It’s Halloween Eve, friends! In honor of tomorrow being Halloween, I thought I would share some images of our home decorated for the holiday. This year, I opted for simple and easy with our Halloween decor. Adding just a few touches here and there to set the mood and get us into the spirit.
Today, I’m sharing my tips for getting the look without all the hassle. Continue reading below if you’re looking for ways to maximize your look without all the work.
Simple and easy halloween decor
Fall is my husband and I’s favorite season and Halloween is one of our favorite holidays. There have been years where I’ve gone all out with our Halloween decor. Adding pumpkins, cobwebs, spiders, and skeletons galore. This year though, I wanted something a bit simpler.
With social distancing limiting get-togethers this year, I decided to focus my attention on our dining room and front porch. Opting for small seasonal touches to each. Here are my tips for simple and easy Halloween decor that makes a big impact.
Use oversized items for massive impact with minimal effort
I love to decorate our porch for the holidays and I usually start by creating beautiful fall planters for our front porch. Next, I layer in some pumpkins and gourds to bring all the fall vibes!
To kick it up a notch for Halloween the easy way, I added an oversized spider to my display. I love this guy! He’s my secret weapon at Halloween time. All I have to do is pull him from his bin in the basement and put him in place! This year, he’s standing guard over the mums. Easy peasy.
Tip number 1 for easy Halloween decorating is to look for oversized decor items. Things that can stand alone and create that wow factor without a ton of work.
Use multiples for big impact
Even though I love Halloween and LOVE to decorate for Halloween, this year I wanted to keep things simple and easy. I decided to look for ways to make a statement without all the work.
Tip number 2 for simple and easy Halloween decor is to pick one thing and use it in mass.
Bats are all the rage this year and I found these 3D black bats on Amazon for super cheap. Adding them to a corner in our dining room was a simple and easy way to decorate for Halloween. They instantly add the spooky vibes I love in under 30 mins!
Taking a single item and using it in mass to create a display is an easy way to decorate for Halloween.
I decided to take this one step further and add floating candles in our dining room as well. This is another example of how you can create a statement with a single item used in mass with minimal effort. I shared my easy DIY floating candle tutorial here if you want to check it out!
focus on one display
Tip number 3 for decorating for Halloween the simple and easy way is to pick one spot to focus your efforts on.
Since we aren’t having guests over this year I decided to focus on our dining room table and create a moody seasonal Halloween look. By choosing one area to focus on, I was able to maximize the impact of my look with fewer items in a short amount of time.
I love a creepy but chic look for Halloween. To achieve this I mixed dark green, lumpy gourds with dried mushrooms and highlighted them under cloches. Adding a couple of old amber bottles and vintage books for character and interest. A black skull candle completes the look and gives a nod to the holiday.
use what you’ve got around the house
This leads me to my final tip, and one of my favorites, for simple and easy Halloween decor. Use what you’ve got around the house.
When decorating for the holidays, I like to start with the everyday home decor items I already have on hand.
Books are one of my favorite home decor items to decorate with because they are so versatile. I pulled books in my moody fall color pallet and used them in my dining room decor. They add height to my display and highlight my skull and amber bottles.
Cloches and various containers and dishes are also perfect for incorporating into your holiday decor. I used the cloches I had on hand to highlight the gourds and dried mushrooms I purchased. I also used a brass container I had in the house to corral additional gourds to balance the display. A magnifying glass, candle snuffer, and accompanying candles rounded out my look.
Starting at home with the things you have on hand, makes decorating for Halloween super simple and easy. You can maximize your decor without spending a ton of money or time and still get a look you love!
