3 Handmade Halloween Decorations that You Can Easily Make
It doesn’t matter if this is your first time to get crafty or if you caught the DIY bug only recently. Here are some homemade decorating ideas that you can easily put together. Crank up your favorite spooky playlist, get your crafty side into high gear, and create these awesome Halloween decorations!
1. Classic Horror Novel Door
If you’re a big fan of horror novels, try incorporating these creepy classics onto your Halloween décor by turning your front door into a horror novel door. To get started, grab some red, black, and gray kraft paper and cut them into long and thin rectangular pieces.
Next, draw the titles of your favorite spooky books on the paper. Use gold paint pens to outline the letters. You may use gold acrylic paint or a gold paint pen to fill in the outline before you attach the “books” to your front door with double-sided tape. Complete the look with a buffalo check doormat and two huge bushel baskets on both sides of the door.
2. Spooky Spider Wreath
Your guests will surely get the creepy crawlies at the sight of your spooky spider web wreath! Get that Halloween vibe going by grabbing a foam wreath form that’s about 14 inches wide and tying six pieces of white string across it. To create a central point, be sure to loop each one of those strings at the first piece’s midway point. This will make up the 12 spokes of the web’s base.
To create the web, have a long piece of string tied to the center point before you weave and loop it from the center out. Should you run out of string, all you have to do is to tie another piece of string to the end and keep on weaving. As soon as you reach the foam wreath form, tie it off at its ending point.
You can make your web look more realistic if you move the twine up and down to make uneven gaps in the web. Once you’ve done this, you need to wrap the foam wreath form with a white burlap ribbon before you attach your faux spiders. To hang this décor, loop a piece of white burlap ribbon around the wreath form.
3. Ghost Windsock
What could be more practical than turning recyclable kitchen materials into scary garden ghouls? To create this Halloween décor, you’ll need a large, clean tin can with its label removed, a hammer, an awl, black craft paint, white spray paint, white ribbon, a hot glue gun, a pair of scissors, some twine or fishing line, and a paperclip. First, you need to paint the cans white before you punch a hole in the can’s top portion with the use of an awl and a hammer.
The next step is to draw a ghostly face on the can before you start to fill it with black paint. Grab the ribbons, cut them into 24-inch lengths, and glue them around the tin cans. Cut a 23-inch long fishing line before you tie it in a loop for the hanger.
Use the paperclip to act as a stopper by threading on it. The last step is to pull the loop through the top portion of your tin can. Hang your “ghosts” in the garden and watch them move eerily each time a gentle breeze blows through them.
