Halloween decorations made easy

(Toledo News Now) -

Halloween is less than a month away, and while carving pumpkins and bobbing for apples are fun activities, they can get messy.

There are several crafts the whole family can create that are mess-free, fast and simple.

By using black garbage bags and a pair of scissors, you can create spider webs to decorate both the inside and outside of your home. The plastic is waterproof, which allows your creation to stay outside regardless of the weather.

Simply cut a square shape out of your trash bag, then fold it into a triangle, three times over. From there, you can cut out whatever shape you prefer, creating a design once the bag is unfolded.

Toilet paper rolls are something everyone has around the home. By wrapping a roll in orange tissue paper and adding mouth and eye cutouts with black construction paper, you can create a cheap and easy Jack-O' Lantern-style decoration for anywhere inside the home, including the bathroom!

Lastly, empty milk cartons can be used as another Jack-O' Lantern alternative to decorate the yard. With a black permanent marker, you can draw a face on the carton, dropping a nightlight into it to allow for a safe light-up decoration.

Kimberly Newman and Crystal Clark demonstrate how it's done on ‘Your Morning Saturday.'
