Steps: 

1) If you are like me and can't find any “O” letters at your craft store, you will have to start by cutting the tail off of your “Q” letters :)

5) Finally, draw whatever Halloween sketches you want!  Trust me, I am no artist, and I managed to draw a spider, some spider webs, a tree, bat, a witches hat and some ghosts.  You can do it, I promise.
