Wanna surprise trick-or-treaters? Gotta get ready for a
ghoulish gala? There are tons of ways to transform your house from homey to
haunted with stuff you’ve got lying around. Here are a handful of our favorite
Collect empty toilet
paper and paper towel rolls and cut eye-shaped holes in them. Stick them in
bushes and near trees and place a glow stick inside once it gets dark. Boom!
Instant shrubbery spooks.
Grab a few big black
trash bags and use scissors to shred them like streamers, leaving them
connected at one end. Use heavy-duty tape to attach them to your porch’s roof
to create a mini haunted house.
“spider webs” across the path to your front door, forcing kids to walk
through an icky trick before they get their treat.
Plant a plastic mouse
by your front door. Attach is to clear fishing line or string, and sit in
the bushes nearby. When kids approach, pull it across the ground quickly to
make it seem like real mice or rats have taken up residence.
Cut up clear trash
bags or cellophane into smaller, window-sized pieces and drip red paint,
food coloring or nail polish on them. Let dry, then tape to your windows to
make it look like something really grizzly just happened.
Arrange an old pair
of jeans, a stuffed sock and a shoe so that it’s coming out of your
jack-o-lantern’s mouth. Watch out for the killer pumpkin, kiddies!
Pour washable red
paint into a shallow bowl or painter’s tray and take it outside. Peel off
your shoes and socks, dip your feet in, then walk slowly up the driveway and
front path, leaving “bloody” footprints behind you.
