As we embark on the month of October and in an attempt to avoid placating my kids by setting up our Halloween decoration on the 25th I have promised myself that this Saturday I will knock out the whole project. The only problem? I don’t really have any extra time this week or weekend to get the project done. To that end I have been scouring the internet for simple Halloween decoration hacks. Below is what I think I’ll go with:
1.) Amazon prime – lets be real I could go to the store and buy all of this stuff but with a full work schedule this week I am not getting there before Saturday morning and that will double the length of the project. To that end over lunch today I am going to order some easily customizable (and cheap!) items from Amazon.com to jumpstart my Halloween decorating.
a. Paper pumpkins.
b. Cheap hanging ghosts.
c. Cobwebs (super fast and easy to string).
d. Orange light bulb for the front porch.
e. Front yard tombstone.
2.) Home made fog machine.
a. Fill with a crock pot warm water and grab just a little dry ice on the way home. Too much ice kills the fog effect.
b. Some twigs and leaves from the yard to disguise the crock pot (free!).
3.) Cover any of the visible furniture in your front room with sheets, ideally white or black.
4.) Candles in the front window (white, black, orang, and red are ideal but – what you already have is best).
That will probably cover our house for Halloween decoration this year unless I get a bee in my bonnet next week – but if you want to go further check out this article or you could go over the top like this guy.
