Stop Failing at Halloween

Stop Failing at Halloween

It has come to my attention that many people in my neighbourhood do not know how to decorate for Halloween. It seems that the only thing most people really know how to do is Christmas.

Folks, stretchable spider web is NOT garland. You don’t wrap it around trees. You don’t string it between things in thick ropes. You don’t put it up in clumps unless you’re making a spider egg sac.

Do not use any colour but white unless you plan to have a blacklight on it. Seriously. It looks stupid. Spider silk is universally white regardless of the type of spider.

I know this is a cheap decoration to buy, but if you’re not planning on using it properly, don’t bother. Take the time to stretch it out like it’s supposed to be or leave it on the shelf and get yourself some streamers.
