If you have ever watched a 90’s sitcom, you have seen the magical things families can do with a homemade haunted house. Well, why not give it a try? Putting together a neighborhood haunted house can be surprisingly easy and make your house the destination house on All Hallows Eve. Let’s check out what you’ll need for your haunted house.
The first step is to make a plan. If you use your house, think about cleaning out your furniture so nothing gets broken during the night. If you choose to use your front yard, think about the side you’d like your haunted house to be. Ask a neighbor if they’d let you use their yard as well to make the haunted house big and scary. After you have a plan, start decorating!
Using a tarp to cover your area will help contain the scares into the room as well as give you more things to work with. A classic decoration for your haunted house is a black light. These lights will give your haunted house a scary, florescent glow. Give your guests plenty of scares by recruiting neighbors, friends, and family members to wear costumes and hid around the makeshift room. Decorate the tent with ghosts, ghouls, and zombies for plenty of screams. Place some tombstones at the front of your yard to give the guests some amusement when waiting and to give your yard a complete look.
Complete the look and feel of your haunted house by adding dry ice fog. Place dry ice into a bucket with warm water to create the fog, spread the fog around your tent with a small fan to cover the entire area.
Not only will this fog give your haunted house a scary, spooky feel, but it will give your actors the coverage they need to move about without being detected.
Happy Endings or Not
You have officially scared every child walking through your haunted house, now it is time to give them their candy. But why not use one last trick? Cover some plastic bowls with plastic wrap and will with wet noodles, grapes, and carrot slices. The noodles will feel like brains, the grapes like eyeballs, and the carrot slices like fingers. Your guests will get the gross-out of a lifetime before they get their reward.
Halloween doesn’t have to be just giving out candy from your front yard. Think outside the box and make your very own haunted house! Using your imagination, a little ingenuity, and some dry ice, your yard will be the scream of the year!
