It’s halloween month which means that it’s now perfectly acceptable to decorate your house all spooky and crazy!
Here’s how to give your home some Halloween flair:
Decorate with sweets and treats. You’ll likely be stocking up on sweet treats for next weekend anyways, so why not put those sweets and chocolates to good use? Try using sweets for subtle Halloween decor. You can find lots of inspiration on Pinterest on ways to include sweet treats around your house for a little more Halloween decor.
Carve your pumpkins. There’s so many cool things that you can carve into pumpkins these days. You could even skip the face carving and simply take out the pumpkin ‘guts’, fill your pumpkin with ice and use it as a drink cooler for any Halloween parties that you have planned.
Use mason jars. You can do so much with mason jars. You could wrap bandages around them to make them look like mummys or you can paint them different Halloween themed colours.
Decorate with scary photos. For a spooky upgrade, replace all your family photos with edited or creepy photos. You could print some off that you find online or you could edit your own family photos if you’re good at that kind of thing.
Use orange and black. The simple way to incorporate Halloween into your home is to bring in lots of orange and black. Switch up your pillows, bring in some coloured decorations, use orange balloons, etc. Almost anything can be swapped for orange and black in your home.
Paint pumpkins. The big trend in Halloween and fall decor this year is no-carve, painted pumpkins. A no-mess, and creative alternative to the traditional Jack-o-lantern, you can turn a pumpkin into anything you dream up. Once again, you can find lots of inspiration on Pinterest.
Use Halloween prints. A subtle and sneakily spooky way to bring Halloween home, is to use printed quotes or photos. Whether you’re creating gift bags, decorating for a party of just getting your home into the spirit of Halloween, there are hundreds of free printables online. If you don’t find any free printables that you like, you could look on etsy for prints and support small businesses.
