Giving gifts and cards is a norm for Valentine’s Day. This year, instead of having to buy some cards to give to your valentine, why not make them on your own. This way, Valentine’s cards will have an added value. They will have a personal meaning to both you the giver and the person to whom the card will be given to, th receiver. The awesome part about these DIYs is that they are not costly to make, and are also not difficult to make. Here are 12 great DIYs for you to try out.
You only have to spray some white paints on the gourds. Then paint black after the white paint has dried, draw different facial expressions and let them dry before you cover them with the cheesecloth to give the final ghostly look.
These are flowing ghouls from the roof or tree depending on where you want to hang them, indoors or outdoors. You definitely need hanging hooks, cheesecloth, Styrofoam balls and black marker. If you will choose to hang them in your yard, that will be perfect because there will be an additional effect to it which is the wind making the ghosts dance.
Halloween Ghost Host
What a breathtaking welcome greetings you can offer your guest? This is perfect. Materials needed are chicken wire, cheesecloth, spray adhesive, fake skeleton and some hardware.
Halloween Window Silhouttes
Add a little flame on your window and give it a highlight of the day. Draw your images on a cardboard that you would want to display it and attach from the inside. Enjoy the spiced up window.
I like the electric powder effect on this creepy outdoor decor. Keep it high enough for the ghost’s eyes to see all Halloween visitors in your compound. That angry face, mmmh no one will want to look at it twice.
Wicked Pumpkin Witch
I believe you all know the wicked witch. And I will make a confession that I am a big fun of the wicked witch character in the series, “Once Upon a Time”. Ii don’t think it will be a bad idea to add this little crazy character in your Halloween party.
Wheelbarrow of Bones
This is another simple craft that is effortless and costs no time. If you have a full skeleton, all you just have to do is disassemble it all. Then fill the wheelbarrow with dirt or mulch and dump the bones and one fake black crow.
Witches Brewing Spot
I believe ghosts have their hiding posts and where they chill, laugh, discuss or the funny scenarios they have had with humans. I wish I could join once if I could understand the language. Well, that doesn’t matter. You can create this image yourself. In case you were wondering how the eerie mist from pot was achieved, the trick is simple; cauldron with dry ice and battery powered light.
Cool Pumpkin Path
Honestly, this is the cutest thing I have seen for Halloween. I don’t mind having this look for Christmas as well. Just have a number of pumpkins and orange Halloween lights, the rest is just your visualization and creativity to get this ambient glow in front of you house.
DIY Halloween Cemetery
I have never been to a cemetery before but I have made one for Halloween 2015. It was an interesting project until turned into nightmares. You can do can do this by the front entrance door. Super!

Well, this is way too much evil sauce…it is on the screen but still scares me. If you want Halloween to get real in your house, this is the project you should do. This ghost mob will scare anyone that wants to cross their path.
DIY Spooky Wreath
This s a DIY project you can do with your kids. A wreath themed into Halloween by the fake spiders, papers and a skeleton head will achieve this easily. Get creative and leave a Halloween note in a unique way.
