This first decoration is perfect if you're looking for something a little bit more sophisticated than your typical Halloween fare. Skull string art is a great way to add a touch of class to your home while still keeping things festive. And the best part is, it's super fun to make!


All you need is a piece of 1/2" thick plywood, nails, black paint, and white string (or try glow-in-the-dark hemp cord!).

These next decorations are perfect to hang in windows or out in the yard— anywhere that could use a little bit of extra spookiness!


To make these cute little ghosts, you'll need clear plastic Christmas ornaments, glow sticks, black felt, a glue gun, fishing wire, and cheesecloth (check the baking aisle).

Last but not least is this Pumpkin Topiary—a perfect addition to any front porch or entryway. And after Halloween is over, just turn it around to the non-jack-o-lantern side and enjoy this planter through the end of Fall!


To make this tower planter, you'll need a steel bar or a dowel, a drill, pumpkin candy buckets, glue, scissors, and your choice of flowers (real or fake). Optionally, if you choose fake flowers, you can add some fairy lights to make it glow at night!
