Some Decorative Halloween Treat Ideas To Impress kids:Halloween brings out the kid in most of us. The air starts to cool, pumpkins appear on grocery store shelves, and before you know it, you’ve turned your front porch into a mad scientist’s lab.Every retailer from Macy’s to Target offers Halloween costumes, decor, and party supplies. But while you might love those animated, life-sized Frankenstein inflatable decorations, you don’t need to drop hundreds of dollars to decorate for Halloween.
Whether you throw a Halloween bash, or just want to impress the neighborhood trick-or-treaters with your haunted mansion, you can decorate on a budget for Halloween, and still have the most impressive house on the block. Most of these craft projects use reclaimed materials or items you already have in your home. You just need a few tools, some supplies, and your imagination to have a spook-tacular Halloween this year.
Some Decorative Halloween Treat Ideas To Impress kids
Make your yard come alive with this spooky craft. If you have trees in your yard, you can use oven-baked clay to give the trees spooky faces. Simply create a pair of eyes, a nose, and a mouth for each tree, and attach them to the trunks.
Place a portable radio or speakers near the tree and play your favorite eerie soundtrack to draw even more attention to your haunted trees.
- Purchase oven-baked modeling clay, like Fimo or a similar brand. You can buy modeling clay for about $12 a pound online. Buy colored clay, such as green, brown, or black, to give the face more character and to make each face more noticeable.
- Create basic shapes for the eyes, nose, and mouth. Use a butter knife to carve out more details like eyelids or teeth, and bake them in the oven.
- Use removable putty or double-sided hanging tape to arrange the face on the tree.
Jack o’ Lanterns
Jack o’ lanterns are staple Halloween decorations, but some of us would rather not deal with cutting and carving pumpkins every year. Hobby and craft stores sell artificial pumpkins you can carve and light. Best of all, you can store them for next season.
- Purchase an artificial pumpkin from a hobby store. They come in several different shapes, colors, and styles, so pick one you think will look best at your front door.
- Use an Exacto knife to carve a small hole in the bottom of the pumpkin, and to create a design on the front.
- After you finish the design, use a small piece of sandpaper to gently sand down any rough edges.
- Place a small flashlight or electric candle in the bottom to make your design glow, and pop your Jack o’ Lantern on the front porch.
- If you use small reusable jack o’ lanterns, you can place them in the windows of your home, to cast an eerie light on your front yard.
Spiders fit right into a spooky Halloween theme. You can transform a few black trash bags into a giant spider that fits on your front porch, or up in a tree. You can also make multiple giant spiders and cluster them across the front and sides of your home.
- You need nine black trash bags and stuffing such as newspaper, left over packing materials, or even leaves.
- Fill one trash bag with stuffing and tie it closed to create the spider’s body.
- Hold the second trash bag on its side and fill the length with stuffing.
- Wrap the empty bag around the stuffing several times, so that it looks like a spider’s arm, and secure it with a tie. Repeat this for the other seven legs.
- Use a glue gun to secure the legs to the body.
If you have a collection of milk jugs in your recycling bin, you can create a ghost-lit walkway that your trick-or-treaters will love. Look online to get inspirations for designing your ghosts’ faces. The Scream mask makes an instantly recognizable, scary ghost face that you can easily replicate on your milk jugs.
- For this project, you need several milk jugs, some black construction paper, and enough artificial candles to fill the jugs.
- Wash and dry each milk jug.
- Once dry, use a knife to cut a small hole in the bottom of each jug.
- Make ghost faces for each jug by cutting out a pair of eyes, a nose, and a mouth from the black construction paper.
- Turn the jug so that the handle faces the back. Glue the faces onto the front of the jug and place an artificial candle inside.
- Line the jugs along your walkway and turn the candles on. The jugs light up, illuminating the faces.
You can turn clear plastic gloves into severed hands, and then place them around your house, sneak them into a chip bowl, or even make a garland out of hands. Whenever possible, use a fake hand to shake hands with arriving guests, and then release the hand and feign dismay.
- Fill a plastic glove with tissue paper, popcorn, or small shredded paper waste. You can also open up the gloves and fill them with freshly mixed JELL-O, for jiggly, realistic-feeling hand.
- Tie the open end of the glove with a clear elastic band to secure its contents.
- If you want to hang your hands, slide a paperclip through one loop of the elastic band.
A simple Halloween banner is an artsy and cheap way to add some festive decorations to the inside of your house. Depending on the look you’re going for, you can make your garland eerie or more fall-oriented and cheery.
These instructions focus on making a garland with a message, but you have unlimited options when creating your Halloween garland. String paper pumpkins, ghosts, and vampires to make an eerie garland for your party. Use oversized paper cutouts of candy corn, candies, and popcorn for a garland over the snack table.
- Decide on a saying for your garland. For example, you can do a simple “Happy Halloween” or “Trick or Treat.”
- Select a color palette for the paper. If you want an eerie look, black, red, and green work well. If you want a festive look, brown, orange, red, and purple work nicely.
- Cut the paper into small squares or triangles, until you have one piece for each letter of your saying.
- Use paint markers or a sharpie to draw each letter on to the paper.
- Punch a small hole in the top with a hole punch. Slide a paper clip through each hole.
- Attach the letters to a long piece of twine.
- Hang your garland over a doorway or a mantle.
With a few pieces of felt and some tape, you can have a gang of bats flying around your living room in no time. You can easily make bats and put them up just about anywhere.
