Set your house apart with specialty Halloween decorations
Halloween grows bigger and bigger every year: more complex costumes, bigger parties and costlier decorations. Set your house apart without breaking the bank by adding a few specialty halloween decorations. While other houses are trying to outdo one another with more and more decor, adding some subtle special touches can make your house the talk of the town.
Use fog machines, other Halloween decorations and fall decor to make your home seem spooky, especially at night. Set up grave stones in your yard. Cover your porch in spider webs and hang a strobe light from your porch. Use fall pumpkins and owls to add touches of brightness in the creepy decorations during the day. You may even decide to make a frightening scare crow. By using specialty Halloween decorations like fog machines, you'll be sure to set chills down the spine of anyone who happens past.
Of course, sometimes the subtle decorations are the most effective. Instead of setting out obvious props and inflatables, try creating ambiance simply with special effects. Use your fence and a fog machine to turn your front yard into a haunted swamp, complete with creepy sound effects playing in the background. You can also use special decorations to make your house look broken down, or create a theme. Medieval options would feature chains and heads on spikes; a large collection of spiders or skeletons can be used to make it look like your house is under attack. You can even turn your whole house into a pirate ghost ship! Creatively utilizing your existing pieces with a few new additions can set your house apart while showing off your creativity.
One of the easiest ways to make your house creepy this Halloween is to use many decorations and incorporate some living performers. Get your family and teens to dress up and join you passing out candy. Kmart has a wide selection of scary teen Halloween costumes so your teen can help you scare kids as they come to your door for candy. Match your teen's costume to the Halloween decor, if possible. For instance, if you've covered your yard in gravestones, it might be spookier if your teen dresses as a zombie. Browse women's and men's costumes for pirate outfits, then use makeup to turn yourselves into zombie or ghost pirates.
For people who want to get into the spirit of the holidays cheerfully instead of scarily, Kmart offers tons of smiling pumpkins, friendly ghosts and costumed cartoon characters to put some of the cheer back into All Hallow's Eve. Use lovely fall-hued flowers to create beautiful scenes. The beauty of fall is in the harvest, so use dried berries and pumpkins to lend the holiday some cheer. No matter what your design style is, Kmart has options to take your holiday decor to the next level.
