Are you ready to get into the spooky holiday spirit? Whether you transform your space into a personal haunted house or hang up a couple of cute ghosts, Halloween is a fun time of year to try something new with your Halloween apartment decorating!
During the month of October (and maybe a month or two beforehand), it seems there’s a ghastly ghoul or a smiling pumpkin at every turn. When it comes time to find decorations that actually fit your aesthetic, it can seem overwhelming. Below is a list of some great décor resources for your Halloween apartment decorating:
For the Intense Halloween Fans:
For the Causal Halloween Enthusiast:
Spirit Halloweens pop up at every twist and turn. They are not for the faint of heart, however! If haunted houses and cackling animatronics are not for you, we suggest you skip this stop. Party City is a safer alternative if you want to avoid scaring your neighbors too badly!
If you hope to accent your home with aesthetically pleasing, cute Halloween décor, we suggest heading to your local craft store or the seasonal section of Target for your Halloween apartment decorating. The $5 bins at the front of the store tend to have adorable pumpkins, small candles, and awesome fall-themed hand towels. If you’re willing to spend more than $5, HomeGoods has a plethora of ceramic pumpkins, Halloween figurines, fall wreaths, throw pillows, and more!
The best way to stand out from the rest is to create your own décor! Turn on a spooky movie, get yourself a pumpkin-spice latte, and light a candle while you tackle these 3 easy DIY projects!
Simply draw your pumpkin’s face design on the cork coaster and hot glue on the pompoms. We suggest filling in the black pompoms first, followed by attaching the green felt (as the stem), and then filling in the rest with your orange pompoms.
Do you want your neighbors to know how much you love Halloween, but you don’t want to be outrageous about it? Try out this spooky but sleek DIY.
Spray paint your wreath and your rubber snakes (yes, the ones your siblings scared you with when you were younger) to be completely black. Please use safety precautions when spray painting, and ensure you are wearing proper protection. Once your pieces are dry, hot glue the snakes onto the wreath. Soon it will appear that the twigs are more snakes wrapping all around each other. Very spooky!
Martha Stewart strikes again! This fun and easy DIY is simple, yet effective. This might even be décor you want to keep out year round.
Begin by sawing your plaster skull in half. Attach the standard metal bookends to the skull halves with hot glue, and allow time to dry. Then, paint the entire skull in the paint of your choosing. Once it’s dry, arrange the skulls with your favorite seasonal books for a spooky bookshelf.
