Tips On Making Your Windows And Doors Look Spook-tacular This Halloween

Spooktacular decorations for your home

Halloween can sometimes take a backseat to Christmas when we think of decorating our homes. This year, embrace Halloween fully and set the scene for this uniquely spooky occasion with affordable decor.

You can bring a smile to your neighbours, friends and family by getting into the spirit of Halloween. Read on for West Yorkshire Windows’ suggestions of simple ways to trim up your windows and doors.

Add an autumnal wreath

Nature-inspired decor is a tasteful way of welcoming the new season. Autumnal wreaths that mimic the colours of the leaves will make a breath-taking welcome for guests, whether you intend to host a Halloween gathering or just await the neighbours’ children.

If you’re in a crafty mood, you can purchase affordable autumn wreath kits from the likes of John Lewis and Amazon. You can even find workshops to guide you through the process.

Create a spooky entrance

The entrance to your home is crucial in making a spooky impression on guests and trick-or-treaters, especially if you are hosting a party. 

Adding pumpkins to your doorway may be an obvious choice but don’t forget you can get extra creative with carvings. Whether you carve a witch on a broomstick or a cannibalistic pumpkin eating a smaller pumpkin, no design is too big if you have the right tools (and follow the right tutorial)!

To finalise your entrance, delight and fright guests by swapping out your standard doormat for something a little darker. Halloween-themed doormats are becoming increasingly popular, and you can find every Halloween-appropriate quote and phrase on them.

Add lights to windows

Trimming up your windows with lights isn’t just for Christmas. Go for coloured bulbs in green to give your home a radioactive glow or choose orange for an ominous shine.  

You will even find novelty string lights in various shapes, in everything from eyeballs to pumpkins, to hang from your windows. 

If you are looking for something that will work all the way up to Christmas, add fairy lights to empty jars. You can create an enchanted display that is perfect for cosying up by the fire.
