7 Fun Indoor Decorations to Craft for Halloween

Who else can’t wait for Halloween? It’s one of the best times of the year, thanks to the spooktacular creativity that crafters can demonstrate – bright colours, creepy decs and delightful treats. Halloween’s still a few weeks away, but time flies when you’re having fun, so why not get ahead of the crafting game now, and treat your home to these wonderful makes?

7 Fun Indoor Decorations to Craft for Halloween

1. Wine Glass Candle Holders

Nothing sets up a spooky atmosphere better than candlelight, and upside-down repurposed wine glasses can be turned into the perfect Halloween candle holders – just be very careful when decorating them if they’re actually made from glass. You could even top them off with your own custom-made candles – try our Candle Making Starter Kit with Chocolate Orange Scent.

2. Paper Pumpkins

Carla Bagshaw’s adorable little pumpkins make great decorations dotted around the house and the best part is they won’t go bad once Halloween is over, meaning you can use them again and again – check out her tutorial here to make them for yourself! The little gourds look best in warm colours, so pick up a pack like American Crafts Autumn Cardstock and get crafting.

3. Ghost Coasters

Here’s a fabulous way to add a spooky touch to your home – ghost coasters! The rhyme just makes it even better. Mandy Cameron’s put together a fantastic free crochet pattern for you to enjoy here. Not only will they protect your table from messy spills or bumps, but if you make a few, you can even string them up for a lovely Halloween bunting.

4. Candy Corn Plant Pots

Whether you like candy corn or not, the bright colours are unequivocally linked to Halloween, and they look great when applied to any decorations. Give your plant pots a vibrant lick of paint; using a kit like the A Color Glossy Acrylic Paint makes it a really easy project. You could even make some crepe flowers that suit the pots, like orange pansies or spooky black roses.

5. Spider Garland

A simple garland like this is super easy to make: as you fold a long sheet of paper up tightly sideways, make some cuts that overlap the edges – either by hand or using a die like the spider in Sweet Dixie Spiders and Web Die Set. Then, when you unfold it, you should have a long line of similarly shaped spiders. Just make sure you don’t cut too much off of the folds, or it’ll fall to pieces when opened up.

6. Party Food

While lockdown has sadly put a stop to trick-or-treating and big parties, you can still have little get-togethers with your closest friends or family, and we’ve got the perfect treats for such an occasion here! From witch finger biscuits to spider cake pops, these six tasty and easy-to-follow Halloween recipes are sure to delight even the fussiest of ghosts, goblins and guests.

7. Luminaires

If you have any spare jars, why not upcycle them into clever lights? Sarah Cawood has put together a fab tutorial here to make some spooky luminaires using only tissue paper and paint pens. It’s a great project to get your little ones involved in, as you can have lots of messy fun creating spooky characters and giving them funny faces. Then, simply pop in a small tealight for that perfect eerie glow.
