The next level of DIY Hallowe'en decorations

Staff writers
October 31, 2012 — There's no better way to get in the Hallowe'en spirit than by decorating your home with ghoulish and spooky do-it-yourself decorations. Hector Turner and Chris Ainsworth, of the Canadian Haunters Association do that -- and much, much more.

For Turner and Ainsworth, it's a year-round event, taking Hallowe'en decorating to a whole new level.

They spend countless hours building and preparing their one-of-a-kind creations. But that is half the work. It takes them about three full days to transform their house and yard into a full-blown Hallowe'en spectacle.

As for people who criticize them for spending too much money on the holiday, Hector has this to say to them: "Same as other people like sports and other different things. This is what I like." 

This year, however, proved to be a bit of a challenge for Turner, Ainsworth and many others who decorate their homes for Halloween. As the remnants of Hurricane Sandy moved in, with heavy rain and lashing winds, these homeowners had to take down their decorations to keep them from blowing away.

Be sure to check your Hallowe'en forecast and follow these tips on how to stay warm while trick-or-treating this year.
