The spookiest time of the year is nearly here, and though Halloween may be a little different this time around in the wake of lockdowns and in an age of social distancing, that is no excuse for not celebrating the haunted holiday with some spooky Halloween decorations.
Here is our list of the most important Halloween decorations that every home should have.
No Halloween theme is complete without pumpkin carvings.
These are one of our oldest Halloween traditions, and carving them into spooky faces and styles is a lot of fun.
The faces of witches, skeletons, and monsters are common things to carve into your Halloween pumpkins or Jack-o-Lanterns, but pumpkins are so much more versatile and can be used in a lot of different ways to decorate your home for Halloween.
You can turn a pumpkin into a handy drinks cooler, by scooping out its insides, just like for a Jack-o-Lantern, and cutting off the top.
This gives you a big bowl you can fill with ice to chill drinks. And you can still carve spooky details into the outside of the pumpkin.
Be careful not to go all the way through the pumpkin skin when you carve! So that melted ice water doesn’t leak out.
Halloween-themed Window Clings and Stickers
These decals are a great idea, and bring some spooky Halloween fun to one of the most difficult areas in the home to decorate; the windows.
Decorations like these are designed to stick on to your windows and provide some decoration for people both inside and outside of the home.
They can do more than just decorate a window too; you can put them on mirrors, refrigerators, cupboards – just about anywhere.
All you need is a flat and smooth surface.
Their best feature is that they are reusable, so when Halloween is over, you can pack them up and store them for next year’s celebrations.
Glow in The Dark Posters and Party Favors
Using UV lights and decorations that glow in the dark is a great way to set a spooky atmosphere. Try to make your Halloween party stand out from the crowd.
You can paint or dye just about anything to make it glow in the dark. A simple UV or ‘black light’ can keep these aglow all night long. If you want to know more about how bioluminescence works, check out this handy infographic from Glow In The Darkness.
