Spooooooky Self-Storage Tips
It can be easy to get carried away with the dark and scary side of Halloween decorating. It is important, however, to make sure your home and garden remain safe – especially if you’re expecting visits from ghostly ghouls or wicked witches.
Keep walkways and paths clear of stray pumpkins and lanterns and securely tape down any power cords to eliminate any tripping hazards. If you’ve got hanging decorations, think about using DIY tombstones or straw bales to act as a barrier and keep trick or treaters out of harm’s way.
Who likes Pumpkins? Well another top tip, avoid using candles! Whilst a glowing Jaco-O’-Lantern may Spook up your home to Trick and Treaters, using a naked flame candle can be dangerous – we encourage that you use a battery powered candle or light will do the trick at a Risk-Free convenience.
Decorating the house doesn’t have to be difficult, even if you don’t have the luxury of lots of outdoor space to create your own scary set up.
One of the easiest areas to temporarily transform is your front door. Use paper, tape and cardboard to update your door and give trick or treaters a truly spooky welcome. It’s likely you have all the materials you’ll need, without even realising it – proving that giving your home a Halloween makeover is both easy and achievable on a budget. Plus, once the night is over, you can simply remove the tape, pop your decorations into one of our cardboard boxes, and store away somewhere safe for next year.
