Boo Bottles

Raid your recycling bin to make these glass ghosts in four easy steps: First, remove labels and caps from bottles (we used Perrier ones here). Spray-paint them white, then draw faces on with black marker. To finish this cheap Halloween decoration, throw in colorful straws for cute centerpieces. Cheap Halloween decorations aren’t the only thing you can DIY—you can whip up a homemade Halloween costume, too! Check out the cutest homemade costumes for kids and our favorite DIY disguises for adults.

Cups look creepy when sitting on these spindly saucers. To make these DIY Halloween decorations, hook five bobby pins onto a 3/8-inch flat metal washer. Then, wrap twine around and thread through each bobby pin. Spray-paint everything white for that ghoulish look, and scatter small toy spiders around the table. Making cheap Halloween decorations with the family is one of our favorite ways to have some fall fun without breaking the bank.

The cute woodland world gets a spooky twist from Today’s Creative Blog. After you search the backyard for twigs, moss, and rocks, scour the house for small Halloween-themed decorations like skulls and scary birds for these cheap Halloween decorations. Then, build your scene on an upside-down lid of a Mason jar. When your miniature landscape looks complete, screw the jar onto the lid and place in the window or next to your front door in lieu of a pumpkin.
