Serve your treats in a skull! Paint an egg-shaped box white and add elements of a scary skull in black paint, marker, or crepe paper for texture. When the kids at your door threaten "trick or treat"—you can let them have both!

10 DIYs for a Frightfully Fun Halloween
Skullified Treat Boxes
Bring on the Bats
Let a ﬂurry of bats be your welcoming committee. Cut these creepy creatures out of black card stock and tape them to the wall or house. You might want to laminate them or sandwich them in contact paper if they’ll be living outdoors. They’re sure to cause a ﬂap with your friends and neighbors.
Creep out the critters visiting your yard with custom-made tombstones made from foam insulation board. You need little more than a jigsaw, paint, and your imagination to transform an 8' x 4' sheet of foam into a full-on family graveyard. RIP, trick-or-treaters!
Cover your table with an army of spiders! Stencil as many as you can stand on a drop cloth or other table covering. It’s enough to put anyone off their food.
Creepy Candy Bowl
Place a skeletal hand attached to a foam block into your candy bowl before you ﬁll it. You’ll make the ghouls think twice before grabbing a ﬁstful. Spooky was never simpler.
Light up the night with DIY lanterns that are easy enough for everyone in the family to make. Just Mod Podge some tissue paper to a glass jar, glue on some funky face shapes, and add a tea-light candle, and you have instant Halloween atmosphere.
Greet your guests, indoors or out, with a ghostly garland. A strand of white lantern lights, some white cotton fabric, string, and a black marker are all you need. Your ghosts will be spooky (or maybe just adorable) both day and night.
