Surely it is the opposite of what we are looking for the rest of the year, but for the Halloween party we want to make our house the scariest in the entire neighborhood. We must be prepared to receive all kinds of monsters that will ask us the most repeated question of the whole night: “trick or treat?” . First of all, we will start by knowing how to carve the famous pumpkins, which will undoubtedly give us the most authentic touch to this night. Here we explain how to do it.
Pumpkins will be the protagonists tonight
We will only need a large spoon, a sharp knife and a small candle. We will take the pumpkin and with the knife we will make a cut in the upper part, emulating a lid. Through the hole that we have just made, we will empty the filling of the pumpkin with the spoon, basically pulp and seeds.
Next, we will imagine what face we want to put on our pumpkin and with a pencil we will draw the eyes, the nose and the mouth to later cut them with a knife. Finally, we will place the lid on the bottom of the pumpkin and stick the candle with wax so that it is well attached. With the candle lit we will realize the magical object that we have just created. Another option is to remove the candle and fill the content with candies and sweets, in this way the smallest of the house will enjoy our creation.
In houses with gardens, we will find the best option to display all our decorative imagination. A good idea would be to cut out cardboard boxes in the shape of tombstones, spray-staining them an ash color, and cover them with cobwebs. Of course, we can fill the garden with pumpkins, and as a final touch get a smoke machine to recreate the fog, which would end up turning our garden into a completely terrifying place.
In the houses with gardens, we will find a large stage to recreate Halloween night
However, for interior spaces there are also thousands of options, so those who do not have a garden do not have to be alarmed. The walls covered in black, candle-based lighting, cobweb sprays and plastic bugs hanging from the ceiling and walls are usually the most recurrent decorative objects on Halloween.
Now, there is another option that is also quite gloomy: we can turn our house into an old abandoned mansion, emulating the scene of a horror movie. To do this, we will cover the furniture with old white sheets, use dim lighting and play gloomy background music. Surely our guests will get a good scare when they enter.
