25 DIY Decoration Ideas To Make Your Guests Freak This Halloween

Halloween is probably the most fun time of year to decorate. When else is it socially acceptable to set up gravestones on your yard, put spiders and bats in your trees, and buy fake blood by the gallon?

For all you Halloween freaks out there, here are some of the best decorations for your home; inside and out! If you’re hosting a big party this year – you’re welcome.

1. This is a fun craft that the kids can do, and all you need are toilet paper tubes and glow sticks!

It really looks cool at night and sets the tone and is a bit scarier than a pumpkin.

2. What’s creepier than a bunch of dolls all over your lawn?

You can go to a thrift store and buy them cheap, and rip off an arm or leg, pop out an eye, rip their clothes, and why not reduce stress while you’re at it!
