DIY Halloween Decor

It's October and before you know it, Halloween will be creeping up on you before you can say, "BOO!" If you want to have the most popular house on the street this October 31st, you're going to need more than the best candy. Make your front yard and entrance a spectacle and every kid will be knocking on your door for some treats. Decorating for this haunting holiday is fun and anyone can do it.

If you have bushes in your front lawn or entrance, place cobwebs on them to create an eerie, cryptic feel. Leading up to the entrance, line your walkway or stairway with plastic pumpkin luminaries.

One of the most classic and iconic items related to Halloween is the pumpkin. If you have a family, friend or significant other you're longing to spend some quality time with, carve a few with them and decorate the exterior of your house with the finished products. Pumpkins come in many sizes, shapes and shades of orange, and the best part is, no two carvings are the same.

Remember, if you don't want to totally creep out the kids, don't primarily create angry frowns - make a couple of them happy faces! Go online and search for creative designs. Just remember this can be a somewhat messy job, so do it in the tub, over a large sink or outside. Light a candle in each of the gourds to create a beautiful, orange glow. You may need to put multiple candles in the bigger pumpkins.

Of course, trick-or-treaters will see your great Halloween exterior and expect a tasty award. Offer them personalized M&M and Halloween tins. The kids will definitely say thank you if they're given holiday cookies.

It's always more fun for the kids if the homeowner is also engaged in the holiday spirit. Dress up as a witch, ghoul, ghost, superhero, animal or any recognizable figure and all the kiddies will be beaming.

Remember to keep your front light on - some parents may avoid having their kids approach a house that isn't well-lit. At the end of the evening you'll be able to pat yourself on the back for a job well-done and know you put a huge smile on the faces of children in your neighborhood.
