Decorating Tips

Spooky Decor for Your Home

With Halloween just around the corner, you’ll want to incorporate spooky and festive decor into your home entertaining. Living in one of Judd Builders beautiful communities, you have the opportunity to make your home shine this fall with a variety of decorations and themes. Here are some suggestions to get you started.

Black Cat Pumpkins: Welcome trick-or-treaters to your door with a cute little litter of black cat pumpkins – no messy carving involved. This is a great project for you or even your kids or grandkids. Paint some small to medium pumpkins black, then add ears and whiskers crafted from black construction paper.

Garage Door Shadows: Add a neat look to your garage door’s exterior with adhesive black vinyl sheets that you easily remove when the season is over. From night scenes to bats to pumpkins and creatures, you can really get creative with these decals.

Skull & Bones: Get creepy inside your home! Purchase mini skulls from your local craft store along with fake spiders and bones (if available) and place them in varying sized vases. Arrange them on table tops or even your mantle for a spooky addition to your home.

Glittery Gourds: For an indoor table scene, perhaps right by your entry way door, add some glittery, glamorous gourds and pumpkins. Choose pumpkins of varying sizes, make designs with glue (think spiders and spider webs), then sprinkle black glitter on top. You can even make black bats out of small pumpkins too and place them on your mantel or tabletop. Just paint them black and add black construction paper wings. Add googly eyes or paint them on with white paint.

Candy Corn Candles: Gather varying sizes of hurricane vases and candle holders, add thick orange pillared candles, then fill the rest halfway with candy corn all around. Voila, your porch or entryway is instantly transformed into a delight for trick-or-treaters.

 Pumpkin Display: Not all pumpkins need to be Jack-o-lanterns to be festive! Pick up some orange and white pumpkins in different shapes and sizes. Paint different patterns on them with black paint, such as a chevron print, stripes, or diamonds – whatever fits your style. Then place these pumpkins on candle holders of varying heights. You’ll have some height, texture and color to your Halloween display.

Spooky Mantel Scene: Place some black candle holders mixed with orange and white candles, add colorful pumpkins (orange and white), along with a Happy Halloween banner and you’re on your way to a classic and spooky mantel scene. Add string lights or a black spider web to add even more spook to your design. Check out some of these creative mantel scenes to get inspired.
