EASY Holiday Decoration DIY

All you need is paper bags, pencil (Easier to edit), tape, red clear tape, desired image. Works for all holidays. Bunnies for Easter. Pot O Gold for Patty’s Day. Pumpkin for Halloween. Flag for 4th Stripes, stars. Etc. For Halloween, I taped paper bags to wall, set up flashlight, had my kiddos stand in front of bag, and outlined their silhouette for personalizing decor. Except daughter moved a lot so had to improvise, reason she looks like Beavis/Butthead. For pumpkin, I covered patio door, drew desired pumpkin, cut out, taped securely to window.
Cut paper bags and lay out to desired size, flat. Tape together. With pencil, draw out image. Cut accordingly. Use red tape to give color in areas desired. Ex.) Red nose, present ribbon. Hang on windows. Leave lights on at night, shut blinds. Enjoy cheap decorations.
(Yes, I realize the notes are backwards. As the hubs and kiddos pointed out… And laughed.)
