3. Use What You Have Around the House
Decorating for Halloween doesn’t have to be an expense. There are plenty of easy DIY decorations that you can craft. Find some ideas on Pinterest to inspire you. You can create ghosts to hang in the trees around your home, or create a scarecrow out of used clothing to sit on your front porch.
Wanting to add on some extra lights, flame-less candles can be a safe way to make sure that you maintain the ambiance while keeping the fire lit.
4. Give Your Garden a Gruesome Graveyard
With foam gravestones and skeletons, it’s easy to build a fake cemetery right on your lawn. Skewer the tombstones into the ground so they don’t blow over, and cover bones with mounds of dirt or straw to make it look like they’re half-buried, rising from the dead. A fog machine and some creative outdoor lighting can conceal the illusion even better.
You can make a scene like this look really gory, with splatters of fake blood and severed zombie limbs. If you’re into creating haunted houses for adults, this can be the perfect addition to your decorations.
Or, if you’re decorating your front lawn for all the trick-or-treaters (and their parents) to see, you can go with a tamer, but still spooky, set-up, like we’ve done here.
Book with us before the holiday and have some renovations done to welcome your family and loved ones.
