20 Ways to Decorate for Halloween – Halloween Home Tour


Ghosts and goblins, pumpkins and bats, I love decorating for Halloween! It makes me feel like a kid again!  If you are stopping in from Jessica’s blog, Four Generations One Roof, welcome to my 4 ways to decorate for Halloween! Today I’m joining 4 bloggers who love Halloween. We are each sharing 4 Halloween decor tips. Together we bring you 20 ways to decorate for Halloween – Halloween Home Tour!

Holiday decor is a tradition that I loved as a little girl. Every holiday my mom would transform our home into a seasonal wonderland. My siblings and I would help her tuck away everyday decor, to make room for holiday treasures. Opening up the stored boxes was like reuniting with old friends. The magic of each season would come alive as our house was dusted with decor to welcome the much anticipated holiday.

When I became a mother 16 years ago, I knew that I wanted to carry on those fun holiday decor traditions with my children. Halloween is our family’s favorite! Our 5 children help bring in the boxes, get on the ladder and prep the house for one of the funnest night’s of the year!

Here are 4 ways we decorate for Halloween…

Here is a peek at the elegant table I set this year being featured on Fashionable Hostess’s website this Friday.


I’ll be sharing a few more tables including my favorite, children’s Halloween table soon!


A fun and simple way to decorate your place settings for Halloween is to make these mini party skeleton’s. They will add whimsy and fun to your Halloween table! They look darling placed on a place setting, set on pumpkin or tucked into spaces on a shelf.

To make these little guys…

  • Spray paint mini skeletons white or cream {mine are cream}.
  • Create mini party hats out of craft paper.  Shrink and print off a party hat template from your computer onto your patterned paper. Cut it out and glue it together.
  • Hot glue a small piece of vintage silver tinsel to the top of the hat and a small piece around it’s neck.

Add them to your Halloween tablescape or around your house!

This decor tip is one of our family’s favorite holiday traditions. Plus, it is so easy to do! Create a spooky, bug infested wall to your Halloween house by adding fake black spiders to your wall. Take a small ball of sticky tack and attach it to the back of each spider. Attach them in a random pattern up your wall. This is such an easy, yet dramatic Halloween decor tip! My kids love it and my exterminator thinks it’s hilarious.

They also look great crawling up your front door or crawling on the walls on the outside of your house. Oh the possibilities!!!



Don’t leave your mantle bare this Halloween! Try mixing different color pumpkins with a few black feather boas. Spray paint a small bird cage black. Perch a few black crows around and tuck some black berry sprays under pumpkins. Drape a couple black bead strands in the front. Top it off with some black butterflies.

There you have an unexpected, festive Halloween mantle!


Here is a peek at our Halloween mantle for this year. I will be sharing it along with the rest of our Halloween house 2016 soon…


I hope these 4 tips help you bring more Halloween magic to your home this year! For more Halloween decor tips visit my friend Shauna, The House of Silver Lining. She goes all out for Halloween and I know you will love her and her ideas!
