My sister is crazy creative and talented. And her house is always decked out for the holidays. It’s such a joy to see all the hard work she puts into it. Check out some of these amazing and affordable DIY Halloween decorations and how you can make them for your own home.


You know the house is going to be awesomely decorated when this greets you at the front door. This wreath is all DIY starting with the base wreath from Michaels for about $5. The skeleton was the most expensive part at about $10 at Walmart. But you’ll see soon, that every piece of the skeleton was stretched among other decorations. The awesomely creepy sign and the black flowers were just a few bucks at Family Dollar.



This is where the rest of that skeleton went. Such a simple idea, sticking it on an existing chest with some creepy looking grey gauze from the dollar store. What do you think, is he trying to crawl in or out?!



These decoupage skulls are my favorite. The skulls, from last year’s Halloween clearance at Michaels, are covered in tissue paper applied with Mod Podge. Genius!



Few things make as big of an impact as spooky candles. All you need to do is draw ghost faces with a black permanent marker on white pillar candles. These candles were just $1 each at Family Dollar. The ‘B-O-O’ letters from Michaels are pinned on an existing candelabra.



Even the liquor cabinet gets a ghoulish makeover with these awesome labels printed from the internet.



And some picture frames get a macabre makeover with more free online printables.



And check out these creative uses of vases and lanterns. The Halloween buildings can be found at lots of dollar stores.

Special thanks to my sister Angie (far right) and niece Hannah (second from the right), pictured here with me and my daughter in Houston.
