Hello, friends, welcome to our home. I’d love to take you on a little home tour of our Halloween decor and all its spooky elegance. I hope you will be enchanted and beguiled and find inspiration.

Halloween Decor Ideas

Spooky Elegance and Ghoulish Delight


Our fireplace mantel is so fun to decorate since we did our DIY Mantel Makeover. It was an easy home improvement project for under $50! This year’s mantel is a mix of  Halloween and autumn decor. I love combining the holiday and season as it makes for such an elegant feel, and bonus, I’ve got a start on my decorating for Thanksgiving once I remove the Halloween items.

Halloween Fireplace Mantel in detail…

A garland of fall leaves entwined with a strand of mini white twinkle lights lay along the mantel with miniature pumpkins placed atop black candlesticks. The black and deep purple wreath has fall leaves tucked inside to give the wreath some pop. Halloween tinsel garlands hang behind the wreath and fall across the mantel to the sides. And. black gauze lends a spooky touch draped across the front of the mantel.

Our glittery black cat hisses next to the colorful postcard of the Headless Horseman of Sleepy Hollow chasing Ichabod Crane and the spider candelabra with our DIY Halloween Candles.

Candy Corn is a favorite for easy Halloween decor. You will see I have used it in several places. I have my frame that I swap out seasonal/holiday printables. This printable is a Halloween Quote.

The awesome black cat postcard is the famous Tournée du Chat Noir from Paris. Rory sent this to us from her study abroad trip to France this summer — perfect for my Halloween mantel.

Halloween Decor around the house…

Oh, I am in love with our latest project. I really like the versatility of vinyl art, but unfortunately, the space by my front door where I want to use it most has too much texture on the wall to allow the vinyl to adhere well. So, Luke and I put together a DIY Float Frame to make my dreams come true. This idea is even better than just simply placing the vinyl art on the wall — it provides the opportunity to add dimension and layers. I am excited to change this float frame up for the seasons.

My black lanterns with battery operated wax candles are perfect with candy corn. And a few little pumpkins add a nice touch.

A simple ribbon thread with glittery Halloween shapes decorates a plain lampshade.


Little mini pumpkins adorn the end table with the adorable placard signifying The Black Cat Pub in England — another of the treasures brought home from Rory’s summer trip to England. She couldn’t resist since we have two black cats of our own, Jinx and Josie.

A string of purple lights with black gauze and my Happy Halloween sign with an orange chiffon ribbon adorn my hutch with spooky style.

And, my favorite Halloween pillow.

Never Laugh as the Hearse drives by… for you may be the next to die.

I actually carved a pumpkin with this scene a few years ago. I love how it turned out, what do you think?
