It wouldn’t be Halloween without pumpkins! But to be really honest, carving pumpkins is not exactly the easiest thing to do. However, there is an alternative method to dress up your pumpkins, which is sooo much easier but looks equally good: Spray paint. Lay some newspaper on your floor, get a pumpkin and a spray paint of your favourite colour, and start painting it!

Glass jars and bottles are your best friends when it comes to easy DIY home decors. They are really versatile, and you can make absolutely adorable and functional decorations out of them! You can print out a design that you like, put it inside the jar and traced it on the outside with a colouring marker. If you are not a fan of drawing or even tracing, you can also wrap bandages around them to create mummy jars. You can really let your creativity juice flow with this one!

Or you can take the easiest way out and just get a ready-made halloween lantern from HipVan!

Halloween is simply not complete without halloween treats. If you are not a baker, you can always get ready-made ones and decorate them! Something as simple as an oreo cookie can be transformed easily into creepy eyeball cookies. With its white fluffy appearance, marshmallows have great potential to be made into adorable ghost treats.

Here is a really good tutorial that we found.
