Halloween decoration ideas
The Jack-O-Lantern is probably the most famous symbol of Halloween. Grotesque faces are carved out of huge pumpkins and lanterns placed inside them for a spooky effect. These pumpkins are placed on the porch and windows to greet or rather, scare away visitors and trick or treaters. Placing Jack-O-Lanterns on old tree trunks also create the required atmosphere.
Monster foot prints can be created to lead visitors up to the house. Various types of lighting machines are available in the market today that can be strategically placed to create an eerie effect. Lighting units which simulate the effects of thunder and lightning can make for awesome Halloween decorations.
Glow in the dark bats and spiders can be hung on the trees as well as within the homes. Body outlines can be drawn on the front walk and scary messages can also be written in scrawly handwriting. Visitors and treaters can read these messages and have fun. Cassettes playing haunting music and spooky noises can be played. Doorbells can be programmed to greet visitors with a spooky voice. You can dress up as skeletons and witches and open the door to the trick or treaters, scaring the living daylights out of them. Long strands of moist, white threads can be hung on the porch to resemble spider webs. Guests will get the creepy, crawly feel when the threads rustle against them. A scarecrow can be kept in the front yard to greet visitors.
