Halloween Decorating Ideas

If you are down to the wire to get your Halloween decorations out or just looking to step it up for your upcoming Halloween party or if you are hosting a costume party – I’ve got six amazing Halloween decorating ideas and Halloween fireplace mantels that will make you want to rearrange your hearth for the coming spooky festivities.

6 HALLOWEEN FIREPLACE MANTELS

The carved flames on these pumpkins are stunning but easy enough to create yourself!  The layered spooky framed art over the hearth makes this fireplace mantle fun and whimsical too.

All that glitters is the theme with this Halloween fireplace set up – including the black glitter painted skeleton.  It totally works- when the lights go out everything will shimmer in the firelight and light up some candles at night for even more sparkle.

If you are short on Halloween decorations and time, this simple fireplace mantel setup is perfect.  Only a few basic decorations adorn this fireplace for black and white elegance.

In case you have not noticed, the Halloween trend this year is pose-able skeletons.  The human size skeletons are so versatile and you can really get creative with setting them up in funny scenes.  This steampunk themed fireplace features a repetition of over-sized skulls and a unique letter banner hanging from a shower curtain rod.

So there you have it-six creative Halloween decorating ideas to help you get your fireplace ready to greet your guests at your spooky soiree!

Halloween Decorating With Balloons

HALLOWEEN PARTY DECORATIONS

Its October . . . and you know what that means?!  My favorite movie month! Yes, I love horror movies and everything scary in film. Maybe it is because it makes feel so alive to scream and jump at the movies! Ha!

The other reason I love October is because of Halloween.

  I want to share some creative ideas for decorating with balloons and the perk is all of these ideas are relatively inexpensive.  Balloons are always cheap and the best decoration for parties.  Balloons add height and balance to party tables but can also be painted, wrote on with Sharpie markers, and creatively arranged at any event.

5 Easy Ways To Spook Up Your Balloons At Your Halloween Party

This is my absolute favorite idea!  A letter banner and balloon combo- and to get your creative play on words in a fun letter banner, click here- Look What You Made Me Boo

If you like the idea of adding a Boo balloon to your banner and wall decor, they can be found the letter balloons here- Foil Black BOO Halloween Letter Balloon

How about this super easy craft project to turn your balloons into spiders that only require – black balloons and black crepe paper

How easy is this- grab a black Sharpie marker and draw your own adorable cute faces and Jack-O-Lanterns on your balloons!  If you lack artist skill, you can actually buy these with faces already printed on the balloons here – Ghost Balloons & Jack-O-Lantern Balloons

This idea is clever too – add some bat wings to your balloons so they look like they are going to take flight at any moment!  Seems easy enough to make with some scissors and these – bat sticker decals

Or if you don’t have any balloons – these hanging paper lanterns would also work for adding bats!

You can also keep your balloons more basic and ready to inflate with helium with these fun polka dot balloons or clear confetti balloons with Halloween colors of confetti too.  Layering with banners and tissue tassels are an easy way to also create a larger party table backdrop.
