Halloween Decorating Tips for Your Rental Property

System - Tuesday, October 11, 2016

Halloween is a fun and exciting time of the year, not just for kids, but for adults too! There are a lot of various spooky festivities that you can be a part of, and decorating your home for Halloween can be one of them!  Whether it’s an autumn oasis that you want to create on your front porch, or a spooktacular front door, there is a Halloween decorating idea that will fit your home and décor style! Here are 5 unique ways to get your rental property decorated for Halloween.

  1.  Create a festive front door. 

A festive front door will create a unique scene for Halloween. Add a new Halloween-themed wreath to your front door, then accent it with some hanging bats above, as well as decorated pumpkins and hay bales nearby on the porch or walkway area.

  1.  Pumpkin planters.

Part of the fun of picking out pumpkins is thinking about how you can decorate with them. Jack-o-lanterns are just the beginning. Instead, hollow out a pumpkin and plant some beautiful fall mums inside. Line your steps, walkway, or front door area with some planters and you’ll add instant autumn beauty to your home in no time.

  1.  Pumpkin messages.

Gather some mini pumpkins and carve them into a greeting that is spelled out for your guests. Pencil letters on some hollowed pumpkins, then use a drill to bore holes to form each letter. Spell out “Trick or Treat”, “Happy Halloween”, or “BOO” for a ghostly greeting.

  1.  Add creepy crawlies.

Nothing says Halloween like spiders and other creepy crawlies lounging around your home. Head to your local Halloween shop and find large furry spiders or giant spiderwebs that you can hang from your doors, roof, or even siding on your home! For the do-it-yourself expert, consider crafting a large spider web above your front porch or walkway area with large ropes or tying together tinsel garland.

  1.  Add some classic décor.

If you’re too busy to put too much thought into decorating for Halloween, simple, un-carved pumpkins near your doorstep are classic! Add some buckets with berry branches or twigs cut from your yard, a couple of hay bales, and a faux leaf garland, and you have a classic look that shows that you’ve embraced the beautiful autumn weather.
