DIY Halloween Decor Tips in 2022
One of our favorite ways to decorate for Halloween is by using transferware pumpkins. You can find these at most craft stores, and they are usually made out of white ceramic. To turn them into spooky jack-o-lanterns, all you need is some black transfer paper and a little bit of imagination. Simply cut out your desired design on the black transfer paper and adhere it to the pumpkin. Once you've done that, you can either place a candle inside of the pumpkin or use it as part of a larger Halloween display.
Mummy Mason Jars
Another great way to decorate for Halloween is by using mummy mason jars. This is a really simple DIY project that you can do with things that you probably already have around your house. All you need is some white electrical tape and a few mason jars. Wrap the electrical tape around the jar in a spiral pattern, leaving small gaps in between so that the light can shine through. Once you've wrapped the entire jar, add a battery-operated candle inside and voila! You've got yourself a spooky mummy mason jar.
If you're looking for a more traditional way to decorate your pumpkins, then painting them is always a great option. You can either freehand your designs or use stencils to create whatever look you're going for. Once you've painted your pumpkin, you can either leave it as is or add some extra embellishments like googly eyes or sequins.
Grain Sack Pumpkins
For a more rustic look, try using grain sack pumpkins. These are really easy to make and only require a few materials. You'll need some burlap (or another type of fabric), stuffing, and twine. Cut the fabric into strips and then tie them around the pumpkin in a spiral pattern. Once you've covered the entire pumpkin, add some stuffing to give it a plump look. Finally, tie a length of twine around the top of the pumpkin and you're done!
Halloween is just around the corner, so now is the time to start thinking about how you're going to decorate your home. We hope that these tips and tricks will help you create a spooktacular display that your guests will love. Happy Halloween!
