Halloween Windows

We try to do this window idea every year using different silhouettes every time.
It's so cheap and easy and fast to do. You can save them and use them year after year or trash them and make more.
They are dollar store coloured plastic tableclothes cut to the size of the window. We added black plastic tablecloth silhouettes to the coloured plastic sheets. We used double sided tape to attatch the shapes and hang the pieces up.

We cut holes through both layers to show candle flames.

This is looking out from the inside.
The roses were a gift for Mom from Auntie J and the A man!
Soooooooooo beautiful!!!

Here is a blurry shot of the side yard windows. I really liked the giant spider.

Here is the front yard all gussied up.
I love Halloween!!!

I love, love, love this idea! Where do you get the colored plastic sheets? I'm a little lost on that step, could you explain it a bit more in depth?
Also, I've been browsing your site for over and hour now and i'm amazed. You're an inspiration to me to become more crafty haha. Love your site!

Thanks for the kind words Misha!

Colorful plastic sheets are dollar store plastic table cloths. We hang a colorful plastic tablecloth in the window (cut to size) and then add silhouettes cut out of a black plastic tablecloth to the back of the colorful tablecloth. When you turn on a light in the room you can see the silhouettes from the outside of the house. Cheap and easy! Instantly frightening. We've been using this technique for years and it's always a huge hit.
