Haunted Stråla Woods

Materials: Ikea Stråla, black spray paint, scissors, X-ACTO knife, yellow tissue paper, painters tape

Description: I had the idea to repurpose an old white Ikea Stråla Christmas light that I had in the attic.

So I came up with the idea to turn it into haunted woods. I first wanted to cut a ton of eyes into the trees and back them with yellow transparent paper to make the eyes glow but it was so hard to cut out tiny eyes in this really thick paper that I quickly realized ghosts would be a much better option.

I drew the shapes of the ghosts on the pine trees and cut them out with scissors and an X-ACTO knife. I also have a house peeking from behind a pine tree. Then I taped the ghosts and anything else that I wanted to keep white and spray painted it black.

Now I have “Haunted Woods” for my kids, who love Halloween!
