Scare tactics for the neighbours
If you want to be the talk of your neighbourhood then follow our wicked ways to create that spooky feel in the front of your home. At this time of year, trees are often looking bare, therefore are perfect for decorating with small pumpkin lanterns and lights perched on the branches. You could also consider decorating your front door with crafty cobwebs or bats – these are easy to make and will ensure your house looks extra spooky.
Your mantel piece, shelves and bookcases’ are often decorated with old family photos of your loved ones from present and generations ago – what’s great about this is you can create a ghostly feel to your gallery by adding some cobwebs and some old fashion candles. If you don’t already have pictures in place why not print off some 19th century portraits – these are perfect for creating that ghostly gallery affect.
Black paper of garbage bags are wonderful materials for preparing scary window decorations for Halloween, you can create things like scary manikins, spiders, witches and ghost. Then combine these with orange colour lights or glowing candles and this will help bring Halloween characters into your home – creating a dramatic effect. These silhouette window decorations take just a few minutes to make and you’ll be left with some great looking decorations for everyone to admire.
