These crafts are spookily good!

Can’t believe it’s almost that time of the year when ghosts, bats and spiders take over our homes and walls. Instead of spending an arm and leg on Halloween decorations to decorate your door, why not get the family involved and make some yourself? This year, there will only a few trick or treaters around (from your socially-distanced bubble of friends and family) and in case they feel they are feeling low that they aren’t getting their fair share of goodies, your cute door decor is sure to bring cheer! They will not only be spooked by your decorations but will also admire your family’s creative creations to help celebrate the holiday.

These fun and easy DIY crafts require items you can find around the house and some simple art supplies. These are some the stationery and art supply stores to help you make these creepy crafts below:

Yat Fat Stationers

Now that you have got everything you need, let’s get started on making this year’s DIY Halloween decorations.

DIY Halloween Decoration 1: Ghost Garland

What you need:

  • Tissues
  • Cotton balls
  • Yarn or string
  • A black marker

How you do it:

Lay a tissue out flat and place a cotton ball in the middle. Close the tissue paper over the cotton in such a way that the round ball becomes the head and the tissue the rest of the ghostly body. Wrap some string around the head and leave enough string to wrap around the next ghost and so on until you have a garland of ghosts. Draw eyes and a mouth for each of your ghosts and you have yourself a string of ghosts.

Like Casper, these ghosts are too cute to spook!

DIY Halloween Decoration 2: Gluey Ghosts

What you need:

  • Glue
  • Googly eyes
  • Baking paper

How you do it:

These ghouls will get anything but boos! Fun to squeeze and peel, these gluey ghosts can also be stuck to mirrored or glass surfaces using double-sided tape. All you have to do is draw a ghost shape freehand with glue on the baking paper and drop in two googly eyes. As the glue starts drying, peel it off and use around the house.

DIY Halloween Decoration 3: Peel-Off Spiderwebs

What you need:

  • Glue
  • Glitter
  • Baking paper
  • Yarn or string

How you do it:

This uses the same process as the Gluey Ghosts. Put a large blob of glue on the centre of the paper, have spokes coming out of the centre and then with quick, deft strokes, draw a web. Sprinkle some glitter onto the glue and as it starts drying up, peel it off and string it up as a decoration in the house.

Simply beautiful – this makes for a sparkly web any spider would be proud to weave!

DIY Halloween Decoration 4: Pipe Cleaner Pumpkins

What you need:

  • Green yarn or string
  • Green pipe cleaners
  • Orange pipe cleaners

How you do it:

Whether you make one or an entire pumpkin patch, these Pipe Cleaner Pumpkins are just the right pick for a table decoration or strung on a vine to hang above a door frame. Bend and shape the pipe cleaners into an orange pumpkin shape, add green stems with the green pipe cleaner and tie them up with a green string.

Hang these up at different heights in the corridor leading up to your apartment or inside and pick up your child to have him or her head butt them while walking past them!

DIY Halloween Decoration 5: Toilet Tube Bats

What you need:

  • Toilet roll tubes
  • Black chart paper
  • Scissors
  • Paint and a paintbrush
  • Googly eyes
  • Glue
  • Yarn or string

How you do it:

Save those toilet roll tubes to turn into bats for another fun and easy hanging decoration. From painting the tubes to glueing on googly eyes, your family will have fun making each bat unique. Take black chart paper and wrap it around the tubes and make sure they are tightly glued together. Draw “bat wings” on the black paper and cut them out, then glue them on to the tube. Add the eyes and paint on two small teeth (you can make them white or add drops of red “blood” to them). Hang the bats up to make a spooky decoration.

Halloween is all about creativity, so celebrate the holiday by making your own decorations to adorn your door and home for this fun holiday. Happy Halloween!
