Yard Monsters!

I might be 12…but these yard monsters totally have me giggling (mental image of me running around the church putting them in every bush and tree around #crazyblogger) I think they are so cute to put in your front yard for Halloween (and hey…I’m not judging–you can leave them up all year!)  yard-monsters-such-a-fun-halloween-decoration

Here is what you need:

  • FloraCraft® Make It: Fun® Foam: Discs
  • Hot glue gun
  • White and black knit fabric
  • scissors

I used all different sizes of foam discs…they have big to small!

Then hot glue the edges around. Knit works the best because you can pull and stretch it and gets out all of the bulk around the edges!

You can add a skewer in the back on bottom to help stick into the shrubs and trees better…


I had to share all of these because I think they are all so fun! Eash bush looks so different! cute-halloween-decor eyeballs-decor You can also fashion up a nose and mouth and make a whole face!  fun-yard-monster halloween-lawn-decor
