Deck Your Halls with the Halloween Spirit
Posted on 11 Oct 2018
Decorating your home for Halloween is so much fun – especially if you can get the kids involved! If you’re looking for ideas to spook up your home, look no further. Reunion has you covered! Most of these ideas are pretty easy and inexpensive. But the photos and memories will be valuable forever.
DIY Halloween Sign
Here’s a fun way to express your love for your favorite nostalgic scary movies – build a creepy old sign that points to doom and gloom! This super-easy project can be crafted from scrap wood along with paint and stain. Get creative with movie titles or famous scary locations!
Halloween Mason Jar Luminaries
If you’re not interested in carving pumpkins this year, light up your porch with these mason jars instead! They are easy to make and perfect to decorate inside or outside. Use tea lights or battery-operated lights inside.
DIY Fog Machine
Do you own a slow cooker? Now you can make your own fog machine to prop near your door for trick-or-treaters. You’ll need dry ice (and gloves) and water. If you have a large pumpkin or cauldron, set this inside for an even spookier effect.
Spider Egg Sac
Looking for something extra creepy for the arachnophobes? Make these spider eggs using stockings, a foam egg, and plastic spiders. Make several sacs and suspend them at varying heights for an extra icky effect!
DIY Hanging Bats
Put the children to work! Black craft foam, googly eyes, and fishing line are all you need to create a whole colony of swooping, weatherproof bats. Kids big and small will love this quick and easy craft project.
If you have kids who are Harry Potter fans and you’re feeling super crafty, create floating candles and an enchanted ceiling to boot. Find out more with this tutorial. Works best in a room with high ceilings.
