Decorating your home for Halloween doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg to look fantastically creeptacular. Get ready to spook up your home with these simple and fun DIY Halloween decorating ideas.
What you’ll need:
- Pumpkins of all shapes and sizes
- Black and orange balloons, candles, wool, tulle and ribbons
- Black spray paint
- Googly eyes
- Black permanent marker
- Styrofoam balls
- Scraps of white material
- Plastic spiders
A Halloween decorating necessity is, of course, pumpkins! The more the better. Carving jack o’ lanterns is a classic Halloween pastime. Make sure to get friends and family to join in on the fun and see who can make the creepiest one. Once you’ve carved your pumpkins, a simple solution to add more to your decorating is to draw scary faces on your pumpkins using a thick black permanent marker.
Another simple Halloween decorating hack is to purchase inexpensive fake plants and spray-paint them black. To make sure that your entire house and front porch gets a spooky makeover you can hang black and orange balloons, set out black and orange candles, cover furniture in black tulle and ribbons and stick googly eyes on anything and everything. You can also take an old Christmas wreath and cover it with bandages to give it a mummified look. Finish it off by adding googly eyes to it as well. You can also cover throw pillows with your bandages.
You can create your own spiderwebs out of black and orange wool and add a few plastic spiders to complete the look. These will look great on trees and walls, both inside and outside.
To make your own ghosts, wrap and glue scraps of white material over Styrofoam balls, you can add googly eyes to them and hang them up everywhere using string.
