Halloween Decorating Tips

  • Light Up the House With Candles: Create a creepy and dark mood by using candles all over your house. Mix and match different sizes and colors like white, black, or red candles to amp up your Halloween décor this year. Make sure to dim your home’s lights and let the candles glow in the dark.
  • Pick a Color Scheme: One of the tricks to decorate for Halloween is to choose a color scheme to make the space look put together and sophisticated, such as black and red for a really scary mood and The Addams Family vibe.
  • Spook Them With Pumpkins: Pumpkins are a classic décor piece every Halloween, like creating Jack-O-Lanterns, painting them with bold colors, or gluing them with glitters and buttons. There are plenty of ways you can use pumpkins to spruce up your home for Halloween.
  • Un-Decorate Before You Decorate: Of course, one of the Halloween decorating tips to nail the creepy and dark ambiance in your home is to take out your normal home décor pieces like pictures and replace them with Halloween décor pieces. The main reason to un-decorate is to avoid making the space from looking cluttered and confused. It’s best to put all the focus on your Halloween decorations.
