Halloween is the time for trick or treat. So, if your center piece is some ghost bottles holding licorices then it won’t be a surprise.

Toilet roll monsters

This is one of the best options if you want to make recycled and cheap Halloween decorations. You just need to gather as many toilet rolls as monsters you need. Get your kids to draw a scary face and color it in with tempera paint. Let them dry and place them anywhere you fancy.

You can also make holes and put some thread through them to make a garland or create some spooky hair with some cotton wool dipped in green paint!

Guy Fawkes inspired decor

Do you celebrate Bonfire Night? if you do you'll know who Guy Fawkes was. Take advantage of the closeness of this holiday and make a Guy Fawkes for your Halloween decor. Fill some old pants you no longer used with balls of newspaper, do the same with an old jumper, making sure none of the paper balls sprout out of the head (sew the head hole if needed). Blow up a balloon and paint a face for a more realistic effect and even add a wig. Splatter it with blood to give it the perfect Halloween decor effect!
