Last Minute DIY Halloween Decorations

Halloween is right around the corner. You might have even scheduled your festivities for this weekend. Some people get prepared for the spooky holiday months in advance with carefully curated creepy decorations, party plans, and candy packaging ideas. 

But if you’re like me, then Halloween may have snuck up and scared (I mean startled) you. Now that it is so close to pouncing on us, what are we to do? Curl up in a ball? Close our eyes and hope we’re dreaming? Hide under the covers for protection?


We must use our wit, scissors, glue, and dollar store finds to create some terrifyingly easy last minute Halloween decorations guaranteed to entice some wandering trick-or-treaters to your front door. 

I have collected a few of my favorite DIY Haloween projects that you can complete with little spare time and money required. Check them out below. And feel free to comment and share your own.
