Do you live in an area full of little trick or treaters?! Decorating your house can be a great way to get into the Halloween spirit... But make sure you know the safest way to make your house look spooky!
- Make sure your house is well lit - if inviting people round to celebrate, you need to ensure whichever lighting you're using will allow people to easily navigate where they're going.
- Make sure any wires or cables from lighting are kept out of walking paths - therefore reducing the trip hazard!
- Use candles in pumpkins - if you're expecting a vast amount of little trick or treaters, opting out of candles in pumpkins might be a good idea. Instead, you could go for battery operated electronic candles, which give the same effect!
- Use a variety of plug-in string lights - again, opting for battery operated string lights might work better! Plug-in string lights may require a vast amount of extension cables and use a high voltage of power if all are plugged in together.
