Fall is approaching, the time for sweater vests and long pants is almost here. That also means it’s time to break out our fall/Halloween decorations.
Since we are all college students and some of us don’t have the funds to go buy dollars and dollars worth of store bought decor. Here is a very simple way to have a cheap, but artsy fall doorway!
- Grab a friend or two and go outside and take a walk around campus
- Grab a variety of leaves in color,shape, and size that you like
- Go back to your dorm, and put the leaves into text books and press the leaves. Let them sit for a few days
- After a little bit take them out and paste them onto the doorway
Step One: Grab the supplies needed for the craft. Balloons, yarn, glue, and pipe cleaners. Approximately a 10-15 dollar craft.
Step Two: Blow up one balloon to a reasonable pumpkin size. Run the string through the glue and place it on the balloon in your own pattern.
Step Three: When the string is nice and dry, take a needle and pop the balloon, remove the excess pieces and all that should be left is the string in a shape of a pumpkin.
Step Four: Finally add the pipe cleaner to make the stem of the pumpkin and display the pumpkin in your dorm. Repeat as many times as you would like!
