For many of us in the spooky community, hunting for Halloween Decorations is a fun and enjoyable activity to do. Some of us have so much stuff, it is hard to find enough space to store everything when it comes time to do so. If this situation sounds familiar, the solution may be to make every day Halloween! You feel it in your heart, so why not see it in your home?
One solution is to leave out skulls, coffins, and bats as part of your collection. That’s a great start, but what about the millions of pumpkins staring at you as you shove them in a box?
What do I do for other seasons?
Take inspiration from the current season and incorporate Halloween touches! If it’s Christmas time, add a Santa hat to anything that resembles a head. Do you have a ton of blow molds that you can’t bear to put away? Bundle them up with scarves and they’ll warm your home with their light until the snow melts!
When springtime comes, most people are thinking bunnies, chicks, and pastels, but it’s also the perfect time to pull out all those re-animated monsters from your closet! Think about your favorite horror movies that take place during whatever season it may be, and add elements from them around your home. Another great way to stay in the season is to bring out any spooky floral you may have. Start your goth garden and celebrate the spiders and bugs that help your garden grow.
When Summer starts to heat up, you’re almost there! Throw some shades on the spooky faces that smile or scowl back at you. Maybe your jack o’ lanterns are baseball fans and you can find them cheap hats at yard sales or thrifts so they can enjoy a game in style! Satisfy your carving itch by making jack o’ melons for your backyard barbecues. Before you know it, the kids will be heading back to school and stores’ seasonal departments will become spooky wonderlands!
No matter the season, rotate out the spooktacular collection you’ve amassed with a little imagination. It will keep things fresh and the Halloween spirit alive. Happy Halloween homemaking!
