If you deck the halls at Christmas, do you spook the halls at Halloween? I didn’t get “in” to decorating for Halloween until last year when my son said, “Mom when are you going to decorate the house for Halloween?” He had been at a friends house and seen some cute decorations there so he was hoping we could get some at our place. We went to a couple home decor stores and craft stores and picked out a few decorations. He was so happy. One of my happy memories growing up was when my mom decorated our house for the holidays (Christmas being the biggest – of course). I decided to make Halloween a bigger/funner decorating holiday and have really enjoyed making crafts and getting decorated for Halloween. Now that my baby’s birthday is right before Halloween, I can see Halloween taking on a life of it’s own!
Here are some of the decorations I’ve put up around the house this year. I have a couple of “areas” of decor and this is my “traditional Halloween colors decorations” area.
I picked up this spider last year at a local home decor store. The legs of the spider are bendable. I wrapped the legs around the bowl to make my “rest of the year decor” easily turn into a DIY Halloween decoration.
Halloween Bucket List
I designed this to match with my traditional Halloween color decorations area and made it available as a free printable. I think this Halloween bucket list is a great way to remember the fun things to do to celebrate Halloween.
DIY Halloween Decor – Halloween Tree
This DIY Halloween Tree was an easy craft to add to the decor. I love the colors and designs.
Halloween Family Pictures
I like to use pictures that match the season/holiday in my decorating. I think it helps tie everything together and keep things fresh.
Halloween Decor Table Arrangement
I like how this table came together. The purple witch hat is sitting on a tall candlestick.
Halloween Tree & Witch Hat
Spider in the Spider Web
This simple black spider web sits over the mirror with a glittery spider chillin’ on the web.
Dressed Up Witches Broom
I found these glittery black witches brooms at Hobby Lobby. They looked kind of plain, so I dressed them up with some coordinating ribbon.
Black & Purple Glitter Candles
I found these fantastic candles at Michaels.
Christmas Ornaments for Halloween Decor!?
I pulled out some of my whimsical Christmas ornaments to use as basket filler filler for my Spider basket. Love it!
I LOVE the color of the balls in the basket!

Love your decor! Love when green and purple is incorporated instead of just orange and black. Great Job
