Halloween House

I know we don’t go all out for Halloween on this side of the pond, but in America the decorations have already gone up – and I can’t resist sharing the picture of this fully decked out Halloween house.

These window decorations were made by a couple who have just moved into the house, and who had lots of empty cardboard boxes kicking around… They cut the monsters out of the corrugated cardboard and painted them black. The monsters’ eyes were made from a little tissue paper and sticky-back plastic. The backlighting is the normal house lighting – and with the curtains closed, the monsters can’t be seen inside the house.

These recycled cardboard decorations cost next to nothing – and don’t they look great? I’d happily keep them up all year round, irrespective of what the neighbours would think…

I love how simple that is and how awesome it looks! I live on the 4th floor, so I’m not sure if anyone would see it from up here, but it’s such a cute idea with cardboard or construction paper and some creativity it could be totally easy to pull off!
