Transform your home into a haunted house just in time for Halloween.
After all, this is one holiday where the outward appearance of your home is of the utmost importance to bring trick-or-treaters to your door. But don’t let the decorating stop there; bring the spooky spirit inside to create a truly haunted house. Read on to find the top ways to turn your home into a haunted mansion.
There’s no doubt about it – pumpkins symbolize autumn. You’ve probably already picked out the best one in the pumpkin patch or local school fall festival. Display your pumpkins proudly on the front porch. If you want a nature-inspired display, add gourds, white pumpkins, and branches with acorns. If your family wants to get creative, hold a pumpkin carving contest and display the results on your front steps.
Tasty Treats for Your Party
The dining room is an easy place to add Halloween decorations because it is typically more decorative than functional. Make use of it by hosting a Halloween party for friends and neighbors. Incorporate orange, white, and black decorations to evoke the holiday. Have fun with bite-sized, themed treats like candy corn, chocolates, or mini cupcakes.
Spooky Table Settings
Tabletops are a great place to showcase your Halloween spirit. Top your table with spine-chilling decorations like skulls, spiders, and ravens. Keep the color theme dark and monochromatic to make the table settings look even more sinister.
Even the smallest details can make a big impact. Playing with shadows and ornamental pumpkins can give off a Halloween vibe. Drape cobwebs across your fireplace and swap out flowers for scraggly branches. Guests will never be able to guess what is around the next corner of your haunted house.
With these suggestions, it will be a snap to create your own haunted house. In the spirit of Halloween, what are you planning to dress up as this year?
