Cheap & Easy DIY Halloween Decorations


hush little baby don’t you cry Mama’s gonna sing you a lullaby. the fairies don’t
talk to me much anymore I don’t understand why. Looks delicious. hey guys it’s
Tasha from one big happy and Halloween is right around the corner so in this
video we are going to be sharing with you five easy and cheap Halloween decor
ideas first up we have this gooey gooey and delicious jello brain to make this
you’re going to need two packs of orange or peach jello five ounces of fat-free
evaporated milk and a plastic jello mold I got mine from the dollar store spray
your mold with nonstick cooking spray this helps make sure that the jello will
actually release once it sets up mix the two packs of jello with one and
three-quarter cups of hot water and then stir until it’s fully dissolved next add
3/4 cups of cold water 5 ounces of evaporated milk and stir again you want
to use fat-free milk so that it doesn’t curdle next you’re gonna add your food
coloring to make the brain look more realistic I used six drops of blue and
five drops of red for more details about this recipe swing by our blog at www.onebighappylife.com We’ll drop a link down in the description box. Now that your liquid’s all done, you’re going to pour it in the mold and refrigerate it for 6 hours. To make this look even creepier, set your Jello on a bed of lettuce. Once it’s firm the Jello should slip right out of the mold. place your brain on the lettuce and then
surround it by some gummy worms and serve it to your guests delicious next up we’re going to make some easy wall art and printables I start out by
printing some creepy pictures of human bones that I found online for free I’ll
drop a link in the description box with more info on where you can find these
spooky free printables once you’ve printed them out and I used plain
printer paper just grab your frame and switch out the new spooky art for
whatever was in there before there are tons of free printables available online
and they are a quick easy and inexpensive way to switch up your decor
for the seasons here I’m using tape to hold the paper in place before putting
the back on again once I’ve got the back on I just put it up there on my mantel
with the other printables and it looks amazing and is free and easy alright now
it’s time for our spooky scarecrow baby to make her you’re going to need burlap
a fake wig a skull baby pajamas and twine I got everything except for the
baby outfit from the dollar store how glue the burlap onto the skull making
sure to keep all of the sunken detailing on the face that’s what makes it creepy
you can cut a hole in the skeleton mouth using a pair of scissors like I did to
add some more creepy details I’ve finished hot gluing the burlap around
the rest of the head and then secured the edges in the back with a hair
scrunchie next you’re going to want to hot glue
the play hair on to the head use twine to add the stitching to the eyes and the
mouth I really like the extra detail and creepiness that it added to the look of
the doll but it didn’t take much time at all which is awesome now that the head is done let’s move on
to the body since we are using this indoors I stuffed it with towels if
you’re going to use it outside you might want to use hay you can distress the
pajamas by dragging it in the dirt or spraying it with coffee if you’d like
and this was just an old set of a set of pajamas that Reeves has outgrown that we
decided to use for this project add a neck to the baby by covering a section
of paper towel holder with burlap then I use the rest of the paper towel holder
to keep the head in place but if you want something sturdier you can just use
paint or a stir stick and there you have it
a quick and easy creepy scarecrow baby to add to your Halloween decor now we’re going to make this 3d skull
art you’re going to need a cheesecloth glue a picture frame and a skull take
the glass out of the picture frame and hot glue the skulls so that the skull
doesn’t move then dilute the glue with one part water paint the glue onto the
face and lay the cheese cloth on top make sure to mold the cheesecloth to the
skeleton as much as possible repeat this step a few times until
you’re happy with the way the layers look I did four layers on ours when
you’re done just wait for it to dry cut off the excess cheesecloth and put the
glass back in the frame and there you have it a quick and easy creepy project
that costs less than three dollars next up is our ferry death cage to make this
you’re going to need a birdcage filler for the bottom of the cage butterfly
wings and miniature skeletons we got ours from the dollar store first you
want to cut the wings off of the clips that they come on then take one of the
mini skeletons and attach the wings to the back of the skeletons using some hot
glue be sure to attach the wings so that the pretty side faces the outside and so
that the bigger part of the wing is at the top then do the same thing for the second
fairy I liked the idea of it being a pair of fairies inside the cage and if
you notice I posed them so that one was laying in the lap of the other one which
makes it even more creepy so next you need to add some filler to the bottom of
the cage to make it look realistic then use some spider webbing to make it look
like our fairy friends have been in the cage for a long time then put the
fairies in the cage and add more webbing to the outside this was a quick and easy
DIY Halloween project with huge creep factor that costs us less than four
dollars to make alright guys I hope you enjoyed these five easy DIY decor ideas
