Halloween is right around the corner! Australian's haven't always been big adopters of the American holiday, but in recent years, it has become more and more popular, with people embracing trick-or-treating, carved pumpkins, spooky decorations, and Halloween themed parties. In this post, we share some ideas on how you can decorate your roof this to celebrate Halloween.
Spiders on the Roof
Ack! Spiders! One way to effectively bring the eek in your street is to put arachnids on your roof.
You could use small but visible spiders around your front door, but to really make an impact, think about putting huge ones on your roof. You can put up spider webs all over your roof with the giant spiders resting on it; making it look as if the spiders are crawling up your walls and on your roof. To make things extra scary, you can add a “spider meal”, wrapped up in its webs.
For most people, Halloween isn't Halloween without lollies, pumpkins, and most importantly, skeletons. There are a lot of things you can do with skeletons as decorations.
If you want something Halloween-y with a funny twist, you can put the skeletons in a position to look like they’re climbing up your roof: one skeleton holding onto the side of the roof, while the other is struggling to reach the first skeleton’s bony hand (see image attached).
If you want something spooky on the other hand, you can dress your skeleton to portray your favourite horror character or even incorporate some scary props (like fake blood) to put on your skeleton and display it in a sitting or hanging position.
Witches on Brooms
Witches are another Halloween classic and they're sure to make a creepy Halloween roof decorations. You can make your roof look like there’s a witch hovering above it, or you can hang witches on brooms near your front door. Whatever you choose, they're sure to catch attention from the street.
