Decorating your house this Halloween does not have to leave you with an empty pocket. You can give a second use to things you already have at home, or buy new for a small amount. Creativity is everything, get your little ones involved and you will see that they will have a lot of fun. Here are 30 ideas to decorate your house for Halloween without spending a lot.
To decorate a Halloween party without spending much, you must prepare some decorations yourself that you can easily make with your own hands, so you will not spend much. For example, something very original is to build these napkin rings in the shape of bats that will give a unique touch to your table. To do so, you just have to follow the steps that we propose in this one in addition, you will discover how to make a paper boat suitable both for your napkins and to hang in different corners of your home.
If children will also participate in your Halloween party, we recommend that you create a piñata like the one you can see in the attached image. It involves inflating a balloon and covering it with strips of a newspaper; put three layers to be consistent and not puncture at the first change.
When it is dry you can puncture the balloon and introduce the candies or toys that you want the piñata to contain. Then characterize it as you like, getting a look similar to a skull. Discover here the step-by-step that will show you how to make a skull piñata.
Obviously, a Halloween party should not miss the famous pumpkin with a terrifying gesture, yet another way to decorate a Halloween party without spending a lot of money. This decorative element is very easy to get and, in addition, ecological since we will use the meat of the pumpkin to prepare a recipe such as a cream or a cake and we will customize the exterior to give it that touch so typical of the celebration.
Once you have the pumpkin completely empty, you will have to take a fairly sharp knife and, very carefully, begin to draw the macabre smile and those special eyes that they have. If you want to give your home a unique touch, choose to insert a candle inside, which will achieve the dark and perfect lighting for the occasion.
A highly recommended option to decorate a Halloween party without spending a lot is to create some crafts with cardboard and that remember elements worthy of a night like this. For example, in the image, we suggest that you take advantage of both kitchen and bathroom paper rolls to create cute bats.
You’ll need cardstock to make the wings and black paint, and voila! Place them in corners of your house or hang them from the ceiling holding them with strings, your guests will be amazed!
Another very simple craft to do and that will give your Halloween decoration a terrifying touch are these cute balloons that emulate terror gestures. It is very easy to do them because you will only have to get hold of different types of balloons of various colors and with a black permanent marker. Blow up the balloons and (carefully so they don’t burst) draw different types of faces, eyes, and expressions. Imagination to power!
The coffee capsules also serve to create fun Halloween crafts without spending, just reusing what you no longer use at home. To do this, you will only have to clean them, empty them and stomp them against the ground so that they are compressed to the maximum and are completely flat. The best thing is that if you want to make bats you opt for capsules that are dark in color.
Then you just have to get yourself with black cardboard to make the wings and then with pieces of paper, you can create the eyes and teeth or the nose of this nice animal. Then you can tie a rope to them or, if you want, stick them on the walls with tape.
In addition to decorating your home to everything that is Halloween, you can also surprise your guests with a menu adapted to the night of October 31. Dinner can be normal, but during dessert time you can opt for some rather sinister sweets: bananas in the shape of ghosts, chocolate cemeteries, cookies that are absolutely scary, and so on.
