Published by: SMDC.com | October 26, 2018

Halloween is creeping up, and we can’t wait! How about you? You’ve still got enough time to prepare your condo this exciting and spooktacular occasion.

We’ve gathered some ideas on how you can turn your condo into a Halloween haven! Get creative with every room in your home; just check out these terribly terrific props that are terrifyingly easy to make:

Frightening Eight-legged Freaks

Here’s something that’s fun to make, and frightening to encounter – flying spiders! Make your condo look #extra by decorating, not with regular spiders, but with those that hang from the ceiling! Attach DIY spiders made of paper to balloons, and turn your simple living room into a living room of doom!

What you’ll need:

  • Balloons (with helium)
  • Black Paper
  • Decoupage Glue
  • Stitching awl or Barbecue Stick (for piercing holes)
  • String/Yarn

 

Creepy Crystal Ball Candles

Dim the lights and put up crystal ball candles as your bedroom gets freaky-fied, too! Bring out your inner goth with a creepy victorian-esque vibe in your very own nook of nightmares. No witchcraft here, just some used Christmas balls and old candle holders.

What you’ll need:

  • Candle Holders
  • Inkjet Transparency Film (or any clear, hard plastic sheet)
  • Clear Christmas Balls
  • Hot Glue
  • Candle (and a light)

Horrifying House Ghosts

Something as ordinary as a towel in the bathroom or a can of coffee beans in the kitchen can be instantly turned into Halloween decoration! Just roll up your towels, or wrap tissues/cloth around a tin can, stitch or stick scary eyes on them, and boo! -- You’ve got yourself some ghosts at your midst!

What you’ll need:

  • Towels
  • Tin Can
  • Tissue paper or White Cloth
  • Spooky Eyes (can be bought in a toy store or made at home)
  • Adhesive or Sewing tools
