Halloween conveniently sits right at the perfect time to get cosy and prepare yourself for the spooky season and celebrate the start of this time of year, so here are some ways that you can prepare your apartment with the best decorations. Oh, and how to settle yourself for the boo-tiful holiday of Halloween.

They have now moved online and have a fabulous range of holiday buys to get your apartment looking ever so flash it’ll give passers-by ‘pumpkin’ to talk about. You never know what you can find on their website so take a deep dive and see what tickles your fancy.
Want a creative way to give your home a Halloween feel without splashing the cash? Well, make it all about the art! If you already have wall art up in your home, replace these with Halloween-themed prints – there are many freely accessible online that you just need to print yourself at home, and Halloween prints can make a huge impact on your walls.
One simple and affordable way of making your apartment ‘haunt’ it, is decorating your own balloons. A simple pack of balloons can cost you less than a coffee and can have a huge impact. By using a permanent marker and bringing out your inner child, allow yourself to go crazy and decorate the balloons to either be left to sit or be hung up around your apartment! Quick, easy, and cost-effective.
Cobwebs or String? We’ll never know!
Sometimes wool is not only good for making your own scarf – it’s time to make your own cobweb! If you have a high corner, table, or free space where you can decorate, why not make your own cobwebs with the use of your wool? It is an easy way to dress your free space up and even add in some extras – some pumpkins would do the trick.
