How To Make Cheap Halloween Decorations From Everyday Items (VIDEO)

green-witch-pumpkin-decorations-by-dane_brian.jpg The following DIY Halloween decorations are really inexpensive to make yourself.

The best part about these craft ideas is that they utilize everyday things that you have around the house and they can all be un-done — like this Halloween wreath made from Dollar Store bath scrubbers (instructions here).

So you aren’t damaging any of your favorite things when you turn them into fun Halloween decorations… temporarily.

Yep, these are all reusable items that can be un-done and re-done for virtually any holiday.

They’re not permanent.


As the representative from Parents magazine says in the video below, you can basically go around your house and turn just about anything into a pumpkin. It’s amazing all of the ’round’ things that you can find inside your home to decorate with!

Instructions for each of these Halloween craft ideas are provided in the following video:

  • Along the lines of a Christmas tree… see how to make a Halloween tree like this one.
  • See how you can turn ordinary picture frames into fun Halloween decorations like these.
  • Turn any reusable canvas bag into a Trick-or-Treat bag using nothing but orange tape and green tape (similar to these).
  • See how to turn any throw pillow from your sofa into a pumpkin-shaped throw pillow (aka a Jack-o-Lantern slipcover).
