Décor and gore

There are a lot of options for how to decorate your home to scream Stranger Things. You could go so far as to turn your living room into a recreation of the Upside Down, or you could simply put an alphabet on the wall to communicate with Will Byers. It’s up to you how far you take it – but here are some cool decoration ideas for how to create a creepy viewing room:

Light it up

Throw some Christmas lights up on your wall, along with the alphabet. Try an easy DIY mural – or – a quick Etsy purchase. If you’re busy in the kitchen with your French Onion Barb, you may want to go the easy route here.
