Brainstorming innovative, yet fun, ways to decorate one’s home for Halloween sometimes proves difficult. However, this fun Halloween decorating idea is festive and fun to create. A haunted house in one’s home is a sure way to enjoy the holiday in a scary, spooky way!
How To Make Your Home A Haunted House
Your haunted house should have your friends and family wondering whether they should go inside or run out the back door! One of the biggest parts of feeling scared is dim lighting or even strobe lights. Those walking through the house can use flashlights. A fog machine also adds to the creepy feel. Draping sheets across white walls makes it darker and more dreary.
Prop Ideas For Your Haunted House
When sectioning rooms off, think of creative ways to scare people when they least expect it. Hang black thread on a doorway to give the feel of cobwebs and spiders. Scatter skeletons and bones throughout the house. A string of bats in one room is frightening, and even more scary is the sound of bats in the background! One room can be a mini graveyard in the house. Use styrofoam to cut out tombstones placing scary, yet funny epitaphs among them. Perhaps place a pile of dirt on a sheet scattered with leaves, arrange for a volunteer to pop out of the buried tomb. Nearly anything, whether body parts, rats or witches can be incorporated into this decorating idea.
