Halloween is just around the corner, and it’s time to prepare your home for the spooky holiday. But what if you’re not into creepy decorations? Well, there are plenty of ways to make your house look like something out of a horror movie without being too terrifying. Here are some Halloween decoration ideas that aren’t too spooky:
Light up your porch
The best way to make your house feel warm and inviting is with lights. A quick, easy way to add some Halloween spirit without going overboard is by using orange lights on your porch or under the windows, white lights in the front yard and black lights on trees near the driveway—they look like they could be spider webs! If you’re feeling more adventurous, try purple light!
Inflatable decorations are a great option if you’re looking for a way to add a little spooky fun to your Halloween decorations without going overboard on the scary ones. Halloween inflatables come in all shapes and sizes: pumpkins, skulls, ghosts and more! And if you want them hanging from trees or on walls, there are plenty of options that won’t require any heavy lifting. As per party supplies named Party City, “Halloween blow ups are perfect for scary (or silly) Halloween fun.”
Dangle ghosts from the ceiling
Hanging ghosts from your ceiling is a great way to add a spooky touch to your home.
You can purchase them in a variety of different sizes and shapes, so you’re sure to find one that complements the mood of your room or house. You can hang them from the ceiling or the sides of your house and they will look great with any theme.
Hang paper bats from the curtains
For this idea, all you need is a small piece of string and some paper bats. Hang the bats from the curtains with the string, making sure that it’s strong enough to hold them up. Although they’re fairly lightweight and easy to hang, if you’re concerned about safety you can use a stronger version of the same color string as what you have in your curtain rods.
You may also want to choose a style based on the curtain rod; for example, if your curtain rods have finials at both ends (things like little balls or leaves on top), then hanging two smaller bats next to each other could allow them to fit on top without being too bulky or heavy looking.
Make your fireplace look haunted
If you’re willing to add a little spooky fun to your fireplace, try adding some fake cobwebs. You can find packages of these at your local arts and craft store. If you want to get fancy, get a few spider webs and hang them around the fireplace.
A faux fire is another great way to make your fireplace look haunted and spooky without using something scary like real flames or an open flame that could burn down your house. There are many different kinds available online and in stores, if you want something really realistic looking (and safe!). And if it’s still too spooky for you, consider placing a skull on top of the fake fire instead of putting something else in there!
