1. Making Atmosphere for Little Wizards
Well, in case you have children at home, you are probably wondering how to decorate the house without turning it into a set for horror movies and keep everything in order. Thus, start with the children’s room, where you can create a cozy and functional study corner in the house, while using elements of Halloween decor. For example, you can place a study table in the background of the spider’s web, surround it with candles in the form of pumpkins, and add books on the table with the image of witches and witch potions.
Tables that are height adjustable can be turned into tents and shelters for children by stretching the fabric and pulling the table higher. The main thing is that the table should be solid, so that the structure can hold up. Manufacturers of Parasol furniture company produced in Dubai are famous for quality children’s furniture, whose products ensure safety. Besides, you can find a study chair in their collection and decorate it with a white sheet, drawing black eyes on it to make it seem that the chair has turned into a ghost. A simple, but spectacular idea that is sure to delight the children and provide a confidence of safety to their parents.
2. Taking Advantage of the Pumpkin
Certainly, the first thing that comes to mind when we think of decorating the house for Halloween is pumpkins! Lots of pumpkins! So, if you live in an apartment, you can use them as candle holders on your kitchen or bedroom windows. Cut out scary faces, paint them in different colors or decorate using elements of fabric and metal. For those of you who have a house, one of the options can be arranging decoration in the yard. Colored pumpkins in the company of autumn leaves can be nicely placed on the bench near the front door.
3. Lighting Up a Space
Here are some more ideas on how you can decorate your kitchen, turn dark wine bottles into candle holders. Light them a little beforehand so that the wax melts nicely. The candles can be given a more gothic look by painting them black or wrapping them with ribbons and black lace. Do not throw away used glass jars of sauces and jams as well, cover them inside with orange acrylic paint and put small candles inside.
4. From Ordinary Furnishings to the Set of a Ghostbusters Movie
In order not to damage the furniture and keep its appearance, you can take advantage of the two things at once and wrap it with cobwebs, that is, gauze or white sheets, turning the house into a graveyard of ghosts. Choose a fireplace, musical instrument, or simply a shelf, closet, or chest of drawers and turn them into a real art object. Hang masks, spiders, and witches for an unusual composition and don’t forget to decorate the ceiling by hanging bats, birds, and cobwebs.
5. Creating Decorations for the Bathroom
The bathroom is no exception and also can be decorated and add a bit of horror by painting the shower curtain with drops of red paint to mimic blood. It’s easy to write a horrifying message to your loved ones on mirrors with red lipstick or stencil them in the shape of bats. On the mat in the bathroom, attach small bundles cut out of cardboard and the mount for toilet paper replaced with a skeleton bone.
The main point is to keep in mind that Halloween is not only a spooky holiday, but also a good reason to be creative, meet with friends, and sit with your family around a big table. Enjoy the process and have fun!
