Halloween decorations are the spookiest way to get your home ready for the holiday, and vintage decorations are the spookiest of them all! Before you head out to the store and pick up an overpriced Halloween witch that you’ll toss in the trash come November, check out these 6 spooky vintage Halloween decorations instead.
1) DIY Spiderwebs
DIY spiderwebs are a cheap and easy project that can be completed in an hour or two. Generally, all you need is a roll of crepe paper (available at most craft stores), scissors, and some string. First, cut the crepe paper into strips and then tie them together in little bundles. Then, make a loop with the string and attach it to something that won’t budge–a doorknob is good for this.
You would be hard-pressed to find someone who doesn’t enjoy the spookiness of a haunted house. If you want the ambiance of a creepy evening all year round, then you’re in luck! Here is the vintage halloween decorations that will make any space feel like it’s straight out of a horror movie.
Witch Pots – You can never go wrong with a witch pot; they’re so versatile, and come in all shapes and sizes. You can use them indoors or outdoors. They’re perfect for throwing some fake cobwebs over or filling them with some eerie green plants (check out this post for instructions).
3) Old Mirrors
The first of the creepy vintage decorations is an old mirror. Old mirrors add a certain creepiness and can make even the most well-lit room seem dark and spooky. When you hang an old mirror, it’s best to hang it up high so that no one accidentally walks into it and breaks it. But make sure you place it against a wall or near furniture where someone won’t be able to walk into it by accident. Also you might want to place some fake cobwebs in front of the mirror as well, just for effect!
4) Floating Ghosts
Floating ghosts are a fun way to decorate for the spookiest time of the year. You can find them on Amazon, or make your own with a few simple supplies. Simply cut out an old sheet, use some wire hangers and have someone hold up the sheet while you tie it to chairs in an empty room. Turn off all the lights and voila! These little guys will be floating around as if they were alive!
5) Cobweb Window Curtains
Cobweb Window Curtains are the perfect way to let the spookiness of Halloween creep into every room of your home. So use these curtains on doors, windows, or as a decoration in any room you want. Generally, they’re easy to hang and come with instructions that make installation simple!
6) Tin Can Lanterns
A tin can lantern is a fun and easy way to create an atmospheric ambiance. Just simply fill a tin with water and pour in a few drops of food coloring. Then light the candle inside, place on the porch, and enjoy!
-Create silhouette silhouettes: With some scissors, crepe paper, string or ribbon and googly eyes, finally you can make spooky silhouettes for all over your house.
-Use ghosts for party decorations: Use string lights as the base for a spooky decoration by tying fishing line between each light fixture at the top of your house (outside) and attaching 5-8 balloons just above them.
