Throw the Ultimate Halloween Party With These DIY Ideas

There's no holiday that's quite as fun or quite as easy to get creative with as Halloween.

It's the time of the year when we're not afraid to get a little sillier or think a little too much out of the box. We've come up with some amazing DIY ideas that will really get the good time rolling.


  • Add some creepy cool fun to your Halloween party with basic party supplies. We've crafted up quite a bit of silly and spooky inspiration for your Halloween party using just a faucet, skull and cross bone ice mold, glow in the dark paint and ping pong eyeballs.

  • Be the hit hostess this Halloween with our super simple DIY Pumpkin Keg tutorial. As long as you've got yourself a Ceramic Water Dispenser Faucet, aka tap, you can make one yourself!

  • Skull and bones ice cream trays are perfect for dressing up Halloween cocktails for non-beer drinkers. We've got 10 spiked sips to spook guests that will impress, but when you add in the ice, they'll really chill you to the bone!

  • Don't want to go the ice route? That's OK! We came up with a clever way to turn our skull and bones ice cube tray into a chocolate mold. Use yours however you'd like, but we set up a spooky s'mores table for party guests to enjoy!

  • While frozen skull and crossbones might be the perfect garnish for certain Halloween cocktails, we think eerie plastic eyeballs are perfect for others. Garnish some devilishly delicious Halloween martinis with these Ping Pong Eyeballs for an eye-catching sip!

  • And though we're all for using Ping Pong Eyeballs in a more elegant manner, don't forget to have some classic fun with them! We've got plenty of Halloween drinking games, but a good old fashioned Beer Pong game using them is bound to be fun!

  • Yea, I guess you could just carve a basic jack-o-lantern, but why not get ambitious? Our gallery of 10 totally creepy cool Halloween pumpkins should inspire you to get a bit more creative with your carving kit!

  • If you're not up for carving a pumpkin, try decorating yours in a more crafty way. We got creative with glow in the dark paint, but the crafty ways to dress your Halloween pumpkin are endless! Check out more DIY pumpkin decorating ideas we're loving.

  • We love this fall leaves card from Ruff House Art. The perfect excuse to send some spooky snail mail (or of course a friendly hello)!
