Do you have an archway at home? Decorate it with some colored papers and create an image of a big mouth ready to devour your guests. You can cut out triangular shapes and string it like a garland to look like pointed teeth of your monster. Draw big eyes and other colorful shapes to make your monster less scary for the little kids.

Mason jars are so in the trend so you’ll definitely have plenty of jars available at home for some trick-or-treat decorations. Simply draw ghouls and monster faces on your jars and light them up at night with flickering candle lights.

  1.    Halloween Window Décor

Darken your indoors and decorate your windows with orange and black colored papers for some fun Halloween-inspired décor. Simply cover your window glasses with orange construction paper and then attach cutouts on black paper or cardboard of silhouettes of haunted trees, witches, skulls and other Halloween symbols.

  1.   Body parts jars

Explore the gory side of Halloween and decorate your lawn or your porch with several jars containing body parts. You can simply buy slay or plastic-shaped body parts and place them inside jars with different colored liquid inside. To add gore to your décor, you can also add red streaks on your jars so they’ll look bloody.

There are more ways and DIY projects that you can do alone or together with your kids or the whole family to have a more interesting and creative Halloween décor for this year’s Halloween festivities.
