As you get ready to celebrate Halloween, you are probably thinking of decorating your home. But, it doesn’t have to be expensive. There are plenty of ways to decorate your home using items you already have.
The Powell Group has several suggestions that are quick and easy to create using the things you use frequently.
One of the easiest things you can create involves a simple milk container. Just get a one-gallon jug of milk and remove the labels. Next, draw the spooky face and – BOO! You’ve got an instant ghost. You can either get a full bottle of milk or empty it out and paint it. Either way, it’s spooktacular!
If you want to combine Halloween and Christmas decorations, take your milk bottles, empty them out and put holiday lights inside them. They’ll look like ghosts that have entered your house.
For people who don’t have kids, you can also have “bloody” napkins. Throw a little red juice (e.g. tomato or cranberry) on the surface of a napkin, and there you have it. Your friends will be caught by surprise.
Do you have empty egg cartons? Turn them upside-down, paint them black and add some goofy eyes. Before you know it, you’ll have bats around the house.
Lastly, you can also add a Halloween-style wreath to your door. Take your worn out Christmas wreath and recycle it for Halloween. Create ghosts out of your favorite fabric and paste them on along with a black bow. It will simply be “nightmarish.”
