Halloween Decorating Ideas For This Year

There’s that one time of the year when your home’s décor can be out of the ordinary, strange and even ghastly.

It’s the time of the year when you’d actually get compliments for having such a disturbing atmosphere inside your house.

And it’s the only time of the year when your mom or mother-in-law won’t be scrutinizing over the neatness of your home or mind the overwhelming presence of spider webs, mice and cockroaches (fake ones of course).

Halloween Pumpkin Decorating Ideas

One thing that is readily available during fall and especially around Halloween would be pumpkins, lots and lots of pumpkins.

In a season where the demand for Jack-o-lanterns and pumpkin treats is at its all time high, you can bet that creating a pumpkin themed Halloween is as easy as pie; pumpkin pie.

So drive over to your nearest pumpkin patch or farmer’s market and get a whole bunch of pumpkins. Carve them, paint them, light them up and display them all over your house, inside and out.

You’ll have your very own pumpkin patch themed Halloween.

Use Amazing Halloween Ghost Decorations

Halloween is no doubt one of the creepiest nights of the year when anything peculiar and eerie can show up at your doorstep, and we’re not just talking about trick-or-treating kids in costumes.

A ghost theme would definitely suit your home during this time. It fits in real nicely with the atmosphere of the festivities and like they say, white goes with anything especially the translucent type of white.

Tie up some white gauze in the shape of ghosts and hang them all around your home, buy ghost decorations that light up, make sounds or move around, cover everything in white sheets with black felt cut out in the shape of two eyes.

There’s just so many way you can turn your living quarters into a haunted ghostly mansion. Just think white and fright.

Skeleton Decorating Ideas for Halloween

There’s nothing more familiar than the sound of clattering bones on Halloween.

It’s right up there with a howling of a werewolf, the “boo” of a ghost and the cackle of a witch. Decorate your home with a “no bones about it” Halloween theme.

All it takes is a couple of bones including skulls, femurs, ribs and the like. And if you can get an entire skeleton then even better. Scatter the bones across your lawn, put them in piles inside your house, hang skeletons on trees or in doorways.

Just make sure your dog knows that these bones are off limits and should not be chewed on or buried in the backyard.

Although bones sticking out from the ground could also be a neat decorating idea.

Create A Witches Den This Year!

What can we say about witches? They find multiple ways to use a broom, they’re surrounded by black cats, they always have something cooking in the cauldron, they have the creepiest laugh you’ll ever hear and finally, they have the most interesting dens you’ll ever see.

It’s filled with all sorts of strangely curious items like potions, spell books, a jar of bat wings and frog eyeballs, skulls, stuffed animals (and not the plush cuddly kinds either), and of course a closet filled with brooms.

Place items like these all around your home and you can have your very own witches den.
