It’s almost that time, Halloween is almost upon us.  Fancy involving the kids in some crafts this year and having some truly unique decorations, then here are my Top 5 DIY Halloween Decorations I’ve found online this year!

BOO Bottles!

So everyone has some bottles laying about.  Whether it’s some bang on trend ‘milk bottles’ bought for a kids party earlier in the year, or maybe some perrier/cider bottles you have ready to recycle.  Make sure you wash them all out thoroughly, soaking off all labels etc. Spray paint them white (you can pick up tester spray paints from B&Q or Hobbycraft), then draw the faces on with black marker.  To finish off some orange/black straw would look awesome (The Range or local Supermarkets).

Pebble Monsters

This is a great idea for the kids to get involved in, and how cute do they look!  You just need some pebbles, acrylic paints, googly eyes and a black sharpie pen. For the full tutorial check out Morning Creativity

Monochrome Pumpkins

If you are a monochrome lover and the thought of introducing orange into the mix is a step too far then what about these fab black and white pumpkins from stylist Liz Demos.  Just choose your pumpkins, paint them in white flat acrylic paint and leave to dry for 20 mins, then create your designs with black paint pens.  For the full tutorial click here

Tea Light Witches

These adorable witches are made from green tea lights!  So simple and easy to make with the kids, you can hang them all over the house! You’ll need green tea lights (Set of 12, £3.99 from Amazon) Googly eyes and black& yellow felt sheets (ready available from all crafts stores or Amazon), Purple rhinestones (1000 for £1.13 from Amazon) and a glue gun (or if you don;t have one to hand then superglue will do, just make sure the children don’t get involved in the gluing!).

So there we have it my top 5 DIY Halloween decorations to make this halloween.  Hope you like! I’m off to get goulish…
