Wooden Halloween Signs

Not wanting to be left out of the Halloween decorating fun in her neighborhood, Lorraine from South Meets Southwest whipped up a few spooky signs to welcome trick-or-treaters to her house. Lorraine saved money by using wood from Home Depot’s scrap pile and paint she already had, making the grand total for all three signs $1.50! Lorraine says, “We might be the last house on our block to decorate for Halloween, but I am just glad I finished these signs before the first trick-or-treater arrived!”

Magnetic Chandelier Ornaments

If you would like to give your chandelier a quick upgrade, you’ve got to check out these adorable dangling magnets made by Cheryl at From New House to Home! Cheryl used magnetic jewelry clips so her ornaments just stick right onto the chandelier. She created both a crystal set and one with cheery pumpkins for Halloween. How fun to change these out for the holidays and add some pizzazz in an unexpected place!

Painted Wood Halloween Signs

Less than $20 for a wooden Halloween sign from Pottery Barn Kids may not seem so bad. However, if you consider buying two or three signs to display together, the dollars start adding up. And if you consider that you could make the signs for free like Amie from Pinkapotamus, well, that seems like a no-brainer! All Amie needed was some scrap pallet wood from her stash and paint to deck out her porch with a trio of festive signs.

Antiqued Skull Vase

Halloween Skull Vase

Pottery Barn’s ceramic skull vases have gotten a lot of love this Halloween! Not only are they sold out online, but a plethora of DIYers have replicated the look with various techniques and materials. Nikki from 13 Black Cats Designs molded a skull face from clay and then attached it onto a craft store vase. She finished it up with some spray paint and acrylic paint for a cool aged stone look.

Skull Candle Holders

This year Pottery Barn has some fabulous skull votive holders in their Halloween décor line. Problem is the price tag…they’re $9.50 each! Fortunately, Monica of Monica Wants It has a DIY version that is super easy and inexpensive. Plus, Monica’s votives go beyond the basic black with pretty damask and Moroccan patterns. Who says skulls can’t be stylish {wink}?

Skull Vases

Danielle from My EnRoute Life didn’t let the fact that Pottery Barn’s ceramic skull vases are no longer available ruin her Halloween fun. No siree… not when she could make two decorative vases for only $13. You may be able to work that price down too if you’ve got some vases on hand you don’t mind refabbing.  The creepy faces really steal the show in Danielle’s Halloween vignette!

Ahna from Easier Than I Thought was inspired to make her chandelier shades more festive for Halloween by covering them with paper jack-o-lanterns. Her daughter loves seeing the friendly, glowing faces! Ahna suggests getting your kids in on the action of designing cats, witches, or jack-o-lanterns with different expressions.

Treat-or-Treat Sign

Lorraine from South Meets Southwest created this Halloween sign as a craft prize for Bunco night with the girls. (And let me say that I love the idea of everyone bringing a craft to exchange as a prize!) She used a ballpoint pen to leave the imprint for her text and then painted it in. Lorraine says, “I went home with a very cute craft from the party, but I was still a little sad to have to part with my Halloween sign.” Looks like another sign’s in the making!
