5 Super Easy DIY Halloween Decorations

Milk Jugs into Ghosts

1.) Clear Plastic Jugs into a Spectral Chorus

This project is incredibly easy, and you probably already have most of the supplies you need sitting around the house.

You will Need:

  • 1 Permanent Marker (Black works best)
  • Sharp Knife
  • Milk or Water Jugs (empty)
  • String of White or Clear Holiday Lights

According to the site Little Miss Redhead, this project works best if you draw on the ghostly faces with the cap still on your jug, so that it does not cause any indentations. When you have your ghostly face drawn on to the front of the jug, arrange as many as you would like together and cut a small hole in the back of each jug, large enough to stuff some of your holiday lights inside. According to the author of the site, this also works with electric lights. DO NOT USE A CANDLE.

If you like easy, this is the perfect Halloween DIY for you. All you need is a bag of large pretzel rods, and a bag of mini Reese’s peanut butter cups.

Cute Carton of Ghost Eggs

Nothing is more essential to Halloween than the appearance of a few ghosts!

All you need is a carton of eggs and a black permanent marker. This also works if the eggs are boiled beforehand, to eliminate the risk of a messy situation.


4.) Decorate Some Fallen Branches


This DIY for Halloween only requires a few branches from your yard. Feel free to get creative, like in this photo, and add your own votive pieces, or other Halloween decorations.

5.) Apple Candles

This easy DIY craft comes from Women’s Day. All you need is a bag of apples; a spoon; a black marker; a knife; lemon juice and a bag of small tea candles.

If you would like to use the apples in a floating tub, says Women’s Day, first place each apple in a tub of water to see the position in which it floats. This will determine the angle you should place your hole, for the best results.

“Center tea light over dot; trace outline with knife, cutting as deep as tea light depth,” instructs Women’s Day. “Scoop out marked area; slice apple within marked area to make it easier to scoop. Squeeze lemon juice over cut surface of each apple.”
