Make a big bang with a tumble of pumpkins studded like the starry bands of the Milky Way. Pick a few to be part of the inter- stellar arc, then hollow them out from below and punch holes in them using a drill and two different-size bits. Have fun with the placement of your planets and stars—random patterns have universal appeal. Arrange them with a few uncarved gourds, tuck battery-powered candles inside, and imagine a galaxy far, far away.
Halloween can be scary, sure. But the thing is, it can be really funny too! Our life-size posable skeletons are a great way to crack people up as they pass your home. These particular boneheads are having some good ol’ family fun with the help of our skeleton stands. Tailor this idea to whatever your family likes to do. These posable skeletons are always funnier in groups. Maybe arrange dad at the grill while pre-teen Tommy sits on the porch playing on his phone while making wise cracks about his teenage sister’s pale cranium. That may seem accurate yet difficult to represent but we believe in you.
Jaunty jack-o'-lanterns, foreboding bats—these are Halloween-appropriate versions of the classic paper-doll chain. To make it, print our template onto card stock, fold the paper to its width, trace, and cut it out. Then, use scissors for the outline, and a craft knife or hole punch for facial features and smaller details. Intersperse with fringed garlands to add color.
A large wooden plank is usually an obstacle. However, not this Halloween. A DIY Halloween door decoration this is not. This is a porch decoration. Spray paint and stencils is one way to create this spooky welcome sign. Or the letters can be purchased from a woodworking shop or other area and simply nailed on in the right order. These Halloween house decorations are quite a pop from the traditional ones found in stores, and can be painted in colors to reflect the personality of the family. Who wouldn’t want that?
Sure, a jack-o'-lantern or two is nice—and certainly classic!—but haven't you already been there and done that? This year, it's time to step it up a notch in terms of both originality and spookiness. Whether you opt for something more traditional (think: a few painted pumpkins, pots of fresh fall flowers, and a fall wreath or two) or aim for something a little more advanced (a DIY array of festive lanterns could be nice, or a pair of eerie-looking "floating hats"), we can practically guarantee there's something on our list for you.
This is quite involved for outdoor Halloween decorations. Black foam creates the background. After the background has been cut, cut foam boards into irregular board shapes. Since they don’t look like wood, a wood grain tool is used once the foam has been painted gray. It has to be done when the paint is wet. Then arrange them on the background as you like. For cartoony zombie arms, use store bought skeleton arms and paint them a bright, neon green. Painting the ends that will connect to the foam background black will help give the impression that they really are coming out of the shadows. Eyeballs are created using ping pong balls cut in half and neon green paint pens. To hang it up, add picture hanging wire on the top and a suction cup hook on the window.
Not every Halloween has to be dark and dreary! Light up the night in style with our wide selection of Halloween lights! Make your house glow a haunted green or a spooky orange--or just add to the eerie atmosphere with whichever color you want! You can decorate your home with string lights, and light up the night for a frightfully fun Halloween party that everyone is sure to remember! Or, if you want to show off your own scary skills, then you could have a spot light to focus on any of your horrifying scenes.

Weave your own spooky web and then hang it on your front door using some leftover yarn and a wreath hanger.

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.

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.

Windows always come into play in scary movies. In horror movies, a villain first appears by peering into the kitchen window when the main character’s back is turned. In ghost stories, some pale ghost girls is always peering out the attic window in a room that no one has ever been in years. It makes sense to incorporate windows into your Halloween display. People walking past your house are sure to get a shiver when you hang our window accessories in your house. Scroll on through our window decorations and you’re sure to find a few looks to bring your house decorations to a whole new level.

You can get as detailed as you want with this project – from the shoe selection to the number of cracks in the wall – it’s all up to you. The plywood base is painted a matte black. Use foam core to simulate broken plaster – align to create a circle – and now you have the dark hole.

A giant spider that dangles overhead requires very little legwork. To begin, use wire cutters to cut eight 26-inches pieces of wire, and then cover the length of one wire with a piece of double-sided tape. Unroll your streamers onto tape and cut them to the proper length; turn the wire over and repeat the process on the other side. Then, create a half-inch fringe on the sides of the streamers using fringe scissors—repeat the process on the other legs as well. Finally, open up a flutter ball and poke your top end of each leg into the ball, securing with tape. Suspend the ball from the ceiling using filament wire.
While blow up ghosts and plastic skeletons dressed up can cost a lot, taking a simple plastic skeleton can create such an interesting effect. Cool Halloween decorations follow plastic skeletons everywhere. An old white dress can be purchased from a thrift shop or found in your closet. White tulle or mesh can be purchased as well for a fuller look. If the dress is too long for the skeleton, use leftover fabric to create a veil. A spooky Specter bride is preceded by pumpkins as she walks down the aisle – which is your front porch and steps in this case. It doesn’t even have to be a bride. It could simply be a ghost!
