Halloween is just weeks away, so it’s time to start stocking up on candy, planning your costume and decking out your house for the season. Even if you’re planning to trunk or treat this year, you’ll probably want to decorate at home. You could create some DIY giant spiders for your house’s exterior, or set up a “Nightmare Before Christmas” inflatable, but you’ll eventually want to turn indoors, too.
If you want to make your home gorgeously spooky, you might want to check out some grown-up ideas for Halloween decorating.
