Halloween will be here soon, but there's still time to decorate your home for the holiday with these creative ideas:
- Front Door Monster
Transform your front door into a not-too-scary monster! My Life and Kids has a step-by-step tutorial to make this fun Halloween door with plywood and Mod Podge so it will last for several Halloweens.
- Chalkboard Stones
Add a little "Boo!" to your front walk or create a centerpiece with chalkboard stones. Life of a Modern Mom shares the easy directions to make these, and kids can have fun changing the message as often as they like—maybe even change the number every day for a countdown to Halloween!
- A Glittered Halloween Tree
Martha Stewart explains how to make this amazing indoor decorative tree, complete with DIY Halloween ornaments and a spooky spider.
- Egg Carton Bats and Leaf Ghosts
This project from Happy Clippings is perfect to do with kids. Bats are made with black paint and cut-up egg cartons, and fabric leaves are transformed into ghosts with white paint.
