Spooky Halloween Decorating

Updated on October 1, 2012

Set a Spooky Scene

Do you have a lot of trick or treaters in your neighborhood? Create a spooky scene for them. Think of all the things that make you squeamish. Spiders, bats, scary jack-o-lanterns, ghosts, things that "go bump in the night," to name a few.

Warning signs like, "Enter at your own risk," "Danger," "Go back, before it's too late," will give spooky signs of danger ahead.

Eerie lighting and Halloween sounds will add to the effect.

Examples of Spooky Houses

Hang a scary Dracula from your doorway. Use spider webs, and helium-filled orange and black balloons.

Or how about some scary ghosts to hang from a tree?

When decorating your porch, remember safety first. If any candles are used, keep them off the floor and set them up high, out of reach,  where costumes could catch the flame.

Black paper silhouettes on windows can look creepy. You can find templates on the internet to make cats, bats, witches.
