Halloween decorations are fun, but then you have to store all the stuff the other 11 months of the year, plus decorations can be expensive. Apartment Therapy scours the web and comes up with the best ideas for using stuff you have around your apartment to get in the spooky mood.
Candles are a great way to spook up your home. The flickering light creates shadows and makes everything feel a little scary. Black candles especially work for the holiday and can also be used to decorate year round. After all, they match everything!
Jars and clear vases are something you're sure to have lying around. Fill them with candy or creepy crawly stuff and suddenly you've got a Halloween display! When it's time to switch to Thanksgiving, just eat the candy and fill the jar with leaves, then for Christmas, put in the candy canes. What an easy way to show your festive side!
Goblets filled with deep red punch or wine will add a macabre, gothic edge to your tablescape. You can also use cheesecloth and black construction paper to make all kinds of ghoulish delights, check out the article for all the details. Happy Haunting!
