Introduction: Halloween Character Decorations DIY

About: I am an obsessed DIYer, Woodworker, and home flipper. I am not a professional or have any training, so I just pick the project I want to tackle and figure it out step by step. I picked up my first project at…

This may just be the EASIEST project yet - and anyone can do it as long as you have access to some 4x4 pieces of wood - or you could technically paint on nearly any object.

Thank you tuning in. You can catch the video on this project above and if you are interesting in watching more content like this, check out my YouTube channel and consider subscribing HERE!

Alright... lets go!


4x4 Wood

Step 1: Cut the Pieces

The cuts here are completely random and to your choosing.

I made my Frankenstein the tallest because he's a monster and just used the lengths for the other pieces that I had scraps of.

The only other cut needed is a stem for the pumpkin. In my case, I just cut a 2x2 to about 1" thick.

Step 2: Paint the Pumpkin

Then it's time to paint away.

I began by painting the pumpkin with some orange spray paint. Once I had a couple of coats, I penciled in the faces and painted those black.

I painted the little 2x2 stem a brownish color.

Step 3: Paint Frankenstein

Next up was Frankenstein - this took a little more detail.

I didn't buy an entire can of green spray paint just for this guy, so I purchased a little tube of green puke paint.

For the hair and white - I used cabinet paint and wall paint. Pretty much everything here is made from recycled material except for the green.

Step 4: Paint the Ghost

The last one I went to is the ghost which ended up being my favorite.

I just brushed on some white wall paint from my house.

Step 5: Finishing Touches

And lastly, glue on the stem for the pumpkin and then spray a clear coat across all surfaces of these characters, even the bottom.

I will be placing my decorations outside so that is why I want them heavily protected.

These are all done now and look beautiful - I really have no Halloween decorations except for handmade stuff so this was a great addition.
