Place Faux Specimen Jars
Take 2-3 jars. Put old toys, pieces of pipes, different types of rubber reptiles, dried leaves, stones and pebbles. Fill the jar with water and pour little bit green food color to give it a pale green shade. Cover the jars with lid. Place this in any corner of your room or dining table.
Collect some dried and broken branches from your garden, 2-3 candle holders and paint them black. Now place the branch in the middle and other stuffs around it, put miniature pumpkins to add extra touch to it. Place a toy raven on top of the branch and this is what gives your house an ominous look.
Cut out owl silhouettes from a piece of plywood or you can get them from a discount shop. Spray paint them with black color. Now place them randomly onto the front porch and they are all set to welcome your trick-or-treaters for the evening.
Give Your Walls a Spooky Makeover
Cover up the paintings on the wall with white cloth to give an abandoned look and sprinkle fake blood on the painting that is glass framed. Get some spider web from a store or you can use old cheese cloth, spread them all over your wall and put big chunks of cotton and hang faux spiders on it.
Collect a bunch of tree branches and put them in your pots, scatter fake rats and ants. You can also use an old bird cage and place it on the floor and make sure the door is opened. Get a bouquet of white roses and cover them with fake black spiders and caterpillars. Cut out bat garlands from black chart papers and drape them all over your house.
