This American-born holiday is a time when both children and adults can have a lot of fun, dress up as fictional characters, engage in eating inhuman amounts of candy, go trick-or-treating, and more.

Well, just like Christmas, a lot of people like taking the Halloween spirit to the next level, giving their house a complete and spooky makeover via decorations, lights, music, specific foods, and more.

Speaking of which, if you’re thinking about your house this Halloween, but have no idea where to start, just take a look at this article, where we will be listing the best Halloween decoration ideas that you can try.

We won’t just be including things that you can decorate your house with, we’ll also be listing things that you can cook, as well as things that you can craft with minimal effort.

Halloween Party Ideas for Kids

The great thing about Halloween is that despite the fact that the overall theme is spookiness, there’s a way that you can pull it off without actually making it scary, especially considering how kids are actually the ones that enjoy this holiday the most.

Because of that, here’s a small list of Halloween party decoration ideas that will especially catch the eyes of your younger visitors.

1. Halloween Party Decoration Ideas – Spider Webs

Halloween party decoration ideas spider webs

Spiders are the things nightmares are made of for many people, so naturally, they make ideal inspirations when it comes to Halloween decoration ideas.

Thankfully enough, you can go ahead and try out this Halloween spider web decoration without worrying that you’ll scare anyone since it’s not only not scary, it’s actually pretty cute.

As far as materials go, all you need is a glue stick, some white paint, a paintbrush, two googly eyes (or more, since we’re talking about spiders), a black pipe cleaner, three popsicle sticks, a black crafting pom-pom, some white string, and a pair of scissors

Of course, this idea is very flexible, so you don’t have to follow the instructions for the letter. You can go ahead and use more legs, make the spider a different color, make the web bigger, and pretty much any adjustment you can think of, all while using the video above as a starting point!

2. Halloween Party Decoration Ideas – Paper Cone Witch

Witches are a trademark of Halloween, just like vampires, mummies, ghosts, and ghouls, so it’s only natural that many people decorate their entire house using witch-themed decorations.

Sure enough, there are plenty of things that you can try out, but if you want to keep things simple, and you also want to make something that’s more cute than scary, then filling your house with paper cone witches is a great way to start.

You don’t need to go out of your way in terms of buying crafting materials, since you only need some scissors, some construction paper, some orange yarn, black pipe cleaner, a couple of felt tip pens, and some glue (preferably a glue gun)

This particular decoration is very easy to create, and because of that many people opt to make a lot of them and hang them around the house like Christmas globes to make them look like they’re flying.

For a complete guide on how to make this decoration a reality, check out this step-by-step article on how to make a paper cone witch for Halloween.

Halloween Party Favors

If you like keeping things simple and usually avoid big flashy holiday decorations, then maybe you’re the type of person who opts for party favors instead.

If that’s the case, here are a few examples of ingenious yet straightforward Halloween decorations that you can make using some of the most common household items available.

3. Halloween Party Decor DIY Candy Holder

Halloween party decor diy candy holder

Halloween is about candy, just like Christmas is about presents, and while you could simply just keep all of your candy inside bowls or the traditional Jack-o-Lantern, you can take things a step further by creating a candy holder shaped like a witch’s boot.

All you need is some glue, an empty toilet paper roll, a pair of scissors, a pencil, some colored crepe paper, and some colored regular paper.

These DIY decorations are easy to put together, and while they are a bit too small to hold all of your candy, they are just the right size to hold single-servings.

In fact, if you really want to make a big impression on the neighborhood trick-or-treaters, you can make several dozen candy holders and give them away whenever someone knocks on your door.

Another great thing about these candy holders is that if you change the color scheme from the traditional orange, purple, or black to green, red, and white, you can go ahead and make these decorations for Christmas and call them elf boots instead!

4. Halloween Party Themes – Lollipop Spiders

Halloween party themes lollipop spiders

Spiders can either make your skin crawl or you can perceive them as cute since a lot of them have a kind of fur covering their entire body.

Well, if this Halloween you want to showcase the cute side of these-8-legged critters, you can go ahead and make your very own lollipop spiders.

These can be made using materials that pretty much everyone has around the house, except maybe for the lollipop sticks, but then again we don’t think you’ll mind eating a couple of dozen of them for the sake of crafting.

All you need to make a single lollipop spider is some colored yarn, some crepe paper, 2 googly eyes (4, 6, or 8 will do just as well), a pair of scissors, some glue, black and grey pipe cleaners, a small black and grey crafting pom pom, and of course, a lollipop stick.

The end result will serve not only as a form of decoration, but kids can also play with the spiders since the eyes are very amusing, and they can also bend the legs as much as they want.

5. Halloween Party Decor – Lollipop Ghosts

If you suffer from a severe case of arachnophobia and not even googly-eyed spiders can make you think otherwise, you could always try making lollipop ghosts instead.

Ghosts are iconic during Halloween, and the best part about this particular Halloween party favor is that they are even easier to make than the spiders.

All you need is a lollipop, some white yarn or string, a black felt-tipped pen, a pair of scissors, and some white crepe paper, although if you really want your little ghosts to stand out you could always opt for some glow-in-the-dark paper instead.

The kids will love playing with them, and when they finally get tired, they can just rip open the ghostly packaging to enjoy a delicious lollipop.

6. DIY Mini Felt Halloween Trick or Treat Bags Tote

Diy mini felt halloween trick or treat bags tote

Many children will usually go for brown paper bags when trick-or-treating, while some may decide on using a Jack-o-Lantern-shaped bag instead.

If you’re not very keen on spending any money and getting one for your kids, you could always opt to make your own mini felt Halloween trick-or-treat bag using nothing more than what you have around the house, as well as your imagination.

You only need some felt (preferably orange, black-with adhesive, and brown), a pair of sharp scissors, a metallic silver fabric paint pen, some black embroidery floss, and an embroidery needle.

While this particular party favor may seem a bit complicated to make, you don’t have to worry about not being a very good tailor, since this is a very beginner-friendly thing to make.

Halloween Party Food

Every country has its own traditional Christmas dishes, be it a traditional turkey roast, a fruit cake, or anything else of the sort, and just by smelling that specific dish inside someone’s house, you know that Christmas is here.

Well, Halloween doesn’t have any particular Christmas dishes, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t use your culinary skills to really get into the Halloween spirit.

The great thing about Halloween dishes is that there are no specific norms that need to be followed, and the main focus of these dishes is how you decorate them.

That being said, here are the best Halloween-themed party foods that will really put the treat in trick-or-treating!

7. DIY Halloween Party Witch Finger Cookies

Diy halloween party witch finger cookies

The first Halloween food item on our list is the witch finger cookies, and these are as delicious as they are creepy looking, so don’t worry about whether or not your guests will like them.

You don’t need any particular ingredients to make these cookies except maybe some halved almonds for the fingernails and the red food coloring that will give the cookies a bloody look.

Of course, you can make this recipe a step further and make the fingers look like something else entirely, such as dragon claws or bony skeleton fingers where you can use green coloring for a slimy look instead of red.

We’ve made an in-depth guide on how to make witch finger cookies, so go ahead and read it to find out how to make about 4 dozen of them.

However, keep in mind that, if baked properly, these cookies can be dangerously delicious, so make sure you don’t eat them all before trick-or-treaters or visitors arrive.

8. Spider Web Cupcakes

Spider web cupcakes

When it comes to party foods, having small snacks that you can pick up with your hand and eat without a plate has always been a fan favorite, so it goes without saying that any type of cupcake recipe will work marvelously.

For example, cupcakes that have a spider web motif are guaranteed to be a hit, and the best part is that there’s nothing special about the recipe except for the way you decorate the glazing.

All you need are some typical cupcake ingredients, some white and dark chocolate to make the icing, and a toothpick that you’ll use to make the spider web pattern, and you’re pretty much done.

If these mini-desserts caught your attention, follow this in-depth article on how to create the perfect Halloween spider web cupcakes, and you’ll have everything you need to create around 16 cupcakes.

9. Jack-O-Lantern Pumpkin Pies

If you’re from the US, you know that the pumpkin is the unofficial food of Halloween (or autumn for that matter), so it goes without saying that a dish that showcases its flavor will be a natural hit with your guests.

Additionally, the pie has become a staple of any household, especially when family reunions and parties are involved, so the most Halloween-ish dish that you can come up with is a pumpkin pie, and if you can manage to decorate it accordingly, you’ll really impress everyone.

That’s precisely why we went ahead and wrote a complete guide on how to make Jack-o-Lantern-themed mini pies, where all you need is the typical ingredients for a regular pumpkin pie, but with a bit of extra imagination when it comes to decorating it.

10. Fluffy Marshmallow Monsters

Fluffy marshmallow monsters

While all of the previous recipes are solid choices for creating Halloween snacks, they all require baking and a bit of time put into them, so if you’re looking for a faster alternative (primarily something that doesn’t need any baking), you can’t go wrong with some scarily delicious Halloween marshmallow monsters.

The list of ingredients is pretty short and straightforward: jumbo marshmallows, candy, chocolate icing, sprinkles, toothpicks, piping for icing, and whatever other candies or food elements that you’d prefer for decorating.

You can really let your imagination run wild with these monster marshmallows, and as long as you remind the kids that the toothpicks can be dangerous choking hazards, things should be fine.

However, keep in mind that marshmallows aren’t very filling, even by candy standards, so make sure that these aren’t the only foods you have lying around for your guests to try out.

11. Halloween Party themes – Witch’s Brew Cocktail

So far we’ve only talked about Halloween-themed foods, so we think it’s time we also added a Halloween-themed drink to our list, more specifically the witch’s brew Halloween cocktail.

All you need is 2 ounces of bourbon whiskey, 1 ounce of Luxardo Maraschino Liqueur, 1 ounce of fresh lemon juice, half an ounce of maple syrup, a dash of molasses bitters, 2 sprigs of fresh rosemary, matches, and a candle.

These ingredients will be enough for 2 glasses, so if you’re having a big party planned, make sure that you have enough of everything you need.

Sure enough, you don’t have to follow the recipe to the letter, and you can even swap some of the ingredients for some alcohol-free alternatives for the kids to try out.

More so, you can even prep this cocktail beforehand, store them into vials and bottles, and create custom labels to further enhance their magical feel.

However, keep in mind that you are free to use whatever items you want as well as whatever colors you like most, just as long as you make sure that the materials are non-flammable, or at least place them in an area where the flames won’t reach them since you don’t want your Halloween decorations lighting up like it’s New Year’s Eve.
