It’s October which means it’s time for some spooky Halloween fun! Yes, the leaves are changing colors, pumpkins galore at every turn, the scents of cinnamon and other spices are lingering in the air. In the most recent years, Halloween has become one of the more popular holidays for décor, and it’s getting almost as popular as Christmas. This is a holiday where many people will shop for some of the spookiest interior and exterior décor.

So why not go bold this Halloween by creating a ghastly haunted house that any ghost would love. With these tips, you can definitely make it happen!

 

When should you start decorating for Halloween?

As soon as September rolls around it’s probably very tempting to just go ahead and prepare for Halloween and other Fall festivities by decorating your home with the colors orange, yellow, and brown

It’s not uncommon for some people to begin decorating for Halloween in the third week of September, although you're fine to wait until the first or second week of October to bring out your Halloween décor. There truly isn’t a right or a wrong time to decorate; so just go ahead and decorate whenever you're ready!

Begin by Picking a Theme 

When it comes to any sort of season décor, you’ll want to first begin by picking a theme. You can combine your personal taste with whichever season décor to create a timeless style that can be used each and every year. If you’re wanting to go for a more luxurious and sophisticated approach, then you can go with some Handmade Large Velvet Pumpkins. These come in three different colors and truly create an elegant yet chic appearance. This is perfect for anyone who is wanting to create a haunted house look for Halloween but still wants to be subtle enough.

This can be followed up with some scented candles all around the house. They can be placed on the table, counters, shelves, and any other area you think would be fitting. Our Pumpkin + Cinnamon Fall Candle is an excellent choice. This will provide your home with the sweet smells of Halloween nights while truly radiating your space with low light. 

Create a Petrifying Path

The outside of your home should be just as important as the inside of your home during this festive season. Making sure you have some sort of flow from the outside of your home to the inside will ensure your home is as spooky and as stylish as it can be. This also may help trick or treaters follow the right path rather than walking all over your grass.

There are several ways you can create a Halloween-themed pathway. For example, you can include a trail of mums surrounding the path or use some scary things such as red or orange string lights to shape the path to your entrance door. 

Set the atmosphere

 

You’ll want to set the atmosphere by selecting the right color scheme and lighting. There are many ways to bring dark Halloween colors into your home through décor.

You can mix in some decorative accents such as a Foam Pumpkin Set. These can be placed as a nice centerpiece on your dining table or even on your front door. You can also carve off pumpkins and set LED lights inside of them. 

Another way to set the atmosphere can be switching out your lightbulbs to black or red lights. If you have any smart light bulbs, those can do the trick as you can switch the color with your smartphone.

Candles can also be used to set an eerie atmosphere for your haunted house. They have the power to make a space very soothing but can also can give off a creepy atmosphere. You can get some candlesticks or even a large pillar candle to place inside a Square Lantern. If you have multiple of these hanging around your house and porch, you’ll be sure to achieve a chilling ambiance.

Utilize comfort

Even during the most frightening time of the year, your home should still be comfortable. You can go subtle with your décor through textiles such as placing a Halloween Bats Pillow or even a cute Happy Halloween Pillowcase. These are a fantastic way to add a cute and comfortable twist to your spooky/seasonal décor.

Be creative

Whether you’re wanting to just make some subtle changes to your home with fall colors and pumpkins, or go full Addams Family on your home, it’s all about creativity. Since this is your space, it’s important you feel comfortable in it. There are a variety of ways you can enhance your home in a fun and spooktacular way for Halloween. Whether it be getting out cobwebs and skulls or adding a pumpkin here and there, just don’t forget to have fun with it and let your personality shine through it!
