Halloween is just around the corner, so it's time to decorate your rentals. To create the most fascinating and mysterious decorations, use your imagination and bring pumpkins.
Here are five decor tips to spookify your rental and make it look ready for a Halloween trick-or-treat evening!
1. Spooky scary skeletons (and other creatures)
Create an undead army of decorative skeletons with the help of old cardboard boxes or wrapping paper. Papier-mâché is a great technique and children can enjoy it as well.
With a little creativity, you can create a ferocious wolf, a ghostly sorceress, and so many various magical creatures. Lightning can provide ambient shadows to the scene. Use electric candles for added safety.
2. Create a spine-chilling graveyard
What would a haunted mansion be without an eerie cemetery? DIY a graveyard or purchase props like headstones, coffins, and ghosts from your neighborhood Halloween shop. It depends on how much effort and money you want to put into building your "cemetery." A graveyard scene on your front lawn is enough to make guests uneasy before they even step inside your eerie haunted house.
3. Build a witches' hideout
Setting up a terrifying witch's cauldron is simple, just buy or repurpose a pot and stuff it with dry ice to give the impression that something evil is simmering inside. To enhance the atmosphere - install witchy items like broomsticks or pointed black hats in strategic locations.
4. Place spiderwebs all over your apartment
Spiders and spiderwebs are undoubtedly a well-known Halloween cliché. The simplest way to make spiderwebs is from gauze; the more, the better. Once you've placed it all over it and added some fake hairy spiders, you’ll be all set for Halloween.
5. Pumpkins, pumpkins, and more pumpkins!
At this time of year, there are plenty of pumpkins and they are excellent for both inside and outdoor décor. You will find pumpkins in many shapes and sizes, so use your imagination with the ones you pick. The easiest way to style a pumpkin is to paint or carve it. If you've never carved a pumpkin, you'll be surprised by how enjoyable and easy it is.
Use dark blankets on windows if you want your home to feel mysterious and dark. We recommend using flashing lights and fog to increase the eeriness. To avoid starting a real fire, use battery-operated candles. This is the perfect time to revisit some of your all-time favorite scary movies and crank up the creepiness.
