Hey y’all! Today I’m going to share how I’m adding Halloween to Fall decor. I know that not everyone decorates for Halloween. I get it! We don’t do creepy here at the Castle, but we do have fun. I love the cute little Trick Or Treaters that come to the door. The fun colors and the magic of getting to eat all the candy for just one night.
What I DON’t love is tearing down all of my Fall just to put up Halloween.
I mean, I just got my home decorated for Fall!
So over the years I’ve learned how to add a little Halloween here and there for some fun.
So here’s how I do it.
The Front Door Area
When Fall comes around I buy some mums and plop them in a Jack- o -lantern bucket – with the face turned to the back!
When it’s time for Halloween I just turn it around so that you see the happy cut out faces!
I pull out the metal corn plant stakes that I put in the mums for Fall and add these adorable, jiggly spider duos.
They are just so happy!
Remember these cute hand painted pumpkins from my Fall decor?
If not you can see the entire porch decorated for Fall here.
I just switched out the Fall bows on both of the pumpkins to bows that have a more Halloween theme.
It doesn’t get any simpler than that!
I switched out my door mat to this sweet little trick or treat one!
The Fall wreath was replaced with this Ghost tear drop hanger that I made a few years ago.
I love it!
My home sign got the cutest little bat charm added to it…
I love being able to change these out!
The Front Porch Gallery
The rocking chairs stayed the same with a few exceptions.
Ethel and Lula Skeleton love sitting out in the rockers getting ready to ride their brooms!
All Fall decor stayed the same, I just plopped the skeletons onto the chairs and added a few embellishments.
For years I’ve had these witches hats hang on the front porch with small tiny remote controlled candles inside.
I love the ease of turning them off and on with a remote!
They work great at Christmas time too!
As you can see adding Halloween to Fall decor really couldn’t be easier.
All it takes is a little planning ahead and less than an hour of time.
Best of all, I still get to keep most of my Fall decor!
Until next time…
