Tips And Instructions For Halloween Decorations

Halloween is that one day that children (and even adults) wait for all year. It’s often tempting to start decorating your house for Halloween as soon as September arrives. Maybe it is something about the autumn, fall leaves, pumpkins, and harvest motifs that scream Halloween.

So, if you plan to start your Halloween decor in 2022, we’re here with some great tips to help you start, along with instructions on making Halloween decorations. In the following sections, we’ll explain how you can give your front porch a sinister Halloween makeover. We’ll also go through some tips for transforming your indoors with frightening and unique Halloween decorations in 2022.

But before we get to that, let’s get an important question out.

When to decorate for Halloween?

October 31st is just around the corner, and many of us wonder when to decorate for Halloween. While many people prepare for Halloween in September, the most popular time to start with the decorations is at the beginning of October. If you haven’t yet started with your Halloween decorations in 2022, it’s time to roll up your sleeves and get down to it.

With that, let’s look at the best outdoor Halloween decorations.

Outdoor Halloween decoration ideas

It’s the spooky season again! Time to get your decorations up.

The great thing about decorating during Halloween is that the slightest wisp of imagination can help transform something ordinary into something terrifying. With our outdoor Halloween decorating ideas, you’ll be able to take trick-or-treating to the next level. You can dress your entryway or porch with spiders, gravestones, and scary monsters that are sure to make your house the most popular spot on the street. While candy is essential, the trick-or-treaters would undoubtedly love to see your spooky setting just as much.

Ready to cast your spell over the entire neighborhood with Halloween decorations outdoors? Here are some of our best ideas –

1. Pumpkins tumbling over your front steps

Pumpkins and Halloween go together. But who says you can only use sugar pumpkins to decorate your house for Halloween? Look for pumpkins in all shapes, colors, and sizes when shopping for Halloween decorations. You can include the Cinderella pumpkin (blood orange color), Lakota winter squash (orange-green), mottled Kakai squash (yellow-orange), and even porcelain doll pink pumpkin. Set this ombré array of pumpkins on your steps to make it look like they are tumbling down.

2. Googly-eyed plants

Halloween decorations can be as silly as they are spooky. If you have some plants decorating your front porch, you can add large googly eyes on them to make it look like they’re watching the visitors from the corner. It’s an excellent idea to nestle these plants in the corner, in front of a bush. All the trick-or-treaters that come to your porch will indeed find it hilarious.

3. Tombstones

Another great Halloween idea is to turn your garden into a graveyard. How do you do that? Set a few tombstones in your front yard to make it all spooky. You might get fake tombstones in any of the online/offline stores. If you are interested in fashioning them yourself, paper bags can also be trimmed and painted gray to look like a tombstone. To make them look eerily like gravestones, you can add some mini lights too.

4. Supersized spider on your front porch

I think we can all agree that nothing is creepier than a spider. If you want to make your house the best Halloween-ready haunt in the street, why not add a giant spider near your front door? Adding cobwebs to the mix can incorporate the whole ‘spidery’ theme. Your visitors will certainly be impressed with this creepy-spooky decoration idea.

5. Dark wreath

Add a unique touch to your front door decorations by greeting the visitors with a snake-wrapped wreath. It might not sound effortless, but it’s pretty easy to make. All you must do is buy a grapevine wreath and paint it black. Wrap some plastic snakes around the wreath and use a wire to secure them. And it’s done.

6. Skeleton surprise

You might think skeletons are terribly overrated Halloween decorations, but there’s no denying that they’re the best for adding a spooky element to your garden. You can even use some unique ways to dress up your skeletons.

7. Mini Jack-o'-lantern

Does your front porch open to a gate? Why not dress it up with mini jack-o’-lanterns? You can even add some string lights to dress up the entrance. This will be great for completing your tumbling pumpkin decoration.

8. Laser-cut metal lawn decorations

If you want to keep your outdoor decorations simple, you can choose laser-cut spooky decorations. This is also a great idea to make your home Halloween-ready on a budget.

9. Cut-out bats on branches

Another simple Halloween decoration idea is a bat cut-out, which can be attached to branches. For this, take a black chart paper and trim it in the shape of a bat.

10. Spooky sheet ghosts

Remember those spooky sheet ghosts from Scooby Doo? Instead of adding a scarecrow, you can make a trio of sheet ghosts as the centerpiece of your lawn. This can be a fun spooky element for your 2022 Halloween decoration.

So, what do you say? Weren’t these ideas for Halloween outdoor decor in 2022 great? Let’s look at some ideas for Halloween indoor decor in 2022.

Indoor Halloween decoration ideas

People usually spend most of their time and energy decorating the outdoors to dress it up in the spookiest way possible. Indoor Halloween decorations are just as important, whether you are having a Halloween party or not. Adding cute and fun Halloween decorations indoors is also a great way to make your house a spookier destination for trick-or-treaters. Here is how it’s done –

1. Sweets and flowers

Jazz up your home with a combination of sweets and flowers. Roses, sunflowers, lilies, daisies, and carnations are all great for adding the orange glow typical for a Halloween theme. How can you incorporate sweets into this theme? Replace your regular decorative element with bright orange and yellow-colored sweets.

2. Cheesecloth ghost

This is a great DIY Halloween decoration idea you can do with your family. All you need is some cheesecloth, glue, vases, and maybe some balls. Mix water and glue (50-50) to dip the cheesecloth. After dipping it in the mixture, remove it to place it on a vase to dry. Ideally, you would want your cheesecloth ghost to have rounded heads, so before putting the cheesecloth on the vase, attach a ball on top of the vase. Shape your ghost and let it dry.

3. Scary picture frame

Here’s another unique way to decorate your interiors for Halloween. You might already have some family pictures in your living room. Make it a little spooky by adding some frames featuring creepy portraits.

4. Tin can Halloween lanterns

If you already have traditional Jack-o’-lanterns in your outdoor Halloween decoration, tin can jack-o’-lanterns can be an excellent indoor possibility. Cover a paint can with orange color and paint some jack-o’-lantern faces. Instead of placing wax candles inside, some LED lights will do the trick.

5. Witch silhouette on a window

This terrific indoor Halloween decoration idea can make your house look spookier from the outdoors. You can place a cut-out of a witch (or any other scary creature) by your window behind the curtains. When the room’s lights are switched on at night, it will surely catch the attention of any passerby.

6. Jack-o'-lantern tea lights

Here’s another great Jack-o’-lantern idea for a Halloween dinner party. It would be best if you had some carved-out oranges to create these mini tea lights. Cut out the face and mouth, just as you would with a pumpkin, and place some tea lights within it. Not only is this a great decoration idea, but it will also fill your room with a sweet orange smell.

7. Spiders invading a wall

You can make your living room wall seem like spiders are invading it. This decoration idea requires some basic DIY. You can find tiny toy spiders in almost every store. Get some double-sided tape and attach these little spiders to a wall. You can make it seem like they’re crawling from behind the sofa.

8. Mercury poison bottle setup

If you have some old wine bottles in your home, you can turn them into spooky dinner place decor by painting them silver. Make your own labels to attach to the fake 'mercury poison bottles.

9. Crow cut-outs

This simple DIY Halloween décor can be a great addition to any part of your home. Just as you did with the bats, cut out small crows from a black chart paper. Place them on top of your fireplace, side table, or doors to make them spooky.

10. Apothecary jars with Halloween trinkets

If you have apothecary jars, you'd have to buy some small Halloween trinkets like bones, skulls, and little pumpkins to make this Halloween decor. Fill these trinkets in the jars and place them on any table.
