It’s only September, but that doesn’t mean that it’s too early to start planning for Halloween so you can have the spookiest home in your neighborhood! In fact, it’s never too early to start planning for Halloween. No one wants to be the boring house on the street. Similarly, no one wants to be waiting in long lines at Halloween stores on October 30th.
Halloween DIY Ideas
It’s time to start decorating the inside and outside of your home and getting ready to scare everyone in your neighborhood.
Here are some of the best Halloween items available that can help your home become the coolest and scariest on the block this October:
- Table Top Ghost
- Decorative Pumpkins
- Trick-or-Treat Placemats
- Mini Decorative Skulls
- Boo Banner
- Candy Corn Lane Pom Pom Tree
- Halloween Gnome
- Jack-O’-Lantern Placemats
- Hocus Pocus Pillow
As far as the front of your home is considered, there are all kinds of things you can do to get your home Halloween-ready. But you should spend extra time improving your home’s front door. Stainless steel 304 is the number one common grade of steel.
Specifically, in the entry door market, steel remains the dominant material with a market share over 50% — this Halloween, however, you should get a little more creative with your entry door’s appearance. If you want to focus on spookifying your home’s entry door!
Here are some great Halloween-related entrance door projects to consider over the next few weeks:
- Lighted Spooky Spidey Wreath — This project is relatively easy, but you might want to do most of it without the kids around. Once the wreath is set up with lights, your children can start decorating it with spooky Halloween items.
- All you need is a 16-foot grapevine wreath from your local craft store, a 10-inch string of mini LED lights, three AA batteries, wiring, and any decorations you and your family want to set up. Obviously, you’ll need at least one scary black spider. But what’s scarier than one scary black spider? A bunch of scary black spiders!
I love this Spidey Wreath! If you don’t have the time to make one yourself you can find some awesome spooky spidey wreaths on Etsy like the one below!
- Haunted Front Door House — If you truly want to win Halloween this year, it’s time to take your front door setup to the next level. A haunted front porch is a perfect way to get into the spirit and impress trick-or-treaters and people who pass by throughout September and October.
- Find some creepy finger tombstones, a couple of scary Jack-in-the-boxes, and if you really want to have a terrifying setup; create a lounging zombie chair and jump out every time a trick-or-treater walks up to the porch.
- Front Door Bat Invasion — Similar to the spider’s web on your front door, you can bring a colony of spooky bats right to your front step in just a few hours — and for as little as $20. Keep in mind, any cutting with an X-Acto knife needs to be done by an adult, but the kids can cut out some bats with scissors and help decorate the rest of the door.
- You’ll need a large sheet of lightweight black poster board, an X-acto utility knife, cardboard, scratch paper, a branch of fake leaves, pencil, scissors, and painter’s tape. Start by drawing a detailed bat pattern on a piece of scratch paper and start tracing it out on the cardboard. As soon as you have your bats out, you’re ready to decorate your front door and get spooked!
- Vintage Light Fixture Halloween Moon – If you have an old light around you can also make this spooky witch figure flying across the moon. I love the creativity of it, and it’s sure to scare up some Halloween fun on your front porch too! You can find a full list of instructions over at Sadie Seasongoods.
So, if you want to have the spookiest home in your neighborhood for Halloween, get started today and create some of your own spooky and creepy projects!
