How To Prepare Your Home For Halloween?
Halloween is a special occasion most of us look forward to fondly. The decorations, the scary stories, not to mention the great pumpkin soup we can enjoy weeks afterwards. With Halloween approaching quickly, let us share some of our top tips on how to prepare your home for Halloween this year.
How Can I Decorate My Front And Back Garden For Halloween This Year?
While many people have no problems decorating the inside of their home for Halloween, there are lots of things you can do outside your home too. If you have some space in the front and the back of your home, be sure to use this space to its maximum potential.
One of the ways to make your garden a little scarier is by spreading some fallen leaves across the lawn. If you already have some of these laying around, it does make the job a whole lot easier.
To add some budget-friendly decorations in your garden, look for a pair of old shoes in your home. Then, put them down on the ground and cover them with some old leaves or dirt, this makes it appear as somebody is buried there.
Another popular way to decorate a garden is by using fake tombstones. You can purchase these decorations from Spotlight or make your own. You can also make a homemade scarecrow, fake skulls, and other creepy decorations to add to your garden.
How Do I Transform My Front Porch For Halloween?
The front porch demands extra attention during Halloween, especially if you want to give the trick or treaters a fun experience when they come to ask for candy. There are many affordable ways to transform your front porch, and here are some of our favourite things to do.
Fake spider webs are some of the most basic, but also the easiest ways to transform your front porch for Halloween. You can also hang some fake spiders on the cobwebs, making the entire thing come together. However, always consider the available lighting when you place your cobwebs on the front porch.
Another must for your front porch is a homemade jack-o-lantern. All you need is a big pumpkin and some basic carving skills. To light your jack-o-lantern, you can use some simple candles on the inside. However, you should always consider safety. Some children can wear capes during Halloween, which could catch on fire through a jack-o-lantern. Therefore, it is best to use some artificial lights inside the pumpkin, which do not pose the danger an open flame does.
In addition to the pumpkin and the cobwebs, you can also make your own ghost with a simple white sheet and a beach ball. First, cut some holes into a white sheet. Then attach the beach ball underneath the sheet. Once you have glued the beach ball to the inside of the sheet, you can hang the sheet from your front porch with a little bit of fish line.
When using fish line to attach some of your decorations, always make sure you hang it out of reach of children or any other visitors. After all, you do not want people to trip or get injured by the line.
How Can I Transform The Inside Of My Home For Halloween?
Transforming the inside of your home for Halloween is easy. First, you can cover your furniture with some dark sheets and covers, this immediately makes your rooms appear much darker. You can also add some fake cobwebs on bookcases and cupboards, which also adds to the scary factor.
To transform the rest of your home, you can also add some scary yet affordable decorations on your cupboards and counters. Some fake skulls, bats, or even an ancient looking goblet will do wonders to create a scary environment.
If you have some spare pumpkins laying around, you can make some additional jack-o-lanterns and place them around your home. Once again, you can use candles, but artificial lights tend to be safer. You can also purchase premade jack-o-lanterns, which are made from a plastic material. The benefit of buying these is that you can use them for the next couple of years. Simply store them away until next Halloween comes around.
