Save and Make Last Minute Halloween Splendid
Halloween used to be about pumpkins and jack-o’-lanterns. Now it’s on the level of Christmas trimmings – extravagant and sometimes over the top. Not everyone has the inclination or budget to go all out for what used to be just a kid’s holiday, but below are a few basic, inexpensive, family-friendly yet frightening ideas to give your home a haunted look.
It’s all about black – This works best indoors. Black candles, black vases, black flowers.
Bump up the candle display – Votives are fine, but candelabras are better.
Bones – Dollar stores offer a plethora of inexpensive décor and bones are among the many that drive the spook factor home. Prop them on steps, porch swings and throughout the yard.
