Halloween is a perfect way to use your DIY skills to make your own decorations and hang them. These tips will help make sure your Halloween decorations stay up through the scary season, from hanging scary lights to ghouls and goblins, and provide a fun thrill for your wee guests who are trick-or-treating.
You’ve probably noticed that Halloween decorations have seen a definite uptick in recent years. The decorations in our neighborhood were restricted to jack-o-lanterns on front porches when I was a child, and maybe the odd skeleton or creepy spider web.

Celebrants would light bonfires and dress in frightening costumes in an attempt to confuse the spirits and ward them off.
