Halloween decoration made with recycled
Let’s go for Halloween special week on Be Frenchie. For once, we were happy it rains on a Sunday, we took advantage of it to DIY with 6 hands. For Halloween, we wanted to create an easy-to-make & poetic decoration.
We also challenged ourselves to make it only with recycled items that we already own.
And the result? An invisible man well sheltered under his umbrella. It’s decorating Virgile bedroom until Halloween, and we’ll take it with us for our sweets tour on the 31th of October. So, we’ll be well accompanied to visit neighbors, and sheltered in case of rain.
Would you also like to make your own invisible man singin’ in the rain ? But how to do it ? No panic, it’s child’s play !
We used :
black umbrella, ours is an IKEA Family waiting day of glory in our hallway
hat, Virgile loaned is favorite one with cat ears to our invisible man
glasses, ours are sunglasses from HEMA
white, yellow & black cardboard paper or foam to make clouds and mustache
nylon thread to suspend the whole
How to make it :
We opened our umbrella and placed it on a drying rack
We cut the mustache, clouds and a little lightning in foam
We used nylon thread to suspend mustaches to glasses, glasses to hat, and hat to umbrella ribs ( with the help of a bit of tape )
Then we suspended clouds to ribs
And finally, we suspended the umbrella to ceiling. Tadaaa, there you are ! We love our decoration, it just takes 30 minutes to make it, doesn’t cost us anything and after Halloween we’ll even be able to use again objects that made it.
I couldn’t end my post without Gene Kelly – who didn’t had an umbrella but divinely dance in the rain ! And here comes bonus photos that will give you some clues on our next special Halloween post to come …Can you guess what it will be?
Answer is coming on Wednesday !
