Every year customers stroll through our store searching for unique, fun, and spooky ways to decorate. This year is no different! We have put together some cute and creepy Halloween decorating ideas for the entire family.

1. DIY Potion Bottles and Jars

Raid the recycling bin for old glass bottles, such as wine, ketchup, sparkling water, or jelly jars. Spray paint them black or gray and attach fun homemade or printable labels.

5. Hanging Jack-O-Lanterns

Use fishing line to create a creepy floating effect for hanging artificial jack-o-lanterns from the ceiling. The line is almost invisible and lightweight yet sturdy enough. Use battery-powered lights to add an eerie glow effect.

With a couple of cans of spray paint, a bit of glitter, ribbon and a glue gun you can magically transform pumpkins from blah to fabulous.

7. Trick or Treat Lanterns

Turn old tin cans into whimsical lanterns. Remove all the labels. Use a hammer and nails to punch out spooky messages or images. Spray paint the cans fun Halloween colors. Place battery-powered candles inside to add luminescence either inside or outside your home.
