Halloween Decor

I've been trying to make decorations for our front door for the different holidays this year and sadly have only successfully made one for Easter, well and now Halloween.
I got the idea from this blog. She used coasters and ribbon to make hers and I didn't have either of those, but was determined to make it without spending anything. 

I ended up cutting some thin wood leftover from another project and painting it. I actually free handed the faces (which I never do because I'm a perfectionist) and it took a lot for me to do that. I used some bamboo skewers for the spider legs, because I couldn't find any dead twigs. When it came time to glue it all together I realized I didn't have any black ribbon so I used some black flannel with interfacing between it and a D-ring for the hook. 

I'm really happy about how it turned out and the best part is that it didn't cost anything.
