Take a look at this, the whole thing has turned into a ghostly house, like in a horror movie. The dark facade was enlivened by gold, turquoise and burgundy details and a doorbell that plays a simple tune. The house was inhabited by a white skeleton (it does not part with its pumpkin), and trees with the rest of colorful leaves grew around it. Then placed small candles on the balconies we get a remarkable decoration perfect for Halloween.
