1. Access Your Inner Child
If you want to take your decorating in a goofier direction, access your inner child, and get crafting!

2. Bring the Outdoors Indoors
If you want to keep your Halloween decorations lowkey, just incorporate a bit of the outdoors into your decorating.
Jack-o-lanterns are always a must for Halloween, and you can keep them indoors or out on your porch.
Pick up a few gourds and feature them in a nice basket in your kitchen or your living room!
3. Stay on Budget
Halloween is the perfect time to get thrifty!
Stop by a consignment shop or an antique store and pick up some older vintage-looking items.
Older pieces and ornaments will help you craft a spooky, old castle vibe!
Dollar stores are another great place to hit up for all your decorating needs.
You can often get very cheap decorations, such as styrofoam tombstones or spiderwebs, for dirt cheap.

4. Cue the Lights
For an easy way to decorate for Halloween, find some fun colored lights to set up outside or inside.
Blacklights can make a room very dramatic and spooky, and they don’t require much set-up!
Red lightbulbs can also give a room an eerie flare, so experiment with some colored bulbs to create a unique Halloween style!
5. Get Dramatic

Add a fog machine to your list of Halloween decorations.
It’ll immediately up the spook factor. Create a playlist that you can blast of all your favorite creepy songs and Halloween hits!
Blood window decals are another way to add some dramatic Halloween flair to your home!
