Learn how to make these DIY Halloween decorations, perfect for beginning crafters on a budget! These ideas will change your holiday decor.

DIY Halloween decor for your home

I don’t know about you, but there are a few things I think about when Halloween comes into my mind. I’ll happily and proudly say that candy is the first thing. Sugar and I have a great relationship and there’s a lot I’ll do for a Reese’s pumpkin.

But right after candy is not even costumes – it’s the Halloween crafts (including crafts for kids) and the painted pumpkins. Yep, it’s the decor! I absolutely love decorating for the holidays, and homemade Halloween decorations are my favorite.

There’s something that pleases me about Halloween decor . . . and doing it yourself. It can be really inexpensive if you: 1) buy things on sale from previous years and 2) dig for items around the house to use as surfaces or supplies.

You can typically make holiday decor for pretty cheap if you’re willing to get creative.

The dollar store and Goodwill are also great places to find unique surfaces and supplies. I’ve seen people turned used baby doll heads into unique mummy wall art. Think outside the box, and you’ll have the most awesome Halloween decor ever!

To celebrate the holiday, I pulled together a list of 50+ DIY Halloween decorations I think you should try. Okay, maybe you don’t need to try all 50, but you’re sure to love something from this list.

All of them are perfect for beginners and none of them are too expensive to make. Scroll down to see my holiday decorating picks!

Thanks for the great suggestions. I love the kid friendly activities. After all, Halloween is a kids holiday. Every year my son loves to help make treats, and we always do the "You've Been Booed" with the neighbors.
