You’re not alone if you think October made a hasty entrance this year, but it’s time to face facts–Halloween is just around the corner. Luckily, we’ve got you covered with a list of perfectly festive (and equally cheap) DIY Halloween décor ideas. These decorations will look right at home on your doorstep or inside to transform any room on the Halloween party circuit.
Halloween Tin Can Luminaries
Up-cycle your old coffee tins—or any size tin can, for that matter—for these quick Halloween Tin Can Luminaries, tutorial courtesy of Jolly Mom. The black paint contrasts with the glow from the candles, leaving you with a bright decoration to draw the trick-or-treaters to your doorstep.
Funky Ombre Pumpkins
The Funky Ombre Pumpkins from Funkytime simply call for acrylic paints, spray paint, cotton balls and pumpkins. The ombre style is easier than it looks, and you can always paint your own patterns on the pumpkins to personalize them.
Jack-O-Lantern Chalkboard Mason Jar
The Jack-O-Lantern Chalkboard Mason Jar by We Heart Parties is an adorable project that anyone can make, including kids! Have fun with this craft and write a creepy Halloween message, or draw white ghosts on the jars for a cute variation.
If you really want to impress your guests with chic-but-unique Halloween décor, then you’ll love these Glittered Pumpkins from Yesterday’s Sweetheart. You can paint orange pumpkins, or you can just buy white decorative pumpkins and glitter away!
Canvas, paper, mod podge and paint are all you need to create this spooky Tree Silhouette by Crafted Niche. This décor is out of the ordinary and lends itself well to an Edgar Allan Poe reading, perhaps?
Spider Web Burlap Wreath
Brit + Co offers several tutorials on burlap Halloween crafts, but we especially love this Spider Web Burlap Wreath. The wreath will quickly transform your house into a haunted manor, but the craft itself is easy and is done in three simple steps.
Pumpkin Spice and Everything Nice
If you’re really in a pinch for time, print the Pumpkin Spice and Everything Nice poster from The Diary of Dave’s Wife for a simple, yet welcoming decoration. Attach it to wooden chopping board, or cover over some framed art you already have displayed—and voila!
Skull String Art
A Beautiful Mess explains how to create Skull String Art using just wood, nails, paint and string. While this project may require a little more patience, the end result is a one-of-a-kind work of art that could be used year-round if you choose your design just right.
Halloween Magnetic Spiders
These Halloween Magnetic Spiders from Delia Creates can be made and displayed in a matter of minutes. You can display the creepy crawlers on a magnetic door or fridge, and you could even use tape to stick these spiders to another surface around the house.
Milk Jug Ghosts
These Milk Jug Ghosts from I Save A to Z could potentially be made without purchasing a single new supply. Save some milk jugs and bring out your Christmas lights for a quick, fun Halloween decoration.
