Halloween Décor Ideas

Bloody Candles

For a straightforward, scary piece of Halloween décor, take a red candle and melt it over top of a white one so the red wax runs down like blood.


Cheesecloth Spirits

Glue cheesecloth onto foam mannequin heads (available at wig shops) and hang them from the ceiling. Spook them up with a fan on low speed.

Cronenberg Horror Classics

My older brother introduced me to David Cronenberg’s movies when we were teenagers in the 90s, and he recently encouraged me to watch Shivers again, which I did. What a wild movie! Nobody else can bring to cinema what Cronenberg brings, both intellectually and visually. Curious to learn more about Cronenberg’s horror classics, I watched the video below that ranks them. It led me to watch The Brood, which, to me, was not as good as I had expected. I prefer Cronenberg’s other horror gems like Dead Ringers and The Fly to that one.

Paper Cup Ghosts

I love the simplicity of this Halloween craft. All you need are some white paper cups and a black marker, which are easy enough to get at a dollar store. Turn the cups upside down, draw goofy ghost faces and—voilà!
