Your mantel is also the perfect place to drape cotton webs to imitate spider webs and give your mantel a haunted look.

Creepy Signs

Reclaimed wood is the perfect material to use for Halloween decorations because it can look old and rugged, which is ideal for Halloween. Talk to your local supplier and see if they have any scraps of reclaimed wood that you would use to make some wood signs to “guide” visitors through your haunted house. You can even use them as a mock tombstone in your front yard to look authentic. Look on Pinterest for inspiration on what to put on your signs.

Your Front Door

Your front door should look like the entrance to a haunted house or asylum. Use some old reclaimed wood scraps and secure them to your door in the shape of an X with some caution tape, the perfect imitated door for the spooky season.

Skeletons, Witches, Ghosts

What are the first things you think of when you think of Halloween? Witches, skeletons, and ghosts. Add these spooky creatures literally anywhere you can think of to bring the true Halloween spirit into your home. Hang some ghosts around your patio to give the outside of your home a spooky look with your monster eyes in the window and reclaimed wood tombstones in the yard.
