The upside to sharing your house with some ghosts is that you probably don’t need any haunted house ideas when October rolls around. But for those who (thankfully) live in spirit-free homes, Halloween means a scramble for clever and simple, but spooky haunted house ideas to upgrade a perfectly happy, ghost-free residence into something a little more possessed. For these fortunate souls, Real Simple scoured social media for easy DIY projects that will make any home haunted. Here, four of the best haunted house ideas that even the craft-cursed can pull off. We like them because they’re not too gory or horrific—just a little unsettling. Incorporate each into your home for a subtle scare or try more than one for a truly frightful experience.
