At our house, we love things that glow.  Can you believe ping pong balls can make glowing eyes for your pumpkin? If you have a yard light, black tape easily turns your light into a jack o lantern.

Outdoor Decor

Be the talk of the neighborhood with these climbing skeletons.  These will wow your neighbors.


To let yourself and your little trick-or-treaters enjoy the spook of the festival, add a bit of that ooey-gooey element to your Halloween decor this year by constructing your very own spider egg sacs that hang at your entrance in the most creepy manner. All you need to collect is your old white tights, some large and small plastic spiders, baseballs and a hot glue gun to bring this amazing project to life. 


These dancing ghosts look extra creepy! You can whip these up and keep them up all month long. These don’t cost a lot of money to make and use from year to year.

Candles are one of the easiest ways to add a festive atmosphere to any home for just about any occasion. Round up a few jars and get creative with paint, tissue paper, decoupage, tape, and permanent markers. You can easily make them match your Halloween decor, and the kids will really enjoy making them with you!

Recycled baby food jars turned into jack o lanterns are a fun Halloween craft. If you don’t have baby food jars, glass votives from the dollar store work great!

    Lovely ideas and decorations! I love the tin can idea - very practical as we all have tons of the at house and we don't know what to do them.
