With drilled (rather than carved) pumpkins, your life is bound to be a hole lot easier. To make these fun designs, simply cut a hole in the bottom of a large pumpkin, then scoop out the pulp and seeds as you normally would. Next, mark your desired pattern with an erasable wax pencil. Using a medium drill bit, punch out a dotted outline of your image. Leave approximately the same amount of space between each hole, and you're good to go!
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.
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.
You could even lead your guests straight into your haunted home with a trail of lights to guide their way--the kids will love following the lights all the way up to your door! Or, if you want to focus on your home, then why not decorate your porch with Halloween lights? It'll certainly make your home the brightest one on the block! So whether you just want a few light-up decorations or you want to go all out with a Halloween light show, Spirit is here to make your Halloween as bright or as eerie as you want it to be.
Beautiful butterflies seem to float off the pages of a dusty old tome, growing as they flit around this library. You can make these creatures in different sizes for your display. You can print the butterflies using our three templates: One for an orange butterfly, another for red specimens, and the last for smaller varieties overall. Print them on heavyweight paper. Trim butterflies roughly, then use some spray adhesive to adhere them to black paper. Carefully cut out each butterfly.
One such idea for outdoor Halloween decorations is to decorate a large banner. The banner can be the full length of the door, or only a partial piece of the length. Since door decorations can be particularly inviting or scary, if there are little kids in the neighborhood, try to decorate a banner with something cartoon-ish. The banner should also reflect the personalities of those living inside. Fringes can also be added to the banners – whether it’s pom-poms or straw. For a fun twist, candy stickers and funky texts can be added if a drawing is not your speed.
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.)
