5 Creepy Halloween Decorations You Have to Try

Halloween Decor

Everyone loves Halloween parties, but they’re always so much better if the decorations actually spook you! We’ve formed a list of the creepiest, spookiest Halloween decorations and the secrets to creating them!

1. Potions Cart



To start out with one of the best, turn your bar cart (that would be stuffed in a corner anyway) into a potion cart! To really achieve a high level of spookiness, make sure to include many jars full of “ingredients,” such as cockroaches, pickled mice, swamp lizard, eyeballs, poison, etc. Get creative with it! Print out a potions book label and cover a book from your library. To give it that extra edge, place ravens on a couple jars to make it look like they’re just hanging out there.

2. Rustic Raven Porch



The outside of your house is definitely just as important as the inside decorations! Make sure your front porch matches the inside by adding some large branches, cream and black pumpkins, and ravens strategically placed on the branches. It has a rustic look almost as if the house is abandoned.

3. Zombie Baby Dolls



Your guests will be sure your home isn’t abandoned from the zombie baby dolls walking about in your front yard. Take your old baby dolls, or if those have sentiment attached to them, buy some at a thrift store, and rough them up a bit. Rip the clothes, pull some of their hair out, and paint scars using blood paint from a Halloween store. Everyone is scared of zombie dolls no matter what they say.

4. Bloody Handprints



This is very simple and easy to do. Using the same blood paint from the Halloween store, place bloody handprints on the glass doors to look like someone has been dragged away. It’s a classic decoration that is sure to give the whole room a spooky feel.

5. Emerging Head Frame



This last idea is extra creepy! Buy a Styrofoam mannequin head, or use a baby doll head, and glue cheesecloth to it. When it is all glued to the cheesecloth, tape the rest of the cheesecloth to the picture/mirror to make it appear as if the head is emerging from the wall.

Get the Look: Old Hollywood Glamour


There’s always been something special about the old ways and looks of Hollywood. From the pearls to the faux fur and those classic ruby red lips, what is there not to love?! For all of those who agree, we have a few ways to bring that ambiance into your home. Although a lot of old Hollywood glamour involved fashion, interior design was an important trend as well. Contrary to popular belief, what you wear and how you wear it coincides with the design of your home’s interior! As fashion and interior design collide, we have a few tips to show you how to add that special glamour of old Hollywood into your space.

Mix those metals – Whoever said metals shouldn’t be mixed hasn’t glimpsed at the magic that happens when a room is filled with gold and silver details accompanied by mirrors and crystal. The result is a beautifully opulent room!



Add a fur (or faux fur) throw – Tossed about on a chair or couch, this room accessory makes any snuggling instantly more glamorous.  (This luxury can also be in the form of a pillow or rug.)



Pick the perfect color palette – The go-to-never-fail feminine color palette tends to be camel, ivory, and soft pink. We like to also adding small bits of blue here and there (it adds depth.)



Art deco lines + plush furniture = AN OLD GLAMOUR MUST – Balance out more comfy couches and chairs with sleek, art deco pieces like tables, bar carts, coffee tables, mirrors, etc.


Set up a liquor/wine bar – Set the bar with alcohol, crystal glasses, and an ice bucket. What ALWAYS happens in every hold Hollywood movie? A cocktail making moment. *Not a cocktail fan? A lovely tea set works well too.*
