Halloween is here and even though this year things are a bit different, it’s still a great time to put the pandemic behind us and enjoy a night of mischief and trick or treating.
There are of course a lot of things that make this holiday tick and they change every year. But one thing you cannot afford to ignore is the decor. Halloween decor is designed to set the mood for the night and will create the perfect ambiance for a night of mischief and fun.
In case you’re not sure about the indoor decor this year, we have a few tips here below that should help you out!
Pick Your Poison
There will be a lot to drink during Halloween, including soft drinks for the kids. Instead of serving your average drinks or such, it may be a great idea to consider going for unique Halloween themed drinks. You don’t even need to complicate things here.
Adding a few skeleton or skull labels to the bottles of red wine and cranberry juice is enough to scare anyone.
The Haunted Mirror
Remember the ultimate goal when it comes to Halloween decor is to make your home as scary and creepy as it can be.
Now, a haunted mirror isn’t enough to do that on its own. But if combined into a general scary decor theme, it will add that little bit of authentic haunted house vibe to the entire space.
You can get the look by printing a similar image and adding it to a frame, and see it transform your home into a Halloween special.
The Bat Mantel
Bats and blood often seem like two things that go hand in hand, and in a creepy way.
Bats have often been associated with mystic evil spirits in many cultures and there’s no better way to scare your guests than using a pack of faux bats neatly attached over the fireplace mantel. Make sure the bats are differently sized and matte black in color.
You can even add a drop of red cranberry juice or faux blood to the mixture to create the ultimate Halloween decor.
Spider Web Tablecloths
Just like bats, spiders are also very scary to most people and they just have this creepiness that makes them so perfect for Halloween.
Although there are so many ways to use spiders for your Halloween decor, you may want to consider adding a few spider web themed table cloths as part of your overall indoor pumpkin decor. Some people will argue that spider webs aren’t nearly as scary as the spider themselves, but we all know that as long as there’s a web, there’s a spider.
Besides, you can even touch up this decor idea by adding two or three faux spiders on the tablecloths for nice Halloween table decorations.
If you want to add more blood into your Halloween ensemble but in a subtle and creepy way, then this is the ultimate decor idea for you.
To create the look, light up a red candle and let it drip on top of white candles, producing what seems like a drip of blood. It will surely bring that aura of spookiness into your home.
Get your home ready for holiday guests by resealing the porch. It will make the space shine as if it was brand new, making your home feel much more welcoming!
