You’d love to make an effort for Halloween this year, but just don’t have the time.
Halloween is fast-approaching, so it’s time to think about how you’re going to scare the hoardes of trick-or treaters. If you’re stuck for time (and can’t, for instance, make Arduino Halloween decorations), the quickest way to make your house incredibly scary is to buy some classic decoration pieces from Amazon. After hunting around, we’ve decided that these items will make the biggest impact without breaking the bank. Time to get scary…
Tombstones in the garden are a subtle way of making your place look creepy. Just make sure there’s a bit of subtle lighting nearby so that the kids see it on their way past. This tombstone is made from styrofoam, which is what you’d expect for this price. It’s still realistic and it even has some decorative fake moss on it.
To make your tombstone even scarier, add a couple of Zombie arm stakes. There’s nothing quite like a dead person climbing out of a grave to make kids hustle. These dead grey hands and grey sleeves should do the trick.
Every spooky house needs bats, and these ones are just right with their spooky red eyes. This is a great collection of 12 bats and 24 hooks and 8′ strings, so you can set up your belfry as you wish. The bats are made of weatherproof black corrugated plastic board, so they will last from year to year. These bats come in different sizes, ranging from the large size of W16″x5.5″H to the smallest size of W9″x3″H.
If you don’t have a garden or you’re pressed for space, window decorations are a fantastic idea. They’re also great facing inwards if you’re having a house party for Halloween, but it will need to be lit from behind with a regular light for the best effect. This mummy is totally creepy and ready to scare your guests. You get two mummys with dimensions of 36″ x 60″ in the package, and they can be easily trimmed to fit your windows (they suggest windows from 24″ x 36″ to 36″ x 60″).
These neat little eyes come as a set of three, which can be linked in series if you like. This is the perfect creepy decoration for indoors or outdoors, so you can use them to light up your horror movie marathon night.
This spooky looking ghost is ready to put in your front yard or window and comes with LED lighting. The colours change occasionally to make things creepier, and it stands at 41 inches tall and comes with its own metal plate base.
Witch legs are a subtle, easy way to commemorate the Wizard of Oz’s 75th Anniversary and make your house creepier in the process. Not only are there witches around, but your house has flattened one.
Once you’ve given your little visitors the creeps with your amazing garden decorations, they’ll be ready to ring your doorbell. Terrified, yet desperately seeking sweet treats, they’ll come up to your door, stand on your mat and AAAAAAAAAAAAAARGH! Screams all round. Brilliant! This mat comes with two AA batteries, ready to go.
