Easy to Make Halloween Decorations

Some Halloween decorations can inspire all year long, like the black and orange wreath or the wrapped tealights we pulled together this week – just change your colors for a completely different feel. If you want to celebrate October 31st with some spooky decor, there’s still time to pull some simple decorations together. Halloween is a great time for DIY decorating, so we decided to come up with few crafty ideas that won’t break your budget, and can be used at home or at work in time for the 31st.

Halloween Wreaths

Let all the trick or treaters out there know that you’re open for business by displaying this decorative Halloween wreath on your door front or window display. We spray painted the artificial berries and flowers, which give them a beautifully gothic feel, using Design Master Spray. The plain material wreath is the perfect base for wrapping different layers of ribbon, mesh and twine string around to create a textured finish.

Halloween Candle Holders

These striking candle holders generate the perfect Halloween mood by using paper doilies in an unexpected way. Take one paper doily and spray it using black master spray, cut it in half and secure both halves on opposite sides with some grosgrain ribbon and some natural raffia or twine. (Obviously, it’s important to make sure the raffia, ribbon and paper doily are kept away from the flame, and the tea candles are not left unattended – definitely better safe than sorry!)

Halloween Decorative Candy Jars

Many Halloween enthusiasts spend days, and lots of money, decorating to celebrate Hallow’s eve. But the truth is, you don’t need to spend a fortune on decorations to make appropriately ghoulish decor this Halloween. Candy jars are a great way to quickly add some Halloween flair. While candy is more traditional (and edible!) we used our Aqua Pearls to show you how easily they add color as vase decoration to fit any theme.
