Halloween Decoration Ideas for Small Spaces
Halloween Decorations for Small Spaces
We only have a few days left for Halloween! You can get into the spirit this year, no matter what your plans are or how much space you have. With a little creativity, you can decorate even the smallest of living spaces. In this article, we will be discussing how to get the most out of a small space this holiday season.
All amazing décor starts off with great lighting. What good are your fabulous decorations if no one gets to see them? Many interior designers understand that adding the correct lighting to a small room can actually make it look bigger. By spreading the correct lighting around the room, you can create the optical illusion of a larger space. Some lighting tips may include:
- Using a lot of light
- Placing the lights in corners
- Bounce light off mirrors
- Place lights high
Skulls are the ultimate Halloween decorations. A decent-sized skull can be used as a great centerpiece on a table, in a candy dish, or as a candle holder. Use a skull as a seasonal paperweight or planter. In many cultures, skulls represent death, mortality, and protection. Skulls have been used a lot in history to symbolize rebellion and danger which makes them the perfect Halloween decoration to add to your home.
Life-Size Posable Body Skeleton
In addition to your skull, a full-size skeleton would really set the tone for your home. Pose the skeleton in different positions and dress it up in hilarious outfits. Surprise your family by moving the skeleton around the house and putting it in different situations. The fun never ends when you watch your skeleton make coffee or doing the dishes!
Crawling Baby Zombie
If you really want to get the spooks going then a crawling baby zombie is the way to go! This moving, sound-activated zombie is complete with glowing red eyes and growling cry. Hide your baby zombie beneath your couch, by a fireplace, or behind a curtain.
If you don’t have a lot of room, then building up is always an option. Hang a spooky skeleton or ghoul from the ceiling or on the wall. These sound activated animated props have glowing red eyes and ominous moving fingers. Bend your prop or plan a spooky surprise by hiding your ghost in your closet.
Spider webs are a cheap and inexpensive way to spruce up your Halloween decor! You don’t need alot of space to do it either! Simply drape your spider webs over your table, over your candy bowl, or as an added touch of spookiness to your other decorations.
Halloween Themed Candles
Nothing brings in the creepy holidays like the scent of pumpkin spice! Candles are a great way to bring in the holidays because they can be used year round as an added staple to your living room or home. Celebrate the holidays with an array of fabulous scents and essences!
