Spooktacular Monster Silhouettes!

Halloween is just around the corner and it's time to get those spooky decorations up! If you are looking for a unique, inexpensive and super-cute way to decorate your place, look no further! Monster silhouettes are easy to make and my toddler nearly lost her mind with excitement when I first put them up. In fact, she loved these adorable monsters so much we ended up keeping one up in the house all year round. I originally found my inspiration while surfing the net one day. Here is the pic I came across and I knew instantly that I had to have these googly monsters in my house...ASAP.

Materials (ALL from dollarama!)
  • Black bristol board 
  • Yellow or green tissue paper (or any spooky colour you want!)
  • Scissors 
  • Tape 

  1. Cut out monster shapes from black Bristol board (if you want to make giant sized monsters, just tape pieces of Bristol board together). See shutterstock pic below for some inspiration (or just google images for "monster silhouettes").

  2. Use coloured tissue paper to cover eyes, mouths etc. 
  3. Tape monsters onto windows. 
  4. When it gets dark out, turn on the lights in your house to bring these monsters to life!

 So simple and fun! Your house will be the hit on the block so be sure to get lots of candy to hand out:) What spooky decorations are you planning on putting up this year?

 Happy Halloween!
