How to turn your humble home into a haunted house this Halloween

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

Spook out curious 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?

Close to the bone

No time for pumpkin carving this year? Plastic ones can add Halloween horror with a few LED candles placed inside to light up their spooktacular haunting smiles. And this translucent dancing skeleton with moveable arms and legs is sure to give all of your guests a fright, too.

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...

Fright delights

As the witching hour approaches, vamp up your mantelpiece with freaky additions galore. This teeth-chattering 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...
