Make Your House Look Haunted

 

Your costume is hangin’ in your closet, the bags of candy are ready to go, but your house? Well, that’s another story. Don’t fret, girl, ‘cause we’ve got four wicked ways to make your home look haunted this Halloween.

 

Deadly Doorstep

 

Create faux spider webs using spider webbing or cotton batting from a craft or party store. (Go all out with cobweb shooters and cartridges.) Place a few plastic spiders in the web and tack more to the railing and door using sticky tack. Construct larger than life arachnids from balloons. Use normal-sized balloons for the head and body and skinny (look for “260”) balloons for the legs. Connect the pieces using fishing line, and then attach to railings and suspend from the ceiling. Creepy!

 

Burial Ground

 

Buy rectangles of Styrofoam from a craft store and cut them down into grave-like shapes. Spray paint grey. Write RIP and cryptic epitaphs on all of your stones before shoving them into the ground. Mound up fallen leaves to give it the appearance that the grave has been recently dug and illuminate with an electric lantern or a carved pumpkin. Be careful when putting leaves close to open flame. You don’t wanna set the yard on fire, right?

 

What’s in the window?

 

If your home has two or more stories, turn off the lights upstairs and crack the windows. Behind each window, place a strobe light to create an eerie effect. Snag a CD with creepy music from a party store or download tracks from the Internet. Thing ghostly moans and the occasional scream. Play on repeat to totally freak out your trick-or-treaters.

 

Word of Warning

 

If the path to your front door is illuminated by outdoor lights, paint words of warning onto stakes and drive them into the ground. If not, try carving words into a series of pumpkins. “I’d turn back if I were you” and “Abandon hope all ye who enter here” are classic cautions. “Beware, trespasser,” wouldn’t hurt, either. A splash of fake blood on the walkway should make the message clear.
