5 Ideas For Eye-Catching Halloween Window Decorations
There are many ways to decorate your home for Halloween. If you want people on the outside to see you’ve made an effort then Halloween window decorations are perfect for doing just that. Here are five ideas to inspire you.
Spiders And Bats
Some of the simplest and most popular decorations come in the form of hanging spiders and bats. These can be made at home using cardboard and/ or pipe cleaners, and hung down the glass using pieces of string. They may be simple, but they help create the atmosphere for anyone passing by and looking at your home.
You can’t have spiders without cobwebs! There are plenty of cobweb decorations available to buy in store, that’ll stretch all across the surface of your windows. If you want to make your own then you can cut shapes out of cardboard or create intricate spiderweb patterns using string. You can also use old cotton balls you may have lying around – just quickly tear them up and add them to your current window display.
Autumn Window Decorations
Some people go with the autumn theme for their Halloween window decorations. This means leaves, dried flowers, and vegetables like pumpkins. One idea is to go foraging and create your own Halloween garlands for the window. Or you could buy false leaves if you want to keep using them again and again, year after year. The beauty of autumn decorations is that you can keep them up for longer even after Halloween is finished.
Some people go as far as to put up Halloween themed curtains at this time of the year. You’ll find all sorts of decorated curtains available to buy in store or online, though if you’re going for an overall spooky theme in the home then you may choose simple gothic velvet to match the rest of your Halloween décor. Although curtains cost more than other Halloween decorations, they’re cost effective if you plan on using them year after year.
Life-Sized Halloween Dummies
If you want to go one step further than everyone else then why not decorate your windows with life-sized Halloween dummies? That could mean a mummy staring out at passersby, a zombie trying to escape from your home, or even the model of a skeleton staring out of your window. These create an excellent display for those outside of your home.
