Best 50 DIY Halloween Decorations that will decorate your home for a spooktacular time.
I honestly am the WORST at decorating for Halloween. I just have never had that much gumption to do so. The most I have ever done would be paper bats that I hung in our front entry and a scarecrow that I bought at Hobby Lobby (and it wasn’t even scary, more like happy/creepy).
This is the year I have decided to change all of that. So I asked my Pinterest guru sister, Nicole to send me some of her favorite Pins of Halloween and then I went on a search myself.
And I was completely amazed on what I found. People are so creative and amazingly talented. Be sure to check them all out, I have even shared with you which ones I will totally be doing.
Let me know if there are any that you just love or if I missed one of your favorites be sure to comment below, I totally want to check it out. XOXO San

Friendly Ghosts – not too scary for those little ones, yet festive.
Chic Pumpkins – 2 ways and so easy, aren’t they adorable? I can totally do this!
Witch Legs – I know my grandma would get a hoot out of these. Maybe something we will have to go and do for her.
Mummy Door – love this easy transformation of your front door. My little guy Cannon really wants to do this.

DIY Pumpkin Candle Holders – these are super adorable and I know as soon as my sister sees these she will want to make them.
Spooky Crystal Ball Candle Sticks – these are something that I would totally pick up at Home Goods or Target. But I am sure it is cheaper to make them on my own. Impress your friends with these. Get the clear Christmas bulbs here.
Pacman Halloween Garland – I love this retro garland. I love that you could easily reuse this for a birthday party too. Best. Garland. Idea.
Spider Wreath – itsy – bitsy – spider went up the front door….I think that this is my favorite spider decoration yet!
Hanging Mummy Ghost – winner for the scariest ghost! Literally, this would be a cause for me to skip that house with my little ones. Granted my kids would run right up to it but trust me I would try to convince them otherwise…lol.

Halloween Wreath – I love that you are just using things you already have on hand. Saving you at least $60!
Halloween Skull Wreath – clever idea. Making the front of your door a little spooky.
Candy Corn Garland – I am loving this idea. There are two drawbacks though – one I think my daughter Jersey would eat them and two I wonder if your hands get sticky?
Spooky Spider Eggs – creepy! Just creepy but that is the whole point right?
Vinyl Halloween Door Decorations – love that you can make these easy door decorations from picking up a few vinyl table cloths. Order the vinyl table cloths here.
Spooky Terrariums – a simple glass jar and a few creepy, crawly plastic critters and you are set.
Candy Corn Wreath – I love how this doesn’t look gaudy at all. Candy corn to me is just kind of gaudy, so that fact that I just love this wreath says a lot.
Want to go a little scarier for a wreath on the front door – try this Snake Wreath. My boys would totally love to do this, my girls, not so much.
Creepy Candy Corn Jar – this is just too cute! I am loving it a guarantee must make here in our home.
Mummy Jars – my sister has made these as well. She is Miss Crafty when it comes to making Halloween decorations and she becomes a little Pinterest obsessed. Pick up some mason jars here and grab the cheese cloth too while you are it.

Halloween Candle Light Cups – this is a great use an idea for just your basic plastic cups. Another use for these classics at your party.
