There are many things that make the hair stand up on the back of our necks. Sometimes is a simple glimpse out of the corner of our eye. Was there something there or was our mind just playing a trick on us? Every so often, the shadows are so much scarier than the monsters.
That’s why, when it comes to your spooky Halloween decorations, less is more. Make everyone that passes by your home do a double take this Halloween season with the help of these window silhouettes. From staring eyes and reaching hands to the ominous reaper and smirking face, you can create a spooky scene in no time. We know a lot of people are short on time and prefer to hit the internet for their Halloween Decorations, but this project can be that little extra effort to help you stand out from the neighbors.
Window decorations are the perfect way to get in the spirit whether you’re allowed to decorate the outside of your house or not. With a few supplies, you’ll transform your windows. Add a bit of creepy drama by using our colorful LED projector lights inside to show off these ominous silhouettes.
