Spooky Halloween Decorating Themes

Black and silver theme

The easiest way to decorate your home for Halloween is to start with a theme. Begin with one room and focus on decorating one space at a time. This makes the process less stressful. Every year, you can add a new room to the mix, each with its own theme. Can't decide on a theme? Some spooky ideas for decor include ghastly ghosts, wicked witches, creepy-crawly spiders, haunted cemeteries, and pretty pumpkins.

Outdoor Halloween Decorations

Entry steps decorated with Halloween saying

A haunted yard display is a creepy welcome for trick-or-treaters, and you can save money by making your own decorations. Carve pumpkins into jack-o'-lanterns with scary faces, write warning messages that line the sidewalk, or create a bewitching display on the front porch with a broom, black shoes, and a witch's hat. Make a simple wreath for the front door using twigs and leaves from the yard and a painted sign warning visitors to "Beware."
