If you are anything like me, there never seems to be a shortage of empty toilet paper rolls lying around your bathroom, especially if you have kids in the home. Instead of throwing them out, upcycle them into creepily delightful Halloween crafts to decorate your home. Upcycled Wonders has a great collection of Halloween crafts you and your kids will love to make this Halloween season.

Toilet paper – for all your home decorating needs….who knew, right?

4. SPOOKY SPOONS

Halloween toys. Witch made of a wooden spoon tissue paper and pipe cleaners and a cat made of an old pencil and pipe cleaners. Concept for Halloween craft and fun with children.

I’m always surprised to see some of the awesome creations people make with the simplest of things. Like spoons – that little utensil we use for eating, baking, or strike a couple of them on your knee and they become musical instruments. Well, you can now add home decor to the list of things spoons are good for. Spice up your creativitiy this Halloween with spooky spoon crafts that are sure to impress. Try making a Mummy-Wrapped Spoon, or Vampire Puppets. No Halloween would be complete without Black Cats, Witches, and Pumpkins

1. Set the table for a Creepy Dinner Party

A quick visit to a party, craft, or dollar store will supply you with everything you need to turn your dining room table into the focus point of your Halloween party. Start with a tablecloth. Try layering black lace over burlap or draping fake spiderwebs to create a spooky base. Have fun with your place settings and other table top decor. Candlesticks, pumpkins, skulls, and black birds serve as great centerpiece ideas and place card holders. Spice up your dinner and drinkware by buying Halloween themed plates, glasses & napkins, or make your own with Halloween decals and fabrics.

4. Create A Spooky Atmosphere
This is probably the most important element to hosting a great Halloween party. Don’t hesitate to go all out with your decor – both inside and out.  Include lots of fake spiderwebs – drape them on cabinets, lighting fixtures, picture frames and across your ceilings in small spaces. Keep your lights dim and utilize candles, jack-o-lanterns, and other lighted decor to set the mood. Have spooky music playing discreetly in the background.
