I know it might feel like it’s too early to be decorating for Halloween, but actually, Halloween decor is selling out so quickly, and I don’t want you to miss out. Finding “spooky” decor that blends in with your already-lovely home aesthetic, rather than masks, is trickier said than done. So, I thought it would be fun to show you how to create Halloween moments with some not-so-scary decor. Starting with the front door…
Hang a Haunted Wreath
I have it on record that I don’t like wreaths (except for Christmastime). This is more of a personal preference than me dictating what you should or shouldn’t hang on your door. But… when I saw this Halloween wreath with tangled twigs and bats, I couldn’t help myself. Don’t expect me to hang a new wreath for each season, but hanging a spooky wreath is an excellent way to transition the front porch from fall to Halloween.
Pumpkins All Season Long
Pumpkins double as fall and Halloween decor, and if you stock up on faux pumpkins, they’ll last you from September through November. Of course, you can’t go wrong with carving jack-o-lanterns, but that’s one of my least favorite activities. Anybody else?
Focus on The Mantle
Shop the haunted living room
Rather than re-decorating your entire living room, you can spookify the mantle with some ghostly garland and drippy tapered candles. Orange and black are a classic Halloween choice, but all black would be even more moody.
Ghost Garland | Gold Candlesticks | Aged Brass Candlesticks | Orange Tapers | Black Tapers | Mirror | Framed Art
Now, if you look really closely, you might be able to spot some bats drawn on the picture frame glass with an expo marker. This is such a simple, free way to make any framed art haunted, and the good news is it’s not permanent!
Swap Your Frame TV Art
Shop the spooky bonus room
Swapping your Frame TV art is the quickest, most cost-effective way to keep up with seasonal and holiday decor. How cute are these ghost portraits? (Tip: Most smart TVs have the capability to display art nowadays, so check your options even if you don’t have the official Frame TV). I’m obsessed with all the haunted art below.
