20 Kid-Friendly DIY Halloween Decorations
Easy DIY Halloween Decorations (That Aren’t Super Scary)
Do you have your Halloween decor out yet? My whole family thinks Halloween decor is so much fun and it is also exciting because it is like the kick-off to the holiday season! Let the family celebrations, decorating, yummy food, and shopping begin! Right?
We like to try to add one new Halloween decoration item to our collection each year. It can be store-bought or homemade. Whatever works!
If I go the DIY route, I can usually manage to get more than just one new item if I really want to. 😉 And if you get the whole family involved in making them or picking out the stuff, they will become the most favorite and cherished decorations and crafts of all.
To help you make some of your amazing DIY Halloween decorations, I’ve gathered all our favorite kid-friendly Halloween crafts into this post to get you inspired!
DIY Indoor Halloween Decorations
These inexpensive frames turned out so cute! Love the decorative paper and the printable. Plus, this is a great way to use up some old frames!
This is another really easy and cute DIY decoration! You can use nearly any frame you have around, or get one at a thrift store, and paint it whatever color you want.
Make the candles in your home just a little bit more creepy by putting eyes on them! I love how fun this idea is, and it’s pretty inexpensive too. It just might take a while to get an entire candle holder covered in eyes.
How cute is this banner on the mantle? Totally works hanging with a mirror or just on the wall over a table or couch. The font is free, then you just need paper, mod podge, glitter, glue gun, and yarn. Customize the colors and letters to whatever you prefer!
Lately, I have had a kid asking me every day how many days are left until Halloween! You can use this simple DIY countdown chalkboard for any upcoming event or holiday.
This would be such a fun craft to do with the kids and these tissue paper pumpkins look beautiful once they’re finished!
This creative and crafty DIY pumpkin might end up being FREE for you to make if you already have the six simple and cheap supplies! Great for Halloween and Fall, in general.
These pumpkins are great because you can keep them around through Halloween and into Thanksgiving! They’re super customizable too. You could probably use these as outdoor decorations too but I like to keep mine inside so they don’t get wrecked.
This is a great craft for kids and it’s super cheap to make. You could even make multiple to decorate inside and outside! If you enjoy these sort of crafts, check out our other toilet roll crafts too!
10. Boo Board
All you need for this simple and kid-friendly craft is a wooden board, glue gun, paint, wooden letters, and a felt spider. This colorful piece of decor would look great hanging on a wall!
Kid-Friendly DIY Halloween Decorations for Outside
This is a super easy and fast decoration idea! Make glowing ghosts or eyeballs and put them inside near windows or hang them on trees outside. This is another one of those decorations that work great indoors or outdoors! And I guarantee you the kids will love this one!
Why buy expensive spider web decorations when you can just make your own out of a couple of trash bags? Add some dollar store spiders to these and you’ve got a creepy decoration for outside!
13. Owl Pumpkins
These owl pumpkins are a cute alternative way to decorate with pumpkins! Especially for all of the owl-lovers out there. This is another decoration idea that you can use inside or outside!
14. Yard Monsters
This is such a cute kid-friendly Halloween decor idea. Plus, they’re super inexpensive to make! I don’t know about you, but I kind of want to turn all the trees and bushes around my house into yard monsters now…
Another cute and cheap family-friendly decor project! This would look awesome outside on my black front door!
16. Lawn Ghosts
These lawn ghosts are super easy and cheap to make, and they look really awesome too. Such a classic Halloween decoration!
Here’s yet another Halloween craft that would look great outside or indoors! These fun wooden pumpkin decorations could be for your mantle, porch, or entry table. Snazz them up with black painted polka-dots, chevron, decorative paper, or leave them simple and cute.
For a subtle and kid-friendly decoration, this spider web doormat idea is perfect. It will go great with the other outdoor DIY Halloween decorations on this list too!
This is a very cute (and slightly spooky – look at that spider!) Halloween wreath for the front door or a mantle! Way cheaper to make yourself than buying a pre-made one!
Add a little bit of mystery and spookiness to your porch with these floating witch hats! These are quite easy to make as you can find the hats pre-made, and then you just have to customize them however you like! You could put these indoors as well if you like.
Bonus: Halloween Ghost Blow Pops
This is a fun one for the trick or treaters! Suckers disguised as ghosts! I love how creative and just downright genius this is. You could even draw faces on them with a Sharpie if you want to take it a step further.
Happy Halloween Decorating!
