With Halloween just around the corner, now’s the perfect time to make a checklist and figure out everything you can do to make this spooky holiday as amazing as it can be. Decor is a huge part of every celebration, so here are 10 terrifying (but creative!) ideas to make your 31st awesome.
This one’s more for the taken people out there, but a creative bedspread can really go a long way in amping up the Halloween spirit! If you’re really a holiday season nerd, Tim Burton pillow cases and a duvet will certainly express that.
Make your decor all-inclusive for the neighbourhood by hanging up some pumpkins to set the mood. Pumpkins have always been a classic Halloween decoration. Carve them up or leave ‘em plain. Either way, it’ll look good strewn along the path and in the trees!
Front Porch First Impressions
As always, first impressions are important. Your front porch is therefore crucial in encompassing what exactly Halloween means to you. Jazz it up with flying bats across your door, or pumpkins and lanterns by your feet. There are endless ways for you to showcase what a fun and creative holiday the 31st can be!
A unique way to really express your Halloween spirit is to create an interesting take on Christmas decorations. As seen in the picture below, wreaths can be utilised for more than one holiday. Make it extra creepy and hang it up on your front door. It’s fast, easy and simple.
Trick ‘o Treat Fun
Arguably, the best part about Halloween is giving out the candy to the neighbourhood kids. Amp up the happiness by DIY-ing an authentic trick o’ treat pot for the children to take their lollies from! You can use a carved pumpkin or a witch’s pot to do the trick. That’s how easy it can be!
Pop down to the dollar store and you can probably find a bunch of fake creepy crawlies to use as decoration around the house. Spiders are perfect for creating fun designs and trails on doors, walls or tables. Freak people out by placing them where it’s least expected!
Fine Dining Setting
If you’re thinking of hosting a Halloween-style dinner, do consider decking the dining room table in Halloween-style decor too! With coloured napkins and black placemats, it’s not hard at all to blow away any thrill-seeking guests.
Halloween Grazing Platter
The fun of any grazing platter is that you can decide exactly what treats and snacks you want to share. On the 31st, make sure to spice things up with lollies and sweets amongst dollar store decorations like the skeleton seen below!
There are so many fun ways to display treats during this ghostly holiday! Make use of the decor at toy stores to make it especially entertaining for the kids. Here’s some advice: witch’s hats and cauldrons are often great things for holding onto your snacks for you!
The fireplace is the perfect part of your home to decorate for the 31st. You could string a banner over the top of it to signify your spooky spirit! Or maybe some printouts of witches and ghouls would do the trick in Halloween-ing your home.
