Decorating a haunted house for Halloween can be a lot of fun. Depending upon how much time, effort and money you want to put into the decorating process, there are plenty of different choices for decorations to outfit a haunted house with. The more creativity and planning you put into choosing the right haunted house decorations, the happier you’ll be with the end result.
No haunted house is complete without plenty of cobwebs, which are perfect for adding spooky ambiance to the room. Stretchy cobwebs can be purchased at any store that sells Halloween decorations, and are usually rather inexpensive. Try to hang cobwebs in as many parts of the haunted house as possible.
If you want to add light to a haunted house without actually making the room any brighter, there’s no better way to do so than to use blacklight bulbs. These bulbs cast an eerie glow that is perfect for adding just enough light so that one can see where they’re going when walking around the haunted house. Perhaps best of all, blacklight bulbs tend to be rather inexpensive, especially if you decide to purchase them in bulk.
If you’re on a budget, one of the best ways to make your haunted house not only spooky but unique as well is to make your own decorations utilizing basic foods from your kitchen. There are a variety of foods that can be placed in bowls and left throughout the haunted house for people to put their hands into. For example, cold and cooked spaghetti can be used to simulate the texture of brains, while olives can be used to resemble eyeballs. This makes for a fun “initiation” activity to task your guests with before they’re allowed to enter into the haunted house, and is best done in a dark room.
