Kid Friendly Halloween Decor
Halloween is easily one of the best celebrations there is. I mean, there’s great costumes, amazing decorations and yep – tons of candy. There are also a lot of opportunities for the DIYers out there to get their craft on – and some people go ALL OUT. Everything is home or handmade, from the costumes to the treat! And some people, not so much. Either way is fine with us! A good way to meet in the middle is to DIY your decorations, and if this is your year to try it, you’re in luck!
Here are some of the funnest, coolest, and easiest DIY Halloween Decorations for the whole family to partake in. Some will need adult or older kid supervision, but they will all be fun. And we’ve chosen decorations that are heavy on the fun, light on the creepy.
These Balloon Yarn Pumpkins by One Little Project are just adorable.
These are maybe as creepy as we get in this list, and what an impact these Flying Paper Bats by Craft Passion will have on your banister or door!
I think these Skull Luminaries by Crafts by Amanda are actually kinda cute!
These may be a bit trickier, but so worth it! Spooky Crystal Ball Candlesticks by Flamingo Toes will look amazing on any table!
Seriously, how brilliant are these Floating Witch Hat Luminaries by the Polka Dot Chair? Aren’t you kicking yourself for not thinking of it yourself?
This brought on a slight eureka moment. Balloon Jack-O-Lanterns by Hip 2 Save have got to be the cheapest, easiest, and perhaps smartest way to totally Halloween a room. Yes, Halloween is now a verb.
I have never seen paper look so beautiful. Lia Griffith does amazing things with paper, and these Paper Lanterns don’t disappoint.
I love this super fun Giant Spider Web by Rhythms of Play!
And to go with it, these Giant Spiders by Mom Endeavors.
I personally adore the wine glass in these Quick and Easy Table Decorations by Blue Bear Wood.
Super festive Tissue Paper Lanterns by Red Ted Art are a must for this year as well.
This Black Cat Paper Craft by Easy Peasy and Fun is a great one for the kids, and would make great wall decorations.
Another fun project for the kids are Paper Plate Spiders by Glue Sticks and Gum Drops. Hang them from doorways!
These Paper Ghost Garlands by Skip to My Lou are totally on the doable side, and if you’re feeling a little extra creative, you may want to branch out and experiment with other shapes too!
Get ready for some good old fashioned messy fun with these Stained Glass Pumpkins by I Can Teach My Child. The results are stunning, and very festive!
And of course, these Halloween Stamp Paintings by Powerful Mothering will make great additions to any class parties, or friendly get togethers!
Happy Halloween!… Ooops – before I forget, don’t miss these super easy and fast DYI Halloween costumes – made out of cardboard boxes! (TOTAL MOM-WIN!)
While I think of it, you HAVE to see my all time FAVORITE not-spooky Halloween peg dolls. Seriously, these little critters make me so happy!
