How to Style Your Home for Halloween Season

  1. Put those ordinary garage doors into good use by creating a spooky, scary scene. Stick adhesive black vinyl sheets to the garage door using a little of your imagination. From bats to pumpkins, you can pretty much stick anything you want. And the best part is that it is easy to remove once the season has passed!
  2. What’s scarier than a headless man in front of your door? That’s right, nothing. This is the ultimate scare every Halloween year. To add a little more spookiness, have the headless man hold a jack-‘o-lantern head. Warning, this may be too scary for some toddlers.
  3. A backyard cemetery is a cheap way to scare those trick-or-treaters. Simply cut cardboard into a shape of a tombstone and paint them to look centuries old. Create multiple tombstones so people will think your house is littered with graveyards. And there you go, your home looks like a creepy cemetery.

Fun Halloween Ideas

  • Once you have finished making jack-‘o-lanterns, you should now make a painted pumpkin city to go with it. The good news about this project is that anyone can easily create this pumpkin city. Simply print these house templates and trace with a felt-tip pen. Now cut where the doors and windows are supposed to be and whalaa! You’ve got a pumpkin city. Watch your fingers when cutting!
  • Need to put that fireplace to work? Try igniting pumpkins on fire. Print these flame templates and trace along the design. Carefully carve along the lines and place candles inside each one for the finishing touch. Don’t carve too much or your home will heat up!
  • Now it’s time to take the fun outside. Set up a Halloween candy station for all trick-or-treaters to experience. Light the way to the candy station by setting up luminaries along the path. Add jack-‘o’-lantern decal to each one to make them scary looking. Give each type of candy a spooky-Halloween themed name to warn trick-or-treaters what they are going to eat.

Getting Your Home Ready for Halloween

  1. Sometimes the simple things are the best things. Here are a few Halloween items to wow trick-or-treaters all night. Start with a festive front door. Swap your old doormat with a new, Halloween-themed doormat. Next, add a bale of hay with a freshly carved pumpkin sitting on top. To top it off, add a couple of hanging bats to give a good scare to trick-or-treaters.
  2. Decorating tree branches is a good way to make your home ghostly looking. Carefully place jack-‘o-lanterns throughout a bare-limbed tree. Remember not to place too many jack-‘o-lanterns or the overall effect will cancel out. One crow on top and one crow at the base of the tree are the perfect pieces to finish the project.
  3. Spooky window decorations are sometimes overlooked during Halloween. But don’t miss out on this great opportunity! Blood-spattered windows are sure ways to attract trick-or-treaters. Cover your windows with wax paper and splatter red paint over it and watch your house be the talk of the town!
