Get into the spirit of Halloween with decorations that will make you scream with delight! Save on the expense of store bought with a little help from Aleene's Glues and your own crafty touch. From creepy to cute, the following DIY Halloween decor ideas will get you inspired to transform your space into a spooktacular display this season! 

Cheesecloth Ghosts

Forget about things that go "bump" in the night ... what about things that go "BOO"?! This DIY Halloween decor is super easy to craft up using only a few supplies. With a foam ball, cheesecloth and Aleene’s Stiffen Quik Fabric Stiffening Spray, you'll have some wickedly fun decorations once the glue dries! Make them in any size you'd like and stand on a tabletop or hang from the ceiling for a boo-tiful Fright Night display.

Paper Halloween Trees

Who said trees are exclusive to Christmas?! Whether your decorating style is silly, chic or seriously spooky, Halloween trees are so easy to make and customize. Use crepe paper and Aleene's Clear Gel Tacky Glue to craft your trees in any size, then decorate with paint, glitter, skeletons, gore, or goop - you get the point. They're perfect for haunting up your front porch, fireplace mantle or even using as a party table centerpiece while your guests get down to the Monster Mash.

Popsicle Stick Haunted House

This DIY Halloween decor idea is fun for your little boys and ghouls! Popsicle sticks are perfect for making Halloween crafts that double as ornaments you can hang in windows, or on those Halloween trees mentioned above. Have your kiddos give them hauntingly creative flair with construction paper, paints and Aleene's Original Tacky Glue

Halloween Luminaries

Light up your Fright Night festivities with an eerie glow! No need to hunt down ghosts and goblins to spook up your space with DIY Halloween decor ... try this faux stained-glass technique with mason jars instead. Then glue on creepy-crawly critters and add candles for a creative way to conjure up an enchanting ambiance this Halloween.

DIY Halloween String Lights

We’ve all made (and continue to make) traditional jack-o-lanterns sitting on the front porch ... but this year, once you've created those freaky faces on pumpkins, add them to string lights too! Make your own set with cotton string, Tacky Glue and a bit of creativity, and set them aglow with your favorite kind and color of lights. It's DIY Halloween decor with a totally custom creep factor!

No-Sew Halloween Banner

Whether hanging over your mantle, window or front door, a Halloween banner is a colorful way to add some extra spirit to your space! Spookiness optional. Use different fabrics, pompoms and Aleene's Fabric Fusion to create a banner that's festive and fun for all ages - with no sewing needed!
