If you fear you could miss out on decorating this year, don’t fret. We have you covered on some last-minute Halloween ideas so your house will look properly spooky. To get started, here’s a list of tips on creating last-minute Halloween decorations.
Get Creative with Window Clings
Y’all’s doors and windows are prime areas for spooks. For me, I’d pick the windows. To make it appear spooky, consider window clings that look like bloody handprints. They’re sure to scare some guests as they come up to the door to retrieve candy or attend a Halloween party.
Get in the Festive Mood With Outdoor Decorations
Make your backyard spectacularly spooky with outdoor decorations For example, if you want to make a spider, grab some garbage bags and fill them with paper or leaves to form the body. Then, use the remaining garbage bags as legs. The result is sure to spook many trick-or-treaters as they walk up to your home, y’all.
Use the Landscape
If you want to have even more fun this Halloween, consider decorating your yard with everyday household items instead of using inflatables. You can decorate odd things to make them appear spooky; they’re especially perfect if you want to make a last-minute haunted graveyard. You could also put up signs warning trick-or-treaters to enter if they dare.
Decorate With Toilet Paper Pumpkins
If you want something easy to complete, make toilet paper pumpkins. Everyone in the family will have a lot of fun making them. All you need is fabric and basic supplies. Once you’ve acquired the things you need, simply wrap the fabric around the toilet rolls and decorate the top with fake leaves and wood sticks. There’s not much you need to do, and, let me tell you something great—y’all can use these decorations for the rest of autumn, too.
Paint in Nature
If you’re short on time, consider painting things you find in nature, such as pine cones and twigs, to resemble your favorite Halloween candy. You could paint the pinecones to look like candy corn or paint twigs to resemble wands. All you’ll need is some simple paint and brushes, and the items you’re going to paint. After that, the only limit is your imagination, y’all.
