When the leaves start changing and fall arrives, it’s time to decorate for Halloween. If you plan to go extra spooky this year, convert your home into a real fright! Haunted house decorations–from spiders and witches, to ghosts and bats–will turn your cozy abode into a real spooktacular Halloween destination!
Start by making your porch and lawn a festive holiday sight. After decorating with pumpkins carved by the kids, add a little excitement to the front door. Check out our Creepy Reaper Door Greeter. His glowing eyes and movable jaw will scare anyone who crosses his path!
Add to the fun by making rustic gravestones out of craft foam. Use gray spray paint to color the foam and black permanent markers to write ghoulish messages on the stones. Then, position a few weathered skulls at the bases of the gravestones. Earn bonus creativity points for using some potting soil to make the graves look extra “fresh”.
Once inside your home, keep the scary theme going strong. Hang a mummified skeleton in the corner or have the kids build a witch from an old Halloween costume. Let guests stumble upon the new member of the family for a frightful surprise.
