Cast a Spell with Your Halloween Decorations: Turn Your House into a Witch HouseOctober 18, 2019 // Posted in:
Are you a good witch or a bad witch? Maybe you’re not a witch at all. But when it comes to Halloween decorations, the thought of witches casts the perfect spell for fun. With Halloween around the corner, Granite and TREND Transformations is stirring up its own fun by offering some tips on how to turn your house into a witch house with Halloween decorations.
Witch House Transformation Step 1: Something wicked this way comes
Greet your “little pretties” with a fun or spooky Halloween decorations of a front door display to set the mood for what’s to come next. Hang fake spiderwebs. Set up witches and ghoulish decorations to entice those who dare to enter. (Oh, and don’t forget the black cat!) For any of you witches and warlocks who have your “wicked on,” try going all out in your front yard Halloween decorations by creating a creepy cemetery and hanging spooky-colored black and orange lights in the trees and bushes. Have fun with it and invite friends to help by recruiting a spook squad. Give each of them a witch’s hat for some wicked camaraderie. They’ll love the idea and you’ll love the help.
Witch House Transformation Step 2: Casting your spell
Now it’s time to transform your house into an eerie “coven” witch house. Creating an accent wall is a great place to start for this Halloween decoration idea. Dark paper or even black fabric can make the perfect backdrop for your witch house. How spooky you decide to make it is entirely up to you. It wouldn’t be a witch house without a cauldron to whip up some witch’s brew and cast spells. You can make this your main attraction. Simply put dry ice inside the cauldron to create a “smoky” effect. Just be sure to tell your guests not to touch the dry ice since it can damage their skin. Creatively decorate the room with witch-inspired accessories such as broomsticks, orange and black candles, complemented by creepy “witchy” things like toads and eyes of newt. Let’s take a break to see how well you know your witch incantations.

Witch House Transformation Step 3: Pooches, potions and snacks! Oh my!
Halloween isn’t just for kids anymore. While we adults are also getting in on the fun, we can’t forget about our four-legged family members. They want to have Halloween fun, too! Get Fido or your feline in on the action by dressing them up in your favorite costume. Your house may look “spooktacular,” but your pets are sure to steal the show.
Your guests may be under your “spell,” but their appetites will still be raging. Invite them to enjoy specialty “potions” and spooky snacks. In a punch bowl, serve a non-alcoholic beverage (potion) that everyone can enjoy and offer a kicker on the side for those who want to indulge. Float some rubber spiders or eyes of newt for a creepy effect. Your guests will love the extra touch and you just might get a scream out of the kids. The cupcakes above look good enough to eat. They’re just the right touch for a colorful and tasty treat.
Lastly, don’t forget the spooky background sound effects like thunder, screams and howls. It’s a great way to set the mood and send chills down their spines.
