With the Halloween clock counting down, I know you all are looking for the best and creepiest decorating ideas, to spook up your home. So let's turn to those crafty fiends at Pinterest and see what's making the list for the best scares for Halloween. These DIY ideas are super easy and very high on the EEEEKKKK factor!

Here's my top 5 Pinterest Classics.....

5. The snake wreath
Spray paint the grapevine wreath black, add lots of rubber and plastic snakes with your hot glue gun. You can't get much more simple than that!

4. The vomiting witch
Use those pumpkin carving skills to dress up a watermelon to serve some festive fruit salad. Place the witch's hat on top, then stand back and watch your guests be totally grossed out!
3. The head in the jar
This is probably the most simple, but one of my absolute favorites.... take a Halloween mask, put it in a jar (that has a lid) and fill it with water. Poof! You're done! Now, if you want, you can also add a few drops of  food coloring, (I love red, but any color would look great!) secure the lid, and give it a good shake. So easy and sooooooo creepy! 
2. The Monster Meatloaf
When making your regular meatloaf... just a few added extras will really make this a meal to remember! Use your favorite meatloaf recipe, shape it into a skull. Add onion slices to make eyes and teeth, then add a few slices of bacon like in the photo above. Bake as usual. I want to be invited to this dinner party!
1. The bloody body bag
My number 1 favorite scare, and another so-easy-it's-silly idea, and the one guaranteed to get the most screams! Take some old material, form a body, then wrap it in a sheet, and secure with duct tape.
Don't forget to add some fake blood, and have a few of these guys scattered in your front yard. I promise, this one will have your neighbors running for the hills!
There are so may amazing, creative people on Pinterest, so be sure to check it out for lots of great Halloween ideas! And with that countdown clock ticking, you better get moving, NOW!
