The Eerie Living Room
What you’ll need: White sheets
Do you have those never-been-used white sheets lying around your house? If you do, now is the time to utilise them. Easily drape those white sheets around your tables, chairs, sofas, or other furniture to create a seemingly isolated and eerie house.
DIY Spider Web
What you’ll need: Yarn and adhesive tape
Before checking out Amazon or eBay for ready-made webs, try this DIY spider web first. All you need is a ball of yarn with the colour of your choice, an adhesive tape, and patience. For this spider web, we will be using two strands of yarn for every line we make. That way it will be sturdier.
First, unroll some yarn then fold it in half. Then, make an X depending on how big you want your spider web to be. Use some adhesive tape to secure each yarn’s end. Add additional lines around the previous X you’ve made, so it will turn out like this:
After which, make your knot (shown below) on whichever string you like, then loop it around the other strings until it makes a full web.
What you’ll need: plaster skull, one-inch hole saw drill, white primer spray paint, gold spray paint with aluminium finish (or whatever colour you like), white clay, white and red (optional) candles
How could we not include candles, right? In fact, you could just buy any white and red candle and you’re all set! Just add a creepy skull to mix things up. Listed below are the materials needed. You could get this at your nearest craft store, especially at this time of the year.
First, draw a hole to mark each candle’s placement. Once done, use your drill to make the hole. If ever you drill all the way through, use the white clay to patch things up and to make a base where your candle will stand.
After which, spray the white primer paint all over the skull. Let it dry then apply the gold spray. Always remember to let it try in between coats.
Now, try to fit your white candles to see if they are snug enough. If not, you could just use a knife to carve the excess candle base. You could also use the white clay if the candle has a loose fit.
To top things off, remove your white candles again and drizzle them with a red melted candle wax for a bloody effect. This step is optional. But, if you do have more time, then by all means.
Witch Riding in the Moonlight
What you’ll need: putty-coloured paint, natural sponge, round lamp, black construction paper
To do this project, you could get those moon lamps available online. If you don’t find one, you could use any round light fixture. Coat the inside of the round lamp with putty-coloured paint using a natural sponge to achieve the moon-like texture.
Then, using a black construction paper, cut out a picture of a witch riding on a broomstick. Secure it firmly onto the light fixture, then, there you have it!
What you’ll need: plaster/plastic/ready-to-paint pumpkins, paint, and a paintbrush
Pumpkin carving takes a lot of time, and we know that you don’t have that luxury. So, ride on the no-carve pumpkin trend and paint them instead! You could buy a ready-to-paint pumpkin at Esty, Michaels, Amazon, or at your nearest craft store. These no-carve pumpkins can definitely be reused too! See these fun examples below.
What you’ll need: Black cardboards, scissors
Here’s a sure way to make a macabre Halloween design using cut-outs! Get large pieces of black cardboard and cut out zombie arms, as many as possible. After that, plant these arms on your lawn and see how passersby react.
You could also decorate your interior with flying bats cutouts. Just fold a sheet of black construction paper and cut out a bat’s wing design, then stick it with a double adhesive tape around your house!
Flowers of Death
What you’ll need: Floral wire, double-sided tape, and black Crêpe paper.
Ditch the colourful flowers and replace them with blossoms from the dark side.
First, bend an 18-inch floral wire in half, then wrap double-sided tape around the wire’s bent end for about five times.
And then, loosely wrap the black Crêpe paper around the wire four times to create the flower’s bud, pinching the bottom edge of the paper against the wire as you go. Continue wrapping the paper around the wire, gathering the paper at the flower’s base until you have a full flower. Repeat several times until you have enough flowers.
Mason Jar Chandelier
What you’ll need: mason jars, wooden broom, black sand, battery-operated black candles, faux feline (optional).
Spruce up your dining room with a little dark magic vibe. Hang a plain broom onto ceiling using black twine. And then, get four to five mason jars then fill it with black sand and top it with battery-operated black candles. Attach mason jars to broom using black twine. To add a witch’s lair vibe, you could also add a black faux feline on the broom using a black wire.
