You may not be celebrating Halloween this year exactly how you planned but that doesn’t mean that no fun can be had at home. Decorating your home exterior for the spooky season is a great activity for all ages, and is ensured to put you into the festive mood.
If you’re expecting socially distanced trick or treaters this year Halloween-ifying your home entrance gives a clear indication that you have treats (or tricks) at the ready. Here are our top 5 Halloween decorating tips and DIYs for your home this year.
They’re not just for Christmas. Halloween wreaths are an ornamental way to decorate for your entrance door, while symbolising that visitors are welcome there. You can easily DIY your own spooky wreath like this sickly Halloween candy wreath or eerie spiderweb embroidery hoop wreath. Traditional Christmas wreaths use evergreen to symbolise perseverance through the harsh forces of winter. So it totally makes sense to hang wreaths in colder months in general – which definitely includes late October. Keep in with this theme by displaying a more elegant autumnal leaf wreath which can be made inexpensively from fallen foliage.
Windows make an eerie decorating spot for Halloween. They’re the perfect place to showcase your frightening decor and creep out your neighbours. Display faux cobwebs, lights or get nifty with budget-friendly homemade shadow silhouettes and bloody handprints. Level up your decorating skills by utilising these decorations for doors fit with glazing. Making a lasting first impression on any ghoulish guest.
Get crafty with looming levitating decor, perfect for hanging on a porch or patio. Simply string-up DIY paper bats 0r cobwebs, made similarly to Christmas paper snowflakes. Or enter a whole new realm with these creative hanging ghosts made from just a tennis ball and cloth. Lighten up with string LEDs. Found in all forms of spooky contractions. From skulls and eyeballs to pumpkins and ghosts. Too scary? Keep it classy with warm stars such as these witchy string lights from amazon, perfect for brightening up a dark Hallows Eve.
It’s completely understandable if you don’t want numerous people at your door during these unprecedented times. leaving out a bowl of treats on your doorstep is the easiest way to share the love while keeping you and your neighbours safe.
