17 Fun Ghoulish DIY Outdoor & Indoor Halloween Decorations 2016

Ah yes, it’s that ghoulish time of year again where the smell of pumpkins prepare your nose for the pumpkin pies that are right around the corner for Thanksgiving.


Dressing up and trick or treating is only half the fun of Halloween when decorating is concerned. Adults have more fun decorating for Halloween than kids have with trick or treating – Don’t quote us on that just a subjective observation. 😉

The DIY Halloween decorations don’t have to be spine chilling, some can, they can be fun and cute, too! However, decorations can be costly and can dust off the cobwebs from the wallet a little too quick. DIY Halloween decorations are not only cheaper to invest in, but MUCH MORE FUN! Let’s check out our list of the top 17 Fun Ghoulish DIY Outdoor & Indoor Halloween Decorations 2016 has to offer.

This post is split into two separate pages. The navigation to the second page will be at the very bottom of this page. Enjoy our ghoulish post! Also, please like our Facebook page 🙂
