DIY Halloween Decorating Ideas
Hang a Simple Halloween Banner

Use fabric or construction paper and cut out shapes like bats, pumpkins, ghosts, candy corn, or other Halloween symbols. Use mini clothespins to keep them in place on a piece of twine and hang them from your RV awning, tent, or cabin porch.

Place Skeletons Everywhere

There are no bones about it! Skeletons make some of the easiest and best DIY Halloween decorating ideas! Plastic skeletons can be placed anywhere around your campsite or cabin, in all sorts of positions like:

  • Sitting in a camping chair
  • Waving at passersby
  • Holding a spatula in front of your grill
  • You name it!
Set Out a Creepy Picnic Table Centerpiece

After covering your site’s picnic table with a festive tablecloth, set a plastic vase of fake black roses in the center. Spruce up your bouquet with glow-in-the-dark plastic spiders or eyeball lollipops sticking out between the peddles.

Display a Sweet Wreath

For this sweet project, you’ll need a styrofoam wreath, duct tape, a hot glue gun, a ribbon, and Halloween candy. First, wrap the wreath in tape, then use your hot glue gun to completely cover your wreath in candy. You can use any sweets, from candy corn to mini (still wrapped) M&Ms, Snickers, and Kit Kats. Tie a Halloween-themed bow around it once dry and hang it on your RV or cabin door.

Arrange Clever Witch Hats

Line your campsite or cabin with witch hats fashioned from traffic cones. Simply spray paint plastic traffic cones black, then add buckles cut from self-adhesive glitter sticker paper.

Decorate Pumpkins Without Carving Them

Carving out a jack-o-lantern isn’t the only way to decorate a pumpkin. If you bring pumpkins to decorate your site, you can add a bit of personality by wrapping them in:

  • Gauze, creating mummy pumpkins.
  • String lights.
  • White yarn, creating a web pattern and adding spiders.
Apply Spooky Window Decals

Decorate your RV or cabin windows with Halloween-themed decals. They’re easy to stick on and peel off and come in a variety of spooky shapes and images.
