Chic, DIY Halloween Decor

It’s another Halloween Post! {Because you can never have enough Halloween posts!} 😉

If you missed it, last week Alysha shared some adorable Halloween party food ideas and AmberLee shared a cute and delicious Halloween centerpiece with FREE printables! Don’t miss them!

Today, we’ve got a few do-it-yourself Halloween Decor ideas!

This year I made a couple Halloween texture balls (surprise, surprise, I know.} We are in small, temporary housing, so this was a good, small project I could do quickly to spice up the place.

DIY Halloween Textural Decor Balls

What You Need:

A couple styrophome balls

A hot glue gun or  pins

A textural, dense, garland

Start with a large amount of hot glue and press the end of the garland into it (with scissors or something, no burned fingers here!) Let it sit enough to melt into the styrophome and harden.

Start wrapping the garland around the started point, covering the ball, and gluing it as you go!

Finish with another generous amount of glue, snip the garland, and begin decorating! {Decorating tip: decorate in odd numbers, it’s more pleasing to the eye. Therefore I made 3 of these! Took me only about 30 minutes and 1 garland.}

We have gathered quite a few other DIY Halloween decor ideas on Pinterest! Here are just a couple…

Don’t you love how chic it is? I’m all about the chic/cutesy Halloween decor, not the gory, creepy stuff. Call me a scaredy cat, but I don’t even like the dark in my own house. 😉

Sparkly skulls? I can handle that! Especially with gold, spider ribbons!
