house decorations for halloween

The days are getting shorter, the weather's getting colder and the pumpkins are ripe for picking. That can only mean one thing... Halloween is nearly upon us! If you're a lover of spooky season, you might be planning to turn your home into a house of horrors - which is a job that we can help you with! Our step ladders, extension ladders, combination ladders & hop-ups can all be used to hang Halloween decorations inside and outside your home.

While you might want to create a bloody crime scene in the front garden to give your neighbours a fright, it's important that you don't become the victim of an injury yourself - so don't go dangling off the roof or climbing on a dust bin to hang your decorations. Make sure you have the right equipment on hand before you get started. We've put some ideas together, so if you're wanting house decorations for Halloween this year, we hope you'll find this useful!

Spider's web archway

If you've got trees in pots at the front of your home - you can use them to make a spooky spider's web archway. Simply place one on either side of your door, then use a step ladder to bend and secure the tops together forming an archway. Then, cover the trees in synthetic cobwebs. These can be bought at most craft shops or even your local Poundland. Most cobweb packs come with little plastic spiders, so scatter these amongst the cobwebs for an extra-scary effect.

Dangling witch feet

Want to make it look like a witch has got stuck in your tree? You can DIY a set of witches' legs by stuffing a pair of striped tights and adding shoes. Once made, grab a ladder and attach them to a branch in your tree. Hanging Halloween decorations are always a hit!

Floating witch hats

If you're planning a Halloween party, floating witch hats are an excellent Halloween decoration for your house. You should start by buying or making a series of witches' hats. Once you've got all of your witch hats ready, attach a length of fishing wire to the top of each hat. We think it looks best if you cut the fishing wire to different lengths. Then, you can grab your step stool or step ladder and hang them from the ceiling. You could even use one of our combination ladders to hang them safely up the stairs. The kids will love this Halloween decoration idea.

Lights!

Fairy lights are a wonderful Halloween house decoration because they illuminate your property and add a bit of sparkle. Better yet, they'll illuminate your driveway so that trick-or-treaters can find your property more easily. Of course, lanterns and pumpkins can be used along the path, but fairy lights look best when they're draped around your windows or dangling from trees. Make sure you use a suitable GRP ladder if you're going to be working with electricals!
