As of 2017, 179 million Americans celebrated Halloween, and with the opportunity to dress up, decorate your home, and spend time with your friends and family, it’s easy to see why.
Both children and grown-ups get to dress up and channel their inner kid, and then there’s the added benefit of parties and sweets! Trick-or-treating is also a wonderful way to meet fellow homeowners/parents and build community.
Decorating for Halloween is a fun way to express your creative side! Are you a homeowner looking for some spooky inspiration?
If so, we’ve got you covered. Below you’ll find the top five Halloween decorating tips. Read on (if you dare!).
1. Make an Eerie, Mysterious Centerpiece
A Halloween tree is a spectacular way to add some creepy charm to your home. It doesn’t have to be expensive, either. In fact, you can make it yourself from twigs or sticks collected in your yard. Or, if you prefer, you can buy an artificial colored tree.
Either way, all you have to do is add some ghoulish lights, spooky ornaments, or ghostly banners, and your living area is in the Halloween spirit.
2. Add a Ghoulish Wreath To Your Front Door
The possibilities here are endless, depending on the Halloween vibe you want to convey. A ghostly wreath with felt ghosts and black bows is easy to make and adds a simple and non-extravagant holiday d?cor touch to your home.
For a more elaborate approach, you can go all out with shiny Halloween ornaments and ribbons. To give it a spookier touch, you can add in some plastic spiders or cobwebs on the ornamental wreath.
Whatever you choose, your trick-or-treaters are sure to be pleased (and maybe a little scared, too).
3. Frightening Candles
There’s something about autumn that makes us want to fill our homes with candlelight. Although we usually love candles for their pleasant aromas and sense of ambiance, in this case, candles can be used as a party favor to create a spooky vibe or light up the party.
Luckily, there are lots of options to choose from – You can find candles shaped like pumpkins, ghosts, or skulls to add a classy touch to your party. There are also DIY versions which can be a fun project to do with the kids over the weekend!
4. For a Spookier Mood, Try a DIY Luminary
Luminaries provide a striking effect, and most of them are easy to make yourself. You can use mason jars, cans, or even paper bags.
Cover the jars with tissue paper and pop in a tea light, and you’re all set. Use them on banisters or even along a walkway. These DIY Halloween decorations are sure to let your neighborhood ghosts and goblins know you’re at home and ready for trick or treaters.
5. Creepy Wall Hangings
There are many different kinds of hanging decorations. Consider some spooky mini lights or Halloween garlands. They can be draped across shelves or wrapped around a banister to create a “nightmarish” atmosphere.
You can also hang homemade Halloween decorations using Blu-Tac or picture tacks. The creepier, the better.
