Decorating indoors for Halloween creates a festive space for everyone. These Halloween decor ideas are perfect for a party or a get-together before you send the kiddos outdoors for tricks and treats. In addition, you can extend the Halloween decor outside.

Decorating Tips for Ghoulish Fun:

  • Choose a focal point, such as a mantel.
  • Place your largest decorations first (such as animated figures) where they’ll get the most attention.
  • Use faux spider webs with wild abandon.
  • Layer in scary accessories, including skeleton parts, bugs, crows, cages and more.
  • Add special effects, such as string lights and projection lighting.
  • Spray paint anything, including pumpkins and plants. Think black houseplants or mums!
  • Take it one step at a time. Remember that you can buy core pieces and add to your collection over time.
