Aside from the holiday season, you don’t get the opportunity to decorate your home very often. When October rolls around it’s a chance to let your creativity run wild and put a spooky spin on your home!
So what exactly do you need to get started? Surprisingly, not much! Check out this list of cute Halloween decorating ideas that you can use to make your roof spooktacular.
Spiders are a staple in any Halloween decoration, and the roof is the perfect place to put them. That’s because you have a lot of space that you get to use, and you’ll need it for all of those cobwebs you’re about to hang.
The best part is that you don’t have to worry about overdoing the number of spiders you use. In fact, the more you add, the better, so we suggest you give this project a try.
The Abandoned House
This one has to be one of our favorites! There are few Halloween decorations more exciting than taking a perfectly good house and making it look abandoned.
To do this well, why not board up the windows or place some grime and cobwebs around the front of your house? Trick-or-treaters and their parents will definitely be impressed with your handiwork.
Mummies and Trolls
When trying to spookify your yard, hang a fake mummy made of toilet paper from your tree or in a coffin to spook trick or treaters when they are approaching your door.
If you’re going for a more kid-friendly approach, why not try use trolls as your Halloween decor?
These once despised creatures have now become super cute and super popular thanks to the movie industry. So the neighborhood children would absolutely love to see them around your home.
You can place a few of these little guys around the dormers of your home to give off the feeling that they’re playing hide and seek. You’ll be surprised by the number of kids that’ll come around asking for treats.
The People for Your Roofing Needs
Now that you know all about cute Halloween roof decorations, it’s important to note safety tips.
Using the Ladder
When using a ladder, make sure you have the right ladder for the job and ensure it is in good condition. You want to make sure it is set on sturdy, flat ground so you remain stable as well.
Use the Buddy System. When it comes to decorating your roof, you’ll want someone who can spot you and stay on the ground. A buddy cana help secure the ladder, carry items, and assist you in case of an emergency.
When hanging lights on your rood, try to hand them along pillars and posts to provide a structural base. Don’t ever staple lights to your roof – we recommend stringing them through plastic clips attached to your shingles, gutters, and eaves. You don’t want to puncture your shingles or gutters, because even the tiniest hole in a shingle can allow moisture to leak in and damage your roof and even cause mold to form.
Don’t walk on your roof!
To ensure the health of your roof, we recommend staying off the surface as much as possible. If it’s absolutely necessary, walk gently and wear a soft shoe with a good grip.
