Jack-o’-lantern (pumpkin lamp)
Let’s start the theme of Halloween ideas with the well-known Jack’s lamp which is cut out of a ripe pumpkin. Let’s begin:
- take a long knife with a well-sharpened blade;
- gently chop off the pumpkin’s lid (the top with a stem);
- take out the seeds and pulp from inside with a spoon;
- mark eyes, nose, teeth, and mouth;
- carve out the details with a small knife using left marks.
At the final stage, put a small candle in the pumpkin and close the lid.
Pumpkin with mice
In addition, you can create creative Halloween pumpkin decoration with mice. Just cut out small mink-holes in the pumpkin and place toy mice there. This decor element looks incredibly stylish!
Pumpkin made out of paper
Take the orange paper, cut it into short, but rather wide strips. Then fasten it in the form of a fan form the form of a pumpkin and fix it from above with a stapler. In the end, you can add green leaves and a stem.
The candy vase
This holiday simply cannot do without all kinds of sweets and candies as Halloween treats. Therefore, you can easily prepare nice vases for them. Simply paint transparent or tin cans with orange ink, draw eyes, nose, mouth and enjoy the result.
Halloween ghost and spirits soaring around the house look especially impressive. You will need a large amount of gauze or plain white fabric to do them. The gauze should be immersed in a solution of polyvinyl acetate adhesive mixed with water. Inflate the balloon and place wet gauze on the ball, flatten out as a ghost and leave to dry completely. After drying, blow the ball and use a black marker to draw the eyes and mouth of a ghost on the surface of the gauze. After that, such floating spirits can be hung around the house, fixed on the chandeliers, lamps, doors, and hangers.
