Halloween is here, and decorating your home to be ‘spooky’ can be fun for you and your whole family. Adding that “wow” factor to your Halloween display can turn your home into a real neighborhood showcase.
So, what are the best ways to keep up with the “Munsters” in creating a truly creepy, yet tasteful experience for your kids and your neighbors? Keep your main focus on your home’s exterior and entryway. The first thing that your trick-or-treaters see on their way to your front door is crucial in setting the mood for your ghoulish gathering. Here are three simple tips to help you get started:
- EXTERIOR “HORROR” LIGHTING. The right lights positioned at just the right angle (typically from below), can help create a creepy ambiance!
- WEBS. Pre-packaged or homemade webs are budget friendly, and effective! Using large webs strategically placed can have a ghostly and fun effect, while getting your visitors into the Halloween spirit.
- SCARY WINDOWS. Silhouetted window decorations can be accomplished for pennies on the dollar. Draping a few bats along your shutters, or using spooky skeletons to peer out of your other window coverings can make for a very frightful sight indeed!
Remember the basics while adding your own personal flair, and you just may end up with the most haunted house on the block!
