Create giant gothic lanterns using nothing more than our instructions, clip-art designs, and simple supplies. First, print out all of the following templates: this snake lantern, another spooky snake option, and the frog lantern as well. To begin, cut out one of the lantern templates, and trace it four times, side by side, on black paper. Use a bone folder to crease the areas where the sides meet before cutting it out. Print four copies of your chosen design onto vellum using a laser printer, and then cut each piece just larger than the frame's windows. Tape the vellum into a frame, and form into a lamp shape before taping the edges. To finish, cut a 26-inch length of wire and twist a loop in the middle of it; poke the wire ends through the paper to make two holes at the edge of the lantern. Use pliers to roll ends of wire to secure; and then use monofilament to hang two battery-operated votive candles, taped end to end, inside the lantern. Finally, use twine and a removable advise hanger to suspend the lantern in your chosen space.
This Halloween door decoration is not for the faint of heart, but if you’re imaginative, crafty and enjoy a challenge, then this decoration is just for you. Purchase a pair of mannequin legs and decorate with paint or cover with a pair of old stockings. 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.
Nothing will bring your haunted scenes to life quite like one of our Halloween animatronics.

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 crepe paper, duct tape, and paper plates have one thing in common, it’s that they can create wonderful Halloween front door decors. Pick up some crepe paper in any color that contrasts your door and hang strips from the top of the door. The paper plates become the eyes when black circles are drawn on. Duct tape them on the door. Then use the duct tape to create eye brows and a mouth. Style it however you want. Kids across the neighborhood will enjoy looking at your creepy monster, and it’ll be a hoot to create if your own kids help. Even if you don’t have kids, this monster gives the creator one great time while putting it up.

Frankenstein saw inspiration in the most grotesque of scavenging—here, we took a note from his book and constructed a bare-bones table decoration. The table legs are legs indeed—store-bought faux bones. To make it, trim the thigh bones: Use saw to cut the legs to 1 inch less than the desired table height (to account for tabletop). Next, stabilize the knees: Take each leg apart at the knee; unscrew the hardware, and remove the kneecap. Connect shin bone to thighbone with one double-threaded screw (3/16-by-3 inches). Lastly, stabilize the ankles: Position one foot so it rests flat on the floor, and generously squeeze epoxy into the hinge that makes the ankle flex. Repeat with the remaining legs. Let it dry and cure overnight at least before moving onto the next step. Attach the legs to the table: Decide where you want the legs, and drill pilot holes through tabletop. Place each leg underneath the pilot hole, then screw to attach. Put putty over the screws, and let it dry. Sand until smooth. Paint the tabletop a skeletal white.

Here, you'll find anything and everything to do with Halloween skeletons and Halloween skulls: Life size skeleton props, animated skeleton props that play instruments for the dance of the dead, glow in the dark and light up lawn skeletons, and skulls that glow, talk, or simply serve cupcakes at the buffet.
All kids like to play pretend. That’s what Halloween is all about. Your little one will feel like their house is protected by a fierce beast when this inflatable dragon is in your yard. Make Halloween more creative than ever with Medieval flair. This is perfect for families who like to dress as knights in shining armor and ancient, wise wizards. Not only will this giant dragon be a landmark for the whole neighborhood, but the whole family can pose in front of it before heading out for trick-or-treating. Year after year, it’s sure to cook up some timeless memories.
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.
Sometimes, there's safety in numbers. But this Halloween, there's fear—and fabulousness—in a flock. To summon a swarm of nocturnal nomads, use our downloadable template to cut out your own—stick on removable adhesive dots, bend the wings for extra eeriness, and let 'em loose. To spook-ify your nearby windows, mirrors, or your fridge, use vinyl clings instead of paper cutouts.

Welcome guests inside your home – if they dare – by creating this unique front door decoration for Halloween. Little trick-or-treaters will be amused and a little bit scared by your imagination and creativity, while most parents will find it downright funny. Stuff the striped socks with newspaper to create a little depth and added bulk. Use a worn-our pair of pointy-toe heels to finish. Any mat will do as long as it inscribed with a warm greeting (it’s not as funny without the warm greeting). This fun front door decoration never gets old as most people have seen The Wizard of Oz at least once.

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.
