If you’ve ever attempted to decorate an apartment for the holidays, you know how difficult it can be at times. Having a smaller space to work with complicates things; adding decorations to an already-crammed space can make your living space appear even smaller. Fortunately, there are many Halloween apartment decorations ideas that won’t take up too much space in your home. Let’s get started!
Spooky Spider Web Wreaths
This is such a simple and enjoyable project to complete at home! Choose a bare wreath that fits your style and wrap it with faux cobwebs or spiderwebs from any craft store. Add some fake spiders for added spookiness, or simply browse the aisles of your local craft store for the perfect haunting accessories for your apartment!
Mini light strings have become holiday decorating “must-haves.” They can liven up your Halloween decorations. You can twist these tiny light strings in among other decorations because they are so flexible. They’ll be a lively, unexpected addition to your table.
Cute Fall Decorations
Make your balcony cute if Halloween isn’t your thing. Get a bunch of pumpkins and paint them in your favorite patterns in oranges, browns, golds, blacks, and whites. Fill wooden apple crates with leaves, pumpkins, and place candles inside. Make a gold-sprayed Halloween wreath out of sticks, leaves, and whatever else you can find.
Treats and Tricks
One of the most basic Halloween apartment decorating ideas you can use this year? Dishes for display Simply take a pumpkin, skull, or other spooky-shaped dish, fill it to the brim with your favorite Halloween baked goods or other sweet recipes, and place it somewhere visible to your guests! Just be prepared for it to be empty at the end of the night; vampire fangs aren’t the only teeth that appear on Halloween to bite. Those sweet tooths will be out in full force as well!
For Spooky Atmosphere, Use Black Netting or Tulle
Drape this relatively inexpensive fabric throughout your room to add to the dark and gloomy atmosphere. When the lights are low, you’ll be surprised at how many ways this lightweight material can be used to create interesting depth and shadows.
Hang cheesecloth-draped balloons from the ceiling for an eerie decoration that moves as you walk around. Another Halloween decoration idea that requires no floor space in a small apartment. The unexpected movement of these ghosts may even startle you!
The Pumpkin Festival
Come on, it wouldn’t be a list of Halloween apartment decorating ideas without the ultimate Halloween symbol! When you think of Halloween—or, really, fall in general—one of the first things that comes to mind is going to the pumpkin patch to find the perfect jack-o-lantern for your porch…or, if you don’t have a porch or balcony, your table.
If you want to decorate delicately, get some mini pumpkins and pie pumpkins instead of the friendly orange giants; you can scatter these teeny fruits on your shelves, end table, coffee table, or even put a few together as part of a centerpiece on your dining table! Pumpkins are simple but versatile; you can leave them as-is, carve some grotesque grins on their faces, or paint them to reduce the amount of work and mess you have to put into the décor this year.
In any case, pumpkins are a low-cost and simple way to get your apartment into the Halloween spirit. These Halloween section kings cannot be ignored; no matter how much they are hyped up, they will never be overdone, and you must include at least one in your setup this year!
