02 Oct Spooktacular Halloween Décor

It’s officially October, which means it’s time to bust out the pumpkins, skeletons, and get festive. I love a decorated home. Any holiday, any occasion, pretty much any reason.

So, when a good friend of mine saw my Halloween Décor Reveal post from last year and reached out to me about helping her decorate for Halloween you knew I didn’t hesitate to say YES! I was thrilled to take on this project. Seriously, jokes aside I had the same emotions as when I said yes to my wedding dress ha-ha, that shows how much I LOVE a decorated home.

When I first spoke to Brittany there was one thing she knew for sure, absolutely no orange! Which wasn’t a challenge given I don’t normally incorporate orange for my Halloween décor. Really, are we the only two LOVING black, white, and gold Halloween Décor? This Spooktacular Halloween décor gives me all the glam feels to Halloween decorating – I just love it!

To recreate this Spooktacular Halloween Décor, keep reading below. Links are added for items purchased from Michael’s and Target. Unfortunately, many of the other items were purchased from Homegoods and I can’t link. But if you are really interested message me and I can help you find similar ones.

Hopefully, it inspires you to get creative this October. But if you don’t have a mantel, you could recreate the same ideas using a shelf, bookcase, or console table – which is what I do at our home!




First, cover with white cloth, I purchased these from JoAnn Fabric Store (which are now 50% off), then add black gauze in between. Once you’ve done this step then start to decorate the rest.

{To avoid damaging walls use Command Hooks, easy to apply and holds well.}

Then add black branch stems from Michael’s. Lay 2 flat and cut the 3rd one to add small branches in between.

{These are plastic and iron, great to position exactly how you want it.}

Add some cardstock bat silhouettes from Michael’s. I LOVE THESE!

{It comes with stickies and you can reuse these for years to come.}

Place Gold Candelabra by Ashland from Michael’s on each side. (These are out of stock but check store availability. If you are in the Fair Lakes area, they still have some.)

{The measurements of these are 10.24″ x 10.24″ x 15.35″}

For this area I didn’t go out and purchase everything and neither should you. Use items you currently have at home like I did with these two vases. Here is a similar ones from Michael’s. Then add polyfoam skull heads (currently $.99 at Michael’s), some black leaves, and branches to give a scary look.

This candle holder is from Homegoods so I can’t link but the small pumpkins are from Target and Michael’s and are both under $10 right now.

{You can also use real pumpkins versus Styrofoam.}

This area was super easy and all the items are from Michael’s except for the wall decals. I’ve linked each item below for reference.
One Skull Pilar Candle Holder
Two Skull Pilar Candle Holder
Spell Book on Stand
Assorted Skeleton Bottle
Black Pumpkins

Just a heads up creating this look outside of your home will take you atleast 2 hours. First hang white cloths, cut them up to give a distressed look and then go back and add the black/gray. The white cloth is from JoAnn’s and the gray ones are actually from the Dollar Store. YEP! you read that right, the Dollar Store does have similar in white too.

The two tombstones on each end are from Homegoods but the center one is from Target.

{The measurements are 27 inches (H) x 6.5 inches (W) x 15.75 inches (D)}

These festive skeleton doormats are from Target and currently under $10.

{The measurements of these are 30 inches (L) x 18 inches (W)}

This stacked skulls are my favorite! I got them from JoAnn’s and were my best bargain ever. They were originally $99.99 and are now 50% off, Woot Woot!!! Also if you sign up for their mobile app you can add additional coupons even on sale items, which you know i did!

{The measurements of these are 27.5″X 10.75″ X 14.5″}

These are from Target’s dollar section, they were like $3 each. so make sure to go check out your local Target today!
