Now Halloween is a holiday that pertains to many frightful decorations which include pumpkins, monsters, spider webs, skeletons, zombies, witches, ghouls, vampires, and so much more. Still, there are plenty of people who tend to go all out when it comes to decorating their homes for this scary holiday. Some decorate their homes for parties and trick or treaters. Others do it because they simply love Halloween and want to make their homes look as ghoulish and scary as possible. Of course, you can find plenty of Halloween decorations at your local store this time of year. However, sometimes it’s just cheaper and fun to make your own with rather simple materials that you can find anywhere. I mean why buy cobwebs when you can do just fine with pillow stuffing or cheese cloth? You can even use Halloween decorations, too that are easy to accessorize like skeletons and spiders. Nevertheless, many children might create Halloween decorations in school. However, this post features craft projects more likely made by people who’ve already left fifth grade behind them, particularly Halloween enthusiasts, partiers, parents, and repressed art majors wanting a creative outlet to express themselves. So without further delay to Creepyville, I now present you with a treasury of Halloween craft creations.
- Welcome visitors to your Halloween party with a creepy spider and feather wreath on your front door.
Let’s just say anyone with arachnaphobia will sure find this wreath simply terrifying. I mean we all know at least someone who’s afraid of spiders. Am I right?
2. Of course, from what I can tell by these poppies, beauty is surely in the eye of the beholder.
But having eyeballs in the flowers, well, that’s just damn creepy. I mean an eyeball is creepy enough when it’s not in an eye socket. Seriously, it’s gross.
3. Greet trick or treaters at your front door with this monster wreath.
Now this is not very scary in the least since it kind of reminds you of Cookie Monster’s cousin. But I’m sure your guests will love it, especially kids.
4. Of course, no haunted abode can be complete without your very own electric chair.
This isn’t a real, working electric chair. Just a piece of Halloween decoration. Still, I have to admit, it’s very well made that I suspect someone had too much time on their hands.
5. I hear that bones are really good for wind chimes. Won’t you agree?
Yes, I know that neighbors might think there’s something very wrong with you upon looking at this. Luckily, it’s October so any creepy decorations like this are perfectly acceptable. So creep away.
6. Experts recommend that you keep your insects in apothecary jars with green slime.
Don’t worry, the bugs are made from plastic so they’re not poisonous. Not sure about the green slime though.
7. For Halloween, grace your front door with this one-of-a-kind Purple People Eater Wreath.
Now this seems quite simple. But it doesn’t seem too scary either. More like a purple cyclops on Sesame Street. Love the horn though.
8. Heard of a spider web? How about a spider web quilt?
Now my cousin had a giant stuffed spider named Charles when he was a kid. This would’ve been the perfect quilt for him at the time.
9. Make your home extra spooky by making these Halloween paper lanterns.
Use construction paper and cut out black silhouettes to stand out. You can even hang them overhead or put them on the ground. It doesn’t matter.
10. Light up the living room for Halloween with a spooky lamp like this.
Now that’s a spooky lamp with black cob webs galore. Of course, it’s a much more tasteful decoration than black lighting.
11. Now I’m sure Halloween is the only time this mummy wreath isn’t under wraps.
The mummy wraps seem to be made from cheese cloth. And the bow is tied with a couple of skeleton hands hanging from it.
12. Spider webs always look better with purple glitter.
Yes, purple and glittery spider webs with spiders on them. And they’re held by ribbon, too.
13. Uh-oh, looks like we have a zombies in the vent again.
Boy, I’m sure Walking Dead fans want to have a Halloween decoration like this in their homes. Freak out the guests for hours.
14. Dripping candles are always a scary addition, especially if they are black and have skulls on them.
Now I think the flames aren’t real but rather electric. And I think the drip is of crayon or paper machete. However, the skulls sure are sparkly and in different colors.
15. Nothing makes a Halloween party worthwhile than a bottle of boos.
That’s right a bottle of haunting ghost screams bound to give you nightmares. Then again, you might experience some frightening hallucinations if you drink the amount of booze Ray Milland did in The Lost Weekend.
16. How would you want to be greeted by a scary skull like this?
Now this is scary Halloween craftsmanship at its best. It almost looks like it’s been a fixture on the house since the time it was built.
17. A purple witch’s hat always has to come with a few finishing touches.
And by that I mean spiders, bat design, a black flower, black feathers, and tut material. This including the purple as well as black and sparkly kind.
18. This scary skull box will certainly scare the bejesus out of your guests at the Halloween party.
Yes, these are screaming skulls from a box. And it’s tied with barbed wire. Scary but don’t touch it if you dare.
19. Remember that craft cottages make excellent haunted houses painted black.
Well, painting black craft cottages is easy enough to make haunted houses. Yes, black makes things creepy, indeed.
20. Of course, scare your young guests with this spider web wreath of yarn.
Now you have a yarn spider web in the middle. And you have balls of yarn surrounding it as well as the spiders going around the border. Pretty clever if I do say so myself.
21. Don’t have time to make another jack o’ lantern? Make some jack o’ lantern lights with jars.
And the best part is you can paint them in all kinds of different colors, too. Also, you can give them all kinds of faces. Besides, painting is much easier than carving. And safer, too.
22. So these signs show you all where you want to go? So where would it be, Transylvania, Amityville, Salem, Sleepy Hollow, or Roswell?
“Hey, Igor, Transylvania’s that way.” Still, I’d stay out of Salem in 1692. And I’d clear out of Sleepy Hollow in the 18th century. Not so sure about Amityville or Roswell.
23. Of course, if you have a pumpkin, you can use stuff from a craft store to make a centerpiece with it.
Now this pumpkin is so shiny, especially with the black bird and ribbon on top. Still, I really like the urn and the other decorations on it. So stunning and scary.
24. Oh, my God, this book is on fire!
Actually this is a craft project in which it’s supposed to look like a spell book. The flames are an imitation. Still, hope the faux spell book was from the Twilight series. Then again, it looks quite old.
25. You can make a great wreath with a murder of crows.
Actually these are black birds you can find in any craft store. Still, having them together as a wreath with glitter on them might make your guests wonder about you.
26. Serve your guests with this skeleton dish.
Yes, it’s a dish that has skeleton bones on it. A great kind of dish to serve stuff for a Halloween party.
27. Want a jack o’ lantern but can’t find a big enough pumpkin? Well, using a wood crate will do nicely.
Now that will definitely get your house noticed by drivers. However, I can’t do something like that since my parents would need those wooden planks to stack firewood on.
28. Of course, a black cheese cloth and skulls really go well with a picture frame.
Now this is supposed to resemble cobwebs and skulls with feathers and bones. Yes, it’s creative use with picture frames at its finest.
29. A witch’s boot is always a great place for black flowers.
Now this is has witch all over it as you can see with all the witch memorabilia. Love the black flowers though.
30. Hello, trick or treaters, and remember the witch is in.
And it seems that she’s very stuck in the planter outside. Wonder what spell she’ll cast to get out of that cauldron.
31. Grace your front door for Halloween with a wreath of masks.
Seems like they’ve been strung together but you’ll never know. However, it might create a dilemma for the Phantom of the Opera. However, that guy has major issues.
32. Milk cartons always make handy haunted houses when decorated with the right materials.
Now this is an elementary craft project at expert level. Seriously, no elementary art class would ever create haunted houses from milk cartons as amazing as these.
33. Scare trick or treaters by greeting them with a wreath of snakes.
If you have a priceless trinket in your home that “belongs in a museum,” it’s a great way to ward off reckless archaeologist Indiana Jones. Seriously, when it comes to treasures, he’s willing to wreck entire ancient temples with working machinery to get them.
34. An old mirror is always great for greeting Halloween guests.
And this old mirror definitely looks like it’s been in the garage for far too long. Then again, it also has black leaves on it, too. Yes, it was made like that on purpose.
35. Welcome to our humble Halloween home, Don’t mind the feet sticking out from the doormat.
Yeah, I’m sure that witch really didn’t come to a good end there. Well, at least she wasn’t wearing ruby slippers or had a shoe crazy sister.
36. Seems like this ghoul really likes to hang out in this person’s yard for some reason.
Now this implies covering a mannequin with old white or gray clothes. It helps if they’re really tattered or old looking.
37. Who knew that doilies make really good spider webs?
Now unless you don’t want to make the doilies, this might be rather easy to pull off. Then again, I’m sure that they might have doilies at any local store like Big Lots.
38. For Halloween, a snake is great for tying the curtains.
No, this isn’t a real snake. I think it might be an old belt from the looks of it. Still, guaranteed to keep Indiana Jones away from your house.
39. I always thought that black lace goes very well with candles.
Why didn’t I think about using black lace with candles? This looks awesome. Still, hope burning lace doesn’t pose a dangerous fire hazard.
40. Have you ever got the feeling that you were being watched by this wreath?
Now this eyeball wreath is super creepy. I mean regular eyeballs are disturbing enough. Glow in the dark eyeballs, now that’s a whole new level of creepiness.
41. I hear that cheese cloth ghosts make great chandelier decorations.
Not sure if these ghosts make your house haunted for Halloween. However, it’s still quite worth trying out if you ask me.
42. Of course, paper ghosts can be just as scary if you think about it.
Of course, you can hang these on a ceiling, too. However, they’re better to photograph while on the hardwood floor.
43. Eeek! There are creepy crawlies in my soap!
Actually these soaps were made this way. It’s supposed to freak visitors out during Halloween parties. Still, wonder if I should try this.
44. Now these black flowers would surely go well on any Halloween fireplace mantle.
Now Morticia Addams would totally want these in her home, especially on Valentines Day. Still, wonder why she tends to cut off the flowers though.
45. Of course, a dismembered finger always makes a great writing implement.
Yes, this is a finger pen. Yes, you can write with it. Yes, it’s creepy as hell. Don’t ask.
46. For Halloween, greet visitors with this one-of-a-kind Halloween wreath.
Now this wreath seems mostly laced with black streamers. Also, resembles a wreath you’d expect to see in a funeral home.
47. Got old photos lying in your house? Then make them look even scarier with red eyes and fangs.
Of course, you might want to use old photos you found on the Internet. Or just scan the old photos with a copier. Your family wouldn’t be happy if you use the old ones lying around in your house.
48. Looks like these two skeletons seem to be in a hurry to hide the body.
“Hurry up and bury him before somebody sees us, Alex. You don’t want the neighbors getting suspicious.”
49. Man, this lamp is so old that you’d swear that there are cobwebs and spiders all over it.
Actually this is a craft project, especially since cobwebs are either gray or white. The black cobwebs is actually dyed cheese cloth. Besides, most spiders aren’t that big.
50. Remember, you never know what can go bump in the night.
Now this makes a great Halloween yard decoration. Sure to freak out a few trick or treaters to the point of wetting themselves.
51. Of course, black birds always cater to black candles.
Now this doesn’t use real candle flames. But it does look quite eerie. Still, like the bird and like the glitter.
52. Welcome to my humble home and I mean no bones about it.
I’m sure this skeleton is just hanging around to greet the guests. Doesn’t really mean to scare anybody.
53. Oh, my God, did I just see a ghost in the yard?
A ghost decoration like this might scare the hell out of drivers. And it might attract ghost hunters. Then again, ghost hunters tend to go to old houses.
54. Man, I haven’t used these candlesticks in ages. But I didn’t expect them to be this covered in cobwebs.
Actually these consist of cheese cloths and plastic spiders on the candlesticks. They also have old leaves for a more decrepit look.
55. Of course, you can always see ghosts in the light.
And it seems these little ghosts are having a good time on this bonsai with lights on it. Of course, some are more ornery than others.
56. When it comes to jars, you can also make your own spooky grave yard scene.
Now this is cool. Love how they paint the jars just the right color to show a sunset as the spooky stuff comes into play.
57. Hey, this isn’t Christmas yet. Oh, wait.
Now this is a real monster wreath. For those who really love The Nightmare Before Christmas, this also makes a great yuletide decoration as well.
58. Sorry, everyone, but it looks like the wreath is infested with spiders at the moment.
Now this is said to cost under $3. However, to arachnophobic visitors, it might mean a lifetime of therapy.
59. With streamers, wires, and string, you can make your own spider nest.
Now this is very creepy and will certainly creep out your Halloween party guests. Anyone scared of spiders might want to avoid your place next time.
60. If you look up, I wonder if you can see the witch’s underwear.
I’ve seen a few of these on Pinterest. Actually I’ve seen a lot of these. And yes, this usually requires an umbrella.
61. Remember that a flower pot makes a great Halloween bat wind chime.
Might be as scary as the other decorations on here. But it’s pretty cute it’s worth putting on this post.
62. Looks like we have some mad killer on the loose in this neighborhood.
My mistake, these are Halloween decorations. But you have to admit despite how disgusting it looks, the bloody corpse in body bags has to be quite clever.
63. For those who love Little Shop of Horrors, you can now make your very own Audrey II plant.
Of course, this isn’t nearly as dangerous as the one you see in the movies. Just to note, the original movie had Seymour sacrificing himself to kill the plant.
64. Greet your visitors this Halloween with this black wreath of shiny baubles.
Now this looks quite pretty for a Halloween decoration. Then again, this seems to be borrowing from Christmas.
65. For your Halloween party, impress your visitors with your very own Nevermore Wreath.
Yes, bird is supposed to be a raven despite looking rather small. Still, love the black flowers on this though.
66. Hey, I didn’t know that spider string glowed in the dark.
Actually someone made them this way. Not sure if spiders actually spin stuff like that. But still looks cool.
67. Got some old bones lying around? Then how about make a wreath?
Actually don’t use real skeletons for this because it’s illegal as well as downright creepy. A dollar store skeleton would do just fine. Still, pretty weird though and I give no bones about it.
68. If you have any masks lying around, I’m sure they’ll go great with some old, dirty cloth pieces.
Now this is pretty scary decor for a haunted house. Yeah, those masks are downright creepy if you ask me, especially when made to resemble ghosts.
69. Hello, hang up your coat and stay awhile.
Now this is freaky. Using baby doll limbs for coat hooks. Probably one of the sickest shop class projects ever.
70. Seems that the black birds really like to roost on that dead branch for some reason.
Yes, the branch is covered in lights for effect and the birds are quite small. But still, it’s quite awesome if you ask me.
71. Greet visitors to your Halloween party with this ghost hanging on your front porch.
Of course, this is made from some stuff you might be able to find at a craft store or a trash heap. Yeah, probably doesn’t look as scary in the day time.
72. Of course, your small black birds always could use a rest on a bonsai tree.
Of course, I’m not sure about the tree being alive or dead. But the birds really give it a good Halloween feel to it.
73. Now this fuzzy black wreath with flowers will certainly impress your Halloween visitors.
Now this looks like something you might find either at the Addams family house or at a funeral parlor. Then again, you might see something like this at the Munsters,’ too.
74. Of course, these three witches are just outside hanging out. Not trying to scare anybody.
Man, their outfits sure look way colorful than I expected them. Seems like one of them is particularly partial to yellow for some reason.
75. Of course, Halloween wouldn’t be complete with a bloody face of skin.
Now this is disgusting. But I’m sure this is the kind of stuff you see in a slasher horror movie. Not sure if I like it though.
76. Quick! There are hands sticking out of the fireplace! Run for your lives!
Of course, this is a cardboard Halloween decoration. It won’t harm anybody. Still, pretty cool if you ask me.
77. Can’t find a skeleton at the dollar store? Then make one with some milk jugs.
Now this is quite clever. Not quite close to a skeleton you find in a store. But if you want a last minute decoration, this will do fine.
78. Make your house haunted with a black flower wreath like this one.
Again, another wreath that kind of looks like it belongs in a funeral parlor. Still, I think it’s pretty and I like it. So it goes on this post.
79. Oh, my God, did I just see Freddy Kreuger on the toilet?
I’m not a fan of slasher horror movies nor the Nightmare on Elm Street movies. Still, I know there will be plenty of people who’d appreciate this.
80. Of course, we should all mourn the loss of the Wicked Witch of the East with a Halloween celebration in Munchkin land of course.
Then again, I think the munchkins were quite creepy in The Wizard of Oz for some reason. Still, I wouldn’t touch those ruby slippers if I were you.
81. So I guess this is what they do at witches’ meetings.
Now these witches are made of some trash bags as you see here. Still, might make my parents mad if I try to attempt this.
82. As they say, it’s not Halloween unless you can hang candles from the ceiling.
Of course, these must be toilet paper or paper towel rolls. And I’m sure the candles are fake. But still reminds me of Harry Potter for some reason. I wonder why.
83. I knew tables had legs but this is ridiculous.
Now this is creepy. If someone had a table like this, I’d question their sanity. That is, unless it’s Halloween of course.
84. Welcome to our humble home, don’t mind the encased samples in the living room.
Now this is pretty disgusting. Who could’ve thought up with this, I may never know. Still, wonder if it might cause some trick and treaters to vomit. Then again, some might think this is cool.
85. Heard the candy corn makes great soil for these spider bushes for some reason.
Of course, despite being Halloween inspired, they still remind me of a plant you’d see in a Dr. Seuss story. Not sure why.
86. Now I wonder who these masked people clad in black are. Must be some weirdos on their way to a masquerade ball.
Now these look so creepy because they almost seem real. I swear I’ve seen pictures of people dressed like that at a Venice carnival.
87. Of course, a paper witch’s hat is always a great home for birds.
Not sure if the bird is a raven or crow. Then again, you can barely tell the real birds apart anyway. Well, unless they’re in the same picture together. In that case, the raven is bigger.
88. Hello, everyone, and please don’t mind the remains in the trash bin. I’ve been trying to get rid of them since Tuesday.
Now this is quite disgusting. Not sure what I’d think of seeing this in somebody’s yard. Still, you have to admire their use of red paint to bring out the gore.
89. For Halloween lawn decor, you might want to take a nontraditional approach with flamingos.
Well, skeleton flamingos of course. Don’t know about you but I think they’re far less tacky than the actual lawn ornaments we know and love.
90. Nothing to see here. Just a floating skeleton looking for the rest of his anatomy.
Of course, you might want to keep away from the candles. They might catch fire on something. Still, this is pretty clever.
91. Haunt your Halloween hideaway with these dark angels of death.
Now you can find these angels in any craft store. And you can paint them as dark and dead looking as you like, too.
92. Greet your Halloween party guests by gracing your front door with this tombstone wreath.
Not sure if anyone would find this dead funny. However, it might send some thinking that you’re dead crazy. Still, the wreath looks like something you’d see in a cemetery.
93. Seems like this spider really wants to create a giant web from a giant frame.
Of course, I can bet that this web was made by a tone of black yarn. Still quite cool though. However, I doubt that a spider would spin a web that big.
94. Seems like someone’s cauldron has blown right over.
Yeah, I think leaving the cauldron bubbling like that is very irresponsible. There should be at least a witch standing by here. You never know what a potion is going to do.
95. Of course, Halloween night wouldn’t be complete without a quilt like this.
Yes, this is perhaps the ultimate Halloween quilt. But if you want one, I’d recommend buying one. Quilts take a very long time to make.
96. Heard of a jack o’ lantern? The how about a jack o’ lampshade?
Now this is quite cool if you ask me. And unlike a real pumpkin you can still use it as much as you like and it won’t smell after a few weeks.
97. Hate to interrupt, but I think that plant might be watching us.
Now that’s freaky. Seems like something you’d see in a mad scientist’s house. A batshit insane mad scientist with a German accent like Peter Lorre. Or Conrad Veidt.
98. Who knew that spiders spin their webs in picture frames?
Now this looks quite simple to make. Just get some string and a picture frame. Then again, it might be a not at easy to make a spider web as it seems.
99. Of course, when it comes to trick or treat, the candy doesn’t hang far from the tree.
Now this is cute. Just a jack o’ lantern and a small tree with treat bags. I’m sure people will love this.
100. Of course, it wouldn’t be Halloween if I didn’t include some crystal ball specimens.
Now this is freaky. Of course, in a post like this, you’re bound to have some scary and disgusting decorations here.
