Regardless of whether or not you plan on having a Halloween Party at your place this year, decorating for Halloween seems to me to be a total must! so here are a few ideas for your Haunted Halloween House this year.
This is my favorite idea for room decor- what says creepy more than an unlived in house? Such an easy thing to do, cover your furniture with white sheets for that creepy ghost house look.
Another look can be the over-lived in. Complete with dusty books, stuffed owls, scientific drawings of rats, ravens and bats and threadbare furnishings and drapes.
Displays of clear jars with snakes, ravens, bats and spiders is always a great way to go.
Stairways, windows and doors
I love this so much, I want it so bad it's not even funny. There's a tutorial on Instructables.com on how to do this from scratch. But I think a simpler way to do it would be to get a werewolf halloween mask- fill it with expanding foam and mount it to a wooden plaque.
After Dracula was written, the fear of Vampires was so strong with the upper class that the fashionable European traveler never left home without one of these- a Vampire Hunting Kit. I plan on making one of these also.
For additional protection, a 'In Case of Zombies' ax may be needed.
And just because you may need an extra hand with all of this work.
And to make sure you don't forget when Halloween is.
