4 Ways to Win Halloween

It’s that spooky time of year again. Time to go in the basement, grab your box of decorations, and dust off the cobwebs (TIP: save cobwebs for later).

Here are four scary-easy Halloween decorations for your dream nightmare home.

1. GOTHIC FLORA

“I see a fake plant and I want to paint it black.” – Mick Jagger in October, probably.

All you need is some faux foliage and a bottle of black-as-night spray paint, and voila!
You’ve got yourself a centerpiece fit for an Addams Family dinner party.
 

2. PORTRAITS OF THAT SPECTRAL SOMEONE

If Scooby-Doo taught us one thing, it’s that every eerie mansion needs a few sinister portraits.

Replace family photos on the mantle or in the hall with ominous black and white photographs and dastardly 19th century portrait prints.

WARNING: if their eyes start following you around, get out.
 

3. REMEMBER THOSE COBWEBS YOU SAVED?

Well, maybe using real cobwebs isn’t the best idea.

But fake cobwebs are a great way to turn a haunted house into a haunted home.

Add them to pieces you already own, like mirrors and framed posters, to turn everyday objects into great Halloween décor.
 

4. NO-KNIFE PUMPKINS

Maybe the poltergeist stole all your cutlery, or maybe your kids are too young to trust with carving their own pumpkins.

No sweat. There are plenty of knifeless ways to decorate pumpkins.

For a real classic jack-o-lantern look, cut black construction paper into different eye, nose, and mouth shapes that your kids can mix and match to create their own grinning gourd.

No matter how you decorate your home this Halloween, make sure you and your family have fun.

And if you keep hearing chains rattling in the attic, we’ve got some great, ghost-free neighborhoods you might want to check out.

    Deborah and Brian Blackney

  • Once I got settled in, I knew I was exactly where I belong. Without Bielinski’s knowledge and communication, I would still be questioning whether I should build at all. Thanks to the entire team that made this all possible.
