There is something for every household to create some creepy Halloween decor that is definitely going to spook, from an easy Ghost Graveyard Room, to a Witches Spell Room and your classic Haunted House.

All these spook-tacular Halloween decorations are available at Big W.

Ghost Graveyard Room

Step 1: If you have an air con, turn it up high for some creepy coldness, or grab a fan to create a breeze highlighting an unseen ‘presence’ (ghosts).

Step 2: Cover the couches with dark fabrics like sheets or tablecloths to prep for the gravestones.

Step 3: Pull apart some cotton wool to create some DIY cobwebs and hang it from the windows and walls.

Step 4: Dim or turn off all the lights in your bedroom or lounge room to gauge the ultimate spooky effect.

Step 5: It’s time to fill your graveyard with gravestones, skeletons and spiders!



Haunted Room

Step 1: To get the haunting off to a killer start, find a creepy Halloween playlist on your preferred music app.

Step 2: Grab a red piece of clothing and throw it over your bedside lamp or swap out your white light globes with some bloody red ones.

Step 3: Rip up some old white bed sheets and either paint or dip them in red dye, hanging the strips across the entrance of your bedroom to warn your fellow muggles.

Step 4: Scatter the floor with eyeballs, by panting a black pupil on some old golf balls or ping pong balls – be sure to watch your step.

Step 5: The haunted room is now ready to be filled with vampires, ghosts and zombies!


Witches Spell Room

Step 1: Place your carved pumpkin or some drinking glasses from the kitchen on the floor and insert some tea lights – ready to cast your first spell.

Step 2: Gather your favourite treats and scatter them over a table, making sure you have all the right ingredients for your witchtastic potions.

Step 3: Grab the biggest bowl in the kitchen, fill it with water, throw in some glow sticks and watch your cauldron simmer.

Step 4: Get dressed for the occasion – dig into your wardrobe to find something that resembles a cape and cackle the night away.

Step 5: Invite all your fellow witches and their black cats to join your new coven – blow out the tea lights and watch your cauldron come to life.
