Halloween is right around the corner and soon the night will be filled with trick-or-treaters. For many homeowners, this is a great time to decorate the home and get in the festive spirit. There are plenty of Halloween decoration ideas for you to choose from, whether you’re looking to send chills down everyone’s spines or amuse them with colorful designs. To help you get started with your Halloween decorations, here a few ideas you can try on your Nashville home:
Creating a Scare Fest around Your Home
For those who want to give trick-or-treaters a thrill when they visit, you will want to transform your front yard into a ghastly place — one that visitors will be keeping an extra eye on. To do this, try re-creating an eerie graveyard setting. Set out some foam tombstones and purchase a few zombie figures that you can utilize in different ways. Stretch some spider webs across the tombstones and across your front porch for an added effect.
Since Nashville is the music capital of the country, you can try and find some old, busted speakers and place them around your yard. In addition, use a music player to play some scary music with a strobe light flashing in the back scenes.
Keeping it Child-Friendly
If a lot of children trick-or-treat around your neighborhood, you might want to keep your Halloween home decorations child-friendly. Use carved pumpkins with different designs to help add a special touch. You can hang some paper bats from the gutters or ceiling of your porch. Another item that has been gaining popularity are Halloween lights. Find strings of orange and purple lights and artfully place them around your home. It’s still Halloween, but non-scary.
Avoiding Halloween & Opting for Autumn
If you’re not a fan of Halloween decorations, you can decorate your home with Autumn in mind. This especially comes in handy when selling your home during the fall season. Setting out a few pumpkins and maybe an Autumn wreath helps add a special holiday touch. It often symbolizes warmth and coziness, which home buyers will love. For the yard, you can add a few fall flowers like Easter Daisies really add a unique touch.
