Your whole house is ready to be decorated on Halloween, as the festivities are not limited to your front yard. The fun décor should extend to your entire house t give a pervasive festive spooky feel. The yard can be done up with spooky and ghoulish cut outs and hangings along with lots of light strings.
Don’t limit yourself to jack-o-lanterns when it comes to your porch. Large spooky ghosts made out of plastic bags and white fabric can be hung strategically. You can zip tie lights and spiders across the deck banister to give a eerie feel. Use a lot of black, white and silver to enhance the spooky feeling.
