DIY Halloween Party Decorations
Decorating for Halloween can be a lot of fun – but you certainly don’t want to spend a fortune doing it. If you’re thinking about throwing a Halloween party this year, check out the following DIY Halloween party decorations for inspiration. You can use these DIY Halloween party decorations to give your home a spooky – and festive – atmosphere.
DIY Halloween Party Decorations Idea #1: Spider Webs
Although you can buy fake spider webs at the store, you can avoid spending any money at all by looking around to see if you have any cotton balls handy. Cotton balls – the kind that you might use to remove makeup or as a swab – can be stretched out and used to create a spooky, spider web look. Out of all of the DIY Halloween party decorations, spider webs are one of the most versatile ideas because you can string them up just about anywhere. Hang them from the ceiling, drape them over the back of the couch – do anything you’d like!
DIY Halloween Party Decorations Idea #2: Spooky Lighting
You don’t have to run out to the store and buy a fancy strobe light machine to enjoy DIY Halloween party decorations involving light. In fact, using just a couple of candles is all you really need. Be sure to put them somewhere safe, though, so that they aren’t a fire hazard during your party. If you have any oil lamps handy, those also make great DIY Halloween party decorations. They cast a spooky light in a natural way, giving the entire party an ambiance of ghostly delight.
DIY Halloween Party Decorations Idea #3: Jack O Lanterns
Pumpkins are very cheap to buy this time of year, since they are so plentiful. Buy an assortment of pumpkins of all different shapes and sizes, then have a few friends or family members help you carve them into wonderfully spooky jack o lanterns. Jack o lanterns are some of the best – and most enjoyable – DIY Halloween party decorations. They are equal parts colorful and festive. You can carve them into terrifying faces, or give them sweet and happy grins – the choice is entirely yours.
DIY Halloween Party Decorations Idea #4: Coffins
Real coffins are quite expensive, but you can easily put together your own fake coffins with a few pieces of plywood, a handful of nails and a hammer. Check with friends and relatives to see if anyone has any scrap plywood lying around for you to use. If you want, use spray paint to make the coffins black. Either way, these are great DIY Halloween party decorations.
DIY Halloween Party Decorations Idea #5: Tombstones
Create your own tombstones with creative sayings on them out of poster board or Styrofoam-backed paper. Placed them around the home to give your party a creepy vibe. Better yet, put the names of party invitees on the tombstones – they make great conversation pieces! These are DIY Halloween party decorations that you can have a lot of fun creating.
