Paper Only Halloween Décor Idea #1. Bouncing Paper Spiders

If you are looking for cheap Halloween decorations you can make with your kids, then paper spiders are right for you. You only need black construction paper, a paper cut, a circle punch, some white Cardstock, a marker, a glue stick, some extra paper, as well as googly eyes.

First, use black construction paper to make the circle spider bodies, as well as to cut and attach legs. Next, you can turn your spiders into bouncing spiders by making a ‘spring’. To do so, glue together white strips of paper so that you create an L shape. The next step includes folding the strips over themselves.
Last, but not least, bring your spiders to life by attaching the googly eyes.

Another great Halloween home décor idea is all about paper bats. Here is all you need if you want to say YES to this project.
First, choose a bat template. Second, you will also need a cutting machine. If you are about to cut by hand, then get some light black construction paper. Last, but not least, do not forget to buy as many glue dots as you need.

Once you have printed and cut the bats, use a bone folder so that you can fold the Halloween bats down the centre. Then, the last step is to add a glue dot to the middle of each bat.

Garlands are some of the most popular DIY Halloween decorations. There are fabric garlands, as well as garlands made of balloons, dry leaves, etc. Nevertheless, we particularly like paper garlands because they are easy to make and maintain. And there are plenty of elements you can play with: spider webs, witch’s hats, pumpkins, etc.

Jack-o-lanterns are certainly one of the best Halloween decorations. Nevertheless, you do not always need to carve a pumpkin in order to add this type of décor to your room. Paper lanterns can be a more practical alternative when you lack time and space. Besides, you can make lanterns that look like a haunted forest, a ghost, a vampire, etc.
