Last minute ideas for easy Halloween decor. Includes quick and budget friendly ideas for adding DIY Halloween decorations to your existing fall decor.
Up today are some ideas for easy Halloween decor that you can add to the fall decor you already have, without changing the existing decor one bit. I get just as much enjoyment out of things I do at the last minute as I do out of things that take a bunch of planning…sometimes even more. These DIY Halloween decorations are quick, and easy on the budget.
Halloween on the Porch
First up is the porch. When October rolls around, I’m ready to add pumpkins to our porch. I also like to make sure that whatever I add will work all the way to Thanksgiving.
I saw a beautiful wreath from Pottery Barn, and it was perfectly neutral…but way out of my price range. So I did what any self-respecting blogger would do…I made a knockoff! This neutral fall wreath idea was so simple, and I really enjoyed the process.
In addition to the wreath, I replaced the mums in my planters with neutral faux pumpkins. I left the existing ivy, and wrapped it around the base of the pumpkins to hold them in place.
Free Printable Wall Art
One of the easiest, and most budget-friendly, ways to add Halloween decor to your home is to frame free printables. I have put together a collection of Halloween printables exclusively for OSP email subscribers, and you can get access by filling out the form at the end of this post.
Festive Pillow Covers
One of my favorite (and one of the easiest) ways to add seasonal decor is to change out my pillow covers. Last year I used the dark orange lumbar pillows pictured above. The color might seem unexpected, but I love the way they popped off the neutral background.
Happy Halloween Printable Banner
I love seasonal decor that can go up quickly, and come down with absolutely no fuss. That’s what this Happy Halloween Banner is…easy, effortless, and possibly free Halloween decor. To give the banner a vintage feel, I used an antique script background and an Old English font. The letters are formatted to print two to a page, so there’s no paper waste.
Ideas for Easy Halloween Decor
- Add pumpkins.
- Add fun and festive pillow covers.
- Use pops of fall color. Another great idea is to use berries in autumnal tones, especially orange, to bring in a subtle touch of Halloween cheer. Place the stems in pitchers, pile them on a mantel or shelf, or make an arrangement in your favorite bowl.
- Take advantage of free printables!
