DIY Spooky Halloween Decor

Don't forget to stop by and Like my Facebook Page! DIY Vintage Chic.
I stumbled across this while looking through Better Homes & Gardens website. I'm still working on a few details so stay tuned...



Materials
Foam Board
Tape
Magnets
BGH suggests cutting out the shapes on foam board and simply taping them to your garage. Maybe it works if you're in a warmer climate but here in the STL our nights have been dipping down into the 30s. I quickly discovered that the tape would not hold. :( A few sites suggested using magnets so I bought this from Michael's.
I asked the hubby if we had metal garage doors and he said yes. But when I tried to stick the magnets to the door they wouldn't stay. I asked him again if he was sure it was a metal door to which he replied, well it's aluminum... so magnets won't work. :( So I'm trying to find something else now.

BHG has a few free patterns. I found a few more through Martha Stewart. Good luck and let me know if you find something that works!

Thanks for stopping by!
