Halloween Decor Ideas

Decorating the home for Halloween can be great fun for both adults and kids. Here are our fave picks from Martha Stewart:


PAPER MICE

These creepy, crawly paper mice are not so nice. Stick these unsavory critters on stair risers, baseboards, or any spot where they might give unsuspecting passersby a little jump.



CREEPY SILHOUETTES

As day turns to night, call on candles to cast an eerie glow throughout your home. When fierce silhouettes are propped above them, spectacular shadows dance across the walls.


CLOTHES PEG BATS

Spine-chilling as it sounds, a colony of bats hanging from the highest reaches of your house serve as the perfect welcome for guests -- if you're throwing a Halloween party. You can also clip these clothespin bats onto tree branches or bushes outdoors to greet trick-or-treaters.


BATTY LAMPSHADES


Your visitors will shudder when they spot a bat-lined lampshade as part of your decor. Some of the paper cutouts are suspended from threads, while others are stuck inside the shade.


BALLOON HEADS

Draw simple features onto inflated balloons with permanent marker; choose an assortment of geometric shapes that are easy to create freehand.



CATTY SILHOUETTES

Use double-sided tape to place these cats where guests might least expect to find them -- whether they're ready to jump out of two framed prints or hiding in the window



PRESERVED SPECIMENS

Clear cookie jars can filled with food colouring to achieve the look of formaldehyde. Fill the jars up with lotus plants or even fake limbs and insects. Do note that some fake limbs are filled with cotton so do pick something durable and cheap.
