Halloween Decorations Tips and Ideas
Halloween party will soon be greeted in various countries in Europe and America two months away. The annual celebration held every October 31 is often accompanied by parties and home decor associated with Halloween. Halloween itself is often associated with things that are creepy.
Halloween decorations are often identified with pumpkins carved in the shape of human faces, candles, chandeliers, dim lights, black decorations, and other objects that can give a creepy impression. Although identical with the spooky impression, but there’s nothing wrong to give a touch that remains stylish and interesting views. All it takes is creativity in combining the various elements and processing the goods that already exist.
In addition, Halloween decorations can also be adapted for party themes or birthday celebrations, so the party will feel different from the concept and theme of an existing birthday party. Here are the steps to decorate the room with a unique style of Halloween style that is not only spooky, but also stylish.
1. Use Existing Items
To get a spooky impression, usually home decoration is made with the concept of antiquity / traditional. However, this does not mean you have to bring traditional nuances to your home. You can still use objects or furniture in your home as one of Halloween decorations. For example, use a glass flower vase. You can use this thing to put a pumpkin that has been carved with a scary facial shape. Complete the creepy impression by placing small candles around the vase and let the lighting in your house, turn off / dimmer.
2. Place A Candy Jar on The Table
Usually in Halloween celebrations there is a group of children who will wear a creepy costume and come to every house to ask for candy or chocolate. So, provide candy jars on the table. These candies you can consume alone, with family or distributed to colleagues / guests who come. To further give the typical Halloween feel, choose a candy made from corn.
3. Give Focus on Desk
Focus on some elements of the house such as a guest table, kitchen island, dining table, with creepy decor. You can add colorful dark bottles, hay, small candles, magic figures, and ghost dolls on the tables. This bottle looks scary because it looks like a bottle of ‘poison’ and potions, as we usually see in horror movies. However, the existence of these bottles not only adds a creepy impression, but also stylish because it looks sparkling when combined with a small candle next to it.
4. Hang the Horrifying Photos
To add a dramatic impression, hang the horror images on the wall. Place a lot of ghost images, magicians, or spooky creatures that are identical to Halloween in the room. You can also place it by hanging it on the ceiling, and it will certainly be more sinister. But if you have a small child at home, make sure that the ghost is shown is a ghost cartoon that still has a funny element even though the true form is still scary. Thus, your child will not be afraid.
5. Use Obsolete Items
Choose furniture, carpets, wallpapers, and all aspects of the room that are tailored to the Halloween concept. For example, choose a sofa and carpet that looks worn, traditional, and old. These obsolete objects are capable of creating a sinister impression on Halloween celebrations. Finally, select wallpaper with skull image, poison bottles, and magician.
6. Make the Room Look Scattered
In order for the atmosphere more sinister, you can make the room appear scattered or messy by making all the furniture and items placed irregularly. Put the tables and chairs irregular. If necessary, add dry daggers or straw on the floor to make the shades feel more intense.
7. Wear Costumes that Fit the Halloween Theme
When all aspects of your room have filled Halloween-style elements, it is time for you and your creative guests to wear Halloween costumes. Usually, people will wear vampire costumes, wizards, zombies, or werewolves. Have a feel of the Halloween spooky feel at your party!
