What are the best homemade Halloween decorations?

Painted pumpkins

Bored of traditional carved pumpkins, or worried that your kids might cut their fingers? We have the perfect solution.

Painting pumpkins is an equally fun activity and can create an even better effect.

Some keep it simple by changing the color of the fall pumpkin.

But you can also decorate with sparkles or add a sinister face to customize the orange food item.

All you need to create a terrifying ghost for your home is a dustbin and some old newspapers (preferably reading copies of The Sun).

Crumple up the papers to create a ball shape for the ghoul’s head, then place in the bottom of the garbage bag.

Tie a string around this “face” and let the rest of the bag hang down.

Draw eyes on the figure and hang from the ceiling to scare everyone.

Creating a bat wreath can be fun for the whole family.

And good news, it’s easily done with a free template that you can print directly from Clip Art.

After cutting out the shapes, decorate them with glitter, paint or colored pencils.

Attach them to a string and hang in the nooks and crannies of your rooms for that haunted house look.

This cheap and cheerful DIY is a simple way to add festive fun to your home.

All you need is a marking pen and a cheap mason jar from a pound shop.

If you want to cut costs even more, wash out an old jam jar to create the same effect.

When you have these two items, draw spooky faces or Day Of The Dead sugar skull faces on the front.

To make these designs pop, feel free to add some tea lights to the glasses to illuminate your characters.

Many Halloween fans put together wreaths for their homes every year.

It can be placed on your front door as a sign for trick or treaters to approach.

To make your own, buy a basic and inexpensive wreath.

You can then add fake spiders, autumn leaves or scary faces to your heart’s content.

What is a Halloween tree and how can I make one?

A Halloween tree is a Christmas tree decorated with Halloween-themed ornaments, such as skulls, ghosts and mini pumpkins.

People who are fans of the haunted holiday and want to celebrate the event for the whole month, like Christmas, started putting up the haunted trees in early October.

It’s easy to get creative by making your own ornaments and decorations for this greenery.

Unlike a traditional Christmas version, you can get as messy as you like and not have to worry about the branches looking a little messy.

You can reuse your winter fairy lights and throw up some fallen leaves from the garden for a fall look.

Others wrapped whimsical chains and wires, along with black tinsel, around the branches.
