A Tampon Halloween: Decorating On The Cheap

[ 4 ] October 14, 2012 |

Do you love Halloween but have no money to decorate with (who does in this economy)? Why not use items you already have around the house or can get at the 99 Cent store and fly your white trash, redneck or ghetto flag high and proud?

I give you A Tampon Halloween (courtesy of Tampon Crafts):

You could make this even trashier by adding an EEEWWW factor with red food coloring or…let’s not go to the alternative, shall we? Hang these puppies up around your house, add some fake spider webs and VOILA! instant Halloween decor for the broke and frugal!

This tampon bat is slightly more involved — and no one will know it was made with a feminine hygiene product unless you tell them — but it’s still a novel way to add some All Hallow’s Eve cheer to your home. I suggest you use them for your next childrens’ party and wait for the parents to ask — or figure out — how you made them! You know that little nugget will spread like The Plague through the school Stepford Wives Club PTA. The looks you’ll get at the school drop-off Monday morning will be worth it, I promise.

You could also modify these “lights” to suit any holiday color scheme. Get the kids involved, it’s wholesome fun for the whole family!

All tutorials can be found at TamponCrafts.com

Just to increase the creep factor — and give a nod to one my family’s favorite shows, The Walking Dead — why not splurge on this cool zombie cat yard decoration?

And since Thanksgiving is also just around the corner, why not get a head start on your holiday centerpieces and wow your family with your mad crafting skills? The Turkey Day prayer will be beautifully enhanced by popping this gobbler in the center of your family table!
