1. The easiest indoor pumpkin decoration

I made these pumpkins last year for Halloween. It takes less than a minute to create but looks fun! Just buy some decorative pumpkins, take a black marker and start drawing the faces on! They are for indoors because, of course, you cannot light them. But I think they look cute and they take no time at all to make.

2. Huge Spider

This colossal spider makes for a scary and very easy-to-make Halloween decoration. I’m not fond of spiders very much, so for me, this one works quite well.

3. Halloween Zombie Jar

You can make some cute zombie jars with just some bandage and wobbly eyes. You could put a light in it, or candy or a candle or whatever else you might think of.

4. Ghost Lollies

These ghost ollies are pretty cool as a Halloween snack for a kids’ Halloween party. They are made with coffee filters, small rubber bands, thin ribbons, and a marker.

5. Scary snacks

With a black marker, you can turn food into scary monsters in no time. Whether you use mandarins, eggs, or ‘boo-nananas.’

6. DIY Halloween Candy Ghost

Sadie Season Goods made this cool candy bowl ghost. She used a thrift shop sewing bucket for this project, but I think it will work just as well with a bowl put on a simple stool, with a sheet thrown over it. Glue some black pieces of cloth or paper onto the sheet, and you have your ghost ready.

9. Hanging Paper Ghosts

I love these hanging ghosts. They are very easy to make. Just cut out a snail-shaped ghost, like in the picture below, and draw a ghost face. You can make a friendly ghost, like in this example, or go for something a bit scarier.


10. Creepy Bleeding Candles

Take a red candle, light it, and drizzle it on top of a white candle. That’s all! So easy but pretty cool!

11. DIY Witches’ Brooms

Turn some dead branches and some weeds into these excellent and free witches’ brooms. Just tie the weeds to the bottom of the branches with some string using a simple whip knot. If you don’t live near where tall weeds grow, you could also use smaller and thinner branches instead of weeds.

12. Spiderweb doormat

Turn a simple black doormat into a Halloween Decoration by drawing a spiderweb onto it with a white marker and spraying it with a clear finishing spray.
