October is here, and Halloween is just around the corner! Get your home ready for the upcoming spooky season with a few décor additions. Boost your curb appeal and get in the holiday spirit with a few simple add-ons that can be bought or created on your own!
Halloween is the perfect time for exterior accents and getting creative in terms of design. The beauty of seasonal décor is that it can always be removed and upgraded for next year. For those with homes that see a lot of trick-or-treating traffic, Halloween décor is a must!
Pumpkins And Gourds
Unsurprisingly, pumpkins and gourds are some of the most popular additions to the exterior of a home. These items, real or faux, are inexpensive and add so much life and color to a property. Not to mention, they offer a fun activity to get you in the spirit.
Whether you’d like to turn your pumpkins into spooky jack o’lanterns or perhaps even paint them pretty colors, there’s so much opportunity for curb appeal with these. It’s fun for the whole family, and you can even enjoy the seeds later on!
Following pumpkins, lights are probably the next-most popular item to display on homes. Especially when purple or orange, lights can add a completely different vibe to the Halloween aesthetic you’re going for.
These lights can be string lights, strung from an entrance-way or along a fence, or even in-ground lighting to illuminate your property. There are also many pendants or specialty lights on-theme with Halloween to take advantage of.
An easy DIY project is placing a colored sheet over your existing outdoor lights to give off a different color. This is an affordable way to make the most of your existing structure and will produce less waste when all is said and done.
Fall Foliage Wreath
For those looking for a minimal approach to Halloween décor, we recommend implementing fall colors into the design. Rather than the flashy purple and orange that many opt for, go for the deep browns, rust oranges, and soft greens to liven up the curb appeal.
One of the best ways to do this is with a fall foliage wreath. These can either be purchased or hand-made depending on the amount of time, money, and look you’re trying to achieve. They are a great way to welcome family and guests into your home while creating a warm welcome for all to enjoy.
Spooky Welcome Mat
Welcome mats are an easy and cost-effective décor option for any holiday. Browse around online for the perfect match to your aesthetic and existing home layout. You’ll find a wide range of options for mats, and surely the best fit for your own home.
Whether you’re looking for something quirky and humorous, or spooky and edgy, there are so many avenues you can take with a welcome mat. Better yet, mats are easily stored throughout the year and you’re able to enjoy this effortless décor option for decades to come!
