Spooky Halloween decor ideas
Halloween is just around the corner. If you haven’t decorated your house yet, there is still time. Decorating for Halloween can be fun and creative. All it takes is a little inspiration.
Here are some spooky Halloween decor ideas!
First up, we have projectors. Projectors are an easy way to decorate your house just in time for trick-or-treaters. Many stores sell small lamps that cast light on your house in the form of skeletons, ghosts, zombies, and more. Some are stationary, but many spin or ripple.
You can take this a step further by getting an actual projector to play a DVD or YouTube video on a see-through projector screen or cloth.
Cobweb is a common way to decorate a house for Halloween. Many different kinds can be seen at your local big box or party store, and a little goes a long way. Stretching some web across your front porch or on the sides of your house can be done in an afternoon or evening.
Looking for an easy DIY project that doesn’t involve a trip to the store? These garbage bag spider webs from How About Orange might be for you! It involves just folding a garbage bag, sketching out the shape, and cutting the folded bag top create the web. You can see the full directions on their blog.
Front yard cemeteries are another fun decor project. Depending on how many foam headstones you stake in the yard, it can become a centerpiece. In addition to staggering foam headstones, placing plastic bones or zombie hands coming out of the ground can make your cemetery even creepier.
That brings us to the next idea:
What better way to welcome people to your cemetery than with an entryway? These can either be purchased or you can DIY them to fit the theme of your haunt. Want an iron cemetery gate? Need inspiration for an entrance to your pirate theme? You can create any gateway that you put your mind to. But, if you need some inspiration, you can always check out this board on Pinterest.
Skeletons are another fun way to get creative with your Halloween decor. You can purchase plastic skeletons almost anywhere around Halloween. Once you have a few skeletons, you can start getting creative with their placement. Some people make it look like the skeletons are climbing their house, running, sitting on a bench, and anything that you put your mind to. We’ve got a collection of ideas for you on Pinterest.
Carving pumpkins is a classic Halloween activity. You may already be doing this, but you can always take jack-o-lanterns a step further. Take a look at these scary pumpkin designs on Pinterest.
