10 Halloween DIYs and Life Hacks

Hello! Today, I'm going to show you ten Halloween DIY's and life hacks that are perfect for parties or just for decorations.

Let's get started!


 1 DIY Ghost Trick or Treat Bucket


DIY Ghost Trick or Treat Bucket

First, I'm going to show you how to make this cute ghost trick or treat bucket out of a ice cream bucket. I think this is a great way to recycle something instead of throwing it away and you can save some money.

What you will need is a ice cream bucket or any type of bucket with a handle will work, cardstock paper, scissors, a pencil, and tape or glue.

Draw and cut out the eyes and the mouth of a ghost out of cardstock paper. Make sure the eyes and the mouth fit on the side of the bucket before putting them on the bucket.

Then tape or glue the mouth and eyes on the bucket. If there is a sticker on the bucket you can tear it off.

2 DIY Spider Web Life Hack

Now I'm going to show you how to use pillow stuffing as spider webs.

All you have to do is spread out the pillow stuffing very thin by pulling it but not completely pulling it apart. Then place it carefully onto your objects.

3 DIY Paper Roll Candle

For this DIY, I'll show you how to make this white bloody candle out of a fake candle, glue gun, and a paper roll. I think this is a lot more easier and faster than waiting for candle wax to drip onto a real candle.

All you will need is a paper roll, white and red paint or whatever color you want, a fake candle, paper, a paintbrush, and a glue gun.

Paint the paper roll white and wait to dry.

When dry take the glue gun and start from the top and make lines of glue all the way around the paper roll. Make some of the lines of glue longer than the others and some of them shorter.

When the glue drys, paint the glue red.

When the paint is dry, crumple up a piece of paper and put it inside of the paper roll through the bottom. Make sure the paper doesn't go through the top of the paper roll.

Then place the fake candle at the top. The light of the fake candle should be only thing seen on the top of the paper roll.

4 DIY Costume Life Hack

5 DIY Spider Ice

Put some spiders into the ice cube tray and put water in with the spiders. Then freeze the tray in the freezer for a couple of hours or overnight.

Then you can take them out when frozen and put them into any drink. It will look a lot cooler in clear drinks like water.
