I love Halloween you guys. If it was socially acceptable to Trick-Or-Treat at the age of 29, I would. But it’s not, so I make up for it with for it with creepy movies, our annual Scare for a Cure adventure, dressing up, and decking our house out with pumpkins, ghosts, and skulls :)
To get a bigger decor bang for our buck, we like to do all the decorating in the main areas of our house instead of thinning it out over the entire square footage. Side note, you’re not going to find any Martha-Stewart-level stuff going on here. More like Target-post-Halloween-sale level stuff with a healthy dose of DIY, but we make it work y’all So why don’t we jump right in!
Our dining table got a handful of pumpkins that we painted and fixed up (tutorials here and here) to go along with our usual IKEA planters. I also used some of the felt from our old pumpkin placemats and cut out little bats to sprinkle around. I like that after Halloween, I can remove the bats but keep everything else the same for fall (until Christmas takes over!) The warm tones of our new butcher block table top give everything a cozy vibe.
We also added a little hint of Halloween to our built ins with my Z-Gallerie bling skull. My mom got him for me back when I was in my first apartment and he’s one of the coolest dudes I know (aside from my husband, who is definitely THE coolest).
In the living room, our L.O.V.E. letters are now home to a felt pumpkin like you saw last week. He’s still standing up on his own in the O, which makes me pretty happy :)
Our coffee table got a little dose of fall with this target pumpkin and my favorite World Market raven. Also, Evan made the small copper wire ball out of some wire we got at Michael’s.
You might see a little Jack and Sally peeking out from our media center on the left side of the photo above. These two are actually on our shelf all the time, so they’re not technically Halloween decor, but they sure fit in this time of year #grownupscanhavetoystoo.
My Tim Burton art book is also always on display, but the addition of another pumpkin makes it that much more Halloween-y :)
The fireplace got our spray painted hurricanes, my favorite little ghost candle holder from, you guessed it, Target, and our West Elm constellation hurricanes/candleholders (they look like they’re dotted with stars!). These all work well with our DIY’d silver branch, which we still love.
Side note: the whole deal is made even better by these awesome LED candles we have with built in timers…they come on every evening and stay on for 5-6 hours. Not gonna lie, I feel pretty freakin fancy coming home to a house with lit candles everywhere.
Our carved Jack Skellington and Domo funkins live near our faux ficus. (they’re sporting more of our LED candles too but they weren’t lit for the photo). You can read here how we painted Jack to look more realistic and gave Domo a metallic ombre look.
Our entry is home to the DIY felt pumpkin garland I threw together along with a few other Halloween faves. I love Jack and Sally, obvs, so they have a spot here as well, along with a couple black glittery Target pumpkins.
Well this about sums up our Halloween decor this year! Now to go scope out everyone else’s… :D
