Planet’s Tips To Embrace An Eerie Home Exterior This Halloween

Miniature pumpkins

The spookiest time of the year has crept upon us and now is the ideal time to make a hair-raising impression on your neighbours by decorating your home’s exterior.

If a six foot skeleton isn’t your style and pumpkins feel a little too obvious, read on. Planet has three ideas that will make a subtle, yet eerie, impression on passers-by.

Bewitching Details

Play the part of the neighbourhood witch and leave trick-or-treaters spell-bound by adding witch shoes and an old style broom by your entrance.

You can also add a sign that says “get your potions here” or “free flying lessons” to dial up the spookiness.

Hocus Pocus 2 was released on Disney+ just a few weeks ago, so children will love your bewitching accessories!

Too Ghoul For School Window Stickers

Great for families on a budget, you can purchase Halloween themed stickers from Amazon or at the supermarket.

Whether you opt for boo-tiful ghosts, creepy spiders or scary skeletons, you can embrace the spirit of the season by sticking them on your windows.

Halloween-Themed Light Box

The clocks are shortly due to go back, leaving us with even longer evenings in darkness. A light box in your window is a great way to add an ominous glow to your home!

Give trick-or-treaters a fright or delight with a Halloween message. You can regularly change the message, from “Trick or Treat” to “Turn Back Now”, depending on how welcoming you would like to be…

You can make use of your light box for other times of the year too, like birthdays and Christmas.
