Halloween is one festival where the fun in executing the themes is as much as enjoying the actual festival itself. You can use your imagination to come up with innumerable and innovative Halloween decoration ideas that end up shocking and pleasing your guests at the same time.
You should first measure your home and your yard so as to calculate the number of Halloween props and other accessories that can be fitted within them. Next, you can set up a budget so that you can implement all your decoration ideas without straining your finances.
You need not buy all your decorations since you can easily make quite a few all by yourself or with the help of your family and your children too. The key is to go in for a complete Halloween theme that includes costumes, props, foods, drinks, and sweets so as to create an unforgettable Halloween experience.
As per tradition, you should start out your decorations by making or purchasing several Jack O’Lanterns that can be kept in your yard or even in your home. You can easily make fake pumpkins right at home even by using discarded one gallon milk containers or simply buying hollow plastic pumpkins from stores.
Instead of using candles in these lanterns and risking a fire or serious burns, you can opt for flickering bulbs or LEDs that work on small batteries that can be placed inside the pumpkin itself.
Once you have tackled tradition, you can now let your mind go wild as you create various other items of gory decoration including tombstones, skeletons, and graveyards. You can again opt for plastic ones available in the market or use foam, glue, and paint to create your own horrific creations.
You can also cover your skeletons in tissue paper and paint them red, black, or dark green to put forth an image of a rotting corpse. Skulls, hands, and feet can also be placed in partly open coffins or graves to shock your guests.
Your Halloween decoration ideas should also include huge fake spiders and spider-webs made out of cloth and rubber. You can also buy rubber bats to hang them from ceilings or lower them suddenly on unsuspecting visitors.
If you have decent sewing skills then you can easily make fake spiders, face masks, various costumes, and ghost cloaks out of cloth, and save a little money in the process. You can also involve your children while making these creations although sharp tools should be kept away from them even as you supervise them at all times.
You can also create authentic-looking gloomy passageways by lining a portion of your room with dark wallpaper or black plastic sheets. You can also use black bulbs to complete the theme. A fog machine can be used along with popping skeletons to literally scare your guests out of their skin.
You can either visit stores or even hop over to the internet to browse through a wide range of Halloween decoration ideas that can by bought or made right at home. You should remember to be innovative as well as follow all safety standards so that all your decorations are created without any accident or injury.
Halloween calls for gruesome decorations that can frighten as well as impress any guest at the same time. There are several traditional as well as innovative Halloween decoration ideas that can be pursued to end up with truly grisly decorations that will surely be remembered by all your guests until next Halloween.
