Last Minute Halloween Decor

Halloween is upon us my friends! I love Halloween, although I didn’t always. Mainly because I grew up not celebrating the holiday up until I started going to college. Yes, you guessed it, I was one of those college girls wearing a hoochie Halloween costume. Haha. Hey, it was fun and the thing to do! It’s still the thing to do, but I am passed the hoochie costumes. I rather spend time creating my own costume or painting my face into something cool these days.

Anyways, enough blabbering. Below are a few Halloween decor items that my niece and I created at the very last minute for this Halloween. All things are very simple to make. But, for some pieces you may wanna stop by your nearest craft store or dollar store.

Candle Cauldron:
Need:
Small mason jar
Black Paint
Old candle (or candle wax)
Candle wick
Wire
Scent for candle (optional)
Dried small flowers (optional)

Steps:
1. Measure a ring around cauldron neck with wire. Create a handle with wire and attach it to ring around cauldron neck. You may wanna use tweezers to twist both pieces together.
2. paint cauldron, wire too if you want.
3. Melt candle wax in a double boiler (I used to old pots). Mix in scent.
4. Pour in melted candle wax into “cauldron”. Sprinkle in dried flowers.

Jello Brain
Need
1. Jello Mix: I used a cream coconut flavor mixed with milk to resemble brain flesh and a strawberry jello mix to resemble the “bloody” part of brain.
2. Brain Mold (I got mine at Dollar Tree for $1)

Steps
1.Follow steps for jello on jello box.
2. Place jello on mold according to how you’d like the colors to appear once the jello hardens. I first did a layer of cream coconut, allowed jello to stiffen, then added red jello.


Creepy Angel
Need
1. 
Ceramic angel (from dollar store)
2. Old plastic artificial grape, I had one laying around from old decor.
3. Paint
4. Paint brushes
Steps
1. paint any creepy eyes on angel
2. Paint eyeball on grape. You don’t need to know how to draw for this. Just google eye ball clip art and go from there.

Floating candles
Need
1. Toilet paper and napkin carton roll tubes. (don’t throw them, save a couple). I used different sizes of them to add a hint of variety in candles. Not all candles are same size, specially if they’ve been burning for a while.
2. Flameless tea lights (from dollar store)
3. Clear string
4. White paint
5. Hot glue gun (optional)

Steps
1. Paint cartons to what ever color your candles will be. I chose white.
2. Add hot glue to top rim of tube. Add hot glue in a way  that resembles melted wax dripping down.
3. Punch two small holes on top rim, each on opposite sides.
4. Slide clear string through holes. Leave enough string to hang.
5. Place flameless candle on stop of tube, it should sit comfortably on the string.
6. Hang your candle!

If you have any more questions on these DIY’s do leave your comments down below. Each one of these pieces were so fun to do. What made them even more special was doing all of them with my sweet niece. Do you have any fun and spooky DIY ideas you’re doing for Halloween this year? I’d love to hear about them!

Stay spooky,
