DIY Halloween Decor with LED

Halloween decorations are getting more elaborate each year, coming second only to Christmas decorations. The simple old jack-o-lanterns are just not enough, with people looking for more creative and extravagant ways to decorate their homes. All Hallows Eve is celebrated not only by kids anymore but adults too are equally enthusiastic from dressing up in costumes to lighting up their homes. 

With nearly a week left for the spookiest night of the year, if you’re one of the late runners or if you’re looking for some extra creepiness added into your collection, then keep reading. 

Here are some easy DIY Halloween decoration ideas to create a spooktacular effect at your home or office. 

LED Monster Eyes

Scary monster eyes that would peek from the bushes to scare away the bypassers. 

What you need:

  • Paper Towel Roll
  • Pen/Pencil
  • Scissors
  • LED Tube Light

Step 1

Grab an empty paper towel roll.

Step 2

Draw matching monster eyes on the roll and cut them out.

Step 3

Insert an LED tube light and hide them in your garden bushes or hedges. 

If you want to keep the Monster Eyes safe from rain or prevent them from falling apart, you can substitute the paper roll for PVC pipe or foam. 

Halloween Bottles

It’s time to put that collection of empty bottles in your kitchen to good use. 

What you need:

  • Old glass bottles
  • Halloween stickers/die cuts
  • Black/Orange Spray Paint
  • Cork bottle lights

Step 1 

Soak the bottles in hot, soapy water to get rid of the labels and scrub off the sticky residue with a scourer. 

Step 2 

Once the bottles are dried, use a temporary adhesive to stick the Halloween stickers /die cuts.

Step 3 

Spray paint the bottles with either black or orange (or any other color of your preference).

Step 4 

Remove the stickers/die cuts carefully. Once the paint has dried off, pop in the LED cork bottle lights. 

Enjoy the beautifully illuminated lights on your mantel or place them in your garden. 

Outdoor Flood Lights

Create the perfect Halloween atmosphere by adding an eerie glow.

What you need:

  • LED Flood Lights (Green)

One of the easiest ways to set up a Halloween atmosphere is by lighting up your outdoors with Halloween themed colors. Install floodlights with green or orange shades to give that eerie, mysterious look to your house. For better effect, make sure the floodlights face towards your home or you can even use the lights on trees. 

Shapes with LED Rope Lights

LED Rope Lights are one of the best inventions to display creativity. Rope lights are easy to bend and work well on flat surfaces.

What you need:

  • Close access to power
  • Mounting Clips/Tracks
  • Zip Ties (if required)

Step 1

Draw a Halloween themed shape of your choice.

Step 2

Plug-in and test the rope lights if they’re working and leave it on for a while to warm up the outer plastic.

Step 3

Align the rope lights according to your drawing and use the mounting clips/tracks to keep the rope light in place.

Voila! You have your own glowing, spooky design now.
