Halloween is an ideal time of year to as creative as you want to be. Normally Halloween decorations include pumpkins, witches, and skeletons. However this holiday, you can open up the door for so much more. You just need to put a little time into it, and you will come up with some very creative decorations that will surely surprise your friends.

Here are a few creative Halloween decorating ideas:

Paintings and murals:

Although it is almost impossible to paint your walls to create a spooky atmosphere, however the next best thing would be paintings and murals. Buy them or create your own and hang them all through the home to create a weird effect. This will creeps out your guests when the lights are turned down low. You can create any mood you want by installing wall lighting. They will aid in adding to the spooky effects.


One idea is to dress up a scarecrow in a scary costume and place it along the path leading to the front door so that all visitors must pass by it. Using outdoor lights will also give it a spooky glow and will make it even more dramatic.

Spider webs:

Although using spider webs to decorate for Halloween is not new idea but there are a number of creative ways in which you can decorate your home with spider webs. You can use them both indoors and outdoors. In addition, they are much more dramatic with a giant realistic spider lurking within. Placing a miniature of a person in the center of the web with a larger than life spider coming in for the kill will also create a scary effect.

Decorating for children:

Having children in your home does not mean that you cannot decorate for Halloween. You can still be creative with your decorations without making it too scary for the kids. Using your imagination to present them in a new and distinctive way, harmonize with the classic ghost, goblins, bats, and cobwebs. Consider a variety of colors and put them in different places.

Accent your home with fall colors:

If you do not want to decorate for Halloween that scares your guest, you can accent your home with fall colors. Items such as fall leaves, pine-cones, and pumpkins can be used to create a stunning centerpiece for your table. Moreover, consider replacing your curtains and tablecloths with orange and black ones. You can also use Halloween themed plates and cups.
