What’s your Halloween decorating style? Is it fun and bright? Scary and dark? Or somewhere in the middle? I wanted to create a moody, vintage, traditional vibe this year and used what I had around the house to create the look. I still don’t know what to call this style, but I guess it’s spooky chic Halloween decor. (post contains affiliate links, see disclosure)
Lit black taper candles and a black crow instantly set the Halloween vibe. And I love these gold candlestick holders that match perfectly to the hardware pulls on our entryway console. As I mentioned, I used what I had this year to create this look. But because this is still our everyday drop zone, I had to keep it functional. This wood bowl is perfect for car keys and sunglasses and will be available soon in the store.
On the other side of the entryway, I created a simple look with DIY paper bats on the wall and black cloth draping the chair. And also hung some skeleton keys on our hooks. It’s simple but compliments the other side of the room well and I love the haunted mansion vibe. Looking at it now, I should have added a creepy vintage portrait above the hooks also.
The bats on the wall and spooky chic Halloween decor on the entryway table will be the only Halloween decorating I do this year. It’s too late to start on the shelf styling that I usually do. And I still have the outside to decorate for all the trick or treaters. We bought bags of candy that I’m going to wrap up in goodie bags for the kiddos.
Believe it or not, I usually decorate our exterior for Halloween the day of. And will do that again this year. I use black cloth, fake spiders webs, and lanterns for a quick and easy look. I’ll be sure to share it all on my Instagram stories. Happy Halloween!
