If it’s your first Halloween in your new Hamilton apartment (or your tenth!), make it the best one yet! Be sure to check out Bizzarro’s Factory of Fear at Mizener’s Market for a truly scary experience, and learn more about Hamilton’s spooky side on a ghost walk and dark history tour through the downtown core.
Don’t forget to deck out your apartment for this ghoulish season with some epic Halloween decorations! Whether you’re hosting a group of costumed friends or just looking to embrace the rich terrors of Halloween for your movie marathon, here are some great spooky decoration ideas you can create in your own apartment!
Mason Jars and Body Parts
You know all those mason jars you’ve got kicking around in your cupboard? Well why not put them to use by adding in a few gruesome body parts from your local Halloween store. Fill up the jars with some water and dunk in a tea bag to make it murky and wonderful. Add in your favourite theatrical body parts and place them on a shelf – then watch your guests cringe.
Spook Up Your Picture Frames
If your apartment has a hallway or even just a feature wall, pick up some old, worn picture frames, or use ones you already have. Hop online and search for a few creepy photos – you know the ones you see on staircases in all the horror movies. Print them out, pop them in a variety of old frames and hang them along your hallway to add that perfect touch of creepiness as your guests enter.
Candles, candles and more candles. We can’t get enough of them for Halloween, especially when it comes to the dripping ones. If you’re in search of something cheap and cheerful that will still provide that chilling vibe, these candles are the way to go. Start with white, long-stem candle sticks and drip some melting red candle wax over the tops, letting it flow down the sides, for some spooky ambiance lighting.
Spice up your Mantle
If you have a mantle piece, it’s the perfect place to use as your central decorating canvas. Candles aside, add some cobwebs, drape on a few eerie lights, throw down some pumpkins, and even add a few of those mason jars you created to the mix.
Whether it’s your bedroom or a corner of your living room, you can add black lights if you really want to commence the horror of Halloween. It will bring your décor altogether and set the Halloween party mood just right.
This Halloween, there’s no better time to embrace your new place by getting in the swing of the season. And why not start early? Get your mason jars, fire up your candles, and get inspired by these great decorating tips to help make your apartment the spookiest one in the building.
