Get Creative With CREEPY CRAWLIES
Bats, spiders, and ravens oh my! Adding a grouping of creepy creatures and cobwebs to your decor is the easiest way to add spooky style. Cover your mantel, bookcases, or windows in a collection of cobwebs and accent with a cute but creepy oversize spider. Or add a frightful faux raven perched on a black spray-painted branch. And you can never go wrong with a pairing of playful paper bats on the wall.
Focus on adding decorative items to a maximum of 3 areas in a room to make the most impact.

MAKE YOUR OWN Pumpkin Patch
Nothing says fall quite like a pile of pumpkins on a doorstep. And we say the more the merrier when it comes to making your porch look like an actual pumpkin patch. Opt for a variety of sizes, shapes, and colors to give visual interest, and throw in some lanterns and festively fall mums to finish things off. Or for a more sustainable (and long-lasting) option, line up some realistic-looking faux pumpkins and gourds as a dining table centerpiece.
To keep your pumpkins and gourds from rotting, spray a cloth with floor cleaner and rub all over the surface.

BLACK & Boo-tiful
If you’re looking for decor that’s more chic than eek, dress up your space in all black accessories. You can create a decadent and dark table setting, with a black tablecloth and linens, moody flowers, and black taper candles. Or try a spooky black wreath and black painted pumpkins on your front porch or mantel for a more dramatic moment.
Invest in simple black accessories for Halloween, and you can use them all year round with your existing decor.
