How to turn your home into a haunted house this Halloween

Holding a Halloween haunt this October? Here's how to turn your home from "snore" to "gore"...

Trick or treat?

Spook out the spirits with a front entrance that will make their hair stand on end. Pumpkins can be effective without carving if you place a few ominous black crows on top of them, and these fun light-up pumpkins make a great, safe alternative to tealights. Trick or treat?

For a Jack-o-lantern even little kids can get involved in, try our pumpkin push-ins. The perfect no-carving spooky delight for your doorstep...

 

Watch your step

You can decorate an entire house in a flash with wispy spiders’ webs. Transform your staircase into a ‘scarecase’ by wrapping a tangle of webs around the bannister, then intersperse with pumpkin fairy lights for a ghoulish glow. Dial up the fear factor with our interactive Halloween TV. Press the buttons and wait to see shadowy spectres appear on the screen...

For a spooky trick that will really catch guests off-guard, this pumpkin wall plaque may look fright-free, but just wait until it rips out a giant, roaring cackle. That will get their hair standing on end...

Fright delights

As the witching hour approaches, vamp up your mantelpiece with freaky additions galore. This spine-chilling skeleton head is perfect for storing sweets or gruesome jelly brains inside. Or add the chill factor with a possessed doll that comes to life if you dare to press her hand...

Night fever

It doesn't all have to be goosebump-raising spook-fest though. For a trick that's a real treat, try our dancing skeleton figure. Press the button and watch him come to life... to the tune of Another One Bites the Dust!
