Halloween is on our door step so it’s time for fun DIY decorations.
From spooky bats to awesome pumpkin carvings, I’ve put together a handful of my favourite homemade decorations so that you can try them out for yourself 🙂
DIY Flying Bats by Cassiefairy
The lovely Cassie from Cassiefairy blog has put together a video tutorial to teach you how to make your very own flying bats in time for Halloween. They’re super easy to do so they’re perfect for a family activity and a craft project that should take about half an hour.
The idea is simple. Cut out a bat shaped black card, fold it so that the wings stick out and then thread some string to its body so that it can be hung and you’re finished.
Below is a bat stencil I found that should be easy to cut out:
Watercolour Pumpkins by Paper & Stitch
Once again Brittni from Paper & Stitch shares a really fun DIY idea and this time it’s all about painting pumpkins. She tells us that this craft idea is super easy so just grab paints and brush and start layering it onto your pumpkin. Don’t forget to let the paint dry before adding another colour of paint!
Jack O’lantern by The Fairytale Pretty Picture
Carving a pumpkin can be an ordeal but it’s worth it. Find a guide on how to carve a pumpkin and make your very own Jack O’lantern. Share your scary faced pumpkin via Twitter using @alinaisaev.
String Skull by A Beautiful Mess
If you fancy a more challenging craft idea this Halloween then try out this awesome string skull that Elsie & Emma share with us. First start by painting a piece of wood black and printing out a skull to use as a template for your nails. Use a hammer to add nails onto your board by focusing on the outline of the skulls, eyes, nose and mouth. Peel off your skull printout and wrap white string around your nails. It takes a bit longer than the other Halloween projects I’ve shared so far but the outcome is super awesome.
DIY Paper Lantern Skulls at Minted
Another easy Halloween decoration idea. Kathleen from Snowdrop & Co takes us step by step to teach us this fun craft. Start by using black tissue paper to cut out eyes and a scary mouth, and a nose too. Then, use glue to stick the tissue paper onto your paper lanterns that’ll then need to be dried before put back onto the light garland.
I hope you’ve enjoyed these homemade Halloween decorations and be sure to let us know if you try these out by commenting below.
Happy Halloween everyone!
