1. Fabric stuffed pumpkins

Fabric stuffed pumpkins make cute Halloween decorations you can reuse for years. Take a knit circle, place some foam or stuffing in the middle, and close the edges to form a ball. Wind a bit of twine around the ball to make it look like a pumpkin.

Here’s a simple Halloween decor idea. Hollow out a pumpkin and fill it with seasonal flowers.

3. Friendly ghost

For this one, you’ll need a blown-up balloon, a white sheet and a felt-tip pen. Draw some cute eyes on the sheet, throw it over the balloon and hang it outdoors to make your very own friendly ghost.

4. Pumpkin lanterns

Jack-o-lanterns aren’t the only thing you can do with a pumpkin. Hollow one out and use an apple corer to make some holes. Voilà! Now you have a beautiful giant lantern!

5. Halloween pennants

Cut some triangles out of a piece of felt and make two holes on the shortest side. Then string them onto a piece of rope or twine. Get the kids to help for some family fun.

8. Painted pumpkins

You can decorate a pumpkin without removing all the seeds and guts. Try painting it a striking colour—like gold—or adding a motif.

9. Light and shadows

Cut out scary shapes (cats, bats, spiders, etc.) of various sizes in black paper. Tape the fake shadows to your furniture, mirrors and picture frames. You can also hang string lights to accentuate the shadows.

11. Halloween white

Although black is often considered one of the main colours of Halloween, you can put together a look that features white instead. Orange and white create a striking contrast. Consider painting a pumpkin white and sticking spiders or other plastic bugs on it.
