Halloween Home Tour
In years past I’ve gone all out with Halloween decorating! This year I’ve been reevaluating how I decorate. I’m trying to be more intentional and not buy things “just in case” I need them in the future. That’s when I get in trouble! I bought a few new items this Halloween, but nothing crazy. I mean I really want a projector and a those scary ghost holograms, but I don’t think now is the time. 😉
Remember, you don’t need to decorate every inch of your house for a holiday. Pick a few main areas like your mantle, dining room table, kids’ space and kitchen (just some examples). You might want to put a few things outside, but that’s up to you!
Shop your house first! You’d be amazed at what can turn into Halloween decor! Old prints and photographs are fun to include. Painting pumpkins black can make things a bit spookier! Add some skulls and eyeballs to a bowl! The possibilities are endless!
If you are going to buy some things for Halloween, check out my post, “Halloween Decorations on the Cheap!” You can save a lot of money by heading to these stores! Take a look below for my Halloween home tour! Hopefully you find some inspiration! I’ve included the sources for most of the items you see. Unfortunately, not all of my Halloween decor is available anymore, so I’ve included similar pieces.

My dining room table got a Halloween makeover using the fall decor that I already had there. There’s no need to completely recreate a tablescape when transitioning from fall to Halloween and then back to fall for Thanksgiving! I added some black and white paper plates from Target and topped them with some white paper mache skulls that I found at Michaels last year. I like that this table is pretty simple and easy to copy! You could use any black paper plates and any little skulls to recreate this look!
I mixed in some dollar spot cheese cloth and some spooky “things” from Michaels that I’ve acquired over the years!
I hope this gives you some Halloween inspiration for your home! I went for a classic and spooky look this year, all while trying to keep it minimal!
