Here are some cool Halloween decorating ideas you can do at home.

  1.    Black lights

Make Halloween a truly terrifying night for the whole family by turning off the lights and having black lights installed in your rooms. If you have little kids at home, you can stick with your Halloween-themed room on your living room alone to avoid causing them nightmares and getting totally freaked out in the process. But if your kids are all teens or young adults, go all out and change all your bulbs into black lights and have a Halloween party hosted in your home. The mysterious and dark theme of your home will definitely spook your friends and relatives when they come over.

  1.    Jack-o-Lantern Table Center Pieces

Check and practice your skills in carving and have your tables decorated with colorful and creative Jack-O-Lanterns. Spend a weekend with the whole family and have each one carve their own Jack-O-Lanterns to be used in the house this coming Halloween. Make it a contest and ask guests or even the members of your family to vote for the best Jack-O-Lantern in the house. You can also make cookies out of the pumpkin fillings that you get from your lanterns.

  1.    Wizard Hat Wreath

Decorate your doors with a unique Halloween-inspired wreath made out of small wizard hats. To create more color, you can add stars and moons in gold or bright yellow to be able to add cheer to your trick-or-treat feast or Halloween party.

  1.    Orange or Black Curtains

Black is the usual theme of the party when it’s Halloween, but you can opt for a younger and up-to-date version with orange curtains instead. Orange and Black really goes well together when it comes to Halloween parties so you will never go out of tune with this color combination. To avoid being dull, you can place cutouts of witches, vampires, wolves and the likes to design your curtains.
