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.

2. A Cobweb Covered Mantle 

Drape a few sheets of fake cobweb over your mantle decorations. Then, throw in a couple of fake spiders, black lanterns and handipt taper candles for a finishing touch to your spooky yet classy mantlepiece.

3. Mini Pumpkin Tealights

Visit your local pumpkin patch to collect a colorful variety of mini pumpkins. Carve a hole into the top of the gourd, scoop out the guts, pop in an unscented tealight and let your pumpkin shine! 

*To eliminate the mess of pumpkin carving, try drawing a goofy grin on your jack-o'-lantern with a permanent marker. 

4. Halloween Table Masterpiece

Add a bit of moody elegance to your dining room table with a mix of orange and black taper and pillar candles. Bring the tablescape together with a sprinkle of colorful foliage and a few pumpkins for some rustic charm. 

5. Deliciously Spooky Scented Candles
