Scary Homemade Halloween Props
There are many homemade Halloween projects to create scary props. (halloween decoration image by michele goglio from

If you're a true Halloween enthusiast and hope to create a great---and of course, scary---display for the neighbourhood, you can make plenty of props on your own. Many projects require just a few simple materials and a couple hours of your time, and produce Halloween decorations that will scare trick-or-treaters.

13-Hour Clock

A 13-hour clock, with its additional hour, is out of the norm and can easily give a person the spooks. You can make these clocks as props for a Twilight Zone-themed Halloween party or haunted house. It is easiest to make a non-working clock, however you can create working clocks with a few additional instructions. It is important to ensure the number 13---in all its unlucky glory---stands out on the clock so people take note of it.

Alien Capsule

When going for the out-of-this-world frights, you can also create an alien capsule for a Halloween decoration. While this project can be a little more complicated and time consuming, it gives any Halloween display a professional look. It is recommended that you buy a plastic alien prop, rather than attempt to create your own.


Creating homemade scary spiders is a simple project that you can do with children. You can hang these spiders from ceilings, or display them on porches and lawns. They are an easy scare tactic to create, without being too complicated or expensive. Kids can create their spiders to be as scary as they want, complete with evil faces and all.
