I love Halloween. I know it’s not for everyone, but my family loves it. We live in a neighborhood that widely participates with dressing up, passing out candy, hayrides, and chili pot lucks. Every year, it’s a huge party for adults and kids alike and it never disappoints.

9 DIY Halloween Decorations

Halloween Yard Art

Halloween sign \"Clifton school of witchcraft\"

This is one of my faves – How cute is it to have a personalized Halloween sign with your family name or whatever saying you choose? You can get as creative or spooky as you want with vinyl! This is by far one of my favorite DIYs!

DIY Halloween Wall Art

These are made from Dollar store supplies so not only are they an easy DIY, but they are super cheap Halloween decorations too!

DIY Skeleton House

A haunted house-shaped \"Countdown to Halloween\" calendar hanging on a wall.

This one from Little Miss Celebration is amazing! I know it will take some time, but I would love pulling this one out of storage year after year! She made it perfect with those creepy hands jumping out at you!

DIY Witch Hat Wreath

A black and white Halloween sign hangs on the front of a blue house.

Can we just talk for a minute about this entire porch area from Chicken Scratch NY?? It’s perfectly festive and that DIY wreath is so simple, yet so cute. If you don’t consider yourself crafty, this would be a great place to start. I’ll be making one of these this year for sure!

DIY Halloween Luminaries

Glowing mason jar jack-o-lanterns.

These are just the cutest jars from Crafts By Amanda! Grab some mason jars, old sauce jars, whatever you have and the spooky, fun options are endless!

DIY Halloween Ornament

Twin Dragon Fly Designs shows you how to make this adorable hanging ornament! It’ll be a fun craft to make with the kiddos too. Grab some wood slices and supplies at any craft store and let the kids make their own designs.

Mini Halloween in a Jar

Mini Halloween in a jar craft with a witch and skeleton figurines.

Amy from DIY Candy has tons of the most amazing Halloween DIY’s and it was hard to choose just one! This miniature version of Halloween in a jar was just too fun not to include. These would be great sitting on a Halloween inspired mantel!

DIY Embellished Pumpkins

A shiny silver pumpkin, a white and black polka dot pumpkin, and a black pumpkin with the word \"boo\" and a spider web written with rhinestones on a table.

Check out these adorable pumpkins from Blooming Homestead! No one said pumpkins have to stay orange! I’m planning to grab a few of these at the craft or dollar store and make some with the kids and a few grown-up versions for myself!

Halloween Mini Wreath

There are so many DIY wreath ideas for Halloween, but this one from Create Craft Love is one of my faves! The embellishments on the side make it perfect and you could customize the ribbon however you like!

Are you inspired yet to DIY some of your own Halloween decorations? I get overloaded with the crafty ideas this time of year because Halloween is almost my favorite holiday. There are no rules (decorating rules are odd to me anyway – just do what you like). You can go creepy, silly, scary, or fun. And the options to save some money and make some of your own super cool DIY  Halloween decorations are endless!

Boo! Pin for later!Pinterest graphic with text that reads \"DIY Halloween Decor\" and a collage of handmade Halloween decorations.
