Tips on How to Decorate

Ok, so you want to make your apartment or house looke like a spooky Rocky Horror castle? Well here's what you have to do:

1. First, start off by seeing what decorations you already have around the house that you can use. Look at old Halloween boxes. That's where you'll probably find the best ideas.

2. Next, cover all your furniture with old sheets, so it looks like your in the process of moving or painting.

3. Then, turn the lights down low and light as many candles as you can. Remember to keep lit candles in a safe area, where they aren't likely to catch other decoration on fire. If you don't want to use real candles, you can always use fake flicker tea lights instead.

4. Lastly, find as much lingerie and glittery decorations as you can. Spread them out strategically throughout the rooms.
