Halloween decoration

Trick or treat? Trick or treat? If you not only like to celebrate Halloween but even organize a Halloween party for your friends, you should also think about an atmospheric Halloween decoration. We’ll show you twelve decorating ideas that you can easily recreate.

1. The classic Halloween decoration: carve a pumpkin face

What shouldn’t be missing on Halloween under any circumstances? Right, a scary pumpkin face. So that your party gets the right flair, you should provide your party location with at least one pumpkin. The pumpkin face in front of your front door puts your guests in the right mood before they enter.

You need:

  • a pumpkin
  • a spoon to hollow out
  • a pencil
  • a sharp knife (recommended: a pocket knife)
  • possibly nail polish remover

That’s how it’s done:

  1. First of all, paint the face on the pumpkin as you want to carve it out later. If you do not use a pencil (for example, a ballpoint pen or a fine liner) and paint yourself, you can use nail polish remover to remove the errors.
  2. In the next step, cut off the lid of the pumpkin so that you can use the spoon to remove the pulp from inside the pumpkin. Remove as much flesh as possible. The more gone, the longer you can use the hollowed-out pumpkin as a decorative item before it starts to mold. You can use the pulp for a delicious sweet pumpkin bake, for example. The kernels in the flesh taste delicious when you first salt them and then roast them in the oven.
  3. Finally, you have to cut out the contours of the pumpkin face so that you only have to express the individual parts of the face from the inside. Of course, your pumpkin face looks particularly impressive in the dark with an illuminated tea light in itAn exotic alternative to the traditional pumpkin face is the pineapple face. It works just like the pumpkin face, only with a pineapple.

2. Pumpkin air balloon lantern

If you want to reuse your pumpkin face not just once, but every year, you can use paper mache and a balloon to make an artificial pumpkin lantern.

You need:

  • a balloon (orange)
  • Napkins (orange)
  • Newsprint
  • paste
  • a brush
  • a black marker
  • a cutter knife

Halloween decoration

That’s how it’s done:

  1. In the first step, you tear the towels and the newspaper into pieces. Then you inflate the balloon, depending on how big your “pumpkin” should be later. Then you spread the paste on the aircraft and then stick it with a layer of a napkin, then a layer of newspaper and then another layer of the towel. The whole must then dry for about 24 hours.
  2. When everything has dried well, use the marker to paint the pumpkin face on the orange balloon. With the help of a cutter knife, you also cut off the lid of the “pumpkin.” So it is possible to place a tealight in the balloon pumpkin.

3. Ghost lights

For even more light effects, you can reuse old jam jars that you would otherwise have had to bring to the waste glass container. With a few more utensils, your party will hit the ghost hour at midnight.

You need:

  • a jam jar
  • Gauze bandages
  • Scotch tape
  • Moving eyes (there is in the 1-euro shop )
  • Liquid glue

Halloween decoration

That’s how it’s done:

  1. In the beginning, you wrap enough gauze bandages around the jam jar so that no pot is visible. Fasten the gauze bandages with scotch tape. Use liquid glue to stick the loose eyes to the glass.
  2. Here, too, a tealight in the ghost glass provides scary light.

4. Foliage ghosts

All sorts of leaves lie on the ground in autumn. The colorful leaves of maple trees you can turn super easy in floating ghosts.

You need:

  • fallen maple leaves
  • opaque white color
  • a black marker
  • a brush
  • a punch
  • a cord

Halloween decoration

That’s how it’s done:

  1. If the leaves still have a stem, remove them first. Then paint them with opaque white paint. Decorate the white leaves with a ghost face using the marker. Thanks to the jagged edges of the maple leaf, it now looks like a ghost floating in the air.
  2. Finished several such leaves ghosts on. Punch a hole in the upper corner so that you can connect the ghosts with a string to create a creepy garland.

4. Banana ghosts: Halloween decoration for eating

At your Halloween party, the buffet is not just there to satisfy your guests’ hunger. You can also create a scary atmosphere in the kitchen. And without much effort.

You need:

  • Bananas
  • Coffee beans
  • Chocolate drops

Halloween decoration

That’s how it’s done:

  1. You cut the bananas in half. For the banana ghosts, you only need the top half. At the top of the banana half, place a coffee bean as a mouth and two chocolate drops as eyes. The banana spirits are done.
  2. It is best to present several banana spirits together on a plate so that they look like a whole host of ghosts even if it is admittedly a very cute group of ghosts.

5. Hot fingers

You need:

  • Hot dog bun
  • Hot dog sausages
  • Ketchup

Halloween decoration

That’s how it’s done:

  1. First of all, you proceed as if you were preparing normal hot dogs. Heat the sausages in boiling water for about five minutes. The hot dog rolls also taste better when they are warm.
  2. Before you put the sausages in the buns, work them with the knife and cut “skin folds” and “fingernails” into them. With a few splashes of ketchup, the delicate fingers in the hot dog look even more real. Good Appetite!

6th – 8th Last minute Halloween decorating ideas

If you have failed to take care of Halloween decorations in time and now have to do something with what you have at home, you do not need to despair. Even with very little, you can create a lot of creeps.

Bloody napkins

You need:

  • Fake blood
  • white napkins

That’s how it’s done:

  1. Drizzle some fake blood on the palm of your hand. Fold the napkins apart and spread handprints on them with your bloody palm. Then fold the napkins as you want to present them later. Your guests will surely shiver when they use the bloody napkins.
  2. Of course, this idea is not limited to napkins. The same terrifying effect is achieved on sheets, tablecloths, or towels.

Human hands

You need:

  • a rubber glove
  • light juice (apple juice is best)

That’s how it’s done:

  1. Fill a rubber glove full of apple juice (or other light juice).
  2. Then put it in the freezer until the liquid in the glove has frozen to ice.
  3. Now drape the hard-frozen glove in a punch bowl or in a bowl of jelly. At first glance, the ice hands are confusingly similar to a human hand.

Chamber of Secrets

You need:

  • a mirror
  • a lipstick

That’s how it’s done:

  1. Attention Harry Potter fans! With just one lipstick, you can open the Chamber of Secrets at your Halloween party! You tell your guests directly. Just write on a mirror with lipstick ” The Chamber of Secrets has been opened. Enemies of the heir beware!” – just like in the second part of the Harry Potter film series
