Halloween Crafts & Decorations
Eerily easy Halloweens crafts, decorations, DIY costumes, and more.
Find center of a 300- to 500-page book. Fold 50 pages on each side toward center to create body. Continue folding 50-page sections inward for wings. (Use hot-glue to secure.) Spray-paint black. Insert two long nails in wall, spaced the width of the "wingspan." Place outer folds over nails to display.
Braid three pieces of black rope and secure one end with black tape for a tail. Secure 16-gauge steel wire to the back with tape. Paint a wooden spoon black; cut off all but 1" of handle and tape to non-tail end of rope. Use a white paint pen to draw eyes, then add pupils with a black pen. Glue a 2" strip of red ribbon to underside of spoon. Cut triangle in end of ribbon.
Bare-limbed trees provide the perfect ghostly perch for jack-o'-lanterns, LED candle lanterns, and a flock of faux black crows (don't be surprised if a few real ones alight).
Don't confine pumpkins to the ground: If your porch has a stable overhang, like the one pictured here, use a ladder to elevate your display by placing a few mini pumpkins overhead.
Too busy to decorate for Halloween? Just set a few un-carved pumpkins out on your doorstep and arrange berry branches cut from your yard inside vintage tin buckets. Done!
It doesn't get easier than this: Simply hang this black lace panel inside your screen door to give trick-or-treaters a friendly fright.
Create a classic country vignette on your front porch for Halloween by arranging hay bales, mums, pumpkins, and dried corn stalks around your steps. Fake spiderwebs add a not-too-scary touch.
Craft an oversize spiderweb above your front porch with clothesline style rope or simply tying together strands of white Christmas tinsel garland.
A perfect way to light the path to your front door on Halloween night, these frosted luminaries can be made with alphabet stickers and glitter blast spray paint.
Use orange juice, lemon-lime soda, pineapple juice, and orange sherbet to create a fizzy drink that kids will love.
