10 DIY Halloween Craft Ideas

Posted on

Halloween: The one time a year when excessive amounts of candy, food that looks like it’s fit for a vampire and spooky home decor is totally acceptable - and we’re so here for it! If you weren’t in the Halloween mood already, you will be after seeing these super ghoul DIY craft ideas.

From floating candles to "vampire blood soup" and pumpkins that look like the night sky, you're sure to be inspired to get those creative juices flowing.

With these 10 DIY craft ideas, wicked’s never looked so cute. Ready? Ok, let’s get Halloweird! (We’re done with Halloween puns now, promise.)

Instead of carving traditional Jack-o’lantern faces on your pumpkin this year, switch things up and transform your pumpkin into a replica of the night sky. This DIY constellation jack-o’-lantern from PopSugar will have you stargazing at all your favorite constellations - right from your living room.

This lighted Halloween topiary from DIY Candy is the perfect mix of sweet and spooky. And the awesome thing about this pumpkin topiary - besides the fact that it’s adorable - is that since it’s made out of faux pumpkins, you don’t have to worry about it rotting!

Our Swig Life team had so much fun making our new Matte wine cups into Swig-o’-lanterns - and now you can too! Instructions for applying vinyl decals can be found here; and in place of the vinyl decals included, use these Jack-o’-lantern face decals.

We might not typically want to drink “vampire blood” soup or eat “monster” sandwiches; however, that’s what Halloween is for! Adults and kids alike will love the creepy vibe of drinking The Food Network’s red tomato soup from test tubes and eating the playful “monster” sandwiches made with Muenster (get it?) 

5. Mason Jar Luminaries

If you’re a Harry Potter fan like us, you might recognize these floating candles from the ones that float in Hogwarts’ Great Hall. Inspired by the candles in the movie, these candles by The Sway are an easy but impressive way of decorating your home’s hallways for the Fall holidays. (Don’t worry - you won’t have to get your wands out to put out any fires; these candles’ flames aren’t real!)

Looking for a scary (but not too scary) way to decorate your home for this year’s trick-or-treaters? These colorful glowing eyes are perfect for hiding around the yard. All you need for this craft from Rust and Sunshine are some paper towel or toilet paper rolls, glow sticks, duct tape and an X-ACTO knife!
