Sit down with your family and prepare a spooky scene for your garden or home. You can conjure up some haunted woodland to scare trick-or-treaters. This is a fun way to spend an afternoon together and enjoy, and all ages can get involved.

Below are 15 Spooktacular Halloween Decors in Dallas

Spider’s Nest Luminaires

Light the way to your front door with glowing spider nests. To make these, wrap large and small mason jars with white cheesecloth or medical gauze, sealing the fabric’s tips with hot glue. Hot-glue a couple of plastic spiders to the gauze, then fill each jar with a flameless candle.

Foam Tombstones

Make tombstones out of foam to create an eerie graveyard in yout front yard. You can add hilarious sayings or be deathly serious with classic designs, either way, you can give the foam cutouts an ancient look and feel.

Paint Zombie Stones

Collect several smooth stones from the yard and have your children paint funny and scary faces on them. Place them throughout the yard or in a bowl near the door to make it look like you have a bowl filled with creepy zombie heads.

Trash Bag Spider Webs

A little creative folding and cutting can transform an item you already have on hand into weatherproof adornments that you can reuse every year. Turn your black outdoor trash bags into large spider webs. Make a few and hang them on your front porch; you can add a string of lights to them or small plastic spiders.

Spooky Tattered Curtains

Dotted Swiss fabric turns eerie when modified into a torn and tattered drape. You can serve scary lychee eyeball punch in a classic battery glass and spread silhouettes of rats, made from black craft paper, all over the display.

Ghostly Draperies

Add a spooky touch to your front porch this Halloween with billowing, ragged draperies to your front porch; they are sure to add a haunted-house vibe. You can make old sheets or inexpensive fabric look timeworn by dipping them in a tea bath.

Googly-Eye Wreath

Try to make this fun wreath for your front door to keep a watchful eye on trick-or-treaters, ghosties, and all sorts of things else that go bump in the night. You’ll need a plain wreath, a bag of googly eyes, and a hot glue gun. If you want you can use different size eyes and add colorful ribbon to hang it on your door.

Tropical Jack-o’ Lanterns

Give Halloween a tropical twist and put aside the pumpkins! This new Halloween craze will take you on a tropical escape. Let’s try this Halloween decor trend this year by using pineapples to create jack-o’-lanterns.

Create a Candy Wreath

You’ll need the entire family for this sweet DIY craft; kids can curate the candy choices, and adults can handle the glue gun. Cover a wreath form with goodies, then finish it off with a multi-colored ribbon. You can also try using clothespins to hold the candy so party goers can easily take one for a quick treat.

Wine Bottle Candle Holders

An eerie sparkle is vital at any Halloween party, and candles add just that. Paint used wine bottles with matte-black spray paint; insert a taper candle in each bottle opening once dried. Allow the candles to drip along the sides to give it that spooky effect.

Mask Wreath

Spook your attendees with this fun wreath made of old-style masks. It’s effortless to make!

Horror Novel Door

Just before scary Halloween movies were created, people were getting shivers from scary novels. So why not use these spooky classics right onto your Halloween decoration? To make the book door, cut long, thin rectangular pieces of varying colored kraft paper. Draw titles of books on the paper—outline characters with gold paint pens. Add outline with gold acrylic paint. Affix to door with double-sided tape. Add a big bushel container and buffalo-check doormat.

Broomstick Door Decoration

Welcome your fellow witches with this coven-inspired broomstick door idea. It’s really quick and easy to showcase if you’re looking for a last-minute Halloween design.

Creepy Spiderweb Wall

Bring layers of spookiness to a Halloween buffet with sticky-looking spider webs and black painted twigs. Stretch faux spider web material all over the buffet wall structure, wrapping it around and through twigs that have been painted black.

Pumpkin Candy Dispenser

We love it when the decor is both seasonal and useful. So put your pumpkin to good use by transforming it into a one-of-a-kind candy dispenser. To make this DIY craft, trace the bottom of a glass bowl or storage compartment onto the front of a medium pumpkin. Cut out around tracing, then scoop out the pulp seeds. Insert a bowl, making the hole slightly bigger if needed. Put a piece of thick rope around the edge of the bowl with hot glue. Fill the bowl with lots of candies.
