Decorating Your Apartment for Halloween

Spooky season is finally here! There’s no better way to get in the Halloween spirit than by decorating your apartment. However, with so many decorations available, it can be hard to decide where to start. Do you want to create a scary environment or a fun, pumpkin-filled apartment? The options are endless! Check out these tips for decorating your apartment for Halloween!

Greet Guests with a Spooky Doormat

Set the Halloween scene before you enter your apartment with a spooky doormat! Websites like Etsy have some adorable doormats like this cute Ghost doormat or this fun dancing skeleton doormat! Or, select a themed doormat like this hilarious Hocus Pocus one. No matter which you choose, it’s a great way to show you’re in the Halloween spirit!

Fill the Front Door

No front porch? No problem! You can still fill your apartment front door with loads of decor. Cover it up with fake cobwebs and fake spiders, or find a fun wreath! You can also try this creative broomstick decor idea from Good Housekeeping to mimic the look of witches’ brooms on your door. This not only shows you’re in the spirit, but it also sets your apartment entrance apart from your neighbors’!

Light the Candles

A candlelit space can be both cozy and spooky. With that being said, fill your apartment with candles to add to the Halloween decor! Select fake flame candles so that you don’t have to worry about lighting and blowing out dozens of candles. These candles from Amazon are remote-controlled and come with 9 candles to help you fill your space with candlelight. Not to mention, they will seamlessly transition into winter holiday decor.

Take the Decorating to Your Balcony

Luckily, having a patio or a balcony allows plenty of room for outdoor decor. Line the railings with orange or purple string lights. Or, go to the pumpkin patch to pick out some pumpkins and lay them out on your porch! Take creativity to the next level with these floating witch hats by Polkadot Chair. Now, when you sit outside on your balcony, you’ll be transported to a Halloween-filled world!

Spice Up the Kitchen

Another easy way to decorate your apartment for Halloween is by adding some small decorations and items throughout the kitchen. First, swap out the usual hand towels for some fun, spooky ones like this adorable dog hand towel or this dancing skeleton hand towel from Etsy. Next, use old bottles or purchase glass bottles and put these unique animal apothecary labels on them to transform your kitchen into a spooky witches’ lair. The simplest decor of all? Simply put some candy corn out in glass jars to add a touch of color!

Now that October is here, it’s time to start decorating your apartment for Halloween! Light the candles, pick out the pumpkins, and string the lights to get in the holiday spirit.
