Easy Halloween Decor


Halloween is so close and I am so excited! Yes, I realize it is still September, but Starbucks has already release the PSL and the first day of fall is only a few days away, don’t judge me. 

I popped into Target the other day and frolicked happily through their display. I am rather impressed with myself, I only bought six items. Success! 

(This has nothing to do with the fact that I have already purchased items from Michael’s Crafts and JoAnns. We’ll just pretend that didn’t happen.)

Anyway, last year I shared my Floating Witch Hats, this year  I came up with two really easy “DIY” decor pieces that anyone can do. Yes, I mean that, you could have two bottles of wine and still manage to get these done.

Be sure to remove the tags from all your fun purchases. (I’m looking at you, Mom.)

First Piece – 


Items needed:

Bird Cage – Target

(You don’t need to get all fancy, the one in the link will do.)

Crow Skeleton – Target 

(NOT a real one, that’s just weird. Also, NOT a live one, you don’t want that mess in your house.)

Now, take the crow (you can give it a name if you want to, I’ll call mine Herbert), open the cage, put him (or her if you have given it a girl’s name) in it, close the cage.

Yep, that easy. 


Look how happy he is, he loves it!

Second Piece – 


Items Needed:

Small Cloche – Target

(Be sure to get the one from the Halloween section, it has a cute bat on top. Plus it is made of plastic, so if you are doing this while full of wine, it’s unlikely you’ll break it.)

Purple Bat Lights  – Target

Orange Pumpkin Lights – Target

(These items are in the  $1-$3-$5 section in store only. If you go, don’t drink or text and drive, thanks.)

AA Batteries – 2 per each light set. 

(Yes, Target carries them too.)


Gently unwind lights from inset in box, and put the batteries in, turn lights on and look at how pretty they are.

Gently place lights in the top of the cloche, spreading them around as evenly as you can. 

Place the bottom of the cloche on, be sure to leave the battery packs out. Flip back over and voila! 


It might take a few tries to move the lights around to how you like them.

These are perfect placed on a mantel or side table!


Woohoo! You did it! Now go make yourself some Halloween Munch to celebrate!
