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.

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.

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.
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. The tumbling gray tombstone and angry zombies crawling out of the aged ground in this scene is sure to cause shrieks and squeals as people pass by. To create this look, arrange our submerged zombie props and grave stones throughout the yard with hay layered around the base of each piece. You’ll find it easy to make your home into a horror show for the whole neighborhood to enjoy.
From needing to find Halloween decor to having to make sure you have some scary awesome Halloween ideas, it can be difficult.

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.

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.

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.
Using wood and spray paint, make teeth for your house. The teeth are free handed to create a menacing look. There are edges on the sides to hold the teeth up so that there is no need to use nails. Permanent markers are used to mark out the teeth on the wood before cutting them out. Spray paint in white, red, and black is used to create bloody gums and tips of the teeth and decaying teeth. The eyes are created with card board and permanent marker (in two shades of whatever color). Red is added and voila! Hang them up and your house is ready to eat anyone alive. Halloween front door decors have never been so creepy, or so versatile – this makes a great addition to any haunted house.
