Yet, as time goes on people are creating more extravagant pumpkin displays, that make us question our carving skills. Forget the old-school scary faces, it’s all about vomiting pumpkins and also flesh-eating fruit. However, candles run the risk of fire so swap them for battery operated tea lights or LEDs! You can take your pick of colours, as well as creating strobing, flashing, and fading effects. Click here to purchase or alternatively, click here to search for LED tea lights in Google.

Use black poster board or card to cut out silhouettes of menacing witches, chilling cats, as well as ghostly shapes and much more. Place them behind a window, give them some backlight and there you have it – you’re very own horror movie scene.

Up Halloween Lighting:

If you have old-fashioned wall lights then leave them on, turn your main ceiling light off, and let them have their time to shine. If your wall lights come in pairs, then place scary paintings and frames in between to make your house look haunted!

Hiding in the Bushes:
