Under $5 halloween craft

I wanted to make a halloween craft and I had this idea come to mind. At first I thought i would get wood and cut it out with our jigsaw. but this was faster and cheaper,since i'd have to buy wood. But, this project would be a lot more durable and last for years if you used wood instead of cardboard. Either way though I love how it turned out and I am thinking i'm going to hang it o our pantry door to see every time we come in the kitchen!


-2 cereal boxes
-halloween colored scrapbook paper
-modge podge
-foam brush

-draw the shape of a pumpkin on the back of a cereal box
-cut out shapes

-change the shape of you stems because you know just rectangle stems will be easier to cut out of the scrapbook paper
-trace pumpkins onto scrapbook paper and cut out

-modge podge paper onto pumpkins,stems, and sign, let dry
-tie ribbon onto pumpkin
-hole punch to attach jute
-cut out letters and glue onto sign (i cut out my letters with my moms QuicKutz but you could stencil, print them off the computer or even just write them)
-when letters are dry modge podge over the top of them.
-hang and admire
