Halloween is on its way, and with that comes decorating! You may be the person who loves halloween and wants to be have the creepiest decorations possible, or you may be someone who loves to decorate for the seasons, but halloween is not one you particularly like. Whether you are decorating for a "kid-friendly" look, or want to go really creepy, we have some decorating ideas for you! Here are 3 areas you can start decorating for the season: Front door, lights, and walls! 

Front Door

Kid Friendly

Jack-o-lanterns are the way to go here! There are endless possibilities here. Whether your children like a crooked smile, a gruesome character, or a pattern to show some great candle light, they can make their pumpkin their own. Carving does require some basic tips and tricks that you may want to pay attention to. Check out this video to help you out!

Fall Themed

Some people may not want to decorate for halloween itself, but love the idea of decorating for fall. The upside here is not having to swap out decorations until the holidays! Check out this great and simple DIY video where you can see how to make a Fall wreath without breaking the bank.


Looking for an extra creepy way to decorate your place? Jack-o-Lantern to the rescue again! Here, we see how the pro's do-it. Watch Ray Villafane show you the basics on how to make your Pumpkin as scary as you want it to be with one simple approach.


Kid Friendly

Kids love crafts and what better way to decorate the house than a homemade craft with simple household items! Check out this video for a simple milk jug decoration that will light up your space and will be fun to make!

Fall Themed

Another DIY, but this time fall inspired! There's nothing more beautiful than the colours of fall leaves and why not keep the colours until winter comes? Check out this video of a DIY autumn leaf lantern.


This DIY is for those of you who want spooky decorations for your house. This DIY will give you a creepy vibe with some cool lights. Check out the video to do it yourself!

On The Walls

Kid Friendly

Here's a craft that your kids will enjoy. They can then take part in the decorating! With just a simple picture frame and some string, this craft is easy and fun!  

Autumn Themed

This wall decor is beautiful and will blow your guests away when you tell them that it was handmade!!! With a short trip to the dollar store and Michaels, you will have your house decorated for Autumn in no time!


Creep your guests out with some fake spiderwebs around your house! The creepy look will be sure to send some shivers down backs of people trick-or-treating. Try shining some lights on them at night for an extra creepy look.
