You need to choose what you are looking for this Halloween season.  Decide what kind of theme you want and stick with it. Do you want to make it kid friendly? (In that case, you can bypass dangly any severed limbs or propping up any skeletons.)  If so, decorations that are more towards "cute" or playful are where you want to go. Do you want creepy? Really creepy? This is your free pass to do just that! Into decorating your home each season but don't like Halloween? We have some options for you too.  In this blog, we are going to look at 3 key areas to jump-start your home staging for the season; Front Door, Lights, Walls.

Front Door

Kid Friendly

You can't go wrong the good-ole reliable Jack-o-lantern. There are endless ideas for carving a pumpkin that go way behind two eyes, a nose and a crooked smile. Carving a pumpkin does require some basic tips from the get-go that you want to pay attention to. Check out this video before you start hacking away at that giant pumpkin you just bought!

Autumn Themed

Some people pass on the idea of limiting themselves to Halloween instead choosing to have an Autumn theme. The upside here is not having to swap out decorations until the holidays! Check out this great and simple DIY video where you can see how to make a Fall wreath on the cheap.Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet enim. Etiam ullamcorper. Suspendisse a pellentesque dui, non felis. Maecenas malesuada elit lectus felis, malesuada ultricies. Curabitur et ligula. Ut molestie a, ultricies porta urna.

Creep Factor 

Returning to the Jack-o-Lantern here, we see how the pro's do-it. Watch Ray Villafane show you the basics on how to make your Pumpkin as scary as you want it to be with one simple approach.


Lights

Kid Friendly

This is something that could result in some patience for your kids. Step by step, one at a time is important otherwise you may find you spider web trapping "you" instead of being proudly displayed on the wall. This one may take more time but it is worth it! Pro tip, feel free to have your little ones add different bugs, faces, characters, or whatever to the theme it is.

Autumn  Themed

There is a TON of DIY videos related to decorating to walls! Mirrors are a good spot to decorate because your eyes naturally focus on something that is different from the wall itself. Also, we wanted to stick to the budget friendly option for you here. (Mirrors are a Dollar Tree staple!) Another great part of using a mirror, is that you can zone in on only decorating one thing in every room. (Good luck decorating your entire wall in each room !)

Creep Factor

LSaving the easiest for last! This one consists of just buying the "web", cutting it up and setting it up on the walls that you feel would be best. (These "webs" have tons of versatility so feel free to put them outside as well!) If you want to take it to the next level here, make sure to add some realistic looking spiders. (Combining these with the lanterns shown above will definitely give your spider webs that uneasy feeling that you are looking for!)

On the Walls
