Today I’m sharing all the little Halloween details we’ve added around our house for this spooky season. Olivia LOVES it. We had so much fun hanging spider webs and sticking plastic bugs and spiders everywhere we could think.
We are hosting a Halloween party again this year, so this is the first layer of decorating. Creepy skeletons and animal parts in jars will come home from Lonnie’s classroom closer to the party. None of this is magazine worthy, or overly styled, I just thought you’d like to see a little peek into how our house looks right now. Maybe there will be an idea or vignette that will catch your eye and inspire you. We’ve collected lots of Halloween bits and pieces over the years, but this year we added some really fun Martha Stewart decorations from Michaels.
I don’t think our decorations are over-the-top, but I did sprinkle a little creepy, crawly all over the house. These gold foil moths are my favorite addition. I love them with a couple pumpkins and some plastic bugs I gold foiled in our sunroom.
I wall of bats swooping across it is always a good idea. This is a quick and easy way to add a bunch of Halloween drama with very little effort.
I added some florals to our living room and dining room. Keeping with the sinister vibe, I chose dark crimson reds, deep burgandys and little black buds. I also added more little plastic spiders and snakes creeping out of them.
Probably about 8 years ago, the kids and I cut out a couple of these owl silhouettes for our windows. They are one of my favorite Halloween decorations and they are just made out of black poster board.
The cement pumpkin candle stick holders are a DIY from a Halloween past.
I love to stick eye balls on planters, paintings and this year I added a big pair to the candy bucket.
When the day of the party hits, I’ll scatter more bats cut outs around. They are a quick way to add a festive feel to a table top.
Moth, spider and snake stickers added to glasses instantly gives them a spooky edge.
Years ago I started collecting beakers, flasks and old bottles. I added fun labels to them and filled them with sweets and flowers for a dangerously delicious candy bar.
And a few light-up bats watch over the treats.
So, I hope you enjoyed a little tour of our house all decked out for Halloween. And now I better go finish those Halloween costumes.
