Transform your home into a House of Horrors

October 18, 2012 in Blog, Halloween, Irish Daily Star

Throw yourself into Halloween this year by decorating your home, even if your not having a party.

Tesco pumpkins start at €1.49 and they’re a great place to start. The time honored tradition of pumpkin carving is surprisingly fun, and a great way for any house to show that you know what time of year it is. For creative suggestions look no further than Extreme Pumpkins.

Your local two euro shop is currently a cornucopia of halloween treats; fake spider webs, festive table cloths, black roses and skull shaped candles, to name but a few. With a little creativity, for under a tenner you can turn your home into a haunted house.

Tip: If your going to use fake blood in decorating, be aware that it could stain. It’s one thing decorating you house for halloween, it’s entirely another making your toast in the morning on the set of the The Texas Chain Saw Massacre – and you can say goodbye to your security deposit.
