DIY Halloween Decorations For The Time Pressed

One of my most favorite holidays, second to only Christmas, is Halloween. I spend all year pinning images in hopes that I will remember them when the holidays roll around. Because have you priced what new decorations can cost? If I purchased every decoration that I NEED (yes, I do need them. Don’t roll your eyes at me) I would be broke and be living in my car. No one wants that. So today I am going to show you how you can use what you already have laying around to make two different Diy Halloween Decorations using solar lights and a little creativity!

Simple Craft Project

Normally, my craft projects are super involved and have tons of steps. Not today! I am going to show you how to make light up solar ghosts, and glowing eyes out of the things you most likely already have! To begin you will need:

Solar lights ( I used these ones by Binval for the eyes and a set of warm white for the ghosts)Solar lights for our super easy DIY halloween decorations!

White fabric ( I used the thinnest white I could find. frayed and scrap would work FABULOUSLY for this project)

Toilet Paper Rolls and Paper Towel Rolls ( if you don’t have them, save up for a week. that’s how long I collected all these bad boys!)

Utility knife

Wire for wrapping

Creating Halloween DIY’s Has NEVER Been Easier!

DIY Halloween Decorations made out of solar lights and fabric!

Let’s start with the ghosts. What I did was bundle three lights and wrap, living one loose on each side of the lights. After I got all my bundles wrapped, I cut (extremely haphazardly might I add) and one by one, I would unwrap and lay the white fabric over the light bundle and rewrap it with the wire. You want the bundle to resemble little heads and the rest to be sort of flowing. These DIY Halloween Decorations took me about 20 min!

Glowing Scary Eyes, The LESS expensive way!

For the next Diy Halloween decorations, you need another strand of solar lights (I like these ones because they are waterdrop shaped and stay inside the tube) and some empty toilet and paper towel rolls. THAT IS IT. This is a variation of the glow stick eyes, only using something that is reusable (the solar lights) therefore lasting longer. And with less waste, these DIY Halloween decorations will make you feel like you have done your part!

The hardest part of the eye project is getting the eyes cut out. I ended up not using scissors at all, but instead a utility knife because I had better leverage. First, draw your eyes on the roll. Get creative. Then grab your knife and cut those beauties out. To get the lights inside I used one light on either end and put the entire light (both) inside the roll. The roll stays on because it is being held in place by those long lights.

The Best DIY Halloween Decorations Are The Ones You Make

I told you that this project would be easy! Moreover, you most likely have most of these things in your home! Waste not want not is what granny always said.
