1. Witch Hat Trick
Spray paint plastic traffic cones in black and add buckles cut from paper or self-adhesive glitter sticker paper, then line your driveway with these hats.
2. Hanging Witch Feet
Use plant wire to make witches’ feet dangle from a tree. These can be done DIY with pool noodles, striped tights, and dress-up shoes attached.
3. String Light Pumpkins
Set your stoop alight by stringing white outdoor holiday lights around regular pumpkins by the front door.
4. Bannister Bats
These will be a fun addition to your stairs that will flutter as you walk up or down. Use a bat template and felt, and cut out the pieces for bat bodies with the heads. Tie at least 6 inch long pieces of monofilament line around the middle of each body. Hot glue two pieces of hole-punched paper to the head for the eyes, then stick the head to the body. Tie your bats to the railings and trim access monofilament.
5. Paper Pumpkin Wreath
You can easily make a pumpkin wreath for your front door. All you need is orange, black, brown, and white paper. With some thin wire, you can hang it from the front door on Halloween.
6. Spiderweb Wine Bottles
Give your red wine bottles a spooky flare by adding a spiderweb design with a white paint pen, or even typex, to the bottle’s exterior.
7. Pumpkin Candles
Brighten your place by cutting out holes at the top of pumpkins, then fitting drip candles in them, and simply placing them on display.
8. Ghostly Wine Bottles
Recycle your empty wine bottles by turning them into candlestick holders and adding a spray-painted ghostly face. Line them up on a mantel display.
9. Pumpkin Stack
Instead of just leaving one cut-out pumpkin by the front door, carve out a few pumpkins to make a tower of spooky and smiling pumpkins.
10. Pumpkin Tin Lights
To make these festive lights, simply draw a pumpkin design on a metal can with a permanent marker, then fill the can with water, and freeze it to keep its shape. After that you will need to use a nail and hammer to poke holes in the design, leaving less than a centimetre between the holes. On the top, poke holes on opposite sides for the handles. Once the water has melted and the can is completely dry, apply orange spray paint and leave it to dry. Lastly, cut a 24-inch piece of wire and wrap it around a marker pen, then stretch it out and hook it into the holes on either side of the top.
Most of these Halloween decorations can be made from supplies that you already have at home, or can be bought from an inexpensive craft store. These Halloween decorations can be a lot of fun to create and set up, and you can even involve the kids to help out. Their rooms can also be decorated with any of these ideas, maybe even matching their costumes.
