The fall is here. Autumn is thriving. And Halloween is right around the corner. When it comes to decorating, you have so many choices as to what type of theme you want to go for, and you can even get creative with different locations in your home. From the front porch to your bathroom, even your staircase and windows could use some spook. Why not, right? Here’s a complete guide to spookifying your home and fulfilling your dark or bright dreams. It’s not just the kids that get to have fun.
FIRST IMPRESSIONS ARE EVERYTHING
The first step to decorating is your front porch, where all your trick-or-treaters will come. It’s your optimal chance to showcase your love for Halloween and you can really be free to express your dark side, or you can choose to dress up your already contemporary décor with dainty additions and painted pumpkins. That’s right, carving isn’t the only way to dress up a pumpkin anymore! Some ideas for your front porch include gnarled faux trees on each side of your door, lanterns with orange lights for spell casting after the witching hours, bats along your doorway, spider webs over your bushes, or wrapping up your door like a mummy. You can really let your creative juices flow with this décor because you have the freedom to dress up the house with your personality intact.
INSIDE THE DUNGEON
Okay, your house isn’t really a dungeon. More like a sanctuary, where you get to feel comfortable. So when it comes to decorating the inside of your home, opt for a palette for easy shopping. You don’t need to go crazy inside, cause who likes seeing spiders everywhere. BUT, you can choose a palette that matches your current décor, then spice it up with some spook or foliage. Spellbooks, witches brews, skulls, and poisoned apples should do the trick. If you don’t want to opt for a spook, you can go for lush autumn florals and foliage with lanterns and an assortment of pumpkins. These types of decorations can also hold up until Thanksgiving (big plus).
A LITTLE PERSONAL SPELL NEVER HURT ANYBODY… RIGHT?
For Halloween lovers, the best part probably has to be simply looking around and witnessing your prized work. Showcasing your décor and sharing it with loved ones is the best. Don’t forget to add your own personal flair to your décor. A little DIY never goes unnoticed. If you’re a wine lover- repurposing your old wine bottles with matte black paint and scrawly handwritten labels turn your recycling into tasteful potion bottles you can place on your buffet table or throughout your home. The possibilities are endless when it comes to Halloween because you can let your personality shine. Whether you’re in the mood for spook, humor, fright, or dainty décor, all it takes is a little creativity and you’re off on your broom to the moon.
