For DIYers, Halloween often means opportunities to create new projects -and to eat a lot of candy, of course-! These tinktube DIY Halloween decorations in the shape of a body will let you decorate your front porch however you like!
- Dress up the body structure with a witch, a ghost, or a scarecrow costume;
- Fix your candy bowl to the body, for a contact-free way to give them out;
- Disassemble the project after Halloween to create something else or keep it until Christmas and dress it up as an elf!
