If you want fun and unique Halloween decorations, but don’t want to put a ton of time and money into it, the stars of HGTV’s Property Brothers Jonathan and Drew Scott have six spook-tacular DIY ideas for you!

No. 1: Garbage Bag Spiderweb

This is so cool, quick and practically free to make! Everyone has garbage bags lying around! Drew shows you how to cut a bag so that it looks like a spider web! Fun!

No. 2: Bat or Ghost Tree

If you have a large vase with tall branches or reeds, just cut out fun Halloween shapes like bats or ghosts, stick them on to the branches with double sided tape, and arrange artfully.

No. 3: Caution Tape Wreath

If you’re trying to convey “cute” and “creepy” in the same decoration, try this super-simple caution tape wreath.

No. 4: Eyeball Wreath

For a spooky wreath your neighbors will love to feast their eyes on, try gluing dozens of eyeballs onto a Styrofoam wreath!

No. 5: DIY Spooky Lanterns

Just take an old tin can, draw a Halloween design on, then (carefully!) drill small holes along the outline of the design. Instant spooky lantern!

No. 6: Chicken Wire ‘Ghost’

This one is very cool, albeit a little more technical. Form chicken wire into the shape of a person, to get a creepy ghost effect! For an added fright factor, paint your ghost with glow-in-the-dark paint!
