We have noticed lately that people either really get into the holidays or they don’t participate at all. If your one of the few that still loves participating in the Halloween fun, then you are sure to love this great DIY Haunted House project.
There are a number of ways you can make your house super spooky, here are some great ideas to really give your neighborhood a scare!
If you have a large front yard that requires the trick or treaters to walk up a path to your house, take advantage of the space and create a spooky cemetery. Set up tombstones throughout your yard and use fake blood to create a horrifying scene. Set the mood with a fog machine or 2 and have a spooky soundtrack playing in the background. If you have some friends that want to partake in the fun get all dressed up in scary costumes and slowly walk out of the fog. Your neighbors won’t know what hit them!
A spooky Maze is a great way to have ample opportunity to scare the trick or treaters. Use your garage to set up this spooky maze and set up a couple of different scenes, if your garage is too small or you don’t have a garage you can always use your backyard or your newly built Sunspace Sunroom to create this spooky maze. Use cob web and fake blood splattered throughout the maze with a fog machine pushing the fog though the maze to set the scene and use a spooky soundtrack to get the trick or treater jittering in their costumes.
Simple but Scary
If you haven’t left much time to put together a haunted house but still want to participate in the Halloween fun, then we have a simpler solution that is equally as scary. You’ll need a flickering light bulb to replace your outside light with, some corn stalks a chair, cob webs and a plastic pumpkin head. Decorate the outside of your house with the flickering light bulb, corn stalk, the chair & cob webs. Next get yourself or your partner ready to sit outside dressed up as a scarecrow with the pumpkin head on. When it’s just about time for the trick or treaters to come out have the scare crown sit out on the porch with the bowl of candy in his lap or off to the side and when a trick or treater comes to get their candy give them a scare with a real life monster.
These are all great ways to add a little extra fun to this Halloween. Visit www.greybrucepatio.com to see all of our great services and to find out more information about a Sunspace Sunroom.
