Halloween Window Silhouettes
Halloween home decorations can get very pricey. I was at Home Depot and saw a dragon for the yard. It was around $300. Of course it was huge and breathed flames through a fogged atmosphere, but still. If you don’t have a fortune to spend on Halloween, this simple window project is perfect. You can make it for pennies and for almost any size window. It requires a white plastic tablecloth from the dollar store, a computer with a graphics program and printer paper. Find a free black and white Halloween image or stencil online, or combine several images and print them out. The image you choose may be copyright protected. It is your responsibility to determine if it is in the public domain and if you can legally use it. If you have drawing talent, you can outline an image on the plastic to the exact size then use black craft paint to fill it in. The possibilities for fun window decor are endless. Light behind the window puts the images in spooky silhouette.
step 7 - Position a light behind the window at night. The silhouettes will display dramatically outside the house.
