To put shivers up people’s spines doesn’t necessarily need to cost you a lot of time, money and effort. Some small fang-tastic touches to your windows and doors should do the trick and make it look hair-raising enough this Halloween.
Add an autumn wreath to your front door
You’re wrong to think that door wreaths should only come out at Christmas. You will see that many front doors are adorned with a wreath at this time of the year.
There are online tutorials that show you how to make your own wreath, if you fancy picking up some leaves from outside, buying some wire and having a go at creating a home-made version. Too complicated for your liking? Etsy has lots of pre-made autumn wreaths you can purchase.
Turn your entrance into an eerie one
A Halloweeny-looking entrance will immediately tell people that you’ve entered into the spirit of things.
It wouldn’t be Halloween without some pumpkins, and where better to put them than on either side of your front door. Rather than just pick out some pumpkins at the supermarket, why not visit a nearby pumpkin patch – the kids will love that.
They will also love carving them with you. Find a fun stencil and assist with using a serrated knife to make the necessary cuts.
Put the frighteners up house guests further with a doormat outside that greets them with the chilling words: ‘Turn Back Now’.
Light up your windows
For the full Halloween effect, make use of your windows, which you can always do by hanging stringed lights around the frames in the colours of red and orange. They will give it a ghoulish glow at night.
Add to the light display on the window sills, where you can place some mason jars filled with fairy lights. The light emitted from all of this will give you a feeling of warmth and comfort indoors, just the sensation you want when snuggling up to watch some favourite Halloween movies.
Right now, there is an Autumn Price Freeze on replacement windows and doors at Eden Windows, if you discover that your current windows and doors aren’t insulating your home properly. Our Special Offers page has more information.
