Halloween may be the last day of the month, but the entirety of October is often associated with the occasion. Make it a memorable October with these easy tips that will subtly transform the exterior of your home.
Add an autumnal wreath
You don’t have to wait until Christmas to upgrade the look of your front door with a wreath. An autumnal wreath is one way of getting your home ready for the spooky season.
Keep it classy with colourful leaves, berries and pinecones, or go for ghosts, spiders and witches on your wreath. Whether you purchase a wreath making kit or opt for something luxury in store, your front door will have instant kerb-appeal.
Create a spooky entrance
Shockingly, visiting a pumpkin patch isn’t just for the ‘gram. Be sure to pick up a few pumpkins and turn them into masterpieces to be placed around your door.
Carve the classic triangle eyes and zig-zag smiles or make use of the extensive stencils you can find online. Just remember to finish them off by adding LED tea lights inside.
It’s important to remember that even though pumpkins can last 8-12 weeks after picking, the clock starts ticking once carved. It is recommended to carve pumpkins a week or two before the big night so they stay looking fresh.
Encourage your guests to wipe their feet by adding a Halloween doormat at your entrance. There are multiple designs that are perfect for welcoming guests around the 31st of October.
Hang lights from windows
Adding coloured lights around your windows can completely alter the mood of your house. Go for orange or red for the ultimate glow.
Why not also add fairy lights to mason jars on window sills? That way you can turn off the main lights and enjoy your scary movie marathon so much more.
