Every year we do a huge Halloween haunt setup in our yard. We have a big fenced in graveyard, lots of ghosts and skeletons, and a lot of other DIY Halloween props that we’ve made throughout the years. Last year we made these really neat hanging Halloween lights that are solar-powered and made from mason jars and this spooky Halloween fabric that is dyed and cut to look like Spanish moss. They have a great organic, kind of “swamp” feel to them which goes perfectly with our New Orleans theme. Since the Halloween lanterns were such a hit last year, we made a few more this season (with a couple of upgrades) and this video shows you how to do it!
