October is almost here and that means taking out pumpkins, spider webs, witches brooms and other Halloween decorations to turn your home’s entrance into the scariest on the block. After all, Halloween is one of the best times to have some seriously wacky fun with hair-raising decorations people will remember for years and years.
Decorating your house for Halloween is loads of fun, and it’s even more fun if you start early and get creative with your plans. So let’s talk about some of the scariest and creepiest ways to decorate the inside of your home.
Where To Place Your Halloween Decorating Ideas
If it’s in your house, you can probably decorate it. Here’s some quick ideas to get started:
- Windows and window sills
- Fireplace mantels
- Doors and doorways
- Steps and staircases
- Tables and countertops
- Corners of the room
Halloween Decorations – Tips To Make Your Skin Crawl
Windows are one of the most visible places to display your Halloween decorations. There are literally endless ways to make a spooky and eye-catching display, just use your imagination.
Here’s a cool idea: Take some heavy construction paper and cut out sinister shapes such as a bat, witch or black cat. Place them in any window or corner of your house. You’ll be shocked at the impact this simple touch makes.
More Spine-Chilling Ideas
Find some crisp, colorful dry leaves in your garden or nearby park. Scoop them up in a big bucket and spread them wherever you want that ghostly, abandoned Halloween feel.
No Halloween is complete without creepy spiders! Scatter lots of them throughout the house and yard. The more the merrier! And don’t forget the fake spider webs that turn any house into a ghostly haunted house.
Spooky Lighting Effects
The right lighting can send chills up any visitor’s spine. Dim your lights really low, put dark colored bulbs in the right places or even go without electric lights and use only candles – that will really freak out even the ghastliest spirit who dares venture into your Halloween chamber of horrors! Just watch where you put those candles so the little ones (and not-so-little-ones) don’t get hurt.
The right lighting can truly make or break your Halloween decor. Why not up the ante with a fog machine – now you’re really rocking! Also try out different colored lights, like red or orange, to make your decorations even more eerie and supernatural.
There’s No Limit To The Ghastly Fun
You really can’t go wrong with whatever Halloween home decorations you try this year. Making your own is a great way to have some family fun. Or you can shop for the endless variety of choices available in stores around this time. Whatever you do, just remember to have fun and share the wackiness of Halloween with all your family and friends.
