Halloween Haunted Home Decor EASY Tricks and Tips!

When October comes around and you see the bats, witches, and spider webs, do you want to skip right ahead to Christmas? 

I have to admit I was one of those people. I really struggled to decorate for Halloween when my kids were little. I think it was because I really didn’t like the color orange and just did not know how to make it work in my house. 

I have a lot of fun with it now mostly because I realize I just don’t have to use the color orange and I know I can pull neutral colors into my decor.  

Here are some fun ideas to spice up your Halloween holiday decor! Be sure to scroll down and find the FREE HALLOWEEN PRINTABLES
Baby Boo Pumpkins

Pumpkins are a must-have for Halloween. Little baby boos are fun to decorate with and you can usually find them in any grocery store. They are affordable and so cute! This year I was able to find some with long winding stems that are pretty cool looking! They are perfect for tablescapes or place settings. 


Seasonal Throw Pillows

Find a great throw pillow that will go with your decor. This is such a fun way to decorate and there are so many options with pillows. 

You can often purchase pillow covers, which can be stored easily when the holiday is over, leaving the pillow form to be reusable for the next holiday. These fun pillows are from www.krumpetshome.com.

DIY Bottles

Save any size bottle that you like—cider, wine, etc., any bottle will do for this project.

1. Wash and dry the bottle
2. Print out the desired label 
3. Cut label so it is ready to be applied to your bottle
4. Apply Modge Podge to back of label and place on the bottle and press down, then apply Modge Podge to the top of label

Don’t worry if the Modge Podge goes directly onto the bottle—it will dry clear. Let it dry completely. That’s it! You are done! So simple.

I printed these labels from Pinterest. There are so many free labels, and I’ve included a few down below. Click the link and get your FREE PRINTABLE HALLOWEEN labels!

Thrift Shop Old Books
I love to find old books at thrift shops or garage sales to use in my Halloween decor. Try to find books with haunted titles in them or scary titles. Anything with clowns or mysteries will do well too. 

Group books together or tie them up with twine and lay them near other Halloween decor!  Try going through your children’s books . . . you never know, maybe they have something you can use. It costs next to nothing. 

These books you see in the picture were 50 cents each at a garage sale. 

And that’s all there is to it! What decor tricks or treats do you use?
