A Simple Idea For Halloween Decor

This has got to be the simplest way to decorate for Halloween! Give your home that "abandoned" look and cover the furniture in old white sheets. When the sun goes down, the candlelit room casts an eerie glow on the white sheets making them almost look like ghostly figures. 

I'm a lover of deep, dark hues in home decor but I found myself gravitating towards using a lot of white for Halloween. I was surprised since I've been so into black lately you would think that I would continue to use black right into Halloween. But, I'm sort of a "expect the unexpected" type of person and sort of do things "backwards" so actually it's no surprise to me that I ditched most of the black for my creepy decor and opted for white. I think it makes sense actually, considering that mummies, ghosts and skeletons are usually white! I guess I'm dreaming of a whiiiitte... Halloween??? (I just realized my 2017 Christmas decor was black...and my Halloween decor white??? I told you I'm all sorts of backwards!)

IN LOVE with how these entomology cloches came out! Did you happen to catch my DIY Bug Cloche post ? I created them using dollar store toy bugs! Can you believe how beautiful they turned out? You can check out the details by clicking HEREđŸ•·

The design for my Halloween decor started with my DIY Skeleton Garland on the fireplace. I think the fireplace is my favorite part of this year's Halloween decor. Or...or is it the bugs..?

Oh, and just to let you know, I don't leave the sheets up during the whole month of October, LOL. I drape the sheets on the furniture the morning of Halloween and everything comes down and gets stored away the following day. I just wanted to show you what it will look like :) . The rest of the Halloween decor like the mantel and bugs do stay up for a few weeks in October since those are easy to live with and don't really get in the way.

Can you believe how much "ambiance" you get with a bunch of skeletons, candles and some old wrinkly sheets? It's always the simplest things that can have the biggest impact ;)
