Fun and Easy Halloween Decorations and Costume Ideas
Spook Up Your House
While having friends and family over for Halloween may not be advised this year, you can get into the Halloween spirit by decorating your house, front porch, or even just the backyard. It can be as simple as placing a few lights and lanterns around a few carved pumpkins. Or, if you are feeling up to it, you can go all out with spiders and cobwebs in the corners, a witch with a bucket of green slimy stuff sitting on one side, cover your pots and boxes with white gauze with spooky eyes, paint pumpkins in different colors to transform them into black cats or bats, or even cut out skeletons from a thick paper and stick it on your windows and doors. If you have a big garage door, stick spooky stickers on them as well! Just these small changes will transform your place to bring you into the Halloween spirit.
