10+ Inspiring to Making Your Home a Spooktacular Sight for Tricker Treaters

Want to make your home look really spooktacular this Halloween? Make sure you follow these steps.

Now that fall is here, one of the most loved American holidays is just around the corner! Halloween is the second largest grossing commercial holiday after Christmas. But that being said, Halloween just doesn’t seem to be the same as it once was.

The dedication to creating truly spooktacular decorations seems to have gone by the wayside. But it doesn’t have to be that way… you can pave the way towards making Halloween great again! And here’s how to do it.

The best Halloween houses in the neighborhoods always seem to have a few things in common. One, good candy, and two, a killer theme (pun intended). If you really want to wow your trick o’ treaters, pick a motif and stick to it. Sure, you could go with “haunted house,” but consider other themes as well, such as an insane asylum or an extraterrestrial crash site.

Utilize as much of your outdoor space as possible. For example, if you have garage space you can use a black drop cloth and lights to create a mini “stage” that works with your chosen theme. For example, you could set up tables with beakers and other instruments for a “mad scientist” effect or create an alien experiment den. The more creative, the better! I mean, really, who doesn’t want to be known as “that house” in the trick or treat circles.
