Halloween is a yearly celebration observed in a number of countries on 31 October, the eve of the Western Christian feast of All Hallows’ Day. Halloween is a fun holiday that brings out kid in everyone. It’s perfect day to decorate home with fun and scary Halloween props and decorations. This occasion brings a decorating season and provides an opportunity to show off holiday spirit by displaying Spooky Halloween decorations.
Halloween decoration is totally incomplete without Spooky Pumpkins. Pumpkins are marvelous way to add colors of fall season to home since they can be used for both Halloween as well as Thanksgiving. Pumpkins carved with frightful faces double the fun of Halloween. They are very versatile and can be carved in number of ways. Place different sized pumpkins in a group on porch or hang from trees, or windows. Put a pumpkin shaped bucket on center table and fill it with Halloween chocolates or other sweet treats.
Your yard can be a graveyard with multiple zombies set up or a picture perfect example of autumn, with colored leaves, friendly scarecrows and a few Jack O’ Lanterns. Jack O’ Lanterns are decorative Halloween lanterns that can be made from pumpkins, squashes, apples, cucumbers, or any other fruit or vegetable. Halloween lanterns are an amazing way to add mystique to rooms.
Create sinister atmosphere by hanging them in yard, backyard or inside home. Tombstones can be made of thick foam that has been spray painted in grey or even made to look like marble. With a set of stencils and permanent markers, you can write up spooky epitaphs. To make zombies, purchase old clothing or go through your storage space. Sew or pin the shirt and pants together. Rub them around in the dirt to get them properly disgusting. Stuff with leaves, upholstery filling, newspapers or any other materials that can be manipulated. Make a head out of cloth and stuffing and use costume wigs for hair. Get creative with the red paint. You can use stakes, poles, chairs and other objects to pose your zombies.
Homemade decorations can cut down on the costs for the festivities. If you are anxious to spook your guests, turn your home into a monument of old and undead. Think vampires, bats, spider webs, spiders, ghosts and ghouls. You can even create your own sound recording to make background noises that will send shivers up the spines of everyone who dares to enter your house of horror. Whether you are having a formal sit-down dinner or plan to serve up food buffet style, a great centerpiece is a necessity. Think squash, pumpkins, dried flowers and candles on the table. In all of your Halloween decorating, make sure to keep safety in mind. Set candles in glass containers and make sure they are not near flammable materials such as costumes, drapes and napkins.
Let your imagination run wild and your Halloween decor theme will not only be fun to create, it will be a big hit with party guests and trick-or-treaters alike.
