To make a Halloween haunted mirror, first, prepare a vintage wall mirror. The round frame is the best to express a downright creepiest haunted-house theme. The best place is your bathroom, where the door and the mirror are on opposites, so you can create the most unexpected and creepiest effect. Hang a skull or put a creepy photo behind the door.

To make the chilling spider decoration, the first step is to set up an antique light lamp. Use the linen fabric with a light color so that the spiders can be easy to hang. Set up a dim yellow light rather than a bright light to make the scene more realistic and scary. Then attach some plastic spiders on the surface. If you choose one with a glossy lamp outside, simply stick them with the glue. Remember to place them unevenly. Add some spiders on your wall, lampstand, table, and other Halloween decorations, revealing to a more naturally haunted feeling.
