Ideas to decorate the house on Halloween

The popular Witches’ Night is celebrated every year on the night of October 31st, which is tomorrow, and more and more people succumb to filling the house with frightening details to spend a day full of fear.

Cobwebs, pumpkins, the undead… There’s no doubt about that. The scariest night of the year is upon us. In other words, if you are one of those people who can’t wait to decorate the house for Halloween, your time has come. Candles, bats, skeletons and any other terrifying motif have a place among Halloween decorations, a party that, contrary to appearances, has no American origins.

The truth is that the festival has survived to this day and there are few corners of the planet that escape the trick-or-treating spell. Decorating on Halloween is a must if you want to have a truly spooky night, and here you have a full selection of Halloween decorations to suit every crowd.

Hanging decoration

In addition to garlands, there are plenty of Halloween decoration ideas that will turn your walls and ceilings into real eye-catchers. Why not place a giant spider web in the hallway? How about some bats roaming the wall? What if you cheered up with some witch hats floating over your guests?

If you want something more detailed, we suggest the following. Gather the typical autumn leaves in the park and paint them white. When they’re dry, make them ghost eyes and mouths and hang them from the ceiling. You can also use cardboard egg cups painted black to make bats and spiders. Everything to have the best and cheapest homemade Halloween decorations.

Creepy pumpkins

Pumpkins are a classic when it comes to decorating the house on Halloween. So much so that its design has evolved. Everything starts, yes, with the emptying of these vegetables, which on the other hand you can use to prepare some recipes for the occasion. Cut off the top part of the piece as a lid and use a spoon to empty its interior.

When you’re done, draw the scary motif you want on the outside and cut it out. Add some candles and you have your pumpkin ready for Halloween.

An eerie lighting

Decorating your home is more than just decorating the house with vampires and spiders for Halloween. Lighting is a fundamental chapter in creating this spooky Night of the Dead atmosphere. Placing black candles is an idea that is as simple as it is powerful, although not the only one. In addition to garlands of lights or the pumpkin itself, you can create your scary pots of light.

All you need is some recycled glasses. You can paint them or cover them with tissue paper to create Halloween-themed designs like zombies, mummies, or pumpkins. Stick in an LED candle and you’ll let your homemade Halloween decorations shine in their light!
