Quick Last-Minute Halloween Decorations

Need something quick to decorate your home for the Halloween festivities?  Try these simple ideas today!

Take a black tablecloth and cover the front door.  Either leave blank, or decorate with chalk.  Either way, your guests will be greeted with the creepy darkness of the night!

Want to make some quick tree decorations?  Use white paper napkins and a bit of string.  Crumple up one napkin and place it in the middle of an opened second napkin.  Gather the opened napkin around the ball, creating a “ghost”.  Tie it off to make the head and hang it from a tree.  Simple!

We’ve had several Halloweens where time has simply run out to carve a jack-o-lantern, so we do the next best thing - we paint one!  My boys will paint their own scary face on the pumpkin, and the best part is that any color can be used.  Another great alternative to paint is markers, especially with younger children.  And, it can be washed off once the evening is over!  The best part is you aren’t left with a rotting pumpkin after it is all over; your pumpkin can be saved and used as Thanksgiving decor as well!
