Cheap Homemade Halloween Decoration Ideas
Homemade Halloween decorations do not necessarily take a lot of time and money to complete. A colorful paper garland is perhaps the easiest last minute idea for your home. A homemade Halloween wreath can decorate your front door and it will be a lot of fun making it. You need black and white face masks, bows, ribbons that you can attach to each other either with pins or with adhesive. Halloween Decoration can be in the traditional colors for this holiday, but you should not limit yourself to them. Surprise your guests with a playful decoration
Cardboard and color paper will help you craft amazing homemade Halloween decorations. Stylized or realistic silhouettes of mice, cats, bats or other creatures made of black cardboard are suitable and can be the perfect decoration for the staircase, or the window. A few pumpkin lanterns will turn your porch into a spooky backyard and will drive away evil spirits. Pumpkins are an easy table decoration too –fill them with flowers, leaves, decorate them with nuts or gold spray and you will most certainly create a real eye-catcher. Use a simple blackboard to write spooky messages and decorate it with artificial cobweb, use Halloween paper lantern templates to craft original and interesting lanterns for your porch. Do not forget to ask help from your kids and family and turn the decoration of the home into a festive activity.
Make an Eerie Entrance
Take your door from boring to boo-ring with a scary grapevine wreath, pumpkin pillars and a pair of jack-o’-luminaries.
Set a Spooky Buffet
Dish out your smorgasbord of desserts in shiver-inducing serving pieces, like a split-open plastic skull. Display homemade sweets along with classic Halloween candy, wrapped in layers of tulle, under cloches and on cake stands for a decrepit-cabinet-of-curiosities effect. Sinister crows in secondhand cages add the final touch.
Punch Up Pumpkins
Flowers in fall shades transform any hollowed-out gourd into a wow-worthy centerpiece. The secret to a long-lasting display? Tuck a water-filled vase inside.
Perfect the Tabletop
Dress up the dinner table with a fast autumnal centerpiece. Just coil craft-store wire vines around gourds’ stems, then weave in a faux ivy garland for extra greenery.
Create a Cast of Characters
Last year’s costumes can dress up this year’s decorations, or mummify traditional jack-o’-lanterns with a dressing of kitchen cheesecloth.
Warm the Hearth
Move pumpkins off the porch and into a less-expected locale, like an unused fireplace. For these graphic gourds, use painter’s tape to mark off geometric designs. Then spray with glossy black and white paint, and casually pile in the hearth.
Cast a Shadow
Create a mesmerizing 3-D glowing effect with a simple carving trick. Etch into (but not through) the top layer with either a lemon zester, clay loop or a linoleum cutter.
Pile on the Pumpkins
Bigger is better, right? So go for broke with a porch full of glowing jack-o’-lanterns. Enlist the kids to draw on their designs for additional carving inspiration.
Fix Up the Foyer
Give your guests the gift of spook as soon as they enter your haunted house. A bouquet of batty branches alongside decorated votives and candy-filled treats set the perfect party mood.
Display a Trio of Tombstones
Here’s a good excuse to get out the glitter. Shimmery “skeleton” pumpkins rest in peace on a macabre mantle.
Set the Mood
Put mini pumpkins to work as votive holders for a flickering fall table. Snap off each pumpkin’s stem, and position a candle in its depression. Cover with a clear glass hurricane shade and insert floral U-pins to hold the shade in place
Go for Gourds
For a fireplace display that can stay up until turkey time, drape a trio of pinked printed-fabric squares atop the mantel, and weight them down with an assortment of colorful gourds and leaves. So add height with reusable silk ginkgo branches (or the real thing) in glass cylinder vases.

Cut Out a Costume
Trick out your jack-o’-lanterns in these bewitching handmade masks. Just download one (or all three!) of our easy cut-out templates.
Fake Phony Paintings
Turn a mantel into a ghostly gallery by photocopying 19th-century portraits (these are from a Civil War history book) and mounting them on somber, coal-colored mats.
Assemble a Ghostly Figure
Give “dressed to kill” a whole new meaning with a pumpkin-headed specter. Carve a grimacing jack-o’-lantern, then carefully attach it to the top of an old dressmaker’s dummy. Drape the mannequin with tattered-looking cheesecloth and position in the foyer to greet your guests.
