1. Spooky Window Silhouettes


Cut out silhouettes of witches, bats, or ghosts from black construction paper and tape them to your windows. When the lights are on inside, these silhouettes will create a spooky, but lighthearted silhouette that will look amazing from the street.


2. Haunted Mirror Illusion


Haunt your mirrors by using glass cleaner to write creepy messages or draw ghostly figures. When seen under the right angle, your mirror monsters will make any passersby jump.


3. Witch Parking


Place a broomstick prop with a "Witch's Broom Parking" sign by your front door, for a fun, less spooky decoration.


4. Macabre Mantle Display


Adorn your mantel with a collection of creepy items, such as vintage apothecary bottles, eerie candelabras, and spellbooks. Add some flickering LED candles to complete the spooky ambiance.


5. Creepy Crawly Garland


String up plastic spiders and black paper bats on a black ribbon to create a creepy garland to hang across doorways, windows, or walls.


6. Wicked Witch Legs


Purchase a pair of striped witch legs and position them to look like they are crashing through the ceiling or sticking out from under furniture. This humorous yet eerie touch will surely catch everyone's attention.


7. Haunted Chandelier


Wrap a chandelier, ceiling fan, or ceiling light in cheesecloth and spiderwebs for a spooky, abandoned look. Dim the lights and add plastic spiders to enhance the effect.


8. Dark Magic Spell Books


Stack old books and wrap them in craft paper or burlap to create an illusion of ancient spell books. Add some spooky labels or runes for an extra witchy touch.


9. DIY Ghosts in the Yard


Stuff white sheets or cheesecloth with newspaper or foam to create ghostly figures and secure them to stakes in your yard.


10. Petrifying Pathway


Line your walkway with faux tombstones made from cardboard, foam, or wooden boards. If you want, you can also write humorous causes of deaths or names on them.


11. Bleeding Candles


Drip red candle wax on white pillar candles to create a creepy dripping blood effect. Place them in candle holders or candelabras to add a gothic charm.


12. Ghostly Draperies


Drape tattered fabric over furniture, mantles, and windows to give your home a ghostly, abandoned look. 


13. Evil Apothecary Jars


Label glass jars with spooky labels like "Witch's Brew," "Zombie Eyes," or "Vampire Fangs." Then, fill the jars with coloured water, dried herbs, or Halloween candies to complete the effect.


With these 13 DIY Halloween decorations, you can effortlessly transform your home into a chilling haunted mansion that will impress and entertain guests of all ages. These life hacks will surely set the stage for a hauntingly delightful Halloween.
