Tips for Halloween Decorating

Try out these Halloween decorating ideas:

Un-Decorate Before You Decorate: Take your normal picture frames off the walls and decorations off all the surfaces including tables, counters, and shelves. When you add Halloween decorations on top of your normal décor, the result looks cluttered and confused. Put all the focus on your Halloween decorations by making them the center of attention. Fill empty spots that other picture frames left by hanging Halloween plates or spooky decorations.

Focus On One Color Scheme: A classic orange and black color scheme for your decorations always looks great. You could also try a creepy black and green color scheme or go sophisticated with black and silver. Try not to mix more than three of these bold colors. This will keep your house looking put together and sophisticated.

Decorate With Pumpkins: We all love classic Jack-O-Lanterns, but pumpkins can be used in many different ways for Halloween décor. For a more chic look, try painting pumpkins, or using glue with glitter or buttons. Pumpkins can be used outside as a welcome sign outside after being painted, or inside as table or mantelpiece décor. Try painting a pumpkin with chalkboard paint and keeping a countdown to Halloween!

Use Candles: Candles are a great way to set a creepy mood for All Hallow’s Eve or the night of a Halloween party. White candles look spookiest and are easy to find. Mix and match different sizes and heights of candles and tealights on a mantle or as the centerpiece on a table. Dim the lights and the candle glow will give all the rest of your decorations a scary flickering shadow!

Use these Halloween home decoration tips to spark your creativity and expand on your favorite Halloween decorations. Happy Halloween!
