Halloween at Home Ideas
October 23, 2019 Patrick
Get your home looking spookily good this Halloween. It’s the perfect time to decorate and entertain guests with your Halloween home furniture.
Here are a few easy tricks to make your home a treat.
Fun to carve and easy to display, pumpkins are a necessity. Give yourself time to get these ready and place around your home or front-door for a spooky welcome. White pumpkins, also referred to as ghost pumpkins, are a quickly becoming more popular. Whether you preferred the chic white or the traditional orange, pumpkins are an easy and attractive Halloween home décor ideas.
How to carve a pumpkin:
- Cut off the top and scoop out the insides. (Save this as it can be eaten later)
- Draw a simple outline of the face you’d like to carve. (Or be brave and try freehand it)
- Start carving the pumpkin using a sharp knife. (Careful!) Go for direct straight lines for the best results.
- Pop out the carvings and pop inside a tea light, replacing the top. (Spooky!)
If your home has these already, great! If it doesn't, then abandon the room for a couple of months and make sure there is a steady supply of flies. Alternatively if you can’t wait that long, fake cobwebs are ideal for recreating that spooky vibe. Cover your furniture in some stringy decorations and place a few fake spiders around to give your guests a shock. This is a the perfect way to Halloween at home.
Remember: When cleaning up, check the spiders gently with a long stick. Otherwise you might accidentally make a new eight-legged friend.
Things as scary as spiders:
- Confined spaces
- The Dentist
Warm, colourful and comfortable; everything a skeleton is not, but it definitely is an excellent addition to your Halloween at home. Skeletons are easy to draw and models can be positioned for a scary or comedic purpose. Their character shines through; whether they are peeking through the window, enjoying a dance, or hidden for a scare. Skeletons are a timeless Halloween decoration, perfect for bringing the style of the graveyard into your home.
Facts about your skeleton:
- The longest bone is the femur in your leg. It is stronger than concrete and about as strong as granite. Ounce for ounce, bone is stronger than steel.
- Every bone is broken down and remade, just like skin. You replace all your bones every seven years.
- Almost half the total bones of your skeleton are found in just your hands and feet.
- You are born with over 300 bones which are then grown together. The adult body has 206 bones. (However some people have more than others)
