Decorate your furniture for Halloween in 4 easy steps!


At 11p.m. I was all set to sit down in my peaceful house (which is rare) and write my first Halloween blog. I flipped on the TV for some background noise and what’s the first thing I hear? Jingle bells! A Christmas commercial with Santa announcing a layaway sale. I’m sorry… are we not celebrating Halloween this year? We’ve already seemed to skip over Thanksgiving, but now Halloween? Well not in my house. At my house it’s pumpkins, turkeys and then Santa. In that order with no exceptions. So, here are a few ideas to get your home ready for a spooky good time!

Steps to make your furniture look creepy, old and even scary:

1. Cover your couches, chairs and other pieces of furniture with white sheets. Try and make the home look abandoned by tattering the sheets a bit with a few holes.

2. Cover end tables with old, black table cloths or take an old black sheet and cut jagged edges on it.

3. Drape your bookshelves or entertainment units with fake spiderwebs.

4. Fake skulls are not my personal favorite, but they really do add a very spooky effect to any piece of furniture.

Now while you’re covering up that old sofa with a sheet, think about this. As the last trick or treater leaves your house and you turn off the porch light, the hustle and bustle of the holiday season officially gets underway. The countdown to Christmas begins and for many of us, the stress levels instantly start to rise. Why not get a jump on the things, by shopping for new furniture now. Order that sofa early so it’s in place and ready for holiday entertaining in your home. Or, invest in a new mattress so at the end of a busy day of Christmas shopping you can fall into your nice, cozy bed and relax.
