Even if you’ve not felt the need to decorate your home for Halloween before, now may be the time to get into the spirit of things. After all, we can all benefit from some light-hearted excitement.
It can be difficult to know where to start when it comes to Halloween decorations. Fortunately, our tips make it simple to inject some much-needed fun into your windows and doors, without creating an overblown display.
Add an autumnal wreath
An autumnal wreath adds an Instagrammable rustic charm to your front door. Perfect for the entire season and guaranteed to make a stand-out first impression, wreaths can be as simple or as extra as you wish.
Choose to forage in your garden for fallen leaves and add some dried fruit to a wired base, or buy an artificial wreath with faux berries and pinecones. While it isn’t strictly spooky, a stylish wreath will set the scene the whole of October.
Create a spooky entrance
Part of the fun of decorating for Halloween is the activities it involves. For example, picking out and carving pumpkins is a great activity to do with family and friends.
Once you have picked out and carved the perfect pumpkins, delight and fright trick-or-treaters with menacing pumpkins placed around your entrance. Remember to add flameless LED candles so they look their best at night-time.
Finishing touches matter so adding a Halloween doormat is key. There are countless options for a bewitching welcome-mat, all complete with ghostly puns.
Add lights to windows
All fairy lights have the ability to transform a space, and that is especially the case when it comes to Halloween lights.
There are many places to find ghosts, skeleton and pumpkin string lights that can frame windows, making them look especially spooky from both the inside and outside.
You can even change the colour of the bulbs in your porch lights to orange or red, creating an abnormal glow that is noticeable from the street.
