‘Tis the season to be spooky, and what better way to channel the spirit of Halloween than by decorating your house? Contrary to what you may think, decorating does not have to be an expensive affair. Republic offers moving and storage units, and now, here is some of our advice on how to decorate your home for Halloween.
1. Cardboard is useful
If you have any spare cardboard boxes lying about, don’t toss them out with the recycling. Corrugated cardboard is an extremely useful and versatile decorative material. You can cut panels to make wall art, use old boxes for storage units, and more.
2. Tissue paper is too
Tissue paper is another cheap and versatile decorative material. You can use tissue paper to make streamers, counter top displays, window displays, and more. Tissue paper comes in a lot of different colors to so it will be easy to find the blacks and oranges for the holiday season.
3. Repurpose old items/materials
Got any old white sheets? Well, then you have a perfectly good ghost. What about an old broomstick and some black trash bags? Then there is your makeshift witch. Decorating doesn’t have to be expensive, you just need to get creative with your materials.
The Jack-O-Lantern is the quintessential Halloween decoration and no house would be complete without it. Luckily, pumpkins are in season and rather cheap during the fall and all you need to carve a pumpkin is a knife. Be careful though! The last thing you want is cut up fingers. Halloween gore is supposed to be fake, remember?
5. Use light to your advantage
One of the cool things about Halloween is that darkness itself can be a kind of decoration. The best part is you don’t need to buy anything; just switch around the lights in your home to bring out the spooky vibes. A good idea is replacing the bulbs in some rooms with red or UV bulbs for an ominous purple glow.
