Halloween Decor Ideas
Here are some of the best Halloween Decor Ideas out there – and they can all be done pretty quickly! Every year, you can buy a little something new, and before you know it, you’ll be ready each and every year once October rolls around.
1. Hang a Witch’s Broom
Every witch needs a place to hang her broom when the day is done!
2. Make a Halloween Banner
Make this diy Halloween Banner and drape it across your mantel or doorway!
3. Hang Floating Witch Hats and Candles
Take a queue from Harry Potter and hang some floating witch hats and candles from your ceiling.
4. Add some fairy lights.
Fairy Lights have a way of making things look better. So take any Halloween decor item you have and throw some fairy lights on it. This makes a spooky moment for your shelves and tables. You can also add fairy lights to your you’ve been boozed packages!
5. Give your Plants and Pumpkin Eyes.
This is a super fun craft and one that your kids can get involved in! Take some styrofoam balls, wood skewers, and acrylic paint and create “eyes” for pumpkins and plants. My kids laughed hysterically at this.
While it might not scare people, maybe it will make them laugh. And we could all use more laughs.
6. Make a Giant Spiderweb.
A giant spiderweb on your front exterior is the perfect way to welcome trick or treaters. Learn how to make a giant spiderweb here. Don’t forget the spider!
7. Create a Trail of Spiders on the Wall.
A trail of black spiders is a fun way to fill up your walls for Halloween. Kids love hanging them too. You can hang these with mounting putty, it sticks to the wall and removes cleanly. Museums use it!
8. Hang Halloween Art.
You can find free spooky art on public domain sites. Search for skulls, witches and more and you’ll find a whole treasure trove of free printable art.
9. Spray Paint Some Branches.
Spray paint some sticks black and stick them in a vase. Or, spray paint a grapevine wreath black and add some crows or spiders or mice. Finally, add some orange fairy lights. You can also buy them like this!
10. Hang some Cobwebs across an open Window or Door
Stretch some faux spider webbing across an open doorway, as they did here at this pretty pumpkin patch.
11. Add Mice to your Pumpkins.
12. Drape Creepy Cloth Over your Furniture
Love this! A couch looks so much spookier when covered with ripped lace or netting.
13. Create a Pathway Ghosts and Pumpkins.
I don’t know any kid who wouldn’t want to collect candy here. A clothesline holds a ghost, a skeleton, and an old shutter. Carved pumpkins light the way.
14. Frame some Lace and Spiders.
Having a party and struggling with wall decor? Frame some doilies or lace and put a fake spider on them. Looks great!
15. Spray Paint Faux Succulents Black.
Take some of those inexpensive faux succulent plants with pots and spray paint them black.
16. Fill your Fireplace with Pumpkins.
Fill your fireplace with pumpkins and add black accents to your mantel – a single feather in a glass jar looks surprisingly eerie. And so simple.
17. Hang Giant Spiders on Your Home.
Giant Spiders hung across your house make it look extra spooky!
18. Paint Carved Pumpkins Black.
Pumpkins painted black and lit up at night look so cool! Don’t you think?

Tons of skulls and chains and a few pumpkins make for a haunted front entrance!
