How to makeover your house this Halloween

Friendly Ghosts – Line up goblins to invite trick-or-treaters onto your front porch

Cats plus Bats – Dark paper outlines in your window look astonishing. They are super-simple to do.

Creepy Critters – A tiny pumpkin is an ideal size for creating the creepy crawlies.

Treat Tree – Make your children create these small bucket-o’-treats which will be roosted on a spooky dark tree or plant.

Witching Hour – Dangle a column of adorable witch caps covered with felt on your entryway patio.

All Dressed – Set away from the blade and enhance your front porch pumpkins using craft storage things like sparkle, rhinestones, veils, and that’s only the tip of the iceberg.

Pumpkin Caddy – Disregard your treat bowl: Stockpile your candies inside a widely grinning pumpkin.

Watching Eyes – You only need a dark marker, highlighting foam circles, along with some twofold stick tape to transform trees into puzzling yard animals.

Nose Job – It’s an instant nose job. Place your pumpkin sideways and utilize a stem as its nose.

Haunted Mansion – Coat a frightening haunted manor on the pumpkin. Then carve the windows along with a full bright moon in the background. 

Cat Walk – Craft a zoo of felines to line the stoop. Cut the ear into triangles from bright card stock. Strip them to several toothpicks. Make sure you leave enough space at the base of the toothpicks so you can jab them into the pumpkins to set the ears. Paint the background and details of the face and jab the ears upon drying.

Flower Power – Provide pumpkins with hair that has fall blossoms designs or with greens swath.

Bat’s so adorable – Create these adorable little decorations using old socks.

Dangle-O-Lanterns – Make a curve handle of bulky wire or from a cloth hanger. Utilize it to dangle little jack-o-lanterns all along your front door path.

Mummies like candy – Create a spooky sweet dish filling empty mineral water bottles with candy, before covering with cloth or tissue paper, and a pair of googly eyes.

Painted-Pumpkin Lights – Use painted-pumpkin lights along with your doorsteps and driveway.

Decoupage Pumpkins – Carve, paint colour, and decorate the Halloween pumpkins. However, take your creation to another level with few simple decoupages that are easy to make.

Ghost Cozies – Put away the treats, cover the jars, or simply line the counters with ghost cozies. They are pop-ups and scare the hell out.
