Decorating the Outside of Your Home for Halloween
Halloween season is still upon us! Here are some DIY Halloween decorations that will make your house the envy of the neighborhood.
Hang some ghosts, made from balloons and gauze fabric, in all of your tree’s out front. It’ll add great movement that’ll bring your décor to life.
Eyeball Wreath/Spider Wreath
Get a feathered wreath and either hot glue some fake eyeballs, or fake spiders onto it. You can also add a bow to it for something a little extra. Great for giving the front door a little pizazz!
Lead trick-or-treaters to your door with a trail of bloody footprints. Simply step into washable red paint with bare feet, then carefully walk towards the front door. Make sure to carry your paint supply with you, should you need to redo your feet, and don't forget to have a towel waiting for you at the end of your walk for easy cleanup.
Cut out popular Halloween shapes in black paper and adhere them to your windows. When the indoor lights are lit, the shapes will come to life.
Glowing Eyes Hiding in the Bushes
These spooky eyes are reminiscent of every Scooby Doo episode ever made. They're extremely easy to make, simply cut the eye shapes out of paper towel rolls then place a plastic glow stick inside. Tuck a few sets of eyes in bushes around your front walkway to give the trick-or-treaters a little fright.
Burlap + Leaf Garlands
Hang garland around your doorway or entry columns to celebrate the autumn season. They take very little time and money to make, and you can leave them up until it's time to switch them with holiday lights.
