It’s the spookiest time of the year! Halloween is upon us, and folks are upping their decor game with each passing day. Making your home as spooky as possible is a long-honored tradition in many households and one that has evolved significantly over time. The introduction of e-commerce shopping is one of the largest contributors to this change, as well as the overall aesthetic of Hallows Eve. No matter what your taste may be, the perfect petrifying decorations are out there. We’ll dive into some great online items as well as do-it-yourself projects sure to send a chill up any neighbor's spine.
If you’re loving the DIY approach to all things decorating, there are some great options out there to give the space any Halloween aesthetic. If you’re going for a more elegant, artistic approach, make a front walkway display of black and white floral pumpkins. All that's needed are some pumpkins - either fake or real is up to you, paint, glue, and some faux flowers. Most of which can be bought at any local craft store. The first step is to paint your pumpkin, we advise a clean black color, but that is totally up to the creator. After it dries, arrange your faux flower in a whimsical shape along with the pumpkins. Try a few different ideas before gluing anything into place. Once you’re decided, grab the glue and solidify the display. This easy-to-do project will be the talk of the street once you put it out for the world to see.
Spook out any guest that uses your bathroom with eyeball hand soap dispensers! This project is truly a no-hassle one. All you'll need is a mason jar or clear container of your choice, a dispenser lid, hand soap, and eyeball ping pong balls - you can even find glow in the dark options on amazon.
One last DIY accent to set your home apart is a haunted foliage wreath. There's plenty of leaf debris this time of year to scoop up and make into a spooky wreath for the front door. You’ll need to spray paint the leaves black (or any color of your choice) then spin together with some twine to create your wreath. Add some fake webs or spiders to give it an additional creepy crawly effect. This wreath will pair extremely well with the floral pumpkin display along any entryway.
If you want to make the house look all types of scary, but don’t have the time or energy to make your decor, fear not! The Web offers plenty of great places to order some fun and unique Halloween decor. Etsy is the ultimate one-stop-shop for several unique finds when it comes to home decor. It’s the witching season! Put hocus pocus on and place these Silhouette Witches along your mantel. Afterward, add a subtle accent to every room in your home by buying a pack of the Votive Ghost Candles.
When it comes to Halloween, many people intend to get their home looking as scary as possible. There are some great products out there to get any guest spooked. Make your walls come to life this year with creepy hands that can be mounted directly onto your tables, walls, and ceilings. To keep in the theme, these bloody handprints can be placed inside of a window frame, adding to your house of horrors. If there is one universal truth I stand by, it’s that clowns are creepy. Add a Pennywise Wreath to your front door that will make trick or treaters stop in their tracks.
If your style is a bit more classic Autumnal, there’s plenty of products to choose from. My favorite finds this season is this Felt Pumpkin Garland that adds the perfect accent to any room. Add a bit of artistry this October with a pumpkin-themed Canvas Print made with pastels. Add the ultimate centerpiece to your Fall collection this year with the Fall-themed Wood Log from Williams Sonoma. Wreaths are the perfect accessory for every season, especially Fall and Winter. Finalize your October decor masterpiece with this Dried Pumpkin Wreath.
