Let’s get started with the list of Halloween video ideas that you could recreate for your YouTube channel this year.

4. How to decorate for Halloween for cheap, on a budget
A really good video idea is to share how you decorate your home for Halloween, but on a budget. So you could use really budget friendly things that you can find maybe at the Dollar Tree or Poundland if you’re in the UK like me.
Offer some ideas on how people can do this without having to kind of break the bank to decorate for Halloween.

A lot of people like to throw little parties, maybe with their friends or families just at home.
But obviously you don’t want to break the bank just for Halloween, so doing this on the budget is something people actually search for on Google and on YouTube as well.
Halloween video ideas: Fashion
12. Halloween costume ideas
For fashion videos, you could do lots of different Halloween costume ideas. A lot of people need ideas on how to dress up for Halloween, so this would be a good video to make.
13. Halloween fashion outfit ideas
You could also do a video on Halloween fashion and outfit ideas, but not necessarily a costume. Just maybe more spooky or more scary versions of a regular outfit. Or perhaps you could share more Halloween themed outfits, without them being a full on costume.
14. Halloween costume ideas with regular clothes
You could also do a Halloween costume ideas video with regular clothes. You can use clothes that you already have in your wardrobe and share how you could switch them up for Halloween to turn them into a costume.
15. Halloween Costumes that only take 5 minutes
Going along with that, you could do a Halloween costume idea that only takes 5 minutes. Because some people don’t have a lot of time to spend creating an intricate costume, so they want something quick and easy.
16. Halloween costume ideas for couples
You could also do Halloween costume ideas for a couple or two partners who want to dress up together. That would be a fun video idea to create.

23. Ideas for painting pumpkins with kids
