SUPPLIES TO MAKE DIY HALLOWEEEN CLOCHE

Spending on seasonal decor can really add up—but giving your home a spooky atmosphere for the Halloween doesn’t have to cost a fortune or require a lot of effort with this DIY Halloween Cloche.

This spooky decoration is so simple, fun, and affordable it’s downright scary! In fact, I was able to make it for less than $15!

All you need to make this Halloween Cloche are:

If you can’t find the baby doll head, you can use one from Amazon, Etsy, or Ebay, by searching for “Halloween baby doll head” or “zombie baby doll head”. Or you could use a skull. Just make sure whatever you use is hollow on the inside.

You could also make you own using this tutorial.

DIY HALLOWEEN CLOCHE INSTRUCTIONS

Making this creepy cloche for Halloween couldn’t be easier. Seriously. If you can use a hot glue gun, then making this DIY Halloween decoration will be a breeze!

Here’s how to make a DIY Halloween cloche:

STEP ONE: ADD SPIDERWEB

  • First you will need to add a drop of hot glue to the very top of the inside of the cloche lid.
  • Next, add a small piece of spiderweb.
  • Once the glue has dried, use your fingers to pull down on the spider web stretching it out until you get a look you are happy with. Use scissors to trim off any extra.

  • Using a tiny drop of hot glue, glue the spider to the top side of the baby doll’s head.

And that’s really all there is to it! Isn’t it delightfully creepy?!

At night carefully remove the lid and turn the tealight on for an extra eerie DIY Halloween decoration.

The glowing eyes are spooky enough, but the way the light shines through some of the “cracks” in the head makes this DIY Halloween Cloche incredibly c.r.e.e.p.y!
