There are very few times of the year where you can decorate a place with the sole purpose of freaking people out. Halloween is the primary occasion to do so, April Fool’s is a close second and then just general occasions of mayhem come in third. With these simple, yet effective, decorations you can add a sense of spook to any house, apartment, car, classroom, locker or public washroom this Halloween season.

Mad Scientist Jars

What’s creepier than hoarding small rodents and body parts? Nothing, that’s what. With some glass jars, food dye and trinkets you can create a creepy, creepy effect with these Mad Scientist Jars.

Supplies:

  • Glass jar with screw top lid
  • Food dye
  • Water
  • Paper tags
  • Twine
  • Trinkets: plastic rats, bugs, dolls… etc.

Instructions:

  1. Collect your trinkets. This is the most important. Plastic rats and bugs are excellent classics. Think about cauliflower too as it makes a convincing brain substitute and old dolls are very creepy when the water floats their hair, so don’t forget about them.
  2. Fill the jars with water and add food coloring. The color is up to you. Swirl it with a spoon to mix in the dye.
  3. Submerge the trinket. There may be some overflow so please do this over the sink.
  4. Screw the lid on the jar.
  5. Write out what’s in the jar on a tag and tie it to the lid of the jar. The creepier the description the better.
  6. Place your specimen in a spot appropriate for viewing and spooking.

Spider Egg Sacs

Spider egg sacs contain thousands of baby spiders. And bid drooping sacks are sure to contain hundreds of thousands of baby spiders. Hang these from your porch or ceiling and you’re sure to freak out more than a few people.

Supplies:

  • White stocking
  • Foam ball or even tightly crumpled newspaper ball
  • Plastic spiders
  • Hot glue gun
  • Thumb tacks

Instructions:

  1. Cut the stocking in half so that you have two separate legs.
  2. Take your foam ball or newspaper ball and wrap it in one of the stocking legs.
  3. Take your other stocking leg and stuff a few spiders into the foot, so there are a few layers of spiders.
  4. Stuff the ball into the foot of the second stocking.
  5. Glue gun spiders to the outside of the stocking all the way up the leg.
  6. Hang the spider sack with thumbtacks to the ceiling. If they’re really noticeable you can cover the tacks with fake spider webbing.
  7. Now you’ve got a very scary infestation!

Halloween Flamingos

It’s already a little scary to have fake birds with flat black eyes staked to your front yard, but what if they were painted like skeletons? Yes, much scarier.

Supplies:

  • Pink Garden Flamingos- you can find these at most garden stores, even Home Depot.
  • Black spray paint
  • White paint
  • Paintbrush

Instructions:

  1. Spray paint your flamingo bodies. Lay out some newspaper and do this in a well ventilated area like the yard, garage or patio. You may want some adult help with this step.
  2. Let the spray paint dry completely.
  3. Using the white paint, cover the flamingo body with a pattern of bones. Make sure to outline the face and wings. This will take some planning, as you’ll want it to be the same on both sides. But get creative here. Everyone’s pattern will be different.

If bones are too tricky, think about painting the birds all black with red or glow-in-the-dark eyes. There are lots of ways to make them creepy.
