Halloween Decorations: Haunted House

You’ll need fake spider webbing, some washable (test it first!) glow-in-the-dark spray, some plastic spiders, a life-size plastic skeleton, black-light spray and black light fixtures, hanging bats, scary messages, etc. Start outside. Get men’s jeans and a long-sleeved shirt and stuff them with other clothes. Use gloves for hands, boots for feet, and a painted pumpkin for the head. Set it up to look like a person sitting on your porch. Use some of the spray, webbing, and spiders here, as well as some hanging creatures. Decorate the main room with low light, spiders, webbing and glow spray on the walls, creepy music playing. In the bathroom, use more spray and webbing generously in the bathtub with the plastic skeleton. The bathroom is a great place for a black light. By Eloah James |  Published 10/6/2009
