Check out these 10 Halloween décor ideas that are guaranteed to illicit screams and laughter from your visitors.
- Easy-To-Do Halloween Lantern
Buy a black lantern, Halloween colored ribbons, and a clip on spider. Cut ribbons in different shapes, colors, and lengths then tie them to the top of the lantern. Clip the spider on the lantern to create a Halloween effect.
- Toilet Paper Halloween Characters
You will need toilet paper rolls, glue stick, and black felt for this project. Create faces by cutting various shapes out of black felt such as eyes, animal faces, monster faces, or jack-o-lantern faces. Squeeze a little amount of glue on one side of the cut-out faces and stick to the toilet paper roll.
- Mummified Halloween Pumpkin
To create this décor, you will need artificial pumpkin, cheesecloth, fabric stiffener, scissors, 1-inch googly eyes, glue gun and hotmelt adhesive, black acrylic paint, crafts knife, glow-in-the-dark gel paint, and paintbrush – this maybe the right time to use coupons to save on expenses in buying the stuff needed.
Cut into 4×12-inch strips cheesecloth and apply fabric stiffener. Wrap the pumpkin with the stiffened strips leaving the bottom and top uncovered. Allow to dry. Glue eyes to pumpkin. Cover portions of the eyes with stiffened cheesecloth diagonally. With a knife, carve a small mouth through the cheesecloth and paint the inside black. Apply glow-in-the-dark paint on the cheesecloth and let dry.
