For a child, there is nothing worse than trick-or-treating at a house without Halloween decorations. Even a few fake cobwebs draped across the bushes in the front yard or a couple of carved pumpkins lining the steps to the front door is better than nothing. With the pending onslaught of costume-clad children this Halloween, it's time to allow your inner craftiness run free and your creativity come to life.
Here are a few DIY Halloween decoration ideas that are sure to *spook* up your house in no time:
1. Dress Up Empty Jars
For a simple DIY project, take one recycled Colonial Candle 8oz oval jar and spray paint the outside orange. Using black craft paper, cut out two eyes and a mouth for a super cute and easy to do Jack-o'-lantern.
