Windows always come into play in scary movies. In horror movies, a villain first appears by peering into the kitchen window when the main character’s back is turned. In ghost stories, some pale ghost girls is always peering out the attic window in a room that no one has ever been in years. It makes sense to incorporate windows into your Halloween display. People walking past your house are sure to get a shiver when you hang our window accessories in your house. Scroll on through our window decorations and you’re sure to find a few looks to bring your house decorations to a whole new level.
Do you remember what the best Halloween yard decorations in your neighborhood looked like when you were a kid? (Probably, cause these things make an impact on little children.) We are shuffling through a few memories of awesomely decorated houses in our home towns as we type this. While spooky music and web-covered trees are cool, nothing makes an oversized impression as well as inflatables do! This inflatable carriage brings to mind classic ghost stories told in front of a fireplace, making it the perfect mix of classic and creepy for your visiting trick-or-treaters.

One such idea for outdoor Halloween decorations is to decorate a large banner. The banner can be the full length of the door, or only a partial piece of the length. Since door decorations can be particularly inviting or scary, if there are little kids in the neighborhood, try to decorate a banner with something cartoon-ish. The banner should also reflect the personalities of those living inside. Fringes can also be added to the banners – whether it’s pom-poms or straw. For a fun twist, candy stickers and funky texts can be added if a drawing is not your speed.

In our homes, we tend to hold on to our empty containers and packaging, so this candy tin is no exception. Having bought the candy last Christmas, the container seemed too nice to part with. With the candy long gone, the tin container now makes a pretty cute and inexpensive pumpkin decoration. And if you love upcycled projects as much as we do, you should check out this round up of perfectly upcycled pumpkin project ideas.
To give your doormat this Halloween update, start by downloading the skull family template. Print out as many faces as you have people in household. Use an X-Acto knife or craft knife to cut out faces, eyes, noses, and mouths. Then, arrange the faces as you want them to appear on your mat, adding cut-out letters if you wish. Attach paper to the doormat with folded-up painter's tape on the back. Then, starting with a little paint at a time, dab paint around the stencil with a foam brush. Continue until the entire mat is covered, and let dry completely before you remove the stencils.
These craft tricks aren't too spooky—most are tame enough for younger ghouls and goblins who would enjoy them throughout a Halloween event. From floral elements to furniture that you can temporarily modify, there are many how-tos to get you in the spooky spirit. Using crafty essentials like hot glue and shears, you can create essentials like cobwebs and other visual effects for tabletops, bookcases, lighting fixtures, and even staircases, which can be transformed into a trick-of-the-eye rodent landscape with a pair of scissors and craft paper in all the right places. If you want to up the scream factor, try making a a modified mirror, which can become hauntingly eerie with just a few additions. While twinkling candlelight casting mysterious shadows is a mainstay on front porches for trick or treaters, you can bring these elements inside too with handmade lanterns that can be made a few days in advance.
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.
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?
