26 Insanely Fun DIY Halloween Decor Ideas

It is now officially fall, and that means Halloween is right around the corner. Halloween is so much fun. All of the pumpkins, scary decorations, and the costumes. It truly does not feel like fall until I see pumpkins and Halloween décor!

Halloween décor is expensive, however. For something that you only have out for a few weeks a year, it seems like paying $30 for a skeleton is not worth it. We can do better than that.

So we put together this list of super easy, DIY Halloween decor ideas. Most of these decorations can be made with stuff you have in your home right now! Skip the expensive trips to the party store and spend some time making your own decorations. Best of all, these decorations are much better than the ones you can buy in the store.

So when preparing for Halloween this year, try out some of these decorations. Just make sure to have plenty of candy on hand! These decorations are sure to attract more trick-or-treaters than usual!
