Frightfully Festive Halloween House Décor
Consider yourself a true Halloween junkie? If you’re ahead of the game, then you’re not just dressing yourself and your family up—you’ll want to dress up your house too! Having a decorated house makes trick-or-treating so much more fun, and what an opportunity to let your ultimate HGTV-inspo shine through! Here are some of my favorite ideas on some DIY décor to get your house into the Halloween spirit. Happy house haunting!
Chicken Wire Ghosts
No better way to add a bit of eeriness to your home than by inviting some ghoul friends to hang out in the yard? These super easy chicken wire ghosts are easy to make and personalize to whatever characters you want floating around! Check out the full tutorial at Fine Craft Guild.
Life-size Witch Legs
There’s no place like home, you say? Tell that to the Wicked Witch of the West! Bring some spooky humor to your front porch with these festive and inexpensive witch legs. Don’t forget some striped stockings to complete the look. Find the original how-to at Instructables.
Floating Witch Hat Luminaries
The witches have really made themselves at home, am I right? These simple witch hat luminaries are perfect for adding a festive touch without scaring all the neighborhood kids back to their homes. These glow sticks would make for a perfectly magical touch. You can find the full tutorial at Polkadot Chair.
Bloody Handprint Window Clings
For those who are looking to add a little more gruesome flair to their decorations, this is the perfect project for you. Have all the kids working to solve the mystery murder by setting up this crime scene, using Elmer’s glue and food coloring. See all the steps for this DIY at HubPages.
“Smell My Feet” Sign
Looking for something more on the cuter side to dress up your house? This adorable footprint sign is a great way to show some Halloween spirit without being too gory or scary. It’s as easy as grabbing a small section of picket wooden fencing and some paint. Beware, however—you’ll have to deal having colorful feet! Or, I suppose you could opt out of the fun part and simply trace and cut out a footprint. For more inspo and the full tutorial, head over to Homemade Interest.
