Step 1: Look for the weirdest pumpkins that look like a lazy stretched out cat, one for the head and another for the body and also a cucumber for legs and tail. Cut out the top of a small pumpkin and scoop out the inside. Place it upside down on the base pumpkin. If necessary, score the opening slightly to adjust. Cut out the eyes.

Step 2: Cut pointed ears from cardboard. Cut two shallow grooves in the head to hold the ears. For a more realistic look, carve crescent-shaped grooves.

Step 4: Stuff the head with loosely crumpled newspaper. Cover pumpkins and cucumber with one or two thin coats of black spray paint. Allow to dry. Remove stuffing and insert the ears.

Step 5: Put a short tealight on a lid. Adhere to the top of the large pumpkin with a small blob of polymer clay or poster putty. Attach the head. Place cat and arrange tail and paws next to body. Your whimsical cat pumpkins are ready. You can read the detailed guide here.

Step 1: Start with a mason jar that has at least one side that is smooth with no relief. Add a strip of masking tape to the smooth side.

Step 2: Print fantastic spooky skulls freely available on the internet and stick them on the pot. Then use a craft knife to go all around the outer edge of the skull, as well as the eyes and nose in the middle. Be sure to cut through the paper template as well as the masking tape. Do any inner parts like the eyes first and then do the outer parts.

Step 3: Remove the pieces you cut and you are left with a skull shape on your mason jar. Repeat with as many jars as you like.

Step 4: Then spray paint the jars black. Let dry and then go over the top with the purple mist color paint. Allow to dry before continuing.

Step 5: Use your craft knife to help you get under your masking tape and lift up the skull shape.

Step 6: Pop in a candle and your Halloween lanterns are complete!

Step 1: Find some old bottles of different shapes and sizes that are usually found at a flea market or a local market. Then print some cool labels for your potion jars.

Step 2: Use the classic technique of tea dyeing to create the mottled, brown aged paper look of your labels. Use a wet tea to stain and stain the paper. Cut out the labels and press out the edges by holding the paper to a candle flame. It will curl and brown beautifully.

Step 3: Glue the finished potion labels to your glass bottles with a hot glue gun.

Step 4: Fill your DIY liquor bottles with a mix of different liquids and solids to make perfectly spooky and fun Halloween decorations. Use food coloring and water.

Step 1: Cut off the top of a water bottle.

Step 2: Cut the bottle into four equal leaves and bend out.

Step 3: Cut the straight edges of the petals into curved edges to simulate the petals.

Step 4: Paint the Water Bottle flowers with red acrylic paint or red spray paint. Paint two coats if necessary and let dry.

Step 5: Cut petals from one of the painted flowers and paste them on another flower to give it a fuller look, turning it into an eight petal flower.

Step 6: Dry brush the flower with black acrylic paint. To dry brush, use a clean brush, dip it in a small amount of paint and wipe most of it off on a piece of paper. Paint the remaining paint on the flowers around the center and sides of the leaves to give them an aged look.

Step 7: Using permanent markers, draw the iris, pupil and red veins on the Styrofoam ball. Use a bottle cap to hold the eye-catching ball. Using a hot glue gun, attach the eyeballs to the center of the flowers.

Step 8: Glue skewers to the back of the eyeball flowers and arrange them in a vase. Decorative branches painted black, black leaves and red roses can be added to the Halloween centerpiece to enhance the dramatic, spooky display.

Now that you have some great Halloween ideas, create your own and have fun!
