It goes without saying that Chistmas is the most wonderful time of the year, but Halloween is certainly the most fun.

All the spooky decorations definitely give us the creeps sometimes, but they also inspire us to try to create crazier and scarier stuff every year.

Chas from Chas’ Crazy Creations is sharing two of her most successful Halloween decorative pieces, which, by the way, happen to be budget-friendly!

In collaboration with Hometalk, Chas is showing us on video how we can scare our neighbors this year by having a witch’s legs popping out of the bushes, and pumpkin luminaries to light the walkway.

For the witch legs, we are only going to use our legs, some saran wrap, duct tape, some pool noodles, pillow stuffing, orange duct tape, a pair of tights, and a pair of shoes.

This craft really is very simple and easy to do. It only takes some patience because it can be a little time-consuming.

First of all, take the saran wrap and simply wrap it around your thigh, then all the way up to the waist so it doesn’t fall down, and then back to the thigh and all the way to your heel.

Next, use the duct tape to cover your leg- thigh to heel- making sure that you don’t wrap too tightly.

Then, it’s time to remove the “cast” you’ve created.

Using a pair of scissors, just make an incision where the heel is and move a little bit up so that the cast can easily slide down and be removed by your leg.

Use some more duct tape to repair any damage you’ve made while trying to take it off, and then stuff the fake leg with pool noodles and pillow stuffing.

Cover the whole fake leg in orange duct tape, and then apply the tights.

Repeat with the other leg and use a pair of shoes to complete the witch legs. Have them pop out of the bushes, maybe using some fake spider web to perfect the look.

Don’t they look fantastic???

Besides the amazing idea for witch legs, Chas is also sharing her spooky pumpkin luminaries that are easy to make, too.

For this one, you’ll need a broomstick, a plastic pumpkin, a witch’s hat, a glue gun, a pool noodle, some Halloween lights, and some duct tape.

To put it together, you’ll need to remove the handle from the stick and place it into the grass. Then, take the orange pool noodle and decorate it with duct tape, kind of like a candy cane.

Put some glue on the pool noodle using a cold glue gun so the noodle doesn’t melt, and stick the pumpkin on it.

Then, take the lights and put some inside the pumpkin and the rest of them around the broomstick all the way down.

Put some more glue- using a hot glue gun this time- at the top of the pumpkin and stick the hat on. Optional final touch, a halloween bow for extra spookiness!
