DIY This: High-gloss bookends for Halloween
In partnership with The Home Depot

I have boxes upon boxes of Christmas decor, but do you know what I always wish I had more of? Halloween decorations! Most of the spooky decor associated with this ghoulish of holidays doesn't last for more than one season (I'm talking to you, weird bag of spider webs!).

I am so happy to be posting this how-to! I found it about 10 months ago, and have been waiting for an opportune time to post it. The only thing is, I wish the picture was larger, because I don’t think it does the outcome justice. Oh, well. It’s still a great way to add some spooky ambiance to your dwelling this Halloween. Here’s what we’ll need to start the haunt:

  • gauze fabric (3 yards at 36″ wide)
  • 1 white plastic mask, or 2 if you want a two-sided ghost
  • 1 strand of clear twinkle lights with white wire
  • 1 small plastic ring
  • a glue gun and glue sticks
