Halloween is a delightful season if you like to decorate. You can break out all your spooky accessories and give your lawn, your roof, and even your windows a thematic makeover to spook or delight your Kansas City neighbors. But some Halloween decorations can begin to feel a little trite after a while. Maybe you don’t want to hang up plastic spiders or leaves again this year. If you’re looking for something with more of a wow factor, we’ve got you covered this year. Here a few of our favorite unique Halloween decorations specifically for windows.
Tired of vague silhouettes or plastic accessories? Digital window decorations could be the perfect solution. Simply set up with a projector and turn on the projection you want — whether it be a screaming ghost or a flesh-hungry zombie. Face the window, and presto. A terrifying visage will appear at your window to spook trick-or-treaters as they pass by on the big night. This tends to be most effective at night. With the right equipment, you can even have a remote control to change the projection from time to time.
Often, the problem with window decorations is that they’re flat and two-dimensional. If you’re looking for something with a little more wow factor, consider adding a third dimension. A perfect example of this are window crasher ghost decorations. The indoor and outdoor parts cling to the window with suction cups, and even include the illusion of broken glass where the ghost seems to have broken through the window. 3D decorations feel more tangible, and more real, perfect to send shivers down your spine.
Maybe it’s just that your decorations look a little too streamlined, too much like something you can buy at any store. If that’s the case, maybe you want to make your own Halloween decorations. This works best if you’re already crafty — and have the time and resources to make Halloween decorations — but it can add a unique, personal touch to your decor. That might mean putting a creepy doll of your own making in the window, or a few cute papier mache ghosts. An ominous, bloody “Keep Out” sign would be easy enough to create, or you could take spare wooden boards to “board up” your windows and make the home look abandoned. When you create DIY decorations, your only limit is your imagination.
