Halloween is just around the corner. Have you thought about decorating your home this year?
It might seem like all of the options for Halloween decorationsÂ are the same year after year: carve a pumpkin, light the luminaries, and set outÂ aÂ bowl of candyÂ for trick-or-treaters. But with just a little paint and creativity in the right places, you can really make your Halloween decorations stand out.
3 Easy TwistsÂ onÂ Traditional Halloween Decorations
LookingÂ to modify your Halloween decorations this year?Â Here are a few simpleÂ twists on your traditional choices.
Who said pumpkins always had to have faces? Light up the night with swirls and stars from your illuminated pumpkins, and let your friends and neighbors admireÂ your uniqueÂ creation.
You can carveÂ your pumpkinÂ with as simple or intricate designs as you want. Itâ€™s all up to you.
Make Mason Jar Monsters
Turn your ordinary glass jars into simple yet spooky decorationsÂ with just a little bit of paint and cloth. You can paint a Mason jar orange with black eyes and a mouthÂ to look like a jack-oâ€™-lantern, or wrap a jar with gauze and stick on two eyes to look like a mummy.
And let your creations glow in the dark. Light a tea candleÂ or put a battery-operated tea light into your Mason jar monsters and set it on a table or window sill to giveÂ yourÂ room aÂ spooky effect.
Welcome Trick-Or-Treaters with Goody Bags
Turn the typical treat stop atÂ your front door into a fun experience for both you and the trick-or-treaters â€” youâ€™ll have fun decorating individual goody bags, and theyâ€™ll have fun choosing among delicious treats.
Fill a small Ziploc bag with orangeÂ jelly beans and draw on eyes and a mouth to makeÂ pumpkinÂ treat bags, or draw a hairline and eyes on a bag filled with green jelly beans toÂ create Frankensteinâ€™s monster.
Or, if you want a spookier effect, you can make hand-shaped goody bags. Just fill transparent plastic glovesÂ with candy or popcorn.
And if youâ€™re selling your home this month, you donâ€™t have to save these sweet tipsÂ for Halloween night; leave small goody bags for home buyers during a showing. Itâ€™s a great way to treat them.
