What is it about Halloween that transforms ordinary people into seekers of anything dark and unknown?  Cemeteries by night, horror films by day and one of the most popular and oldest Halloween traditions to date - the haunted house!    A haunted house is defined as a building that is the center for supernatural occurrences or paranormal phenomena.  To create these chilling and disturbing effects when designing your own haunted house, you’ll need some amazing animated special effect props that are sure to terrify.  Here at Halloween Express, you’ll find the decorations and props needed that will give your haunted house the illusion that actors, animatronics, sound, lighting and other special effects bring to today’s haunted houses that make them such nightmarish venues.  A good haunted house should terrify, shock and disorient its patrons and then have them laughing at their own fears upon exiting. 
There’s no way we’d want to get caught wandering through this scene when the sun goes down. Now that we think about it, we wouldn’t want to get caught here at high noon either. The tumbling gray tombstone and angry zombies crawling out of the aged ground in this scene is sure to cause shrieks and squeals as people pass by. To create this look, arrange our submerged zombie props and grave stones throughout the yard with hay layered around the base of each piece. You’ll find it easy to make your home into a horror show for the whole neighborhood to enjoy.

It did the job of being spooky in my Halloween graveyard...I have to say it was probably my favorite "ground breaker". The stakes are pretty flimsy, but if you poke a hole first in hard ground, then put the stakes in, they work well enough. I may end up purchasing another one for next year. A word of caution though...it is "weather proof" as long as you don't touch it when it's wet from rain or dew. If you do try to dry it off, the white and black "highlight paint" will rub off. Rinse it off from being in the ground, just don't "wash" it.

Cast a sinister glow over any setting with a cluster of white tapers dripping with "blood" (actually red candle wax). Fill a cup or a small pail with sand, and plant white candles inside so they stand upright. Light a red candle and tip it over the white candles so the wax drips down the tops and sides, being careful not to burn yourself. Let wax cool completely before removing candles from sand.
Is there anything cooler than a fog machine? Okay, there might be cooler things. Anti-gravity chambers. Those mini hotdog machines that constantly rotate at a party. A padded cell with a trampoline for a floor. But a fog machine is definitely at the tippy top of the cool list.

Of course, you can’t have a foggy atmosphere without fog liquid. Unless, of course, you’re going to wait for mother nature to serve up a cloudy ambience. Unfortunately, she rarely serves up fog when you want her to! Make sure you’re prepared to finish off your Halloween scene with a flourish on Halloween night. Bringing in a fog has never been this cool!

From the window to the wall, you can decorate every inch of your home when you shop at Spirit! We offer a wide selection of Halloween window and wall decorations that will have your home crawling with scares. If you want your house to have a classically haunted style, then you can hang up some gothic portraits and a skull fireplace wall cling. Add some eerie music and maybe a pop-up coffin, and all of your guests will start to wonder if they've stumbled back in time and into a vampire's lair! And whether you dress up as the vampire or leave the creepy count a mystery to everyone is completely up to you.
Bare-limbed trees provide the perfect ghostly perch for jack-o'-lanterns, LED candle lanterns, and a flock of faux black crows. Make sure the tree limbs are sturdy enough to support the weight of the items you are hanging and take care not to over-decorate, which can lessen the overall effect. Funkins (Styrofoam pumpkins) are an especially good choice for this project, since they're lightweight and won't rot.

A large wooden plank is usually an obstacle. However, not this Halloween. A DIY Halloween door decoration this is not. This is a porch decoration. Spray paint and stencils is one way to create this spooky welcome sign. Or the letters can be purchased from a woodworking shop or other area and simply nailed on in the right order. These Halloween house decorations are quite a pop from the traditional ones found in stores, and can be painted in colors to reflect the personality of the family. Who wouldn’t want that?

Tempt your Halloween party guests with an array of candies masquerading as botanical or nautical artifacts. To begin, fill large glass jars with sweets, and then mark each jar with a label that sounds convincing—here, the meringues are "jellyfish skeletons"—while being completely made up. If you don't have a cabinet, you can create your own by arranging the jars in wooden cubbies or crates; we painted these a deep slate gray.
There's no faster and more affordable way to transform a room.

The iconic striped socks in this decoration evoke memories of watching The Wizard of Oz with a bowlful of popcorn. Keep the memory of Dorothy and her band of misfit heroes alive with this colorful Halloween door hanger. To create a realistic look, you can stuff each sock with old newspaper, other socks or old T-shirts. Choose two different colors of tulle to create contrast and visual interest. Black and yellow works well, as does black and orange, or white and orange – dark colors provide greater contrast against the striped socks. Use a hot glue gun to hold each piece together.
Do you have a case of arachnophobia? We get it, eight legs, twelve eyes, and sticky webs are enough to give anyone the creeps. But we’d like to think you can grow to love these spiders. They come in different sizes so you can get together a whole family of these fuzzy creatures. While we paired these creatures with scraggly black trees and a chic spiderweb pillow you can mix and match them as you see fit. Use the classic super stretch spiderweb to create the spider’s home or make your own costume web with our fancy-schmancy (but not at all hard to use Webcaster Gun. As we said in the intro, when it comes to Halloween, take your décor as far as you want!
Transform the inside of your home with eerily creepy Halloween accessories to create the perfect scary setting. Mood lighting gets a spooky twist with LED black willow branches or mini votive candles, perfect for a grown-up Halloween party or any other Halloween entertaining. Show of your spooktacular Halloween spirit with a howling wolf rug, metallic skulls and some Dia de los Muertos decor. Toss in a few festive throw pillows for an instant update..
And hey, maybe you want to give your haunted house a more modern touch than the classic vampire mansion. We've got a fun collection of decorations that cling right to your appliances and doorways--how creepy would it be to see a demonic face trying to push through your dishwasher?! Or what about a bloody hand coming out of your toilet bowl? With wall and window decorations ranging from fun and silly to absolutely nightmarish, Spirit is here to help you create a home that's as fun or as scary as you want it to be. Wait, is that a skeleton on the toilet? You better knock before entering!
Sometimes, there's safety in numbers. But this Halloween, there's fear—and fabulousness—in a flock. To summon a swarm of nocturnal nomads, use our downloadable template to cut out your own—stick on removable adhesive dots, bend the wings for extra eeriness, and let 'em loose. To spook-ify your nearby windows, mirrors, or your fridge, use vinyl clings instead of paper cutouts.
Frankenstein saw inspiration in the most grotesque of scavenging—here, we took a note from his book and constructed a bare-bones table decoration. The table legs are legs indeed—store-bought faux bones. To make it, trim the thigh bones: Use saw to cut the legs to 1 inch less than the desired table height (to account for tabletop). Next, stabilize the knees: Take each leg apart at the knee; unscrew the hardware, and remove the kneecap. Connect shin bone to thighbone with one double-threaded screw (3/16-by-3 inches). Lastly, stabilize the ankles: Position one foot so it rests flat on the floor, and generously squeeze epoxy into the hinge that makes the ankle flex. Repeat with the remaining legs. Let it dry and cure overnight at least before moving onto the next step. Attach the legs to the table: Decide where you want the legs, and drill pilot holes through tabletop. Place each leg underneath the pilot hole, then screw to attach. Put putty over the screws, and let it dry. Sand until smooth. Paint the tabletop a skeletal white.
Of course, you can’t have a foggy atmosphere without fog liquid. Unless, of course, you’re going to wait for mother nature to serve up a cloudy ambience. Unfortunately, she rarely serves up fog when you want her to! Make sure you’re prepared to finish off your Halloween scene with a flourish on Halloween night. Bringing in a fog has never been this cool!
Make a big bang with a tumble of pumpkins studded like the starry bands of the Milky Way. Pick a few to be part of the inter- stellar arc, then hollow them out from below and punch holes in them using a drill and two different-size bits. Have fun with the placement of your planets and stars—random patterns have universal appeal. Arrange them with a few uncarved gourds, tuck battery-powered candles inside, and imagine a galaxy far, far away.
When it comes to Halloween ideas, nothing seems to reflect the holiday better than barren trees with crows flying around. A removable tree decal can really help set the mood for the holiday. While decorated pumpkins and porch signs can create the mood, a large tree can really add a helping branch. Crow decals can add life to the tree, and stuffed crows on the banister of the porch can add even more to the life of the tree. If crows aren’t your style, fake leaves can be drawn on paper and added to the tree – which would then make a really cool party game.
Maybe you want to turn your kitchen into a bloody butcher's shop with fake body parts and rusty knives, or your living room could be easily transformed into a dark and dreary dungeon complete with shackles and chains. You could cover your porch in skeletons and zombies, and even hang up a few signs to warn everyone about the scares that lie ahead. You could even take your props to the next level with sounds and lights when you shop our awesome selection of battery-operated, animated Halloween props! No matter how you decide to haunt your home, no haunting could ever be complete without adding the magic touch of Halloween props found at Spirit Halloween!
