It’s already that time of year! You know, when we decorate our homes with ugly, terrifying Halloween decorations. I love it! I try not to be too distasteful, but there is just something strangely fun about having creepy things dressing up my home; even if I only get one month!
My kids enjoy the projects more than anything, so I try to make a few things every year from home. Although I enjoy being all artsy and stuff, I also like quick and easy. It should be FUN, right!? I’ve rounded up a few of my favorite DIY Homemade Halloween decorations that the adults and kids will love! They are all pretty painless but also very effective.
Toilet paper rolls and glow sticks? Well, yes, if you want to scare all of the cute little trick-or-treaters. Of course you do. Just hide them in your bushes, shrubs and trees, and watch as your glowing eyes terrorize the neighborhood.
What better way to give your trees a little personality? The hardest part of this project is getting them up in the tree (that’s what husbands are for), but the rest is quick and easy! Just go check out Anna’s Instructions and link to where you can buy the white beach balls.
Quite impressive, I must say! Yarn, double sided tape and Karen’s hilarious instructions are all you need to pull off this faux spider web. Oh, and maybe a few spiders, too.
You’ve already got the lamp, so why not add a few silhouettes to spruce up your Halloween decor? It really doesn’t get much easier or cheaper than this! And, you probably already have the supplies on hand.
Candles are one of the easiest ways to add a festive atmosphere to any home for just about any occasion. Round up a few jars and get creative with paint, tissue paper, decoupage, tape and permanent markers. You can easily make them to match your Halloween decor, and the kids will really enjoy making them with you!
7.Halloween Window Decor
If you want something that really stands out this Halloween, window silhouettes are easy and really impressive! You can purchase them at party stores or make your own cut-outs on black paper or cardboard. I purchased a few of these a couple of years ago, and after it’s attached to the window with a bit of tape, that’s all you have to do is turn your lights on! I’m going to do some experimenting on the windows by my front door this year with black birds and tree branches.
I’m not suggesting that you paint your door green, but this Frankenstein door is too cool! The project itself will cost you under a buck, and for the ease and low cost, it sure does create a big impact!
