Halloween is a chance for kids and adults alike to enjoy seasonal, spooky fun. In keeping with this festive atmosphere, millions of families will choose to decorate their homes to celebrate. While many spend a considerable amount of money on store-bought Halloween decorations for their homes, the holiday offers plenty of opportunities for families to make a variety of decorations. For anyone who is willing to get creative, Halloween decorations can work in almost every room of the house by using common household items to make these creations:
SPOOKY WITCH LEG CHANDELIER
Everybody has a few pairs of striped stockings, old shoes and an umbrella. But how many people would consider throwing the three together to make a chandelie that fits Halloween perfectly? This cute hanging object is a perfect way to deliver a shocking surprise to house guests. This clever project allows you to create the allusion of two hanging legs and if you choose to customize it with LED lights actually produce light for a living or dining room. And what could fit Halloween better than the ghoulish idea of two hanging witches legs producing light that delights?
BEWITCH YOUR DINING ROOM
While centerpieces can always help with a cool look, it can sometimes be hard to think of other creative Halloween ideas for a dining room. These creative tab leg covers, which can be easily made with some leftover curtain fabric and old shoes, are perfect for adding a fun, innovative look to any dining room or kitchen table. Combined with a centerpiece that fits with the Halloween theme, these witches leg table leg covers are perfect to help you celebrate the holiday in every room of your home.
TABLESCAPE CAN ADD A SPOOKY FEEL
There are more options than just a spooky centerpiece to make your dining room table ready for the Halloween season. As this extravagant option suggests, with a bit of effort you can create a fun, dynamic tablespace that will have all your friends interested. Using faux crows or ravens can give you a classic touch, while a skeleton centerpiece or shimmery pumpkins can add to the allure. You can even top this sort of design off with a tablecloth made to look like a spider web. Adding spider toys to the table makes it seem even more real!
STAICASE DECORATIONS ADD COOL FEEL
As you aim to fill your home with indoor Halloween decoration galore, you can sometimes forget about the staircase. But as this simple idea shows, it's easy to turn your stairs into a decoration all their own. By making simple cut outs of letters or images that fit the Halloween spirit and attaching them to easy stick pads, you can spell out words like (BOO) or show a flock of bats ascending your stairs.
SMALL GHOSTS ACCESSORIZE TABLE
This easy project delivers a fun look with minimal expense and only slightly more effort. By taking fabric, doilies, or even some scrim (a gauze-like fabric), and using pipe cleaner to stand up right, you can create miniature ghosts that look perfect on an end table or great for a nightstand in a kid's room. You can accessorize the ghosts with small padded black eyes or by adding bows. In fact, some families love making one for each family member and displaying them on the mantle. Either way, this project is fun, easy to customize, and provides a small indoor decoration quickly.
MIRAGE & MIRRORS CREATE CHOULISH DECORATION
Mirrors are a part of every haunted house, and in this Halloween indoor decoration idea, you ensure that the mirror reflects a spooky image all the time. Starting with a relatively inexpensive mirror, you can use reflective paint to blur the image and create an inverse image to fit inside the frame. This project is pretty cheap for the end result: a mirror that looks classically haunted!
SCARY JARS ADD PANIC TO EVERY DECORE
If you're like many of us, you have some old Halloween decorations laying around the house that is crying out for a creative use. Instead of simply displaying them on a table, you can easily repurpose them with a neat solution: apothecary jars. These stylish containers can be picked up nearly anywhere. Filled with Halloween decorations like pumpkins, they can be cute. With skulls and bones, they can be creepy. Pick up some replica Spanish moss at a craft store to make these decorations stand out even more.
