. Piece.of.cake!
To stand them up in a display jar, I pushed a lollipop stick into the foam ball and then stuck that into a paper straw – giving it extra length. I filled the jar with candy corn for the perfect Fall Decor!
