Halloween is nearly upon us again so it’s time to start thinking about creeping out our décor to create a fiendishly horrible home. If you’ve got kids and you’re throwing a party then the costs can soon add up. Once you’ve made or bought costumes, party food, candy and decorations – Halloween can leave a serious hole in your wallet. Here are some great, simple ideas for devilish decorations you can make yourself for a fraction of the cost and can whipped up in next to no time for last-minute party preparations:


Vampire Napkin Rings

If you’re looking for ways to make your table terrifying then these vampire teeth will certainly set the tone. Take some white cloth napkins or even paper ones and dot them with fake blood or anything red that you have around the house like nail varnish or red wine. Buy some very cheap fake vampire teeth, pass a twist tie through them and fix the tie around the middle of your napkin. Now you have the makings of seriously creepy party food table.

Boo Bottle Lanterns

This look fantastic and are so cheap and easy to make. Clean up some old gallon milk bottles, spray paint them white if you need to and draw spooky-looking faces on them with black marker. All you need to do then is pop some small white fairy lights inside the plastic jugs and place out front on your porch or front door for attracting all those trick or treaters! They look welcoming and fun but you can make their faces as scary as you like.
