So, spooky season is upon us. Therefore, I know you are all on the lookout for the best Halloween decorations. You want to make that Halloween party special! So, whether you’re going for haunted house vibes or simple front porch decor. Even centerpieces for party decorations or just some Halloween yard decorations – I’ve got you covered!
What is the Most Popular Halloween Decoration?
For years now, the Jack-o-Lantern has been the #1 most popular Halloween decoration. The Jack-o-Lantern actually goes way back in time. Their origin actually originates from an Irish myth about Stingy Jack. Stingy Jack tricked the Devil in order to get money. However, when he died God didn’t allow him into heaven and the Devil didn’t let him into Hell. So he was to roam the Earth for forever. Centuries ago, the Irish people began to carve demonic faces into pumpkins. This was in order to scare Jack’s soul away. When the Irish started to immigrate to America, they brought this tradition them with them. However, while in America it’s a more lighthearted tradition, the history behind it is actually really cool!
How to Decorate for Halloween on a Budget
And of the options I’ve included below are great budget-friendly Halloween decoration ideas. However, here are some additional tips. Especially if you’re looking for spooky Halloween decorations for cheap.
- Firstly, decide on a theme – and stick to it! Once you have a specific theme picked out, it’s easy to weed out the more expensive decorations and find more budget-friendly options. Zombies in the graveyard? Animatronics throughout the house?
- Secondly, go look at the dollar store! The dollar store always has great little trinkets and decor options…especially if you’re looking to make some DIY decorations.
- Thirdly, set a specific budget. It’s easy to get taken away (especially when online shopping) with all the spider webs, tombstones and fog machines. However, if you have a specific budget set – it’s easier to hold yourself to it!
- In conclusion, before buying new – shop the thrift store! Or even better, look around your house to see if you can reuse any home decor! You can find an old rake and repurpose it as a wreath. Similarly, turn milk jugs into ghosts. Moreover – even make ghosts from tablecloths or old newspaper.
