From needing to find Halloween decor to having to make sure you have some scary awesome Halloween ideas, it can be difficult. However, having quality decorations – or scary Halloween decorations – can be a real scare of a treat to make. It’s no wonder that DIY has become the cool thing to do for decorations for Halloween. From front door jazz and funky garage door ideas, there are so many different things that can be created on a $100 budget. Some can be created for even less, making DIY Halloween decorations a much more attainable goal for this year than it may have been in years past.

Create this arm-bone frame to display our clip-art sea-life print or another suitably spooky work of art. To make your own, download an illustration of urchins and coral. Take the file to a copy center to have it printed full-size (24 by 36 inches). You can choose a print of your own in a similar size instead. Using spray adhesive, adhere the print to foam board. Since you will not need the shoulder blades, unscrew them from the arms. Determine placement of arm bones: Place them on foam board, so their elbows are at the corners and hands reach along the sides. Anchor one arm at a time to foam board: Using a tapestry needle threaded with monofilament, and starting on the back side, sew through the foam board, loop monofilament over a bone, then push the needle back through; knot. Repeat a few times in the same spot. Then repeat this stitching in several other spots along the arm.

The iconic striped socks in this decoration evoke memories of watching The Wizard of Oz with a bowlful of popcorn. Keep the memory of Dorothy and her band of misfit heroes alive with this colorful Halloween door hanger. To create a realistic look, you can stuff each sock with old newspaper, other socks or old T-shirts. Choose two different colors of tulle to create contrast and visual interest. Black and yellow works well, as does black and orange, or white and orange – dark colors provide greater contrast against the striped socks. Use a hot glue gun to hold each piece together.

To eerily embrace the Halloween season, one must also embrace its history. The Celtic folklore believed the souls of the dead come back to life and walk among the living on Halloween night.  To make these “souls” feel right at home, many get into the Halloween spirit by decorating their homes and yards with tombstones, skeletons, ghosts and grim reapers. 
The grimmer, the better! Nothing screams "Halloween" quite like scary creatures dangling from tree limbs and rafters, or animated Halloween decor poised to startle trick-or-treaters and party guests. Strategically placed, motion sensor animated props can quickly an ordinary haunted house or graveyard scene into something truly extraordinary, worthy of comments, admiration, and imitation. 
For some, the best part about Halloween is decorating your home inside and outside. Whether you want spooky Halloween decor full of skeletons, blood, and gore, or simply want glitzy pumpkins to let everyone feel the Halloween cheer. We've got you covered! Find Halloween props for your fireplace mantels or gigantic inflatables for your lawn. Fill up your yard with tombstones and zombies for the ultimate graveyard feel to your outdoor home decor. Kids and their parents won't be able to help but embrace the spooky season with these Halloween decorations!
When it comes to Halloween ideas, nothing seems to reflect the holiday better than barren trees with crows flying around. A removable tree decal can really help set the mood for the holiday. While decorated pumpkins and porch signs can create the mood, a large tree can really add a helping branch. Crow decals can add life to the tree, and stuffed crows on the banister of the porch can add even more to the life of the tree. If crows aren’t your style, fake leaves can be drawn on paper and added to the tree – which would then make a really cool party game.
Transform the inside of your home with eerily creepy Halloween accessories to create the perfect scary setting. Mood lighting gets a spooky twist with LED black willow branches or mini votive candles, perfect for a grown-up Halloween party or any other Halloween entertaining. Show of your spooktacular Halloween spirit with a howling wolf rug, metallic skulls and some Dia de los Muertos decor. Toss in a few festive throw pillows for an instant update..

There’s no way we’d want to get caught wandering through this scene when the sun goes down. Now that we think about it, we wouldn’t want to get caught here at high noon either.

You’ll find it easy to make your home into a horror show for the whole neighborhood to enjoy.
If you want the perfect jump scares, then consider an animatronic that's motion or sound censored. Imagine the look on a trick-or-treater's face when they reach for candy in a bowl on a dummy's lap, only for the creature to come to life when they get too close! Or have one of our "bump and go" animatronics roam around any room of your home, or down a long and ominous hallway.

These craft tricks aren't too spooky—most are tame enough for younger ghouls and goblins who would enjoy them throughout a Halloween event. From floral elements to furniture that you can temporarily modify, there are many how-tos to get you in the spooky spirit. Using crafty essentials like hot glue and shears, you can create essentials like cobwebs and other visual effects for tabletops, bookcases, lighting fixtures, and even staircases, which can be transformed into a trick-of-the-eye rodent landscape with a pair of scissors and craft paper in all the right places. If you want to up the scream factor, try making a a modified mirror, which can become hauntingly eerie with just a few additions. While twinkling candlelight casting mysterious shadows is a mainstay on front porches for trick or treaters, you can bring these elements inside too with handmade lanterns that can be made a few days in advance. 
If you want trick-or-treaters to come a knockin’, you’ve got to have front door appeal. There are so many ways to amp up your entries. There’s the traditional wreath with a Halloween flair. You can choose window clings, spooky draping cloths, and gory garlands. And hey, if you really want to get weird you could even put a zombie hand on your front doorknob. It’s so horrifying we wonder why this product even exists. But it does, and you can get it from us! That’s what Halloween merch is all about, right?
I am beyond disappointed with this thing! It is so cheap looking I'm actually embarrassed to give it to my aunt as a Christmas gift! Thanks a lot for being super misleading in the photos!!! The fabric on the sleeves are already unraveling and it's like they were in a hurry painting the eyes and teeth with white paint or a 3 year old did it or they put it in their machine half A$$sed. There's not even a black pupil on the eyes. The white is NOT even on the eyes or the teeth its like way off. VERY DISAPPOINTED AND EMBARRASSED! Luckily I have an artistic friend who will take care of it. And there's no instructions or anything on it, just a cheap looking hand and head in a plastic bag...... EMBARRASSING!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Do you have a case of arachnophobia? We get it, eight legs, twelve eyes, and sticky webs are enough to give anyone the creeps. But we’d like to think you can grow to love these spiders. They come in different sizes so you can get together a whole family of these fuzzy creatures.

Use the classic super stretch spiderweb to create the spider’s home or make your own costume web with our fancy-schmancy (but not at all hard to use Webcaster Gun. As we said in the intro, when it comes to Halloween, take your décor as far as you want!
October is a weird month. It’s a season of colorful skies and leaves. But it’s also a month with misty, cold mornings and dark, scraggly trees. It’s fun to mix and match the elements with Halloween décor. A glowing graveyard scene looks plenty cheerful in the light of day, making little kids hoot and holler in holiday excitement as they head home from school. But then night comes along and your little scene will remind the adults walking about of the fear and excitement they felt when they were children. While Christmas décor might inspire folks to go home and drink cocoa, your décor will make people want to curl up in front of their favorite horror movie under a cozy blanket. Sweet or spooky, it’s all about getting into the holiday spirit!

No matter how you want to party this Halloween, Spirit is here to make sure you're partying in style all season long!
While hanging a full door covering can be difficult, making a mummy on your door is completely worth it. Bandages or paper tape can be used to create an opaque white sheet on your door. Black construction paper can be cut into a mouth and pupils for the eyes. White construction paper is used to create the corneas of the eyes. However, make sure you leave the knob and whatever locks are on the door uncovered – otherwise it’ll be a scary situation. The best part about this fun Halloween front door decoration is that the bandages can be as thick or as thin as you want them to be.

Cast a sinister glow over any setting with a cluster of white tapers dripping with "blood" (actually red candle wax). Fill a cup or a small pail with sand, and plant white candles inside so they stand upright. Light a red candle and tip it over the white candles so the wax drips down the tops and sides, being careful not to burn yourself. Let wax cool completely before removing candles from sand.
