Halloween Home Decor Ideas 

Do you love making your house festive for holidays, but don’t like to clutter it up with stuff? 

I’m sharing some simple ways I’ve decorated our house for Halloween that are minimal, inexpensive, and kid-friendly–meaning I don’t have to stress about my little ones breaking anything! 

1) Add a simple Halloween banner to your mantle. 

Your mantle is a a great place to add some Halloween decorations. Since it’s already a focal point in your home, spruce it up by adding a festive Halloween banner. This one came from Walmart, but there are lots of options out there! 

2) Add a family Halloween photo and painted pumpkins. 

If you do family Halloween costumes, print a photo and frame it for your mantle! Pictures aren’t supposed to stay on your hard drive. 

Reusable painted pumpkins also a great touch to your Halloween mantle without being too cluttery. 


3) Hang bats on the wall. 

A wall of bats is so fun for an entry way! You can easily create your own or get already-made bats for your wall here


4) Don’t forget to decorate the front porch. 

Especially if trick-or-treaters are coming your way, you can make your front porch extra festive! Just add a few strands of orange twinkle lights and fall wreath. 

Layered rugs are all the rage these days. I love this buffalo check rug I got that’s not only perfect for Fall, but year round. 


5) Decorate the guest bath

Adding some modern Halloween art to your guest bathroom and some mini pumpkins and skeleton are such a simple way to decorate. And you won’t have to worry about little ones reaching it! 

6) Display Halloween books in a fun way

If you’ve got a collection of Halloween books (see our favorites here), gather them into one place and display them all month long. 


There you have it! Some fun and easy Halloween home decor ideas!
