How to Make Pirate Ship Halloween Decorations. If you are looking for a new way to decorate for Halloween, you should create a spooky sunken pirate ship, complete with skeletons and stolen treasure. With a bit of creativity and some simple props you can create an underwater pirate scene that is sure to create a Halloween to remember.

Things You'll Need

  • Plastic skeletons
  • Pirate attire (hats, eye patches, scarves, costume jewelry, hooked hands, swords)
  • Treasure chest or painted cardboard box
  • Newspaper
  • Treasure (plastic beads, chocolate coins, artificial gems)
  • Classic boat accessories (fish nets, rope, seashells, life preservers, anchor)
  • Pirate flag
  • Plastic fish or cutouts
  • Fishing line
  • Fan
  • Black and blue construction paper
  • Black light
  • Set up the pirates. Dress up a few plastic skeletons, equipping them with pirate hats, eye patches, scarves and other pirate attire. Add fake costume jewelry, hooked hands and swords.

  • Create sunken treasure by purchasing a prop treasure chest at a craft store or creating your own from a cardboard box and poster paint. Stuff the bottom two thirds of the box with newspaper and then cover it with cheap plastic beads, chocolate coins, costume jewelry and artificial gems.

  • Cover your walls and windows with fish nets and rope, attaching starfish, seashells, life preservers and even an anchor. Don't forget to proudly hang a pirate flag with skull and crossbones.

  • Hang decorations from the ceiling to create that underwater feel for your sunken pirate ship. Hang plastic fish or fish cutouts with clear fishing line and then direct a fan towards the ceiling to keep them moving. For an added touch, use black and blue construction paper to create portholes looking out into the depths of the sea.

  • Add the final touches to your pirate ship Halloween decorations by plugging in a black light to give the decorations an eerie underwater glow.
