Buying Halloween Window Decor
Even your windows can get in on the Halloween celebration if you do a little homework. It may seem obvious, but do stop to make sure the Halloween decoration will fit in the window — take a moment to measure before you buy. And if the decor is lighted, double-check that there’s an electrical outlet nearby. Calculate the length of any extension cords needed, too.
It’s also a good idea to scan online reviews to see if others found the installation particularly easy or tricky, or if they experienced issues with the decorations falling off or causing damage when removed. Their insight and tips, or your informed troubleshooting, could save you time and headaches.
Two-Piece Halloween Giant Bloody Window Posters
These creepy bloody window posters, which come in a set of two, will make your home look like a haunted house plagued by demons. These posters can be trimmed to fit your windows. To install, all you have to do is spray them with a little water.
DIY Tip: Recreate the same “bloody” window writing with a red window marker.
Spider Web LED Lighted Window Décor
This Spider Web Lighted Window Decor will look great in your window at night. It features purple, green and white LED bulbs that outline the spider and its web. Just be sure there’s an outlet nearby where you can plug it in.
DIY Tip: If you already have strands of LED lights, you can make a DIY spider web in your window with help from cable ties.
Vinyl Witch Window Décor
This Vinyl Witch Window Décor from Martha Stewart comes with a light-up 3D moon for a magical Halloween display that you can put right next to your Halloween door decorations. The witch is made from vinyl that will stick to your window by itself, but the moon needs to be mounted using the included adhesive strips.
DIY Tip: If you have a vinyl cutting machine such as a Cricut, you can create the same type of vinyl silhouettes yourself.
Scary Peeper Halloween Decoration
This creepy clown is sure to give your neighbors a fright! The Scary Peeper Halloween Decoration is easy to mount to your window using the included suction cup, and its lenticular eyes seemingly follow people as they walk by. Plus, reviewers say it’s surprisingly realistic, especially from a distance.
DIY Tip: Drape a dark piece of cloth over the clown’s head to give his cloak a more realistic appearance.
