Halloween is on the way! I thought I would run over some of the best Halloween Decorating Ideas so whether you want go simple and classy or all out spooktacular, here are some great decor ideas to inspire you.
5 Halloween Decorating Ideas
1. Pumpkins As Halloween Decor
Let’s start with the basics. Everyone has got to have pumpkins! Nothing says Halloween like pumpkins so don’t forget this Halloween decorating essential. Now the questions is what you want to do with those pumpkins. Naked pumpkins are gorgeous just as they are but may also choose one of these fun pumpkin craft activities to dress them up.
I got my humongous pumpkins at Kroger and the orange one was on sale Buy 1 Get 1 Free. I am leaving my pumpkins as nature made them for now but closer to Halloween I plan to carve them (so they don’t rot before it is Halloween).
Embellish pumpkins with felt flowers.
2. Halloween Wreath
Halloween wreaths are fun additions to you Halloween decor and create a welcoming entrance or maybe a scary entrance… depending on the Halloween wreath you choose to use. You can buy one at your local craft store or you may want to make your own like these- DIY Halloween wreath with pumpkins and spiders or DIY Halloween wreath with black feathers.
3. Spooky Spider and Spider Web Halloween Decorations
I have spider webs naturally year round (LOL!) but I added to those with some great fake spider web stretched over the brick by the entrance and large scary spiders in the web. I also used a Black 30″ Posable Spider Item #H183040 which I was provided by the QVC . I just hooked his legs over my banister for a creepy greeting! (I did that after I dangled him over the back of the couch and freaked my kids out! I told them about it first but I still got a scream!)
4. Halloween Window Clings
Halloween window clings are always an easy way to add some Halloween flare! I picked up a pack of 5 Day of the Dead skull window clings at the Dollar General for just $1.
5. Halloween Lights
A string of Halloween lights is a great way to add some Halloween cheer! You can get all sorts of shapes and colors like ghosts, bats, spiders or vampires. I was provided with these cute Halloween pumpkin lights (Bethlehem Lights 20 Count Plug-in Halloween Icon) by QVC. I think that these lights may be featured on QVC network’s popular show, You’re Home with Jill®, where Jill Bauer provides fans with simple solutions for their busy lives through innovative products and a library of stress-free DIY projects.
6. Halloween Signs
The Halloween sign in the photo is store bought but you could also make your own. Spare wood from a wood palate, leftover plywood scraps, or even cardboard boxes can be turned into great bases for some paint and glitter. Then you can put any spooky message you want such as “Haunted House” or “Go back!”
