There’s still time to get your house all decked for the spooky holiday! You have 12 full days left the little trick or treaters will be around telling jokes to get candy. I do believe that the St. Louis Halloween jokes are just our river city thing. Perhaps it’s done as well elsewhere though? I’ll have to ask around. Here in St. Louis kids have to tell a joke to the homeowner before they are given candy. My kids like to tell riddle type of joke. They also like our house to look creepy like the Haunted Mansion at Disney World or Disneyland. That ride is a family favorite! Read on to find out how I decorate the outside of our home to resemble the Haunted Mansion.
It’s super easy and super cheap to decorate with this type of theme. You seriously cannot mess this one up. *wink*
How To Decorate Like Disney’s Haunted Mansion for Halloween
First, you will want to use decor that is slightly victorian and slightly spooky. I found these great skull wall frames a few years ago at Dollar Tree. (They are still available because I just saw them at the store today. Had to get some items to decorate for trunk-or-treat later tonight!)
I also found coordinating ribbon, skulls, webs, owl, etc. All at Dollar Tree! It’s definitely my go to store for all things Halloween. (Let’s be honest. It’s my go to place for all holiday decorating.)
Then, I looped a ribbon at the top of each frame and hung ’em on the front doors.
Spider webs help create the Haunted Mansion look.
Such an easy and simple look that’s elegantly spooky. Like the Haunted Mansion!
You can never have too many skeletons.
(Jack Skellington would also be perfect for this look and go perfectly with the Disney theme.)
And of course you gotta add some Halloween lights! *wink*
