- Cute Fall Decor
- Spooky Haunted House
- Themed Halloween
Below we will discuss the best ways to accomplish two of these types of Halloween decorations, keep reading for some great tips!
Cute Fall Decor
If the spooky, scary side of Halloween doesn’t appeal to you but you still want to be festive for this time of year than this type of decorating is perfect for you! What you’ll the most of will be some pumpkins form your local pumpkin patch. Try to get them in all different shapes, sizes, and colors!
When placing your pumpkins around your porch, try to make one central focal point for your visitors to be drawn to. You can add a rustic looking scarecrow here or a fun rusted jack-o’-lantern to finish off this central piece. To pull everything together, fill in any gaps between the pumpkin landscape with some fall colored flowers, or stalks of corn, and you are good to go!
Spooky Haunted House
If you love to be scared and love scaring other people, then this Halloween decor theme will be perfect for you!
First, you’ll need spiderwebs and lots of them. You can drape the webs all over any shrubbery you have in your front yard, over the entryway to your home or your front porch. If you’re feeling especially spooky, you can throw some fake spiders of varying size on the webs.
There are also fun ways to use lights in your Halloween decorations. Strobe lights are especially effective in giving your home an eerie feel, but even string lights can add a similar effect! Add some other creepy, crawly props, and your spooky haunted house will be good to go!
Of course, what will really make your home look its best is if it has a good structure with sturdy siding, protective roofing, efficient windows, and well-maintained gutters. Call Fairfield County Exteriors today for all of your home exterior needs! Don’t let your home look scary after Halloween!
