October is here, which means it’s time to get ready for everyone’s favorite spooky holiday. Get your home ready for Halloween by making simple but fun themed decorations. So clear out a spot in your Liv Ahwatukee apartment and pick a decoration to fill it! We’ve got ideas to inspire you.

Vinyl Wall Silhouettes

These were originally designed for garage doors, but you can make them work on your wall just as easily. All you need are some sheets of adhesive vinyl, a pair of scissors, and a little bit of time! Cut out a majestic buck looking out over a pumpkin patch while a colony of bats soars into the sky behind him — or whatever you like!

Bewitching Halloween Pumpkin

If you’re not a fan of carving pumpkins, decorate yours another way! This idea is adorable because it matches the theme of the season and is simple to create. Buy a green pumpkin at a craft store or even a local pumpkin patch. See what you can make from your own materials for the hat and the face or head to the store for a few simple pieces to bring your witch to life.

Haunted Terrariums

This is a fun idea that adds a festive twist to a decoration you may already have on a shelf or counter. Find a jar you like to make it and fill it with greenery and sticks from a store or outside. Make a ghost with tissue paper and make your own scene with the other materials listed in the post for a look you’ll love.

Floating Halloween Ghost

You’ve made your haunted terrarium and filled it with a mini ghost; now put a life-size one in an unobtrusive spot of your apartment for extra effect!
