2017 Halloween House Decor Ideas
In just a few weeks, it is Halloween time again! If you still don’t have an idea on what to decorate your house for Halloween, continue reading. We’ve compiled this year’s top Halloween house decor ideas:
Walking Dead has been ongoing for a few years already, but the zombie theme is still a hit. Decorate your door or gate with the famous “don’t open, dead inside“ scene from the series. You can also place zombies in your lawn (tip: use old clothes and fill it with unused fabric so that it will shape like a real human body).
You’ve probably been living under a rock if you still haven’t heard or have seen Stranger Things. Because of the success of the show, youâ€™ll probably see a lot of costumes and house decor based on Stranger Things. However, it is an easy and fun theme. Not to mention, you can still add your own touch to it.
If you want the more scary and creepy house decor, you’ll definitely love the clown theme. Hang some red balloons on your porch, and people will instantly recognize your theme. It is also fun to hang toy clowns inside your house. Go the extra mile by recreating a carnival inside your house.
If you have kids, especially little girls, they would go crazy with a Moana-themed house decor. Halloween doesn’t always have to be scary, so if you want a theme that your kids will love, you can settle for Moana. It is also much more affordable than other themes since you can DIY most of it or use recycled materials.
Nowadays, Harry Potter is a classic and fun Halloween theme to do. It’s magical and not to mention; you have a lot of choices to decorate your house with. Use old brooms, hang dementors or you can go as intricate by recreating the famous Hogwarts halls with floating candles.
Good Ol’ Traditional Decoration
Even though it’s 2017, you can never go wrong with traditional decoration. Spiders, bones, skulls, spider webs, and glowing pumpkin lanterns. Make your house look haunted by decorating it with fake cobwebs and hanging ghosts.
