‘Tis the season to spook your friends and family! It’s that time of the year again and this season, we’re rounding up the most haunting Halloween home decor to spook your guests. Before we dive into that list, let’s check out some Halloween decorating tips from Punchbowl.
- Take down your regular home decor before you decorate. It’s best to declutter and clean up before you decorate for Halloween so you have a blank canvas, a clean slate to begin with. Besides, piling up on decor will make your space look messy, unorganized, and super cluttered.
- Pick a color scheme. The fun thing about Halloween is that there are several color schemes to choose from. You can go classic black and white, or orange and black. You can also do bright green and violet colors. Before you decorate, pick a color theme and an overall theme. It can be witches and wizards, spiders and bats, vampires, or anything you fancy. Build on those ideas to create a unified look.
- Don’t underestimate the power of candles and pumpkins. Something as regular as candles can provide a creepy look by changing up the colors. Go for black and orange candles or those that come in colors of Fall. As for pumpkins, you can leave them as is or get creative and paint on messages that read “Boo!” or fun quotes like “Creepin’ it real,” and much more.
You still have time to shop and decorate in time for Halloween, so check out these fun recommendations for haunting Halloween home decor to spook your guests this season.
