And continue until you have many different color of spidders. And some perfect glittery spiders are ready for Halloween.

Blood Dripper Candles

How To

Just begin with lighting the red candle and letting some wax smell. And then carefully let the wax drip off the red candle on to the edge of the white candle. Be super careful because the hot wax may burn yourself. And then just continues dripping all around the candle. Make 3 or 4 or as many as you needed. And then you’ll left those awesome effects of the blood dripping on the side of the white candle.

Creepy Cheesecloth Ghost 


Supplies

•Large Doll
•Cheesecloth
•Fabric Stiffener

How To

Start with the doll, wrap the cheesecloth over the large doll. Tag the fabric around the arms and legs to get form. And then spray the stiffener on to the cheesecloth, if the cheesecloth wet it will start to wrinkle open more up to the doll’s body. Give it the thick even coat. You may need to do this outside your house because it may make your room sticky. After it finished leave it overnight to dry. After it dries gently peel away the cheesecloth from the doll, and set them in the step for spooky Halloween and for sure it will make your guesses scare.

When you are renting a house/room, you may see an ugly and boring room. And most rental agreements prohibit the use of paint and many will not even allow you to hang anything on the walls. It’s not a big deal, because there is a solution to this common decorating. DIY fabric wallpaper. This work is cheap, easy, temporary and the process won’t remove and damaging the original paint and it’s completely removable too. Create your own beautiful removable wallpaper with these steps below.



Materials :
1.Fabric wallpaper of your choice
2.Thumbtacks
3.Fabric iquid starch
4.Paint brush
5.Rolling brush
6.Paint tray
7.Razor blade / utility knife

Step one :
Before purchasing your fabric, measure out the space you’re going to be covering to determine just how much fabric you’ll need. Most fabric is 40”-50” wide and is sold in yards. After measure and deciding what you’ll need, buy an extra yard. (The extra fabric will allow for any trimming required).

Step two :
Start pinning the fabric onto the wall using the thumbtacks and make sure that the edges are safe and clear so you didn’t have one edge is too short and the other is too long. Be sure to leave overlap at the corners, baseboard and top of the wall for nice clean finish.You’ll trim the excess at the very end with utility knife. After the fabric open up on the wall, pour the starch in to a paint tray.

Apply starch from wall corner way down in and out using paint brush and then continue using the roller. The rolling brush works well, because it applies more starch to largest areas. You don’t be afraid of putting a lot starch onto the wall because you’ll need this a lot for this process. Make sure the starch goes all the way through to the wall evenly. To ensure it get in to the corners use your fingers or a piece of cardboard if necessary.

Step three :
After your wall fully coat with starch begin to sweep up all the bubbles with your hands. Start from the top and work your way down, smoothing out the bubbles or wrinkles as you go. Just continue to repeat this process until your whole walls is cover up with fabric.

Step Four  :
Once the fabric is completely dry and stiff, use the razor blade or utility knife straightly cut any excess fabric. After that slowly peel off.

Helpful tips :
•Thicker material is recommended.
•To remove fabric from the wall, apply hot water to it with sponge or towel. The fabric will easily peel off the wall, and won’t bring any pre-existing finish underneath off with it.
•If the fabric started to peel off and you still want it to be there, just touch it up with starch.
•Be sure fabric is completely dry before trimming any of the overlap. Once the fabric is stiff, it    will cut easily, ensuring clean lines and good fit.
•If you’re choosing the design fabric, make sure the pattern transitions nicely from one panel to another

Recycled CD’s Wall Decor

Add Comment
Without spending big money, make life easier but yet you can decorate your wall with a cute art that you may not imaging by just using recycled CD’s. Here’s is the ideas and how to.



Materials :
1.Old Cd’s or Dvd’s
2.Hot glue gun
3.Spray paint
4.Sharp scissors
5.Bamboo or wood Skewers
6.Ruler & pencil

How to :
Use the ruler and pencil to draw a line on CD and then use the hot glue gun to stick the bamboo skewers on it’s lines. Be careful when you are using the hot glue gun. Incase you can’t access hot glue gun, you can use any glue. It will just take longer to dry and won’t be as secure as it would have with a hot glue.




After you finish sticking the bamboo skewers in the marks, spray the paint. Wear mask if it necessary.



The next, take another CD and draw a circle, use the sharp scissors and cut gently around the traced area. Make sure your circles are not too small. Because it will make you difficult to cut and you also don’t want to break them while you are cutting it. Don’t waste the leftover cutter CD’s because you can make use of it later.



Put some hot glue around the center, and stick a CD on it. And then start working on decorating the bamboo skewers with the cutting circle that you’ve made. Use hot glue and stick the circle on one by one. Once again, be careful when you are working with the hot glue.



Continue stick the circle around. After it’s all done, you can start to use the unwanted CD’s that you cut just now. Use hot glue to stick it on the center, arrange nicely so that looks more artistic.



Add layer by layer and don’t forget to put some hot glue on every layer before you adding the cutter CD’s. You can cut free shapes if it’s no enough and add more into it. You’ll get surprise how beautiful it turned.




And now you can just hang it on the wall where you wanted to hang. There is a circular hole on the back of the CD. It makes you easy to hang it on the wall. You may also need a nail if your wall haven’t got.

You can also make sunburst wall hanging. What you’ll need to do is almost the same as the above but you’ll need other materials too like white stone and white pearls for the decorations.



Have fun and be creative !!!
