The Most Creative Halloween Décor Ideas On Instagram
No fake blood and monsters here, just fun alternatives to cliche Halloween Decor
It’s your village’s Trick-or-Treat night, and aside from your well-stocked candy bags, your front gate or door still stands bare! What to do? Go to Instagram, of course, to get these creative and unusual Halloween decorating ideas that don’t involve monster masks and fake blood. Happy Halloween!
This mantelpiece setup has a lot of good things going on: giant clock, neutral palette, weathered finishes.
RL Tip: Once you remove the spiders and “Spooky” garland, this vignette is good to go all year ‘round.
If you’re a fashionista, we bet you’re going to put up “Chanel” Halloween décor! Style blogger Lauren Sebastian does it right with draped black crepe, rubber spiders, and candles. We’re loving the black and gold pumpkins, too!
RL Tip: Black tulle is an easy material to use for sophisticated Halloween decor. Drape over your bed, a table lamp, a chandelier for spooky-elegant fun.
Merry, Happy Halloween Xmas
Are you torn between decorating for the holidays and Halloween? (It’s the “Ber” months, after all.) Then let’s kill two birds with one stone with this Halloween Christmas tree!
RL Tip: An all-black Christmas tree can also make a bold Halloween (and Christmas!) statement. You can find one at Dimensione.
All-black silhouette cutouts of spooky scenes are a good (and simple) decorating idea, and the kids can do this on the weekend before Halloween.
RL Tip: All you need is cheap black kartolina, scissors, and a steady pair of hands (how-tos in the IG link).
If you want your front door all decked out for Halloween but in an easy, fun way, why not try marquee letters that light up to spell out a spooky word?
RL Tip: You can find marquee letters with lights at affordable prices at Typo.
Do you want your Halloween décor to be a little subtle and not too obviously spooky? Try this sophisticated door-side setup of a hurricane lamp, mums, a fake skull, and woven pumpkin.
RL Tip: You can buy a fake skull at toy stores, and woven pumpkins at Dapitan Arcade.
The Walking Dead…Gardener
This is a funny and simple idea if you want to scare up your neighbors (and disguise the bald spots in your garden).
RL Tip: Use discarded mannequin hands, or buy those disembodied latex zombie hands at bookstores and toy stores. “Plant” them in between your succulents and surprise your guests.
