Spook Sticks

Today's project literally took me five minutes to make.  You can sprinkle these "spook sticks" into your existing decor in seconds to amp up the Halloween vibe.  Accessorizes a flower bouquet to go from pretty to festive, tape them to the back of your television to scare your guests, or place them in a tiny glass with some pumpkins nearby.

The idea came to me when I saw that my fragrance diffusion reeds were spent.  So I gathered some scrap paper (the cutouts from yesterday's buntings) scissors and left over black streamer.

Next I doodled some iconic Halloween silhouettes like the black cat, ghost, bat and jack-o-lantern in pen and cut out two of each.  Then I coated the cut outs with a glue stick, placed the reed in the middle and closed the sandwich with the second copy of the cutout.  Last, I glued a couple of strips of streamer to the base of the of the reed and voile!

Quick, simple and easy as promised.  How's Halloween making it into your home?
