With Halloween around the corner, and many decorations already up around the neighbourhood, here are some DIY ideas:
Add some spider web to your Halloween decorations and haunt, you can find it at most stores selling Halloween products. Just attach to something and pull it out all over! There’s a new product called “Cob Webs in a Can” that lets you add light layers of spider web effects to your Halloween decorations and props.
Put up a Halloween tree in your home this year! It really adds a festive mood and looks beautiful!
Try out some creepy Halloween cloth! Used in commercial haunted attractions for years, distressed, tattered, torn and shredded looking cloth can make your home look deserted and dilapidated. You can find it at most mass retailers during Halloween season.
Transform your front door into extremely spooky portals of doom with door frame facades and trim! You can find a variety of them both online and in Halloween stores.
Scarecrows have also become a source for wonderfully scary Halloween decorations! Make a couple for your front porch, yard haunt or to sit inside your home for decoration.
Create a lighted jack-o-lantern walk-way to your front porch! It’s easy to do, all you need are some plastic jack-o-lanterns and some battery powered candles.
Use mini ears of Indian corn, mini pumpkins and gourds to embellish your Halloween party table. They make excellent arrangements for an autumn table as well.
If you live out of the way, build a giant Halloween beacon to draw trick or treaters to your house. Its easy to make using a large plastic jack-o-lantern, some ABS pipe and a few assorted attachment pieces. This light really stands out!
You can find all kinds of Halloween flags and banner during the Halloween season. Hang one or two up around your house to show your Halloween spirit!
Make some Halloween wreaths to hang on your front door and around the inside of your house. They are simple to make and fun to do!
Add artificial ravens and crows to the tops of tombstones, in the trees, anywhere they can sit and stare at your visitors. You can find them at most arts and crafts stores, department type stores, just about everywhere!
Decorate your vehicle for Halloween! Hang a wreath or decoration on the front grill, have a Halloween slogan license plate holder made, make an antenna ball out of a little pumpkin!
