Do you know why people celebrate Halloween?

Each year on 31 October, people dress up in silly costumes, hit the streets, and attend parties with friends. 

However, where did this tradition come from? 

There are no exact records of the origin, but we do know that Halloween takes place on the eve of the Western Christian feast of All Hallow’s Day. 

It could likely have its roots in Celtic or Pagan festivals, and during this time, donning of scary costumes, carving up jack-o-lanterns and tellings ghost stories are the usual practices. 

Some even visit “haunted” attractions in order to give themselves a good fright! 

What kind of Halloween decoration is there?

The good old jack-o-lantern typically takes center stage, but there are so many more Halloween decor that you can use. 

As you know, I am crazy about wall decor, so Halloween wall decor is my domain. 

There are so many things you can put up, such as vampire bats, witches, spooky paintings, mummies, and skull candles. 

And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. As I always say, you are only limited by your own creativity and bravery! 

How do you hang Halloween decorations without damaging walls?

The thing is, Halloween happens only once a year, so you obviously will not keep them up for long. In this case, what is the best way to hang them up without causing any damage to your walls?

Well, firstly, you can make use of existing hooks. Some of your current wall decors will have to be taken down, so that’s that perfect spot to put up some of your Halloween wall art or what have you. 

The other thing I like to use is removable hooks, velcro, or tape. You can easily get them at Wayfair or Amazon or hardware shops, and after using them, you can take them off without leaving a mark or scratch. 

Compare that to using sticky tape and pins, this is way better.

What kind of DIY Halloween Wall Decor can I make?

I am not exactly a master at craftwork, but simple designs can be made right in the comfort of your home quickly. 

Two of the most common animals seen during Halloween is the spider and the bat. 

While I can’t make a spider, I do know where to get them. 

You can stick them onto your walls to create that creepy-crawly feeling to scare your guests! 

As for bats, head here and print out a few different designs. 

You can stick them to pretty much anything and remove them easily later with the removable tape.

Better yet, stick them on the wall mirrors around the house and give visitors a good scare!
