- Paper bats via Made Every Day
These paper bats couldn’t be simpler to make and everyone will love sticking them all over the house (even outdoors). Don’t forget to cut some to slightly different sizes and place at different angles for your very own realistic bat cave.
- Yarn pumpkins via One Little Project
Like the best DIY Halloween decorations ideas, these simple yarn pumpkins can be reused every year and you’ll find most of the supplies at the dollar store. You can make them to whatever size you like by adjusting the size of the balloon frame – plus you can string them together to make a garland. You could even make a version of this project using white yarn balls, finished with a black felt face, for a Jack Skellington look!
- Ghost cake toppers via Tell Love and Party
Any store-bought cake will become the stand-out spooky star of your party with these friendly apparitions emanating from it. All you need for this topper is some wire and a few other basic craft supplies that you probably already have at home.
- Jack Skellington door via Twin Dragonfly Designs
With a free printable template, this is an easy project with everyone’s favorite Halloween movie character. Whilst this looks best on a white door, we think it would work on a lot of other pale colors too!
- Spirit jugs via Eighteen25
If you have a few old spirit jugs lying around, this is what to do with them. These ghostly lanterns could go either inside the house or in the yard. Using battery-operated Christmas lights means you don’t have to worry about wires poking out and ruining the effect.
- Making tape hands via Makezine
Bring the zombie apocalypse to your back yard with a project that every Walking Dead fan will love. Plus, we’re suckers for any DIY involving glowsticks.
- Giant yarn spider web via Made Every Day
If you don’t want a huge clear-up operation afterward then these yarn webs are a better alternative to cotton wool cobwebs, plus they look so artsy! Having them a little uneven is all part of the charm which means that you don’t need to worry about perfect knots either!
- Paper spiderwebs via Skip To My Lou
For an easier alternative, these paper spiderwebs are the simplest of lazy Halloween projects, plus, they fold up small to store and reuse next year.
- Mummy front door via Honey and Fitz
Wrapping your entire front door to mummify it might take a little time but the adorable results are worth the effort. It’s just the thing to go with our Mummy Halloween hand pies. Kids will love it – and it’s super inexpensive too!
- Handwashes via Little Bins for Little Hands
Even your sink can get in on the act with these horrifying haunted handwashes!
