Our Favorite DIY Halloween Decorations

We’re only a few weeks away from Halloween, and you’re probably already seeing lots of Halloween decorations go up around the Salt Lake City neighborhoods. If you’re looking for a way to decorate using some crafty skills and just a couple of dollars, this is the blog for you. Here are our favorite DIY Halloween decoration ideas to get you ready for the spooky holiday.

Spider webs in the yard

This easy to make Halloween craft is perfect for adding a little spookiness to your yard. Using a balloon, some plastic spiders, and hot glue, you can create this fun and scary look.  

Black cats

These black cats are not quite what they seem. Select different sized pumpkins and paint them black with a shiny finish. Carve classic cat eyes and add ears and tails to finish the look. Once you light up the eyes, passerby will definitely stop and look twice at your front porch.  

Floating witch hats

Your front porch will look positively wicked with these floating witch hats. Use simple fishing line to hang them, and attach battery operated candles inside to illuminate.  

Eyes in the bushes

Give trick or treaters a little extra scare with these eyes in the bushes craft. Simply cut out various eye shapes from paper towel or toilet paper cardboard, and place glow sticks inside to illuminate. Arrange them strategically in shrubbery, bushes, and trees to give Halloween goers that eerie feeling that someone is watching them.  

Front door with attitude

Make your front door truly expressive with this fun DIY project. Gather up construction paper, streamers, and paper plates of all different colors and go wild with your idea. This is a perfect project to include kids on because it’s easy, fun, and there’s no wrong way to make it!  

Pumpkin bowl

If you’re hosting a Halloween party this year, create a one-of-a-kind bowl to serve drinks out of. Just cut a pumpkin in half, take out all of the seeds and goo, and fill with ice. You’re ready to relieve your guests’ thirst and they’ll be pretty impressed with your creativity too.   Do you have any other Halloween decorating ideas? Tell us about it on Twitter!
