Categories: Uncategorized | Posted: October 17, 2018

As the witching hour approaches you may be struggling with how to decorate. Decorating for Halloween does not have to be hard or expensive. Simple everyday items can be transformed into spooky settings or kid-friendly monsters.

To get things started pick a color pallet for the area you are decorating. Limiting your colors will help pull your decorations together. Then decide on your overall theme, do you want spooky elegance, haunting decay, or maybe friendly ghouls or simple sophistication is your style. Then decide who you are decorating for — just your family, party guests or trick-or-treaters and neighbors? Now decide on your scale and canvas — do you want to go big or add small simple touches? Once you have your plan try some of these simple do-it-yourself ideas to complete your look.

Here are our top 5 favorite DIY Halloween decorations ideas:

1) Decorate the Door: Play off your door color or wrap it to change the color. Then add a face, or attach cut-outs or even plastic creepy crawlies.
2) Fill the Jars: Save jars or use containers you already have and fill them with candy, Halloween items or make apothecary labels for them.
3) Add Silhouettes: Cut out some simple shapes to add a swarm of bats t o your wall, a spooky window scene or even some silly monsters. Add a little interest by playing with lighting to cast a shadow.
4) Make a Wreath: From devilishly simple to scarily easy, wreaths can be a fun way to add a little whimsy to your Halloween.
5) Hang Some Fun: Hanging decorations are fun and easy to make and can be used inside or out. From ghosts to bats to witches hats.

No matter your style – have fun and enjoy the most spooktacular holiday of the year!
