7. Spooky Terrarium



The cute woodland world gets a spooky twist from Today’s Creative Blog. After you search the backyard for twigs, moss, and rocks, scour the house for small Halloween-themed decorations like skulls and scary birds. Then, build your scene on an upside-down lid of a Mason jar. When your miniature landscape looks complete, screw the jar onto the lid and place in the window or next to your front door in lieu of a pumpkin. Want to take your decorations to the next level? Here's how to make your home into a haunted house.


8. Picture-Frame Lanterns



Guide your guests to the front door with illuminated picture lanterns. To make these, four inexpensive picture frames are nailed together to make a square. Halloween drawings are printed on vellum paper then inserted into the frames, then a candle is set inside the frames. Get the step-by-step instructions >>



9. Dripping" Candles



Dribble glue from a hot-glue gun all over a piece of PVC pipe and a foam cup to make what looks like a long-burning candle. Insert a much-safer battery-operated tealight in the middle to make the candle glow. If the candles are placed under a black light, they will glow in the dark – perfect for any haunted house. Get the step-by-step instructions >>


10. Bloody Footprints



Lead trick-or-treaters to your door with a trail of bloody footprints. Simply step into washable red paint with bare feet, then carefully walk towards the front door. Make sure to carry your paint supply with you, should you need to redo your feet, and don't forget to have a towel waiting for you at the end of your walk for easy cleanup.
