Halloween is creeping up on us, and if you’ve decided to take on the task of throwing the Halloween party this year, there’s a lot you have to think about. First, you have to think of who you’re going to invite. Are you going to have a smaller party limited to close friends?
Or are you planning on throwing a bigger event? What about decor? Food? Drinks? And let’s not forget about a costume, of course. The party host’s costume has to be iconic. So even if Halloween might feel like a long time away, it’s never too early to start planning.
But whether or not you’re keeping things low-key this year, or want to go all out with your decorations, you can never go wrong with DIY decor. DIY halloween decorations will not only save you money, but they are also fun to make. So break out your glue and glitter and check out these 5 DIY Halloween party ideas:
1. Carve Pumpkins
No Halloween party is complete without pumpkins. Carving pumpkins is fun to do with friends and family and it makes for great DIY Halloween decor. All you need is a pumpkin and some carving tools and let your imagination take over. And if you really want to get creative, you can use a pumpkin carving pattern book to create more intricate designs.
