DIY Halloween Decor

Make Your Room Effortlessly Eerie

If you're running low on time or low on budget or time for your Halloween decorations, you can try out a few DIY decorating tricks. Start by using some white sheets to cover all existing furniture - including couches, chairs, tables, etc. - to create an abandoned, ghostly feel that pays homage to old-school haunted houses. Once your furniture is draped with sheets, be sure to fill the room with plenty of lit candles that will fill the room with dim, flickering light. You can also fill candlesticks, vases, and other containers with twigs, willow branches, and other earthy objects to create an unsettling atmosphere.

Spider Webs

Spider Webs Galore

You can turn your lovely home into a dreadful, haunted mansion with a little help from some outdoor decorations. One of our favorite Halloween decorations has to be the traditional spiderwebs that can be used to give shelves and banisters an eerie feeling. Now, you can take this eerie feeling outside with a giant version of this decor that is appropriately named Mega Spider Web. You can even add in a giant spider that can perch on your lawn or roof, to really bring out your neighbor's acrophobia. Or you can add a unique flair with this cocoon corpse and have it hang down from the mega spider web.

Scary Sound Effects
