Halloween Is Coming? 8 Simple Ideas for Decorating Your Home for Halloween
Whether it's a costume party or watching a horror movie, a festive dinner or a quiet evening with your favorite treats, no matter how you decide to spend Halloween this year, you can't achieve the right atmosphere without decorating your home. Here are some ideas for Halloween room decorations that don't require a lot of money, effort, or time.
On the night when October turns to November comes the scariest and at the same time one of the funniest holidays of the year, Halloween. According to ancient Celtic legend, on this night the gates between the two worlds - the living and the dead - open, the souls of the deceased enter the world of the living. Since those very times, jack-o'-lantern (a pumpkin with eyes, mouth and a candle inside), spooky witch and vampire costumes, bats, spiders, various divinations and games have become inseparable symbols of Halloween.
You can make this main holiday symbol with your own hands, or you can buy it in a specialized store. If you are ready to make everything yourself, then choose a fruit of bright orange color, and also prepare a sharp thin knife and a small candle.The whole process will not take too much time:
- Cut a square around the tail - this will be the lid of our lantern;
- Carefully remove all the pulp;- Draw the outlines of the mouth and eyes with a marker or use a special stencil;
- cut out a muzzle;- Remove traces of the stencil or marker with a napkin;
- put a candle inside.
That's all, our jack-o'-lantern is done.
A glowing spider web is a great idea for Halloween living room décor. Add to it the silhouettes of bats and spiders cut out of thick black paper, stretch under the ceiling or in the yard - and hardly anyone can remain indifferent. And decorating the usual pendants of these Halloween symbols of the walls in the room won’t be much trouble. You can also "scatter" around the house a few rubber figures of these insects or even attach them with double-sided tape to different vertical surfaces.
Wrap candies in white paper, draw bloodshot bulging eyes on them and pile them in a special vase. The candy will look even scarier in a dark container. For this purpose, it is possible to sacrifice one pot for roasts by painting it in black. You can decorate a couple of pillows with these eyes by simply cutting them out of paper and attaching them to the pillow with double-sided tape and wrapping a few strips of bandage over it. A mummy's head would be a great idea for a Halloween party.
Take ping-pong balls, put a piece of white cloth on each one, and tie it with plain white thread - voila, ghost is ready. You can also use napkins, but they may tear while tying. Such figures can be placed around the apartment separately, or you can join them in a garland.
