How about a little Halloween Craft?
Protect yourself and your home by creating a Parshell.
Two sticks approximately seven inches long
String or tape to tie the two sticks together
Straw or Raffia (which can be purchased at a craft store.)
Attach the two sticks together at right angles to form a cross.
Beginning at the center of the cross attach a piece of the straw or raffia.
Begin weaving the straw or raffia in a clockwise motion around the cross weaving over one of the sticks and under the next.
Keep weaving until you have the last couple of inches of stick exposed. Secure your straw or raffia to the cross and you are ready to hang your new Parshell.
