Create creepy Halloween decorations in just minutes!
Things are getting really creepy this Halloween! 🎃
Easily create frugal and creepy Halloween decorations with our DIY idea using just water, masks, and a jar! Trick-or-treaters are going to love it or fear it!
Decorating for Halloween can be so much more than just pumpkins and pretty fall wreaths. If you’re looking to make things extra creepy this year, this is the craft for you and your home.
The results of these creepy Halloween decorations are totally unreal! Literally!
I’ve never been a huge Halloween fan, but my two boys enjoy scary things, so I’ve started to come around to the idea of adding some creepy Halloween decorations to our home.
Oh, the things we do for our kids. 😂
My Hip sidekick, Lina, made this craft years ago so last year I decided to make my own! My boys got such a kick out of it and it also makes for some great decor come trick-or-treating!
All you’ll need to make these creepy Halloween decorations is a creepy mask (the more realistic, the better!), a glass jar, and water!
The masks I used last Halloween are no longer available, but here are some I spotted online that would be perfect!
Heading in the store? I found a larger selection at my local Walmart and many of the more affordable masks under $10 weren’t available online.
As another idea, head to your local thrift store for a possible score! While I didn’t luck out at mine, you may be able to find a creepy mask for just a couple of bucks which makes this easy DIY even easier on your wallet!
Even better, you can make this Halloween DIY even more frugal if you already have a mask laying around. 👏🏻
*Note that masks made of hard plastic are not ideal for this craft.
Hip Tip: Dollar Tree also has tons of Halloween masks to choose from if you’re on a really tight budget. I personally didn’t feel their masks last year were that great so I opted for the more realistic options at Walmart for mine despite being more expensive.
I found gallon-sized jars work best to fit my Halloween face masks and since I didn’t have any laying around, I grabbed a few at Walmart.
Plus, these glass storage jars are super trendy right now, so even though they weren’t the most frugal idea, they can easily be repurposed. Consider using them as a pretty pantry storage idea or even for regifting as Lina did for this Christmas idea!
A gallon-sized pickle jar is a frugal option for this DIY too.
If you have one laying around or plan to purchase a jar of pickles for your upcoming Halloween party, Lina originally shared these creepy Halloween decorations using an old jar she had!
That makes this DIY potentially FREE if you have a jar and a mask already! 👏🏻
This sealed or air-tight glass jar idea is best if you plan to place your creepy Halloween mask jars in places they could potentially be knocked over.

Save your creepy Halloween decorations for next year!
Once Halloween is over, empty your jars and lay your masks out to dry so you can save them for next year’s creepy Halloween decorations! 👏🏻
Well, I’m not too sure what our neighbors will think, but the boys sure are getting a kick out of this simple and creepy Halloween decorations DIY! LOL! 🤣
