7 Halloween DIYS You Gotta Try!

Posted Thursday, September 28th, 2017

It’s time to turn on the holiday spirit because Halloween is right around the corner! Don’t have any decor or tons of cash to spend at Home Goods? That’s okay because we’ve rounded up seven of our favorite DIYS that will be super fun to put together, and make your house the ghoulest one on the block!



1. Candy Corn Centerpieces:

Round up those old glass bottles around the house and get painting! You can finish them off with a cute bow on top or surround them with little tea light candles from your local dollar tree and voila, you have yourself a centerpiece even the spiders will gawk at! 😉 Thank you, Ashbee design!






2. Flying Bats:

This one is a favorite because all you need is one item—black construction paper! It’s a great DIY to make with your kids (old enough to safely handle scissors) and will instantly transform your house into a vampy hangout. Madeeveryday.com provides the free template and step-by-step instructions on how to do it.






3. Flower Pot Pumpkins: 

What’s better than making your own decor? Being able to use it over and over again! This project is sweet because you can store it away after Halloween and reuse it next year. It’s also great for little hands—under supervision of course.







4. Tissue Paper Pumpkins:

Fill these little guys up with candy, a cute note, vampire fangs (whatever you like) and surprise your little ones with them or give them out to your coworkers—the possibilities are endless and all you need are two items. Thanks, Onelittleproject.com!







5. Monster Door Decor: 

The Paper Mama really puts a fun twist on monsters with this bite worthy DIY. She provides the free mustache template and the rest is up to you! You can even skip the vampy feel and go more Frankenstein with it or even the classic pumpkin route…it’s completely up to you!






6. Cheese and Pretzel Broom Sticks: 

We couldn’t leave without a few good Halloween treats now could we? For this first one by One Little Project, tap into your inner Sabrina and pull out items you probably already have in your kitchen! These are great as party favors, snacks, or even in lunch boxes.







7. Hot Dog Mummies: 

Hot dogs and mummies…who knew they were a match made in heaven? This Halloween treat takes no time at all but will keep the whole family entertained and make for a great bonding experience. Follow Seakettle’s step-by-step instructions and you’re practically eating already!
