Halloween is just around the corner and it is high time that you plan your party decorations. Here are some simple and easy ‘Do It Yourself’ Ideas that you can use to decorate your Halloween party venue. So pull your sleeves up and get down to spooking your house for the holiday!
To summon one of these glowing ghosts, snap one or two green colored eight-hour light sticks so they glow. Then insert them into a white balloon. Inflate the balloon and draw wide eyed visage.
A bunch of white roses crawling with critters makes a disturbing centerpiece. Attach vinyl bugs to white roses with glue. Paint vinyl snakes using black acrylic paint. Use floral wire to create anchors for coiled snakes, twist one end around the snake’s middle and insert the other end in the vase. Fix painted centipede to the vase with glue.
Make your guests shudder with these lampshades. Cut out bats with black paper. Suspend some cutouts with thread and stick a few inside the shade. A translucent white paper lampshade works best.
Great your guests with a menacing silhouette that climbs up the stairs. Print out a large black silhouette, cut it out horizontally in the same height as the risers of your stairs (which is usually 6”). Then start pasting the lowest piece of the cut out from the base of your stairs with double sided tape.
If the spooky, hundred year old dusty look doesn’t come naturally, then simply fake it. Use real looking stuffed objects (like stuffed birds used here). Take a hot glue gun and with the gun set on low, go over the objects till you get the desired look of the web. Wait till it dries.
Take glass cylindrical candleholders. Take colored tissue paper of the same height. Cut out spooky shapes and faces from the papers and wrap them around the candleholders. Place a candle (preferably spice or cinnamon scented for the holiday spirit). Light the candles and place on your windowsills or over your fireplace.
It is common practice to hang bats from the ceiling. But you can also pin them outside on tree branches or bushes to spook guests. Make a bat shaped stencil, use it to cut out identical bat shapes out of black paper. Spray pain clothespins black. Stick one paper bat on each side of the pin with glue. Then pin these bats around.
These creepy, crawly paper mice are not so nice. Stick these unsavory critters on stair risers, baseboards, or any spot where they might give unsuspecting passersby a little jump. Cut out black paper mice and mount them as desired.
These creepy crepe-paper curtains are a simple and inexpensive way to "spook up".. Measure your window frame and cut strips of black crepe paper to fit. Gently stretch and twist these strips, cut and tear edges for a spookier look. Then simply hang them using double sided tape at the head of the window frame.
When fierce silhouettes are propped above candles, spectacular shadows dance across the walls. Use hard black card paper to cut out these silhouettes. Take 18-gauge wire and tape one of its ends at the back of the cut out. Using pliers shape the other end of the wire into a circle that loops around the bottom of the candleholder.
