Super Simple DIY Halloween Decorating – Budget Friendly

Simple Hallloween DIY Decorating

My sons love Halloween, creating a totally new look for our home indoors and out has become a fun family tradition.  I am sharing a few ideas today on how to decorate for Halloween without breaking the bank. I am always on the lookout for cheap basics ribbons with wiring built-in to decorate for holidays as it can spice up just about any simple thing in the house. For example black ribbon with white polka dots, orange and black mesh ribbon for decorating banisters, lighting and garlands.  Candy corns in jars and bowls, simple tiny pumpkins and a dollar store back of spiders.  It does not cost a bundle and the children have the best time making the house ” not so scary” spooky.  You can distress an old white or black table-cloth or sheet and use it to cover a sitting chair or table.  These items are great to collect because they back flat, much like that spooky gauze you can buy at the store.

In a nutshell, use what you have on hand and add some fun fall colors!  Don’t spend tons of money!  It’s the laughter and silliness of the holiday that your children will remember!


Mesh Ribbon Decor for Halloween

Simple black and orange mess bow on this outdoor fixture. Love it! This mesh is awesome to use on many items in your home, I love using it in garlands which will be our new Halloween project this year!
I really enjoyed the need finds on Jenny Decorates, take a look.


This is my little guy age 3, I think.  These are simple acrulic paints and a small orange pumpkin.  Now, it is not going to be Martha Stewart perfect, but it was super cute with just the little paint he added and HE did it all by himself!  Here is the post.  Little Hands Pumpkin Fun
