Halloween is around the corner, here are 5 tips to get your home ready for the trick or treaters!
1. (Grave)Yard Work
Setting a first impression is key with trick or treaters. Having spooky yard decorations is a great way to draw attention from the neighborhood and make your house THE house to ring. Planning out and setting up the decorations can also be a great way to spend time with the family. Along with decorating the yard, be sure to maintain great lawn care so the first impression is excellent all around.
Carving pumpkins is a very fun fall family activity. There are plenty of creative ways to carve and cut your pumpkin. If carving isn’t your thing, or have young kids, try painting the pumpkin. Painting instead of carving brings color to the pumpkin decorating world and will make the pumpkin last longer compared to carving.
3. Find Value Decorations
Dollar stores keep seasonal decorations stocked and are often overlooked. Some inexpensive ways to theme your house are spider webs, decorative balloons, homemade pinatas. You can even use old cans to make lanterns to light your porch.
4. Window decorations
Window decorations are a great way to decorate the entire house and doing so with minimal effort. With plenty of pictures and designs to fit any theme, the options are endless.
Jack-o-lanterns are a staple Halloween decoration. Like previously stated, carving pumpkins are a great activity and decoration which can help lighten up your front yard and porch. Halloween themed lights are a great way to show off your decorated yard while also keeping the spooky theme. These can be a simple as rope lighting and can even be full projecting light fixtures in the yard. Once again, the options are nearly endless and are only limited by how creative and intricate you are willing to take it.
