A lot of people enjoy going to Halloween parties. During this time of the year, we get to dress up and wear weird costumes that we do not usually wear everyday. Halloween decorations such as spider webs, tombstones, ghoulish figures, pumpkins and bats are scattered inside and outside our houses, so as to create a really spooky atmosphere.
If you are thinking of transforming your house into a haunted house this October 31st, you might want to know some tips on how to successfully do the job. Everything should not be too expensive. As long as you know how and where to look for resources and materials, your pockets would remain safe and secure.
Let me start by suggesting a few Halloween outdoor decorations. If you have a lawn or a front yard, it is best to put up at least a couple of tombstones to welcome your guests. You could use one of those big boxes you can get from grocery stores or used cardboard pieces from your children’s school projects the previous years. You could then use crayons or pens to write the epitaph and make up the deceased’s personal information.
Next, place big and small pumpkins all over your porch and yard. Using spray paint, you could draw eyes and creepy mouths on the pumpkins. You could also draw other styles of intricate patterns. If you have carved pumpkins available, you could light up a candle and put it inside to give off a spooky-looking light. Get some pieces of old cloth and paper bags. You could create scarecrows, ghost figures and other supernatural creatures from these materials. You could look for a pattern online so that you would have a guide on how to cut and assemble these props. When you are done, you could hand them from the ceiling or the tree branches outside.
Finally, do not forget the lights. You could use your old Christmas lights to illuminate your porch and yard. You might have stored them in the attic or in the basement, so start looking for them now. These lights would be best kept in the bushes to make it appear like they are the glaring red eyes of the devil or some witch looking for her next victim. Halloween outdoor decorations play a big role in making your Halloween a scary and frightening one. Do not forget to learn from these tips and use them for your next Halloween plans!
