Halloween Decorating and Preparation Ideas

Believe it or not, Halloween is just around the corner. (I know, I know. Summer just ended.) But with that in mind, it’s not too early to start thinking about decoration and party ideas to get the kids ready and festive. HGTV’s Halloween hub has everything you need, from outdoor decorations to Halloween snacks. Want to transform your front porch into a spooky trick-or-treat destination? Try wrapping mason jars with medical gauze or cheesecloth and gluing plastic spiders on the outside while placing a pillar candle or flameless luminary inside. Don’t stop there, though. Try putting some fake ravens throughout the yard to create an ominous graveyard feel. Secure the birds with wire tires so they don’t blow away in the wind. If that’s not enough, grab some red glass paint from your local craft store and turn your window or front door into a crime scene-inspired scare. In addition to these, check out the rest of the HGTV Halloween ideas, which include festive cocktail recipes, foam tombstones, wreath ideas, and pumpkin carving concepts.
