Decorating for Halloween

Decorating for Halloween

Over the past couple years I have been building up my Halloween decorations, since it seems to be getting bigger over here in the UK. Now my collection has it own little section in our attic and I can’t wait until the time comes to bring them down. Decorating for Halloween, Christmas and Birthdays just makes me so excited for all the festivities! (You have no idea how much I would love to keep my Christmas decorations up all year round). So today I thought I’d show you what’s in my collection so far and what exactly I do to decorate for spooky season.

The Front Hallway

This is where I always start and the place that the trick or treaters see. I have a glow in the dark skeleton I like to hang  either on the wall, or the front door on Halloween night.

I also have a wall hanging ghost sign, a spider web which sticks onto the mirror and a ‘Boo’ sign.

A creepy looking black cat sits on top of a spike in the corner.

No festive decorating would be complete without fairy lights and I have these cute skull head ones which I drape around the mirror and the door frame.

For ceiling decorations I have this plastic sheet with bats printed and hanging on it. Lastly Black glitter spiders hang from the ceilng, and constantly fall down, these are very popular amongst the trick or treaters.

 

Outside:

I don’t really do much decorating outside for fear of things being stolen. I do always have a lit pumpkin though and a witch lantern next to it, letting people know that we have plenty of sweets to hand out.

The Living Room:

In the living room I have little trinkets dotted around, rather than hanging from the walls or the ceiling. I have 3 little ghost lights which I am obsessed with! They are so cute and definitely my favourite decoration.

There are more fairy lights in this room, pumpkin ones which I bought very recently.

I also have a little, ceramic pumpkin which I put a battery operated tea light in.

That is pretty much everything so far, aside from a black sparkly pumpkin I have on my bedroom windowsill.

All of these items came from Poundland, Wilkinsons, TK Maxx, Hobbycraft and Sainsburys, so making your home spooky and festive can be really inexpensive. I love Halloween decorations, I think they’re so much fun and we get a lot of comments from parents and children saying how amazing our Hallway looks.

I hope you enjoyed this post! If you also decorate for Halloween then let me know in the comments, I’d love some new tips and ideas. Don’t forget to subscribe to my blog and follow me on Instagram and Twitter too, as always I follow all bloggers back. Thanks for reading!
