How To Give Your Home A Spooky Look For Halloween

How To Give Your Home A Spooky Look For Halloween

Something is lurking and about to give us all a fright! Yes, Halloween is just around the corner and we hope that you are getting into the spirit by adding some frightfully good decorations to your house.

The normal cliché is to just pop some carved pumpkins with tea lights on your front doorstep or in your windows, but there are other blood-curdling ways of giving it an eerie feel.

Bewitching Details

People who walk by your house will be bewitched and look twice when they spot some witch shoes, along with a broomstick, outside of your front door.

They won’t be able to help themselves from cackling if there’s also a sign up with the messaging of “free flying lessons” or “potions on sale”.

With Hocus Pocus 2 just being released on Disney+, it couldn’t be a more timely decorating idea.

Wicked Window Stickers

Send a shiver up the spine with stickers of ghouls and ghosts on your windows. They can be bought for next to nothing and will be easily removable.

What would be even more hair-raising are stickers of evil witches, hairy spiders and super-spooky skeletons.

For a less scary set of window stickers, find some of Casper the friendly ghost, which are available from Amazon.

Chilling Light Box Messages

Trick-or-treaters will tread more carefully as they walk up to your entrance if there’s a light box glowing in your window with some sort of ominous message, like “don’t turn back”.

You can keep changing the messages displayed on the box every day and come up with your best Halloween-themed puns to draw some spooktacular laughs.

It will really shine out as the nights close in, and you can put the light box to use again in the run-up to Christmas, counting down to the big day.
