Dolloween series day 2: DIY Outdoor Decor

Hey guys! Today is day 2 of my Dolloween series! Sorry this so so late! I have been so busy lately! Anwyays, i will be showing you some how to make some outdoor, doll sized d├ęcor! I hope you like these DIY's!

Your will need: hay, two sticks, a hot glue gun, scissors, a black marker, thin cardboard, white paper, orange and black construction paper, six Kleenex's, three small balls, orange string and white yarn, and two different shades of green crayons.
First get a handful of straw/hay.
Cut one end of the handful the same length.
Insert your stick into the middle of the hay, and wrap a piece of your white yarn around it a few times, then tie a knot in the back to secure it.
Trim the ends and you're done! I made two of them because I thought it would look a lot cuter!
Cut a rectangular piece of white paper, the size of a big doll sized poster, and fold the edges in and glue them down.
Then, get your black marker and write "Witch parking only! Violaters will be toad!" on it. Haha! Get it?! Violaters will be toad (towed)?! I didn't get the joke until after I actually made it! Dumb blondes! ;P  I thought this was sooo cute when I found it on the Internet, that I had to make it into doll size to share with you! Draw a little toad for a little extra cuteness!
Cut out some tombstone shaped pieces along with a strip that is a bit longer than the actual tombstone piece for each one.
Write whatever you want on them with a black marker, and glue them onto their bases.
Place two Kleenex's over each other like shown, and place a ball in the center
Fold the Kleenex's around it, as shown, and tie an orange string around it. Draw on eyes with a black marker.
Cut a little hole through the Kleenex at the top of the ghosts head and hot glue on a string in that hole.
Draw some bat shapes on your black construction paper and cut them out. Cut out two pumpkin shapes on orange construction paper and draw on pumpkin details, then write Happy on one of them and Halloween on the other. Draw pumpkin stems on white paper, color them green, cut them out, and glue them onto the back of your pumpkin. And you're done!

Photostory time!!!

"Is that enough decorations yet?" Lanie sighed as she picked up the pumpkins she had just made. 
They had been working on decorations for over an hour, and were getting tired of it.
"Ya, that should be enough. We were voulenteered for this job anyways, if we are tired of this, then I say we stop!" McKenna responded.
So, they gathered up their decorations and took them outside.
As soon as they got outside, McKenna dropped all her decorations as if they weighed 100 pounds!
"What did you do that for?" Lanie raised her voice, startled. "You're gonna ruin all our hard work!"

"Oh, I am not! Everything is fine! Now, lets get to work setting these up." McKenna said, annoyed.

"Fine!" Lanie said, and got right to work setting up her favorite decoration.

"Can you hand me some tape?" McKenna asked.
"Sure, here you go!" Lanie said, giving her a piece of tape.
"Thanks! Now I can hang up this little bat!" Exclaimed McKenna.
"Yay! This is the last thing we have to do!" Said Lanie, excitedly, wanting to see the finished product.
They each got a few piles of leaves and scattered them around!

When they were finished, they stood back to admire their work.
The finished product!!!!
The girls were super happy with their work!

Love this! ;)
