Call me crazy, but there’s something super fun about decorating your home with ugly and terrifying Halloween decorations! But, unfortunately a lot of decorations I see are just sooooooo cheesy. I mean, come on, we can do better than that!! So, today you’re in for a real treat because I’ve scoured the web for some awesome Halloween DIY projects that you can make this weekend!
Tastefully Horrifying Halloween DIY projects
This idea is taken from a neighborhood Halloween post, but look how great these boarded up windows look? You could use some old pallets and nail them together and temporary attach to your actual window frames. Spooky.
Grab an old sheet or purchase a cheap floor runner. Using some red paint, you can create a murderous display of bloody feet entering your home. Have dogs? How about some bloody pawprints too?
Make a ring-around-the-rosie scene of lawn ghosts! All you need to do is poke a Styrofoam ball through the top of a fence stake or dowel, stick it in the ground and cover with white fabric or cheesecloth. I love this because it has great visual impact, but it’s easy to store away after the season!
Have some old Halloween costumes lying around? Why not use them as decorations? Drape your old costume over a simple wooden stand (if it were me, I’d make a wood base, then use a 4×4 about 6′ tall, and screw a board into the 4×4 perpendicular around shoulder-height. If you don’t have old costumes, you can still make these particular ghouls with some black fabric and a dropcloth from the big box store.
