Hey, I’m back! Last week, I took a short hiatus, seeing as it was school half term holidays. We took our daughter away for a week in our caravan and had a fab time! Now, we’re back to our normal daily activities. And I’ve just realised that Halloween is tomorrow and I don’t have any Halloween decorations ready!
I’ve been looking out for easy decor to make that I can create quickly today. If you’re in the same situation as me and need to whip up some Halloween decor quickly, take a look at these ideas below from around the web…
1. Paper Bats Decoration
These bats from ElsaRblog are something I can definitely make today – and I’m sure my daughter would love to help! If you have some black card to hand, you can quickly use the template on this site to create your bats. (Page may need translation).
2. Skull Rocks
Do you have any large pebbles in your garden? Painting skull faces onto them is an easy craft to do. Stand them on your mantelpiece or on a small table outside to dress up the entrance to your home. See the tutorial over at Crafts by Amanda.
3. Floating Ghosts
No Halloween setting is complete without a ghost or two, right? And ghosts are pretty easy to make, if you have access to a white sheet and black marker pen! If you want to take your ghost making to another level, check out how to create the illusion of a floating ghost in this great tutorial from Sadie Seasongoods.
4. Woodland Owl Pumpkin
I’ve got a pumpkin ready for carving tonight and I might give this woodland owl design a try. It’s not super scary, in fact, it’s really quite pretty! Who says that Halloween pumpkins should always be creepy anyway? If you fancy making more of a charming type of pumpkin this year, check out this tutorial over at Welcome to Nana’s.
5. Halloween Flower Display
Following the theme of attractive Halloween decorations, a purple and orange flower display could be a nice touch to add. Pick them from your garden if you have the right colours, pop to your local florist or check out an online flower delivery company like this one here for example.
6. Spider Web Tablecloth
I’ve seen a really cool idea that won’t take long at all, providing you have a piece of black fabric, a fabric marker pen and some bleach! This is for a spider web tablecloth that looks just brilliant! See the tutorial over at The House That Lars Built.
7. Ghastly Mirror Cookies
Ok, so these aren’t Halloween home decor as such, but I think a tray of ghastly cookies will add a little spookiness to any home. This one will probably involve a visit to the supermarket first to get your ingredients together! See these fab cookies over at The Simple Sweet Life.
Another idea I’m thinking of is to make a giant cobweb from a black bin liner. Take a look at this handy video on how to make one. All you need is a bin bag, a sharpie pen and a pair of scissors!
Well, looks like I’ll be busy this evening getting our home ready for tomorrow night’s trick or treating fun!
Hope you like these ideas. Before you go, take a look at some of my other Halloween projects you might like to try out at some point…
