Handy Candy Dish
Do you remember “Thing” from the Addams Family? Well for this idea we are going to bring “Thing” back but in a good way. This idea works best for parties and small get-togethers. But take a candy dish, tray, large bowl or plate that has some type of food, drink or item on it and place a stuffed black glove or a severed hand in the center of the dish holding a card. Now it is completely up to you for what you want the card to say. You could describe what’s on the dish, state a greeting, have a haunted saying etc. again up to you! Or, you can put the hand to the side like the image above you will still get the same effect.
Mirror, Mirror on the Wall – Halloween Craft Ideas
Now this idea can be used for any mirror that is placed around the home. From the mirror placed in the entryway all the way to the mirror that is in the bathroom, it doesn’t matter. First, cut some construction paper or if you can find a marker that can be erased on a mirror, cut or draw a crazy hairstyle and place it in the center of the mirror. That way anyone who looks into it will have a funky hairstyle on top of their heads for them to remember.
Toilet Paper Disguises and Ghost Tootsies
Toilet paper is used for so many things and now we are going to use it for something else. First, you can wrap the toilet paper in orange tissue paper and tie it at the top then put a face on it to look like a pumpkin jack-o-lantern. Or you can just take a roll of toilet paper and paste a face on the paper with black felt and glue. Either way you have your own mini disguise showcase for all to see. Now for the ghosts. (This trick can also be a treat for kids) Take a tootsie roll pop and place a small cloth over it, then take a ribbon or string and tie it in a knot underneath the tootsie head then draw a cute face on it. These make great goodie gifts as well!
Halloween Decorating Idea: Walking Table
One simple decoration that you do not have to go on a splurge for is dressing up your table legs, literally. Take four long socks that you might have (preferably those that have Halloween designs on them) and slip them on the legs of your display table. Then for spunk, take 2 pairs of shoes and place one shoe on the bottom of each leg. This will definitely be a crowd pleaser and one that the smaller kids will love and enjoy!
Halloween is always a super fun time of the year. It’s filled with spooks, candy, mystery and fun. So for this year go all out without having to go all in your wallet. It’s the little things that can make a huge difference. So take at the ideas above and also see what you can come up with then have a Happy Halloween!
