Decorating Your Apartment for Halloween

Halloween is always a fun time at Montrose Square Apartments in Fort Wayne.  It’s fun to decorate your apartment, but you always have to be careful so that decorations don’t damage your apartment.  Here are some ideas that won’t leave holes in your walls, or any other long-term damage.

 

First of all, concentrate on creating a great window display.  You enjoy it from the inside, while everyone else enjoys it from the outside.  Replace your existing curtains with inexpensive black, grey or white netting from the fabric shop. You do not need to sew or iron for this decorating tip. Cut the panels into the correct length and drape them over the curtain rod. Add some plastic (real ones if you dare) spiders and small skeletons to the netting for a spooky effect. Use clothespins and glue plastic spiders and bugs to them and use them to attach the netting to the curtain rods. This Halloween decorating tip for apartment dwellers will show both inside and on the outside of the unit.

Holiday window clings are great, too.  They add suspense, but don’t create any damage to walls or windows.

 

 

 

Next, add a decorative Halloween lamp to your window display.  A string of orange lights is ok, but discount and holiday stores now sell spooky lamps that decorate both the inside and outside of your apartment.  The pumpkin light and grim reaper window cling are both at Wal-Mart on-line.

 

Next, change out your entrance mat so that you have one that is a Halloween entrance mat. Some mats have a pressure sensitive switch that plays scary music or ghoulish sounds when you step on it. These are inexpensive and fun. They also let you know when someone is at your door.  Here’s a link where you can download ghoulish sounds.  Use cotton as spider webbing in the entrance area. All you need is a roll of cotton from the pharmacy or first aid section. You do not need to spend a fortune at the Halloween store for this decorating tip. Add plastic bugs from the dollar store and you are set.
