It can be fun to go out on Halloween, but it can be even more fun to stay in and create a scary space in your own home. Whether you are hosting a party, or just expecting some costumed trick-or-treaters to stop by, you can have fun and make a spooky impression by turning a room of your home, your back garden or front porch into a scary-cool walkthrough experience! To get you started, check out the ideas below.

It’s amazing how well this one comes together
Classy, Creepy Front Porch
Front-Lawn Light Shows!
This kind of decorating is not for the faint of heart, but in one way, it IS simple; all of these light shows rely simply on—you guessed it—great lights. There are simple house "Christmas" style lights, special party strobe lights, dancing figure and projector lights. Mix and match them and your house could look like one of these (with a little elbow grease) too!
A Haunted Pirate Basement!
This is a fun idea that would be perfect for a Halloween party—turn your cellar into the deck of a Pirate Ship: You'll need a couple of full-size skeletons, plenty of skulls, an eye patch or two, gold booty, some old sails (rip them up!) and at least one pirate flag to hoist! Need some inspiration? Watch The Goonies again!
A Spooky Back Garden!
Taking trick-or-treaters through a creepy back garden display before they get their sweets is the ultimate Halloween treat. First off, you're going to need some tombstones (you can go silly or spooky or a combination of both for the epitaphs). Next, you might want a dry ice machine—to create plenty of fabulous fog in your back garden.
