Spooky Greetings

Wood letters can commonly be found in many craft stores. Pick your spooky saying – like BOO – and add some paint, glitter or other decoration and display it among other seasonal accents.

Candy Bar

For trick-or-treaters or just yourself, a candy bar really only requires various sized bowls or platters, and maybe a handmade banner or black lace table runner. Add ghost lollipops or little jack-o-lantern baskets filled with your favorite candy.

DIY Banner

Speaking of a DIY banner – just cut out some felt or paper and create a pennant banner with whatever Halloween statement you like.

Thursday’s Theme: Halloween Decorating Roundup 2019

Thursday, October 17th, 2019

Today we’re rounding up some of our favorite Halloween looks featured this year on the blog, which we hope will either offer you fresh inspiration or kick your decorating up a notch in time for All Hallow’s Eve.

Pumpkin Gourd Candy Basket

Gourd accents are some of our favorite items to decorate with during the harvest season. This one in particular is great for Halloween, because the jack-o-lantern face is already carved into it. In this post, we showed it with a layer of candy corn on the bottom and a flameless candle propped on top of the candy. This gives the gourd extra seasonal charm and your All Hallow’s Eve display a moody, possibly spooky light source.

Halloween Vignette

The vignette in this Quick Tip was fun to put together for the catalog. Texture, elevation, light and depth are well-executed in this little display, which works on an accent table and also as a centerpiece.

Halloween Bottle Labels | How to Nest for Less

This DIY was featured in a recent Halloween printables post. We love the simplicity of attaching labels to glass bottles or jars, as well as the charming simplicity of the labels themselves. They would also look great on frosted glass or colored glass this season.

This is actually two craft ideas in one, but both involve using leaves to add

DIY Fall Leaf Garland | Lia Griffith

This tutorial mentions using a Cricut Maker, but it’s totally possible to cut out leaf shapes by hand.
Either way, you will have a beautiful fall garland to display.
