Halloween is just around the corner, and you might be wondering how to create a spooky atmosphere in your home. Fret not! Here are five easy ideas to transform your house into a haunted mansion, without breaking the bank.
Create an Eerie Entranceway by painting small glass votives with black jack-o-lantern faces and placing flameless tealight candles in them. Decorate your front door with these and give your guests a spine-chilling welcome.
Add some Frightening Florals by planting black calla lilies in flowerpots around your home. These flowers have a gorgeous dark, purply hue that will add a gloomy twist to your decor. Craft a Raven’s Nest Wreath using a twig wreath from your local craft store and placing a faux black bird in the center. This wreath will set the mood for a night of frightful fun.
Create your own Black Cat Pumpkins by painting two pumpkins black, stacking the smaller one on top of the larger one, and adding eyes, a nose, whiskers, and cat ears cut from card stock. These feline pumpkins are sure to spook anyone who crosses their path.
Mummify your Glassware by taping gauze to the bottom of your cups and wrapping it upwards, securing an end piece at the top. This will give your drinks and snacks a mummified look, perfect for a Halloween party.
With these simple ideas, your home will be transformed into a spooktacular place that will attract trick-or-treaters, and maybe even a few ghosts!
