Homemade Halloween Decorations

Ghosts, witches and jack-o-lanterns are popping up around the neighborhood. A great way to decorate your own house with the help of your kids is with these homemade Halloween decorations. We have found a lot of great ideas and we hope you try some of them out.

  • Halloween banners are an easy way to add some flair to your home. Party Planner Center is offering free bat cut outs to help create your banner. Add some googly eyes and the bats will really pop!
  • Mini pumpkins offer a variety of options for your kids to decorate. You can paint the mini pumpkins or decorate them in a variety of ways. We loved this idea from MarthaStewart.com. Cut out a mouth on the mini pumpkin, add fake teeth, and use a pin to create two eyes.
  • Using themed picture frames around your home can quickly create a Halloween feeling. We found the picture frame, above, on the blog I Heart Nap Time. Using your old Halloween photos or leave a Halloween message.
  • Do you decorate your home for Halloween? Share your ideas!

    Love the picture frame idea! My little one is especially sensitive of scary things, and Halloween can be a tough time for him, but we can do the picture frame without scaring him!

    My 3.5 year old loves to glue and loves googly eyes. This sounds like an AWESOME project to keep him entertained and work on his fine motor skills, going to try it this weekend! Thanks!
