Decorate for Halloween

Halloween is a time for creative and outrageous ideas. As you get your costumes ready and prepare for trick-or-treaters on October 31st, Ence Homes suggests these tips for decorating your Mesquite, NV homes for this fun and exciting holiday.

Line your driveway and walkway with glowing jack-o-lanterns to create a welcoming path to your home. Convert your front yard into a spooky yard by adding a scarecrow prop, bats on trees, a pumpkin patch, graveyard ghosts, witches’ cauldron and tombstones throughout. Create an eerie window scene by adding creepy window silhouettes.

Your doors and doorways are a quick a relatively cheap way to decorate for Halloween. Transform your front door by hanging a witches’ broom and garland or Halloween themed door cover over it. A Halloween wreath or small door decoration are always a nice and creative touch. Another idea is to hang up yellow Caution tape that you can easily put on your doors and have a sign that reads, “Enter at Your Own Risk.” Inside, cover some of your doorways with cobwebs or hang a drape or cloth in the doorway.

Use lighting to enhance the mood at your Mesquite, NV homes. Turn down the lights throughout your home, have them flicker or use a strobe light. Change the bulbs of your outdoor lights to black to produce mystery.

If you’re having a Halloween party, don’t forget the witch’s broom place card holders that are easy to make. They also make a great arts and crafts project for you and your kids. Add Halloween themed favors like Sippy cups, pens, skeletons and stickers around your house. Place play spiders throughout your home, especially in areas your guests would least expect them.

By following these tips your house should be the spookiest in your Mesquite, NV homes neighborhood without costing too much. But remember, Halloween isn’t Halloween without great sound effects so tune your i-Pod to play scary tunes. Have fun and enjoy!
