13. Frankenstein Door
I’m not suggesting that you paint your door green, but this Frankenstein door is too cool! The project itself will cost you under a buck, and for the ease and low cost, it sure does create a big impact! Check out how it was done here.
14. Trash Bag Spider Webs
You don’t even have to bother leaving the house for this super cute and thrifty Halloween craft. A few black trash bags and scissors will do the trick! They look really cool hanging in front of the window, and they create a nice silhouette in the window at night. Check out the instructions over at Fast Forward Fun (one of my other blogs). 🙂
I like this project so much I made a little video tutorial:
15. Mice Silhouettes
Place these little critters running along your baseboards, adorning your staircase, and running up the walls! Just black paper and double sided tape! It’s super easy with this free template from Martha Stewart.
16. Halloween Window Decor
If you want something that really stands out this Halloween, window silhouettes are easy and really impressive! You can purchase them at party stores or make your own cut-outs on black paper or cardboard. There is also a large selection to choose from on Amazon. I purchased a few of these a couple of years ago, and after it’s attached to the window with a bit of tape, that’s all you have to do is turn your lights on! I’m going to do some experimenting on the windows by my front door this year with black birds and tree branches.
17. Movable Mummies
These creepy yet adorable little mummies are made with just 2 simple materials! They’re so easy to make, even the kids will have fun putting them together. You can assemble them as little or as big as you would like, and then add them to your Halloween decor. They’re fun to play with too! Check out the full instructions over at Fabbri Designs!

It’s doesn’t get much cheaper than this! Head on over to the Dollar Store and pick up a few plastic pumpkin pails, do a little bit of creative cutting, and voila! You’ve got yourself an easy Halloween decoration for your front porch. Head on over to Instructables to see the full instructions.
19. DIY Eyeball String Lights

20. Illuminated Ghosts
Light up your porch with these easy DIY illuminated ghosts! Unfortunately, the source for this (craftymisadventures.com) has let their domain expire, but the instructions seem self explanatory. Simply wrap string lights around a tomato cage, and top it with something round such as a styrofoam ball, cover it with a sheet (or any thin white material), glue on felt eye cut-outs, and voila!
