Glass Pumpkin Blocks
Take your Halloween to the 21st century with these modern yet spooky glass pumpkins. When talking about DIY indoor Halloween decorations, pumpkins naturally are always one of the main ingredients. With this spooky DIY craft idea, you can use the traditional pumpkin idea and add a modern touch. These clever glass pumpkin blocks are easy to make and, once finished, look absolutely thrilling.
All you need to craft your own glass pumpkin blocks is some black vinyl, orange tulle, black bottle cleaner, a glass block, and some LED lights. The first thing you’ll want to do is take the black vinyl and cut out the eyes, nose, and mouth of your pumpkin. Once completed, take your glass box and glue them on. After this, place the LED lights inside the glass block and carefully wrap around the orange tulle. Now, take the black bottle cleaner and use it as a ribbon to secure the top of your glass pumpkin block. Once ready, all you have to do is plug in your LED lights, and you’ll have your very own glass pumpkin block light!
DIY Halloween Poison Bottles
Witches are, most likely, one of the first things you think about when somebody mentions Halloween. The thought of having a scary old witch in your home may bring shivers down your spine, however, we have to admit that witchcraft does bring along a great inspiration for DIY indoor Halloween decorations. One of these witch-inspired decor ideas are these simple yet beautiful DIY poison bottles.
The next time you’ve emptied a glass bottle, don’t throw it away! Instead, turn it into some sleek DIY indoor Halloween decor. To make your bottles look like some old scary witch’s poison jars, all you need is some spray primer and black spray paint. Simply clean your bottle and let it dry. Apply one layer of spray primer followed by 2 or 3 coats of black spray paint. As a finishing touch, add some handwritten labels and you’re all done. This is one of those DIY indoor Halloween decorations that works best in a group. So, try to make a couple of poison bottles and display your potent potables together. To add an extra spooky touch, it is advised to use glass bottles in different shapes and sizes.
DIY Haunted Terrarium
One of my absolute favorite DIY indoor Halloween decorations is this indoor terrarium that comes with a spooky touch. This unique holiday decor piece will literally add some ‘’spirit’’ to your kitchen counter. And the best part of it is that once Halloween is over, you can simply remove the little ghost and keep the terrarium as some stylish home decor. After all, it’s never a bad idea to add some more greens into your home!
This unique craft idea is perhaps one of the cutest yet easiest DIY indoor Halloween decorations you’ll come across. All you need is a large glass jar, basic craft supplies, and a tiny bit of imagination. If you already have a terrarium at home, you can simply add a little ghost yourself. For the real craft lovers among us, it naturally is also possible to make the terrarium yourself.

To make these scary haunted mirrors, you’ll need an antique mirror and a bunch of other households/kitchen supplies.

Mini Bat Pumpkins
Although the glass pumpkin boxes that were mentioned above are a great piece of Halloween decor; nothing goes above the traditional pumpkin. We all have made our own lanterns before by carving out some pumpkins. But you can use these beauties for so much more than simply carving lanterns. Why not, for example, turn them into some cute mini bats?
Simply get yourself some small white or orange pumpkins and cover them with a few layers of black chalkboard paint. While you let your pumpkins dry, grab some thin black craft foam and cut out some spooky bat wings. Once the paint has dried, carve out two thin cuts at each side and insert the bat wings. You can use some glue to make sure they stay in place. Now, grab yourself some white chalk and draw on the eyes and mouth. And there you have it; your very own DIY mini pumpkin bats. This is one of the easiest DIY indoor Halloween decorations that are guaranteed to set the right holiday mood.
