20+ upcycled Halloween decor ideas

Cheap Halloween decor is easy to find at any store once fall hits, but most of it is made from cheap plastic and doesn’t have much personality. I had so much fun making this list of tutorials and inspiration to make more creative Halloween decor from dated thrift store materials, old toys, or plain old trash. If I missed any of your favorite ideas, please leave a comment and I’ll be happy to add them!

I tried one of the ones below, what do you think! It’s so much fun to try and thrift mundane things that can be turned spooky.

Halloween crafts are the perfect time to bust out all the shiny, spooky, over the top paints and supplies that don’t “fit your aesthetic” year round. If your thrift stores are few and far between, try posting in a local reddit, Buy Nothing group, or Nextdoor chat and ask for knickknack donations that folks are done with. I bet you’ll be surprised at all the goodies you end up with, just ready to be spooky-fied!
