You probably do a great job of decorating the outside of your house for Halloween. I know I do, but a problem that I had is that when the trick or treaters rang the doorbell to get candy and the front door was opened, all of the Halloween themeing stopped. This year I fixed this problem and continued the Halloween atmosphere inside when the front door was opened.
In this Instructable, I am going to show you how to continue a really good Halloween atmosphere inside of your house. At the bare minimum, all you need are some white sheets, something to hang them with, an oscillating fan, and a black light, and then youâre ready to goâ¦
Step 1: Hang the sheets...
Hang the sheets. I hung my sheets using a system that was bought at an Ikea. It consists of two anchors that go into the walls, and a metal cable that goes between the two anchors. I strung the sheets along this cable and made sure everything was nice and secure.
Step 2: Set up black light
Set up the black light. The way my house is setup, I have the front door open up to a raised tile area, and then off to the side, there is a lower computer room. It is in this room where I put the black light. This way, the trick or treaters couldnât actually see the black light bulb itself, but they could see the glow it produced on the white sheets. I always feel it is very bad for your atmosphere when setting up a haunted house to allow trick or treaters to see black lights. They hurt your eyes. The ultraviolet light is actually eating away layers of anything that glows. Thatâs why black lights making things glow, and if you notice, the whites of your eyes glow in black light. I donât like looking at them for this reason, and besides it is better to have the glow coming mysteriously from some unknown source rather than from a seen light fixture.
