A very easy haunted house decoration can be made using dead flowers. Simply collect several dead flowers from around your home.

Dead flowers petals can be scattered on the floor or over tables for a creepy detail as well.
Another DIY haunted house decoration that is made using recycled materials is dangling dolls. For this decoration you will need old dolls, red paint, black permanent markers, scissors, and fishing line or dental floss. Start by ripping the arms, heads, and legs of the dolls off the bodies randomly.
Use the red paint to add random splotches and smears of blood to the dolls. Then use the black marker to color weird symbols and words on the doll parts. Cut the hair off of the dolls using the scissors. Tie the limbs, bodies, and heads using the floss and hang from the ceiling, chandeliers, and doorways of your haunted house.
Milk Jug Monsters
Milk jug monsters can be easily created for your DIY haunted house decorations. For this decoration you will need milk jugs, paint, fabric, yarn, ping pong balls, paintbrushes, scissors, and glue. Start by cutting several long pieces of yarn.
Tie the yarn pieces into a knot and slip the knot into the mouth of the milk jug. Add glue to secure it in place. Then use the paint to color the entire milk jug. Add the balls for eyes and paint irises for detail. Add more gruesome details to the milk jug to make it look like a face. Then hang the yarn over the front like hair. Place the jug in a dark corner of your haunted house. Cover the top and sides with the fabric to look like a hood. This DIY haunted house decoration is easy to make using recycled materials.
