Halloween is only a few days away and if you don’t have your decorations out yet you may think it isn’t worth it to still put them out. Or maybe you agreed to host a party, but haven’t had a second to put together fun festive ideas for it. Don’t worry, there is still time to fill your home with creative Halloween fun. Start by getting different sized pumpkins. You can use them to make a quick drink cooler, small decorations for your mantel or to create a centerpiece. Construction paper can also go a long way to add to the Halloween flair around your home. Create bats to fill your front porch or decorate candy treat bags for the kids. Use water filled jars and vases to create spooky elixirs or potions to cover your tables. You can also do a quick online search for free spooky printable labels and signs to decorate your snack table, cover your potion jars, or direct people around the party. Have a few potatoes lying around? Carve skull shapes into them and create a stamp that you can use to decorate bags, candles, signs and banners around your home. Even newspaper can be used to transform your undecorated home into a Halloween haven. Just scour your home and get creative. You may not have a lot of time, but you can have a lot of fun filling your home for Halloween.
Halloween’s just around the corner, but it’s not too late to enhance your haunted house, add a touch of fright to party decor, or prepare for trick-or-treaters. Get into the spooky spirit with these 25 quick and stress-free Halloween ideas. Need a quick ice bucket for your Halloween bash? Carve your pumpkin into a festive cooler. Just choose a large, wide pumpkin, cut off the top third with a serrated knife or keyhole saw, and scrape out the pulp and seeds. Line the gourd with a glass or plastic bowl to prevent it from becoming waterlogged. If the pumpkin opening is a bit too small for the bowl, carefully shave the inside edge with a spoon. Finish by filling the bowl with ice and bottled drinks.
