I see at the bottom of the cages, they are on boards. How did you secure them? Can’t wait to try this!
Actually, I just have the boards there to hold it down. You can use stakes to hold them in place – I just didn’t have any.
Though I am not ready for summer to end, I will make this project for our Halloween decor.
Make a cut about ¼ way up in a king-size pillowcase and use a sharpie to color some eyes and a mouth
Love this idea! It’s so perfect for a clumsy person like me.
When they get rained upon to they hold up?
Yes, they do! I am in Michigan and we get plenty of rain. The sheet dries just fine. Just use permenent markers and outdoor lights.
Thanks for the cutest ever idea! I was looking for a Halloween diy craft I could make with things I had on hand and these really are easy and amazing! Can’t wait for my grandchildren to see them!
