Nobody will dare trespass your home with this creepy door decor! Depending on how large you wish to make your wreath, gather 50 to 70 white ping pong balls and paste googly eyes on each ball. Then, cobble the balls together in a circular frame and hang the final product around your door’s peep-hole, letting all passerby know that you’re watching them.
2. Ceiling of Floating Candles

Bring a touch of Harry Potter magic into your home with this enchanted ceiling of floating candles. This homeowner created this look by first painting a blue blanket with a starry night sky scene and sticking this onto the ceiling. She then hung electronic flickering candles onto rows of fine, transparent fishing lines, to give the candles an eerie yet beautiful floating effect.
3. I Spy A Pair of Evil Eyes

For a special night decoration, cut out evil-shaped eyes (try triangular and crescent shapes) in toilet paper rolls. Then, slide glow sticks into the paper rolls to light them up in fluorescent colors. Place these creepy eyes in your plants or in the backyard, giving people goosebumps.
4. Invasion of the Bats

Make your interior walls spring to life with this 3D mural featuring a flock of bats. Use black cardboard paper to make bat shapes with this template, and have them fly across your room. Try making the bats a range of sizes and wrap them around wall corners from small to large to create a more dramatic, more spooky effect.

Ideal for hosting a Halloween-themed party, these fake vampire fangs are perfect for holding a red napkin in place on a dinner plate. Pair this with a glass of red wine to complete the theme. To mix up your dinner table decor, place a different type of fake teeth for each person’s placemat, such as a pair of golden pirate teeth or a set of rotten witch’s teeth.
6. Blood-Stained Towel

Terrify all who enter your bathroom with this clever Halloween hack. Select a white hand towel, dip your hands in red paint and print your blood-stained hands on the towel. Wipe strokes and splotches of paint on your mirror for an extra bloody effect.

Make the best of three basic materials in your home: a black trash bag, scissors and tape. Create bold spider webs from the bag and hang them up against your window. The mosaic-like effect these spiderwebs’ shadows have on the floor when the sunlight filters through is frightfully fantastic.
8. Creepy Bites
Finally, to celebrate this spooky festive season with your family in style, dress up your food as you would your home. Little ones will love this lunch combination of mummy juice boxes and jack o’ lantern burgers. Other food ideas to add to your Halloween menu include peanut fingers, witches hats made from Hershey’s kisses, and spider ice cubes.
