Based off a discontinued item from Pottery Barn Kids, this incredible “chandelier” looks classy and spooky, a perfect Halloween combination. Made from just sewing frames, string, fishing line and compressed foam, this versatile item can hang in virtually any room of the house.

And the bats aren’t the only option; if you wanted to customize, you could create one with pumpkins, substituting orange for black acrylic paint.

61. Candles Can Offer Halloween Glitz

Candles Can Offer Halloween Glitz

While many of the candelabra and other lighting ideas on this list are particularly intricate, sometimes the only effort needed to create an indoor decoration is a little bit of pizzazz. In this example, purple candles are wrapped in a matching glitter, helping create a shimmering veneer that adds some glitz and glamor to an otherwise spooky tablescape. Wrapping the candles with this glitter is simple, and a complementary candleholder that is black and chunky helps add to the glamorous – yet spooky – feel of this unique tablescape.

62. Ghost Town in a Mason Jar

Each person who owns a set of Mason jars probably has their own Halloween indoor decoration idea. In this creative option, the result looks almost like the kind of diorama you would see in a museum. Using medical gauze and bit of Sharpie marker, you can easily create ghosts. Add some twigs from outside and you have an environment for the ghosts to call home. Turn the jar upside down and the illusion is clear: you are viewing a ghost or two who might be floating in a tree just outside the window…

63. Bedazzle Pumpkins with Glitter

Getting creative with pumpkins is one of the best parts of Halloween. In this dynamic example, you can use the pumpkins that are sold at the grocery to create beautiful pieces that fit perfectly in every room of the house. These indoor Halloween decorations are easy to make. After picking out a pumpkin that is well shaped, you can spread a layer of white glue throughout. Cover the pumpkin with plenty of glitter – and, really, you’ll need plenty to cover the entire surface of the pumpkin – and then let dry. Voila! The result is a beautiful, shiny pumpkin that attests to your creative spirit.
