Skip the holiday superstores: Homemade Halloween decorations are always more fun to make yourself. Prepare your home and yard for Halloween with these homemade Halloween decorations.
The easiest way to decorate your home for Halloween is to start with a theme. Begin with one room and focus on decorating one space at a time. This makes the process less stressful. Every year you can add a new room to the mix, each with its own theme. Can't decide on a theme? Some spooky ideas for decor include ghastly ghosts, wicked witches, creepy-crawly spiders, haunted cemeteries, and pretty pumpkins.

A haunted yard display is a creepy welcome for trick-or-treaters, and you can save money by making your own decorations. Carve pumpkins in to jack-o'-lanterns with scary faces, write warning messages that line the sidewalk, or create a bewitching display on the front porch with a broom, black shoes, and a witch's hat. Make a simple wreath for the front door using twigs and leaves from the yard and a painted sign warning visitors to "Beware."

This Halloween, give a hoot about your pumpkin decorations. Make this so easy Owl Pumpkin out of sunflower seeds as a big eyed beauty that can perch in your displays. To get started, use some apple core to cut small circles for the owl's eyes, a knife works for this technique too. Free hand cut a triangle for his nose. To secure the Owl's appendages, cut small slits of the pumpkin for each ear and each foot. Heat up a hot glue gun and get crafting. Hot glue sunflower seeds in a circle around his eyes. Do as many layers of sunflower seeds as you'd like. The more seeds the bigger his keepers. Next, prep the Owl's ears. Hot glue 6 seeds to the end of the craft stick, repeat to make a second ear. Use the same method and 7 seeds to make feet. Tuck the craft sticks into the slits you cut earlier. Your pumpkin decorating is now complete. Send this little guy soaring on your porch display this Halloween.
