5 Elegant Halloween Décor Ideas

Halloween is just around the corner and a lot of people are looking for new and trendy ways to spruce up their homes for the ghoulish night. From fancy skulls to stylish candlesticks, here are five ways to decorate your home for a sophisticated Halloween this season. 

Sparkling Skulls

Skulls have been a symbol of Halloween for centuries but this year, using this classic icon to decorate will give your home a festive yet trendy feel. Find black, white or bedazzled skulls to place anywhere in your home. Put them on your mantel or in your front foyer to greet guests – they’re sure to make a statement!

Change Up Your Glassware

This may sound like a strange idea but switching up your glassware is a great way to add a little Halloween flair to your festivities. Whether your wine glasses have bats or your whiskey glasses have witches, having seasonal glassware is fun, decorative and bound to amuse your guests.

Hang Spook-tacular Lights

They may not be red, white and green but hanging strands of black, orange or red lights will add extra style to your Halloween décor, and a spooky mood setting. This idea works well both inside and outside your home.

Knick-Knacks and Banners, Oh My!

Halloween knick-knacks are a fun addition to anyone’s home but sticking to a colour scheme will bring an added sense of elegance to your décor. This year, black and white is a popular choice, compared to the familiar black and orange. When looking for a new knick-knack to add to your collection, consider purchasing or making a banner you can hang from your mantel. They’re a great way to add a little fun to your fireplace.

Creepy Candlesticks

Candelabras are a haunted house necessity. To add some creepy sophistication to your front foyer or dining room, add candelabras. You can find them at any thrift shop and spray paint them your favourite Halloween colours.
