Tips for Halloween Decorations

  1. Use cheesecloth to create a ghostly effect by draping it over furniture or hanging it from trees. Spray with glow-in-the-dark paint for an eerie glow.
  2. Create “potion bottles” by filling old bottles with colored water, veggie oil, glitter, and random objects like plastic spiders or fake eyeballs.
  3. Cover doorways and windows with stretched-out cobwebs made from cotton batting or dryer lint pulled apart.
  4. Make giant spiders out of black trash bags stuffed with newspaper and pipe cleaners for legs.
  5. Hollow out pumpkins and use them as lantern holders for pillar candles or string lights.
  6. Carve other fruit and veggies like apples, squash, or melons into Jack-o’-lantern designs.
  7. Swap out regular light bulbs for colored ones or cover them with cellophane for an instant spooky vibe.
  8. Fill latex gloves with popcorn kernels and tie them off to make gruesome “severed hands” to scatter around.
  9. Drape indoor plants with fake cobwebs and plastic spiders for a haunted greenhouse effect.
  10. Make DIY tombstones out of styrofoam painted gray and write silly epitaphs with permanent marker.
