Decorating for Halloween can be challenging when you live in a small apartment. Participating in those neighborhood competitions of “who has the scariest house” or “who has the largest Halloween decorations,” and most of the time, entertaining trick-or-treaters is out of the question. But, having a small apartment does not mean the end to your Halloween spirit.
There are several ways you can maintain the Halloween spirit in your home with decorations. Whether it’s for a small get together to watch scary movies with friends or your significant other, or just to be in the spirit of the holiday, you can still decorate your home for Halloween.
Here are a few small, unique and contemporary Halloween decorations you can create yourself:
