How to create a Haunted House this Halloween

By Party Camel on September 23, 2021 in





Are you Halloween ready? This week we are sharing sensational scary and eye-catching decorations. Turn your home into a haunted house with a hall of horrors and creepy corridors. 





1. Entrance Hall Horrors


Your entrance hallway is the opening into your haunted house. Set the scene with spider- and bat balloons tied on and above doors. Give your guests a Halloween haunting with our fun zip wire ghost. Watch and enjoy as this speedy spirit zooms past your startled friends and family! It's quick and easy to set up and makes for a hilarious Halloween prank! Add hanging decorations like our foiled garlands, skull string lights or bloody creepy cloth.



2. Creepy Corridors 

Children will love a terrifying thrill when they peek around corners and zoom along corridors. We recommend hanging decorations from the ceiling, that they need to avoid bumping into. Lots of fake cobwebs and spiderwebs are a must!


To make cobwebs:

Stretch out cotton ball pieces until thin and spray with hairspray to stick them together. Place on brick walls or hang from lights.


To make a spider web:

We have ready to hang Fake Spider Web, but if you would like to make your own, this is how: Place two pipe cleaners on top of each other, and twist together to make ‘arms’ in an X shape. Twist a third pipe cleaner once around the centre of the X to make two more ‘arms’. Ensure each of the six ‘arms’ extending from the center are even. Wrap a 3 foot long piece of cotton thread around the ‘arms’ in a spiral pattern. Add a dab of glue at the thread twists to help keep them in place. Tie the thread into a knot once you’ve finished the spiral, and create a loop at the top of the cobweb for you to easily hang it. 


You can also hang an animated possessed dollpetrol skeletonchained reaper or jewelled hanging mermaid for extra effect.



3. Party Room Portraits


Haunted houses are always full of scary portraits to give lots of atmosphere. Get creative with out Halloween Tableware and use plates and napkins as decoration pieces. A few freaky faces in a frame will set the mood. Or hang up our Halloween motif frame plates featuring Dracula, Luna Witch, Midnight the black cat and a Jack o’ Lantern. Lots of candles are a great way to add a scary illumination to the portraits. Pop them into mason jars, which you can cover on the outside with cobwebs or black lace. You can also decorate toilet roll inners and tape electric candles on top for a ‘fake candle’ look, which is safer if you’ve got very little people in the house.



4. Piñata Party Time

A piñata is excellent as a decoration and a fun way to get candy too! Why not make your own as a great craft project with your kids? Here’s how to make a  Frankenstein Monster piñata  and a  Jack o’ Lantern piñata. Or, if you don’t have the time or inclination to make one, take a look at our wonderful Skull piñata with lots of shimmering holographic foil. This sensational skull and crossbones pinata is perfect for a swashbuckling party. Guests will love to loot it to get the bounty of treats (tattoos and confetti) inside.






5. Sticker Solutions


A set of Halloween themed stickers can give you a multitude of decorations – pop them onto pumpkins, candlesticks and posters. We’ve got Iron Scratch Art StickersThese fantastic Djeco Iron Scratch Art Stickers are the perfect 2-in-1 gift for crafty kids who love stickers! Scratch the stickers using the included stylet to reveal the holographic effect underneath! 



Enjoy your Halloween this year and share your scary decorations with us!
