Decorating for Halloween doesn’t have to be time consuming or expensive. With a few do it yourself holiday decorations, you can create a spectacularly spooky display. Gather some basic materials, and try out some of these easy DIY decorations for the Halloween season:
Easy Window Decor
Make a window display that will be sure to attract attention. With black poster board and scissors, you can create creepy cutouts like bats, cats, and pumpkins. Make them large enough to fill in different areas of your front windows. Simply tape them into place from the inside. You can also add a string of orange or purple lights to enhance the display in the evenings.
Add some spooky ghosts to your lawn and garden using an old white sheet and a few Styrofoam balls. Just cut up the sheet into smaller squares. Take each piece of white cloth, add the foam ball to the center, and then tie it off with a rubber band. You make different sizes and use twine or string to hang them from trees and shrubs. They’ll blow in the wind and give your home a ghostly and ghastly appeal.
If you don’t feel like you have great crafting skills, that’s okay. You can use natural touches to make a beautiful do it yourself fall display. Use pumpkins, gourds, and dried corn with corn stalks to create attractive arrangements. A bale of hay can serve as the base for pumpkins. Add colorful mums in baskets. This is the perfect way to dress up a front porch or front steps for Halloween.
With these easy ideas, you’ll be able to have homemade Halloween decor that’s both easy and affordable. It’s a great way to add simple seasonal touches to the exterior of your home in the fall.
