It’s that time of year to get in the Halloween spirit (get it 😉 ) and look forward to celebrating All Hallows Eve. It’s nice to dedicate a small area of your home to some spooky decorations and make it look spine chillingly fabulous! I’ve arranged a Halloween home display with some creepy goodies in my porch so they can be enjoyed by visitors and the trick or treaters on the 31st October.
The supermarkets are awash with reasonably priced Halloween accessories. Most of mine were from Sainsbury’s with a few items I already had in the house mixed in for my Halloween trick or treat home display.
The marble skull was from TK Maxx. This exact one is no longer available, but they do have a great range of other skulls.
To create your own Halloween vignette, gather a few items of different sizes, textures, and heights with a cohesive colour scheme (as you can see mine is mainly gold and black). To achieve different levels use books or boxes to stack things on. I elevated my crow in a cage (how cute is he!) using books, and to also add height, I gathered some tall fallen twigs from the garden and arranged in a jar which were perfect to hang my bats from.
Group items together, play around with the arrangement, stand back to check, then tweak until it looks right. Place so the items interact with each other as I have done with the chocolate eyeball on the feather, the keys on the cage, and the spider crawling across the skull’s eye socket.
Create a spooky atmosphere with candles or battery operated LED lights.
Do not leave burning candles unattended, or place them underneath flammable items.
Your display can just consist of a few items with a nod to Halloween, or you can get elaborate with a full on display. Either way, have a spooktacular All Hallows Eve, and remember to creep it real!
