Are you ready to decorate your home for Halloween? Some of the store bought decorations are so expensive I thought I’d roundup some of the best DIY decorations I could find and share them here with you. I hope you and your kiddos have a blast with these super easy Halloween Decorations for kids to make!
Easy Halloween Decorations for Kids
- Halloween door decor – I’ve never thought of dressing up my door before but what a wonderful way to greet trick or treaters!
- Kid friendly lantern craft – These lanterns are made from plastic cups and LED tea lights and would make a wonderful Halloween decoration all decked out as pumpkins.
- Trash bag spider webs – These huge spider webs look so effective stretched across a window, and I can’t believe they’re made from trash bags!
- Book page pumpkin – I know some people don’t like to cut up books, but if you can find one that’s really past it’s best (or even the telephone directory would work) then these pumpkins do look fabulous.
- Pottery Barn inspired Halloween garland – Have you been tempted by the garlands in Pottery Barn this year? They’re always gorgeous, but so expensive. Which is why I wanted to share this tutorial for you, so you can make your own version at home for a fraction of the price.
- Mummy candy cans – Oh these candy cans all dressed up as mummies are so adorable, they would look great on a Halloween party table, or just make some with the kids to store their candy stashes in.
- Halloween mason jars – If you have some spare mason jars this is the Halloween decoration craft for you. They look cute all lit up with their fairy lights.
- Spooky bat chandelier – Oh wow this is just the most amazing Halloween decoration idea I’ve found so far. It looks so effective and is really not that difficult to make either.
- Pumpkins carved with a drill – Wow, it really is crazy how much difference it can make carving your pumpkin with a drill. These would look wonderful on your doorstep this Halloween.
- Window silhouettes – This Halloween decoration is so simple, but if you make one for every window on the front of your house it will look amazing!
- Halloween tea towels – Don’t forget about your kitchen this Halloween, these tea towels are so simple to make but you’ll be using them for years to come.
- Dollar store owl – If you’re a fan of the Dollar Store you’re going to love this decoration put together with supplies bought for less than a dollar each.
- Halloween wreath – If you’ve been tempted by store bought Halloween wreaths but put off by the price you will love this tutorial.
- Easy pumpkin pillow – This Halloween pumpkin pillow is so easy to make but looks really effective.
- Door bats – These door bats look so spooky and are pretty simple to make with either a printer or a die cut machine.
- Halloween tree with paper ornaments – Trees don’t have to just be for Christmas, why not make one for Halloween and add some gorgeous paper ornaments.
- Make a pumpkin witch – Oh she is so darn cute I think I might make one and leave it out on the porch all year round!
- Cornstarch dough pumpkin decorations – I tried to make some cornstarch decorations last year and it didn’t quite go to plan so I think I’ll test out this recipe instead as these pumpkins look fabulous. They’d be perfect for a Halloween tree too!
- Flying bats window silhouette – Here’s another wonderful Halloween decoration for the kids to make, they look so effective hung in the window.
- Halloween Skally-Wagon – I love this, if you’re going to take your little ones out trick or treating in a wagon why not decorate it and turn it into a Halloween pirate ship?
- Spooky spider – How about a giant spooky spider to greet your trick or treaters? This one is made from a milk carton, some foam insulation (or pool noodles) and duct tape.
- Fall front porch tour – And I thought we’d finish up with a tour of a front porch, so you can see how to put all of your Halloween decorations together for best effect.
