It may not be the first place you'd think to look for spooky supplies, but your kitchen can be a wealth of resources for hosting a DIY haunted house. Need some bloody brain matter? Check the fridge. Want to scare the kiddies with some wicked witchy makeup? Fear not, your cabinet could be brimming with just the right tools. 

There are many elements to consider when revamping your abode into a house of horrors. While you're decorating, crafting costumes, and plotting hair-raising haunts, stay focused on establishing a full sensory overload.

The sensation of a cool, ghostly breeze will send chills down their spines. And the sounds of chains scraping the floor or crunchy critters underfoot will have your guests running for the exit in no time.
