Halloween Decor Ideas for Every Room

Want to decorate your home for Halloween but don’t know where to start? Here are some ideas to inspire you!

Living Room

Haunted Mantel Display: Arrange faux cobwebs, eerie candlesticks, and spooky figurines on your fireplace mantel for a haunting focal point.

Pumpkin Patch: Create a display of various-sized pumpkins and gourds (real or faux) in one space of the room (like a coffee table or the TV stand) for a charming fall touch. Clustering decor makes it more impactful than having it spread around the room!


Witchy Potion Jars: Fill clear glass jars with colored liquids and label them as magical potions for a fun and mysterious kitchen display. Or, add mysterious “body parts” to make it extra spooky!

Halloween-themed Dishware: Use spooky plates, cups, and napkins featuring ghosts, witches, and black cats to add a festive flair to your dining table.


Nightmare Before Bedtime: Cover the beds with dark-colored sheets and add Halloween-themed throw pillows for a cozy, eerie atmosphere.

Ghostly Wall Silhouettes: Cut ghost shapes from black construction paper or vinyl and stick them to the bedroom walls. Illuminate the silhouettes with dim orange or purple string lights for an eerie glow.

Dining Room

Wicked Table Centerpiece: Arrange black candles, faux skulls, and dark florals as a dramatic centerpiece for your Halloween dinner table.

Spooky Wall Decor: decorate shelves with faux spiders, bats, and potion bottles to create a haunted display on the dining room wall.

Kids Spaces

Friendly Ghost Decor: Hang cute ghost cutouts or plush toys from the ceiling for a kid-friendly, not-so-scary touch.


Spooky Shower Curtain: Swap out your regular shower curtain for one featuring creepy designs like skeletons or haunted houses.

Haunted Mirror: Stick spooky decals or add fake cobwebs to the bathroom mirror to give it a ghostly touch.
