Decorating For Halloween
Decorating for Halloween is about enjoying the spirit of the season, but spooky decorations don’t always agree with every budget.
In this article, you’ll find four of the most creative ways that you can DIY your Halloween decorations this year – both indoors and outdoors.
Four Spooky DIYs
Hanging Spider Webs
Spider webs are a tried-and-true classic when it comes to Halloween decor, but you’ve never seen them done like this. For an eerie, creepy-crawly look, use white pantyhose (or tights) and put small plastic spiders on the inside, with large ones on the outside. To give them some weight, place a white faux egg or a weighted balloon inside – it will look like a large egg sac of hatching spider eggs! Hang from the ceiling and watch people freak out.
Mummy Jar Lanterns
These friendly little mummies can light up your porch, your window sills, your mantels, or anywhere you choose. To get started, all you need is a glass jar, two googly eyes, and white tape. Stick those googly eyes on, then grab your tape.
Starting at the bottom, wrap your tape loosely around the jar – remember, leave the eyes uncovered! After you wrap, let your googly eyes dry and drop a small LED tea light inside your jar.
Lit-Up Milk Jug Monsters
If you have a big family, you probably go through a record amount of milk per week. You can use that to your advantage during the spooky season!
Collect your used gallon milk jugs, wash them out, and grab a Sharpie. Draw whatever face you like on the front of the jug, then pop a tea light inside. Line these guys up on your front porch steps as a ghoulish welcoming committee!
Eyeball Mason Jar
If you’re hosting a Halloween party, these are great decorations to place around the house. All you need is a mason jar, red food coloring, and a bag of zombie eyeballs.
Fill up your jar with water, almost to the top, then drop in a moderate amount of food coloring. You want it to look like blood, but you don’t want the water to be opaque. So, add the coloring slowly!
After the water is sufficiently red, drop in your zombie eyeballs and screw on the lid. Voila!
