O.M. Freak! Halloween is literally just a week away!!!! I don’t know about y’all, but I just decorated my place for Halloween a couple of weeks ago. I love Halloween, but this year I was crazy busy with all that is going on in my home that it got pushed to the back burner. When you have kids, they remind you of these special occasions and you cannot quite escape them, so to please them and myself I did some decorating. Today, I am going to share with you 5 Last-Minute Halloween Decor Ideas that you can do in your home. Pssst, you can also save this post for next year by pinning an image (Hey, I know I am behind…but pinning for next year, won’t hurt).
5 Last-Minute Halloween Decor Ideas
1.Go easy, stick with Pumpkins! You can do so much with them and they will never go out of style! Nowadays, you don’t even have to buy real pumpkins to decorate your home with, you can make them using rice and fabric. How cool is that? One thing I like to do is mix different sizes and texture faux pumpkins to create more of a visual. Another thing I like to do is stick to a certain color(s) that match my home decor when decorating with pumpkins, it looks more timeless and put together when done that way.
2. Skullify your home. I use skulls in my everyday decor, but I also like to bust out the “special” ones I use just for Halloween. It adds a bit of a creep factor and subtle. If skull that’s top can come off you can turn that into a planter or you can invest in a skull cookie jar and just use that as I did. Here is another skull planter I created, HERE! If you just need some ideas on what you can do with regular ol’ store-bought pumpkins, HERE is another simple skull idea.
3. Throw a pillow on it. I find Halloween pillows to be classy. Since Halloween is one of those seasons where you can either go whimsy, traditional, or goth. It is something you can place in storage and bring out during the season and everyone will still rave about it. Additionally, Halloween pillows could be made even more traditional with some fun halloween embroidery designs that could be added onto your pillow covers to make them look more Halloween-themed. Designs like that can make it look like homeowners put in a lot of effort to design their pillowcases when really all they need is an embroidery machine. Of course, some people might prefer having more formal pillowcases, but others might decide to opt for more fun pillows, especially if they’re hosting a Halloween event.
4. Dollar Tree Halloween for the win! Don’t have time or money to spruce up your home, shop the dollar store. One bag of spiderwebs from the dollar store can go a long way. Place it on your pictures and around candlesticks to add that look of an aged home and use dollar store crows and painted (dollar store) pumpkins to amp up your space.
5. Use what you already have. Want to know the secret to how I am able to decorate my home on a budget and sometimes free for Halloween? I invest in pieces that can be used year-a-round and during Halloween. If you look at the images in this post, you will find items that look spooky or look like things that are typically sold around Halloween that are used in my everyday decor. This catchall bowl below was an after Halloween purchase that I use every single day. I love the black and gold and it matches my style perfectly. Choose items that match your personal style but can also be used for Halloween.
This Halloween I kept it subtle and clean. No Halloween clutter on the mantle or table, just simple classy spooky decor that would make our guest say, “Wow!” You too can achieve this with these simple tips!
