Halloween Decor DIY

Halloween Decor DIY: 
Have any cool Halloween DIY ideas to share? Leave a comment! I'll be sending out some FREE Printables!

1. Halloween Paper Bats: Using 4-6 sheets of construction paper, good scissors, printable bat template (download below), and scotch tape.  Create a "path" for the bats to travel along rather than hanging them randomly.

2. Black and White Halloween decor: Group some black spray-painted frames and mirrors and hang. Use a black tray or platter to display mini white pumpkins.  Use white candles on a chic black candleabra.  Spiderwebs over everything to give the extra creepy effect!

3. Creepy Halloween Party Food:  Replace your Jello Brain Mold this year with instant Flan (find it near the jello boxes).  It already has that creamy look, but by adding a few drops of red food color to the caramel sauce, it looks quite bloody!  Take it to the next level by displaying it with a large knife or cleaver.  For the Bread Bones, get a can of french bread dough (e.g. Pillsbury) and divide into pieces with a sharp knife. Roll into finger sized pieces, and cut each end about 1".  Round out the ends and bake in about half the suggested time.  For a "dirty bones" look, sprinkle black sesame seeds on before baking.  Serve with a guacamole!

4.  Witch's Bottles of Potions - Use old wine bottles, beer bottles, and jars.  Soak in hot water to remove labels.  Use some twine and a little Elmer's Glue to wrap around neck of bottles. Soak a green or yellow highlighter in water for a few hours to overnight, pour into the jars and turn on a black light.

5. Black Light Decor - Get black light paint from a craft store like Michael's, Use a neon posterboard, draw a scene with sharpie, and paint areas with black light paint.  Use an old beat up frame and splatter some of the black light paint on the frame for a 3-dimensional look.

6. "Black & Cheese" - More party food! You can use homemade or out of the box mac & cheese - creep it up by adding a few drops of black food coloring to the milk and cheese at the end.  Looks disgusting, but tastes delicious!
"Black & Cheese" - My version of Haunted Mac & Cheese - just add black food coloring!
