With Spooky Season right around the corner now is a great time to figure out all your upcoming Halloween decorations. It’s also a great time to start gathering supplies for some fun Halloween DIY projects made specifically for Halloween.
I look forward to doing some DIY’s with my kid and I know he’s going to have a blast with it too. He’s at that fun creative age where he just lets his imagination run wild. It’s the perfect time to bust out the craft supplies for the season.
In today’s post I’m going to be sharing a bunch of fun crafts that we intend to do this year. I scoured Pinterest for Halloween DIY’s, looked through the comments and pictures in order to find the ones with the most successful completed projects.
While some of these projects absolutely require a bit of an artistic eye they are all simple enough that you should be able to pull them off too.
Halloween Paper-Mache Pumpkins
These pumpkins are a great Halloween DIY for decorations you can pull out year after year. They are super creative and you can create loads of them to decorate your front porch or house with. Plus the kids are going to love the creative sides of shaping the faces and painting the pumpkins.
Floating candles add a spooky and magical glow to a room, porch, or your haunted house set up. These are super easy to do and inexpensive. Simple save your toilet paper and paper towel rolls throughout the year to have loads of floating candles.
Cute Halloween Flower Pots
Can we talk about how kawaii these little flower pots are. They are non spooky and perfect for decorating a kid friendly home. Do this on large or small flower pots and decorate with mums or cute little succulents.
Skull Flower Vase
This skull flower vase brings me back to my goth/emo days. It’s actually a great Halloween DIY for your coffee table, end table, or dining table. Put them outside with a good faux flower on a table on your front porch too.
Hang these on your front porch, in a three seasons room, a haunted house, or simply from a chandelier like in the post. Add glow in the dark glitter – like one commenter – to add a spooky glow at night.
Looking for a spooky wreath for your front door this season. This is a fantastic Halloween DIY to add some glam goth to your Halloween decor. I’ve seen these skulls at my local dollar store so hopefully you’ll be able to find them too.
I love the idea of using old – or dollar store new – Christmas ornaments to make a bubbling witches cauldron for your front porch. Pair these with some witches legs made out of pool noodles and the luminary witches hats found later in this post and you have yourself a witch themed Halloween DIY decor.
Want to add more witched themed decor? These easy to create potion bottles are excellent for a haunted house or simply to add more spooky to your home decor.
This aged cauldron DIY is great for your front yard with a witchy theme. Or you can use it to hold all the candy you’ll be giving the neighborhood kids as they trick or treat. Pair it with the burning embers DIY below for that extra spooky effect.
This burning embers DIY is perfect for a haunted house or even just in your front yard where you can add some spooky effects. Pair it with a skeleton or a cauldron for an extra spooky look this year.
It’s him, your own little ghost for your mantle, as extra decor on your front porch set up, in a haunted house, or just to keep you company on your desk. The kids will love this DIY and probably want to keep them in their room.
Floating Witch’s Hat Luminaries
I love doing witchy themes for Halloween, if you couldn’t tell already by my decorations of choice this year. These witch hat luminaries are perfect for the front porch, three seasons room, or even hung in a haunted house.
Man Eating Plant
Finally, who doesn’t love “Little Shop of Horrors” reference for Halloween? Great one or more of these plants for your entire front yard. The DIY is easy to follow but if you are using plastic planters make sure you weigh them down with some stone or some other sort of weight to make sure they stay standing.
Fun with Halloween
As I’ve mentioned before, Halloween is a great time to get creative. You can let your inner child run with delight or let your children be as creative as they want. You can go spooky or fun depending on your style. These DIYs are perfect for you to do with your kids too.
