Halloween Top 5 Decorating Tips

Written by: Emily Rayner

Halloween is such an exciting time of year with creepy films, darker nights and crisp Autumn weather. We believe that it shouldn’t just be the kids who get to enjoy this time of year, so we’ve popped together our top 5 tips to really make the most out of the spooky season and create a home to die for!

1. Embrace your Entrance

Your entrance is the first thing you and your guests see when arriving at your home. Add a seasonal wreath or some seasonal black lanterns to your porch or hallway to create an instant Halloween glow. Pair with one of our cute yet creepy outdoor pumpkins to greet your guests and passers-by at the door!

2. Perfect Pumpkins

It goes without saying that it wouldn’t be Halloween without a pumpkin or two! Halloween doesn’t just have to be spooky décor, for inside the home we love to display mottled brass or tinted glass pumpkins for a classy yet seasonal glow. The pumpkin lights can be displayed anywhere in your home to bring a cosy atmosphere to those cold Autumn nights.

3. Creepy Candles

Making simple changes to your home is a great way to transition into the Halloween spirit. Switching out your usual candles for Halloween ones is a great way to add a spooky and subtle seasonal touch to your home. Made from real wax, our TruGlow® candles are great to add an eerie atmosphere to your room whilst ensuring your home is still super safe.

4. Frightening Fairy Lights

Fairy lights are amazing at adding a delicate, yet effective and creepy ambience to your space. There's lots of different ways you can incorporate fairy lights into your décor, whether you want to drape them from shelves or entwine them through other decorations, adding that gentle glow elevates your Halloween look. From pumpkin lights to black cats, our Halloween range this year has a wide variety of fairy lights to complement your home no matter your style.

5. Spooktacular Stakes

Halloween doesn’t (and shouldn’t) be limited to the inside of your home. Give your trick or treaters a fright by adding some spine-chilling characters to your garden. Our range of light up stakes are sure to give your garden a Halloween glow up and are perfect at creating a spooky walkway to greet your brave guests.
