How To Make Your Home Spook Out The Neighbours

How To Make Your Home Spook Out The Neighbours

Can you believe that Halloween is creeping up on us already! Where does the time go?

If that’s given you a bit of a fright and spooked you out, don’t worry. You still have enough time to decorate your home in time for the trick-or-treaters coming.

It wouldn’t be the same without some pumpkins, but there are other blood-curdling ways of making the house look haunting.

Bewitch Your Guests

To really raise an eyebrow and turn heads, put some witch’s shoes outside of your front door with a broomstick standing next to them.

Generate cackles of laughter from people with the addition of a sign that says “free flying lessons” or “potions on sale”, making them think that a witch has taken up residence in your house for Halloween.

These wicked witch-related touches couldn’t be better timed with Hocus Pocus 2 just being released on Disney+, a must-watch on the 31st.

Ghoulish Window Stickers

A cold shiver will travel down the spines of those who see the hair-raising stickers of spiders, skeletons and witches on your windows.

If you’re worried they would be a bit too terrorising for any little ones that come for sweets, visit Amazon and buy some Casper the friendly ghost stickers, which will be less intimidating.

Add Spooktacular Messages To A Light Box

The clocks will be going back just prior to Halloween and it’s getting dark early already. Create a glow in your front window with a light box, on which you can display funny or frightening Halloween-related messages.

It could be a simple “trick or treat” or the more chilling “don’t turn back”. These messages can be changed daily, and then you can put it to use in the run-up to the festive period with a Christmas countdown.
