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.
Step 1: Purchase an indoor/outdoor needle-punch carpet. To turn it into a circle: Mark the rug's center point with a Prismacolor white-colored pencil. Measure and mark the distance from that point to a spot about half an inch from the rug's edge. Cut a piece of string to that length. Tie one end of the string to the pencil and secure the other end of the string to the rug's center point with a tack. Pull the string taut and draw a large circle onto the rug; remove the string. Cut out the circle, just inside the white pencil mark, with sharp scissors.
What can't you do with these posable skeletons? We have wasted literal hours scrolling through scenes that people have set up both on their lawns and in their houses. All it takes is a little creativity and time and they can take on all sorts of personality. We've seen prim and proper skeletons taking tea together with sun hats propped on their heads and funny frat skeletons doing a keg stand. Since they're life size you can pair them with whatever accessories you have on hand! Just a warning, when you get one you'll probably want to a couple more skeletons.

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. From twisted clowns and scary scarecrows to witches and horrifying zombies, our wide selection of Halloween animatronics means that you can find the perfect characters for your haunted home.
And hey, maybe you want to give your haunted house a more modern touch than the classic vampire mansion. We've got a fun collection of decorations that cling right to your appliances and doorways--how creepy would it be to see a demonic face trying to push through your dishwasher?! Or what about a bloody hand coming out of your toilet bowl? With wall and window decorations ranging from fun and silly to absolutely nightmarish, Spirit is here to help you create a home that's as fun or as scary as you want it to be. Wait, is that a skeleton on the toilet? You better knock before entering!
The head and arms are made from a heavy weight plastic, not out of foam. They are full human size with the face being 8" from chin to top of forehead. There is a concealed stake included to keep the head from blowing away and both "arms" are stakes. It will be a great add to any creepy Halloween graveyard. Just add a little mulch around it to give the appearance of crawling out of the ground. The color is darker than the picture and I like it!
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.
When the sun goes down, set a spooky scene with these dramatic lanterns made from simple supplies and our exclusive clip-art designs. Start by choosing one of the following templates—this creepy cat, this spooked feline, or a crescent moon—and cutting out the lantern template on the second page. Trace the template four times, side by side, on 24-by-36-inch heavy black paper. Using a bone folder, crease the sides of the template where they meet, and then cut it out. Print four copies of your chosen illustration out on onto vellum paper using a laser printer. Cut these pieces just larger than the frame "windows," and then tape the vellum into the frame.
Drum up excitement for the season when you dress up your house and yard! You didn’t think Halloween costumes were just for people, did you? Your house deserves a seasonal look as well. The ideas are endless. Dress up your home with anything from spiderwebs to graveyards scenes or skeletal sceneries. We’ve had a lot of time to think about making our neighborhoods more eerie during the holiday season. Scroll on through and get some ideas of your own! Don’t be afraid to get weird and silly. After all, this time comes but once a year!
Turn your front yard into a gothic graveyard with realistic headstones, graceful ghosts, and shadowy silhouettes. Tempt guests toward to your doorstep with a bounty of pumpkins and faux autumn botanicals paired with a skull-studded wreath, a dramatic spider's web, and an impish doormat. Grandin Road has all the outdoor Halloween decorations you're looking for to create the high-spirited house of your imagination, including pre-lit and animated designs that will delight trick-or-treaters of any age.
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. While we paired these creatures with scraggly black trees and a chic spiderweb pillow you can mix and match them as you see fit. 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!
The level of detail in this zombie head is amazing. The paint job on it was terrible and minimal. However a touch of acrylic paint in the shadows and fully color in the details on the eyes/teeth and this thing looks incredible. Best zombie head I've come across. If you have any inclination towards an artistic touch up and you will end up with something impressive. (Pictures show before and after.)
This is an easy Halloween door decoration idea if you’re a little busy this year or if you’re new to crafting. All you need is an old wood or plastic square or rectangular picture frame of any size, colored yarn and some tape to hold it all together. Choose from a wide variety of yarn colors – from white, black or yellow for a more traditional Halloween look to tie-dyed yarn for a more psychedelic vibe – whatever suits your mood. Weave your own spooky web and then hang it on your front door using some leftover yarn and a wreath hanger.
It's that time of year: Halloween decorations are going up all over the neighborhood, and no self-respecting homeowner wants to be outdone! Skeleton decorations are planted in garden plots, light-up zombie graveyard decorations are staked into the ground, and Halloween tombstone decorations are carefully arranged along walkways to greet the party guests.
This mix of geometric patterns, trendy colors and fun elements are SPOT ON.  So whether you are looking for Halloween decorations for your family or a larger event with friends ~ your tablescape is going to POP this year! Re-use items you have around the house, purchase items that are inexpensive to compliment what you have, order your centerpiece, and you’ve got yourself an amazing tablescape.  All gorgeous and semi-homemade!{score}
