  1. Ghost garland via Taryn Whiteaker
    We’re making this ghastly ghost garland for sure! You can buy string lights from so many places if you don’t have them already and you can use old white pillow covers for the sheets!

  3. Window silhouettes via DIY Network
    All you need for these easy window silhouettes is some black cardstock and a printer, or simply trace and cut the shapes you want. If you wanna go all out, you can make some giant ones with the help of a print shop that can be reused every year.

  9. Dripping blood candles via She Knows
    If you don’t have a dropper for these classic dripping-blood candles, you can use red taper candles instead. Hold them over the white pillar candles and let the melting red wax drip down them for the same effect.

    Get the haunted house look with none of the waxy mess left behind
  11. DIY ghost wreath via Spirals and Spatulas
    Even though this project involves buying a grapevine wreath (if you don’t already have one), the fact you can use it year after year makes it a good investment. The lil’ white ghosts are super cute but you could also use bat shapes, a witch cut out, or even some Jack Skellington faces – whatever floats your boo-shaped boat!

  13. Floating Halloween candles via Consumer Crafts
    These Harry Potter Great Hall-themed floating candles are easier to make than they look! If you don’t have LED tealights, you could use full length LED candles, however using the cardboard and tealight combo means you can choose the exact length you want for them and they are easier to hang.

If you wanna kick back after all your hard work, check out our list of boozy Halloween drinks. They’re frightfully good.
