Halloween Decoration Ideas
Halloween is one of the most significant days in the autumnal calendar. If you're looking to celebrate by decorating your home, it doesn't have to be too over the top. Instead, there are plenty of subtle and on-trend halloween decoration ideas, which will transform your home this season.

DIY decorations

Creating some Halloween decorations is a great way to get the whole family involved in the occasion. There are lots of simple ways to create decorations that don't require too much set up or materials. Take inspiration from sites such as Pinterest to gather ideas on what to make for your home. A great decoration idea is a Halloween garland. Simply cut out some cobwebs, stars, bats and moons and clip them on to some string. Decorate with fairy lights for a more grown-up look.

Colours and accessories

Decorating for Halloween isn't all about the spiders and bats. It's also about the seasonal flowers and different raw materials you can use. For example, use a pumpkin as a unique vase to hold autumnal flowers such as orange and white roses mixed in with dried rosemary and dark leaves. Play around with colours such as orange, black, red and purple. These colours are perfect dotted around the home as cushions, tablecloths or even candles.

Or if you prefer a more subtle approach to Halloween, try using bronze, duck egg blue and cream as your colour scheme. This makes for a more sophisticated approach to the occasion.

Decorating your outside space

Halloween doesn't have be confined to the indoors. You can have fun with decorating your outdoor space too. Wreaths are a great way of decorating for Halloween, especially if you prefer the more toned down look. Find out how to make your own autumn inspired Halloween wreath here.
