DIY Halloween Decorations for a Spook-tastic Season


1. Skull and Bones

All next-level Halloween decor need to have the truly spooky elements: a skull, bones, and bloodshot eyeballs! There's no reason to buy expensive store-bought decor when you can simply do it yourself. Kids will definitely have a great time painting their own skull and bones, too!

2. Rotting Corpse Scarecrow

Corpses evoke an otherworldly and spooky thrill! Put this creepy rotting corpse scarecrow outdoors and send chills down your trick-or-treaters' spines as they approach your haunted manor.

3. Spider Nest

It's not Halloween without spiders everywhere–creepy crawlies are a staple of the season. These clever spider nests make use of white stockings, cotton or polyfill, a baseball, and plastic spiders.

4. Haunted Specter Mirror

Mirrors are definitely another spooky element this Halloween. We've all let our imaginations run wild with spooky mirrors at one point. With some supplies and a few easy steps, you can have a haunted specter mirror that's sure to give your party guests that one memorable fright.

5. Floating Witch's Hat Luminaries

How do you keep them afloat? Everyone will be dying to know. These floating witch's hat luminaries will make your home the talk of the neighborhood, simply because they add a bit of ghoulish magic to your porch.

6. Creepy Bloody Pillar Candles

Now here's a truly unsettling DIY project for all the candle-makers out there. Light these creepy, bloody pillar candles up in a dark room, and you've got a truly blood-curdling conversation starter. It's perfect for Halloween night dinners!

7. Glow-in-the-Dark Pumpkins

These are not your ordinary Jack-o-lanterns! These glow-in-the-dark pumpkins might not be fresh, but they surely add a glowing, otherworldly look to spruce up your Halloween decorations.

8. Bat Branch Centerpiece

Nothing says Halloween quite like a flurry of bats. Make your own bat branch centerpiece to decorate your home. Though it requires a couple of key supplies such as bat cut-outs, branches, and a cylinder vase, the end result is worth all your time and effort. A must-have decoration if you are hosting a frightfully fabulous event!

9. Halloween Poison Bottles

If you're dressing up as a witch, this is the perfect Halloween decoration for your home! After all, what's a witch without her bottles of potions? You can get creative with the labels in this one. There's no need to buy additional materials at the store, as you can simply be creative with whatever you've got lying around.

10. Glowing Eyes

Let your kids' creativity flourish with these DIY Halloween crafts! Let them create and cut out the design while you achieve the glowing eyes with some LED tea lights and ping-pong balls. These will make great additions to both indoor and outdoor decoration!

11. Sugar Skull Wreath

There's nothing wrong with adding some flowers and ribbons to your Halloween ensemble. I don't know about you, but I think felt flowers add a little color to the somber season. This sugar skull wreath is sure to be a welcome change from all the blacks, whites, and grays of the holiday.

12. Trick-or-Treater Greeter

Your trick-or-treaters will surely have a happy Halloween if they are greeted by Big-boned Al at your door. For an even bigger surprise, tug on his strings and see him move around–that's sure to make the kids giggle and squeal. Who wouldn't want a friendly trick-or-treater greeter on their front porch?

13. Spooky Painted Doormat

Entice your Halloween party guests to enter if they dare! Liven up your entryway with this spooky painted doormat that will surely give your guest a spooky thrill. It's an understated but effective decorative piece you'll be using for years.

14. Halloween Luminaries

Your kids will surely be glad to lend you a hand in making these easy-to-make DIY Halloween decorations. Get your creative juices flowing with these Pottery Barn-inspired luminaries.

15. Trick-or-Treat Topiaries

These trick-or-treat topiaries are sure to help put all your Halloween candy to good use. These are truly sweet and colorful additions to your DIY Halloween decorations. They look almost too good to eat!

16. Pumpkin Patch Wreath

Hang this pumpkin patch wreath on your door, against a wall, or anywhere in your home. With a little hot glue, faux pumpkins, and a bit of your creativity, an ordinary wreath could be the star of your ultimate DIY Halloween decorations.

17. Ghost Terrarium

Halloween doesn't need to be scary. Why not have your own pet ghost at home? Kids will spend hours designing little ghost friends to place in their new home. This ghost terrarium is a great project for youngsters who aren't quite ready for big and scary ghouls.

18. Skull Candle Holders

Here's a project that elevates cheap, store-bought plastic skulls into spooky and sophisticated candle holders! These are sure to look impressive on your Halloween tablescape. Nobody would ever know it's a DIY project!

19. Spooktacular Full Moon

Everyone knows the goblins and ghouls come out when the moon is full. An old pillowcase, embroidery hoop, and a light source are all you need to create this spooktacular full moon that will definitely cast a chilling glow over your front porch.

20. Candy Corn Garland

What's Halloween without candy corn? With its distinct orange and yellow colors, candy corn is a classic Halloween treat. A few scraps of felt and some fall foliage makes this super cute candy corn garland.

21. Witches' Brooms

DIY Halloween decorations don't need to cost a pretty penny. Fallen branches, some tall grass, and stalks of weeds make up this DIY witches' broom. The materials basically cost you nothing! These cheap outdoor Halloween decorations are the perfect way to turn some trash into a treasure.

22. Skull Vase

Looking for a chic way to spook up your Halloween party? Check out this sophisticated skull vase décor, which is made using a foam skull and some paint. Honestly, I think the finished product looks like an expensive designer piece. This is for anyone who wants to put some oomph into their Halloween festivities.

23. Eyeballs in a Tree

The hardest part of this project? Getting up in the trees and putting these eyeballs in place. Get plain white beach balls and transform them into eyeballs in a tree to give your trees some quirky personality. If you don't have a tree around, any household plant will do, too!

24. Zombie Hand

Turn a regular photo frame into a zombie attack with this nifty, three-dimensional project idea for zombie lovers. This DIY project takes no time at all, and you can get creative with how you paint the zombie's hand. Add some gashes, cuts–make it as gruesome as you like!

25. Floating Candles

A Harry Potter fan? Transform your house into a perfect venue for Halloween celebrations with DIY Harry Potter floating candles. Freely floating in the air with a bright golden flame that will never die off! Isn't it amazing?

26. Mason Jar Monsters

Mason jars are affordable, reusable, and best of all–perfect for DIY Halloween decorations! These mason jar monsters are a great project for pretty much anyone, from little kids to craft newbies. Making them will be a cinch!

27. Mummy Pillow

Who says mummies can't be cute? Add some coziness to the Halloween season by making this quick project. Pillows are, after all, one of the easiest ways to add seasonal flair to a room. You can even make several to make an adorable mummy family in your living room!

28. Easy Halloween Garland

Looking for something quick and simple? This easy Halloween garland might just do the trick. Who knew bright-colored yarn could be used to make pumpkins, ghosts, and spiders?

29. Cheesecloth Ghosts

Cheesecloth and fabric stiffener are the two key materials to make these clever standalone ghosts. You can also attach them to strings to hang them up from the ceiling. The kids can help out by drawing and sticking on the facial features! Place these up on bookshelves, the mantelpiece, even outside–anywhere that needs a little ghostly cuteness.

30. Melted Crayon Pumpkins

Here's a project sure to add a bit of color to your decoration! This DIY melted crayon pumpkin makes use of crayons to make wacky colors on an actual pumpkin. It's a great way to make use of broken crayon pieces that you'd otherwise just throw away. Melt whatever color you fancy!

31. Crystal Ball Candlesticks
