Simple Spooky Halloween Decorations

Simple Spooky Halloween Decorations

Posted by DecoArt on Sep 25th 2016

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays to decorate for. But with little ones in the house, I have come to appreciate decorating in moderation and not going all out scary. I settle for slightly spooky, and sometimes that can mean less is more. This collection of Halloween decorations are simple but spooky and keep a classic Halloween look.

Halloween apothecary 

Apothecary bottles are an inexpensive decoration to make out of recycled containers. Just add spooky labels and group together as a vignette! Halloween Apothecary Labels at World Label


Another simple Halloween decoration is to fill containers with spooky "collections" such as spiders, skulls, or mice. Apothecary Jar Collections from Craftily Ever After


It doesn't get any simpler than a pumpkin and a hat! Add the name Ichabod and you have one spooky setup. Ichabod Pumpkin from Better Homes & Gardens

Halloween mantle I love the oversize crepe paper bow tie on this mantel. It gives the feel of something right out of The Nightmare Before Christmas! Crepe Paper Mantel from Your Cozy Home

Fladdermus mobil 

Take your Halloween decor "up" by creating a simple bat mobile using an old branch from the backyard! Bat Mobile from Rebecca's DIY

Crystal ball candlesticks 

These crystal balls are easier to make than they look and have a great subtly spooky feel to them. Crystal Ball Candlesticks from Flamingo Toes

Craft pumpkin

Decoupaging a pumpkin is a great way to dress it up for Halloween. You would only need one or two of these added to a Halloween vignette. Decoupage Pumpkin from Michelle's Party Plan-It
