6 Ideas for Elegantly Eerie Halloween Décor
Halloween is right around the corner! That means it’s time to carve Jack-o-lanterns, eat candy corn, and sip on pumpkin spice lattes. But what about your home decor? If you’re not into cliché witches’ hats and corny skeletons, rest assured that you have plenty of options for incorporating non-traditional twists on the trick-or-treat season. Here are six ideas to make your home elegantly eerie just in time for All Hallows Eve.
Fall Floral Arrangements
Gone is the season for daisies and lilies. Instead, fill vintage apothecary jars with thistle, amaranthus, and scabiosa pods for an eerie feel. These otherworldly plants lend the dramatic, moody vibe you’re hoping for, making them the perfect table centerpiece or accent on your fireplace mantel.
Eye-Catching Branch Displays
Dead, blackened tree branches give off a strong Halloween vibe. You can buy this decoration or forage from your yard or neighborhood. Then, place the branch in a large, sturdy floor vase. This alone is decor enough, but you can help it stand out even more with a few finishing touches, such as faux crows, bats, or cobwebs. This clever decor is as stunning as it is simple.
Jet-Black and Ghostly White Pumpkins
For many, it’s not Halloween without pumpkins. But if orange isn’t your color, try something new and edgy—spray-paint your pumpkins jet-black! You can create elegant contrast by painting a few of them a ghostly white as well. Gold stems complete the look, creating easy coffee table decor for October.
An ordinary grapevine wreath can serve as the backdrop for a spooky and rustic Halloween decoration. Add whatever bobbles you want to create just the right look. Glittery orange beads, black foam bats, orange and white plaid ribbon, and black rubber snakes are just a few ideas to inspire your creativity.
Twinkling Autumn Lights
Take advantage of the shorter days by adding elegantly eerie lighting. Some ideas include black taper candles in antique brass candleholders; lanterns filled with battery-operated votive candles; leaf-shaped string lights; tea lights scattered across the mantelpiece; and pumpkins carved with simple geometric patterns rather than the traditional Jack-o-lantern face. Feel free to use these lighting ideas to decorate your home inside and out for Halloween.
All-Black Table Settings
Boost the ominous vibe in your dining room with dark and decadent table settings. Everyone will be in the mood for fright night after eating dinner on black plates with matte black silverware, black linens, and black Victorian goblets.
