Spruce Up Your Home this Halloween

Family dressed up for Halloween

Now that October is here, it’s time to put away the summer decorations and get your apartment ready for the Halloween festivities. Though Halloween is only a day in the month of October, the festivities can stretch throughout the entire month, which means you can find the right decorations for your home without having to search too hard! In this week’s Two East Congress Blog, we’ve got a few tips for you to help you spruce up your Tucson, AZ apartment this October.


Carved Pumpkins

If you’re looking for decorations, you don’t need to look any further than the local grocery store or pumpkin patch! Get yourself some pumpkins to carve. Carving pumpkins allows you to let your creative side manifest itself, so pick something fun to carve or carve the traditional jack-o-lantern. Regardless of what design you choose, these pumpkins will add that fall flavor to your home.


Make it Spider Infested

Creepy decorations are all a part of the Halloween atmosphere, so making parts of your home look spider-infested can accomplish that look for your home. The decoration is fairly simple: all you need is the fake webbing and plastic spiders that you can easily find at the store. There are many options to choose from when picking a place to infest, so choose wisely! We recommend choosing the door, since it’s the first thing any guests you invite over will see when they come over.


Bloody Handprints

A simple way to spruce up your home is by making some homemade bloody handprints. To make this simple wall-cling, you’ll need the following ingredients:

  • Elmer’s Glue

  • Red food coloring

  • Blue food coloring

  • Wax paper

  • Plastic saran wrap


Once done, you can hang these up on any window or mirror in your house. This small addition to your home’s decorations can really bring the Halloween atmosphere into your home.
