last minute

…it’s my style. No matter how much I try to prepare, I am always doing things at the last-minute. So Halloween is no different this year for me. Here’s some last-minute Halloween ideas that you can easily do, and still impress your guests, or kids. Some can even lengthen the ‘fall’ holidays {Halloween and Thanksgiving}, because the idea may be relevant for both occasions.

glue!

Looking for a super-duper easy and cute Halloween DIY? Look no further. Spin your own spider web’s this Halloween…using a hot glue gun. I used my webs as an accessory for a festive table setting, but these can be hung or displayed in so many ways.

All You Need:
Hot Glue Gun and Glue Sticks
Wax paper
Olive Oil {an oil spray may work too}

How To:
Cut the wax paper into a square, or the shape/size you want your spider web to be.
Spray, paint, or rub the olive oil onto the wax paper with your fingers. I found that the olive oil helped the glue not to stick when I pulled it from the paper.
Use your hot glue gun and design. I free-handed the webs {clearly}, but I suppose you could put a stencil/photo under the wax paper, and follow the lines.
Once your design is finished, gently pull the glue web from the wax paper. If it sticks in a few spots here and there, just gently pull the wax paper from the glue.
