hauntedHalloween is coming soon and I just wanted to share with you how to transform your home into a haunted house in 7 easy steps so you can get a jump start. Everyone loves a good haunted house and the kids will have a blast (as long as they are not too young) creating it. Use these quick ideas and you will be on your way to a spooky experience in your home!

Decide on a Budget - You can quickly transform your home into a haunted house on a very low budget or go all out and spend a fortune. One thing that I have found that works well for us in our home is to start small and keep building on it year after year. That way it doesn’t have to put a big dent in your pocket from the get go. Once you decide on your budget you will be able to categories what you want to do and reach your goals.

Pick a Theme – Picking a theme is probably one of the most important things when it comes to turning your home into a haunted house. Otherwise you will end up with some decorations haphazardly thrown together. Having a theme will make it much easier to turn your home into a haunted world and make it more like an experience. Here are some ideas for you.

  • Haunted Asylum
  • Dracula’s World
  • Werewolf’s Haven
  • Spider’s Den
  • Clown House <<CREEPY<<
  • MummyMansion

Set the Mood with Lighting - Lighting is everything when it comes to transforming your home into a haunted house. You can grab many different colors of lighting but I have found that black lights or little orange Christmas lights really set the mood. Allowing enough lighting in every room so that you can keep the lights off all together can really give a spooky effect and make it fun for all who enter. Take the time to go through every room and decide on your lighting first and then you can move onto decorations that will work with your lighting.

Start with the Entryway - The entryway to your home is where you are going to first grab their attention so make it good! The darker the better and you might as well load it up with plenty of spider’s webs. You can either let nature take its course and not clean your entry way off for a while or head out and grab some of that messy spider web stuff you can buy at the craft store. I have found that the craft store stuff can really look great if you take the time to position it correctly. You can also make some great lighting using old milk jugs painted like spooky ghosts and Jack-O-lanterns. Using a black light in your entryway is also a great way to begin transforming your home into a haunted house.

Transform Your Home into a Haunted House - Now the fun begins!! Use everything that you have that will match your theme and start decorating. There are plenty of creepy things that you already have on hand that will work perfect for your haunted house. Dolls can be made to look very creepy without tearing them up. Just tease their hair a bit and set them under a black light. Sheets can be made into scary ghosts and spiders can be made out of pipe cleaners. Anther creepy idea is to make a naked egg (Just set an egg with the shell still on in a mason jar filled with white vinegar for a few days.  Trust me it’s pretty creepy looking! Don’t forget to bloody hand prints everywhere!! These really add a great look and you can use the glow in the dark paint for use on mirrors and windows (make sure you get the kind that washes off) and I found a really cool bloody hand print shower curtain that is TO DIE FOR!!

Here are a few frugal DIY ideas for decorations :)

  • Use cereal boxes to make tombstones
  • Cut silhouettes in paper bags and add a battery operated light inside
  • Place glow in the dark fake spider webs and spiders on the corners of your pictures and mirrors
  • Fill colored stockings with newspaper and add a pair of red heels coming out from under a wall like the witch from the “Wizard of Oz”
  • Cut tree silhouettes out of large black poster board and make giant trees on your walls
  • Wrap toilet paper around your child’s dolls like miniature mummies
  •  Wrap gauze around mason jars and add googly eyes and a battery operated candle inside
  • Cut bats out of construction paper

Add Things to Stairs - If you have any stairs in your home it is a fantastic place to place “bloody hand prints”. They look fabulous streaked up and down the stairs like someone was trying to escape! Hanging shreds of wet sheets can make the stairs extra eery if they are placed at just the right level. You will want them to hit your guests face but not be long enough to trip on. Always remember safety when it comes to stairs!

Use Spooky Music - Use spooky music and sound effects to enhance the experience of your haunted house. It is one thing to transform your home into a haunted house but music will step it up to the next level. When you are looking for ideas on what kind of music to play for your haunted house stay away from the silly ones (unless you are wanting it for the kiddos) it can really kill the mood if you are trying to scare adults. A great music CD can make a break the haunted house for you. There are plenty of scary music CD’s choices on amazon and there are some great choices free on pandora too.

Are you ready to transform your home into a haunted house?? If so, check out our Halloween Pinterest board for more ideas!

amazon trade books

Amazon offers Amazon Gift Cards when you Trade in Books! This is a great way to make some extra cash (Amazon gift cards are cash right??? – they are to me….LOL) for items you have laying around the house. This is especially nice for college students because you can trade text books!

Or if you feel like shipping stuff, you can make more money by selling your old books through Amazon. I have done this several times and it is pretty easy, just list the book and then ship it to whoever buys it. Amazon will then send you the profits. Of course they take a cut of this.

The trade in for gift cards is new to me. I have done it before with video games but not books. It should work the same way and is SUPER easy. Simply search the book and if you like the amount of the gift card they are offering, click on the “Trade In” button. They even pay for shipping and will schedule UPS to pick it up!
