Adding Some Spooky Style
I’ll start by saying that this is my first year decorating my home for Halloween, so I’m not an expert by any means. However, I had so much fun decorating for Halloween this year and I want to share just how easy it is to give your home some spooky farmhouse style!
I was inspired by so many Instagram accounts that decorated for Halloween in a simple, fun way that I wanted to try it myself. I was most inspired by how Ashli at @ourcozycottage decorated her house for Halloween. She uses black and white to keep it simple and not overbearing, and it screams farmhouse style! Be sure to check out how she decorates her house for all of the seasons/holidays. Her style is gorgeous!
Bullseye Spot Bats!
I decided to use black and white buffalo check and some adorable little black bats that I found in the Target Bullseye Spot around the houses. These bats are felt, which means they can be used year after year, and the best part is that they came in packs of 6 for only $1.00! I only spent $4.oo to get all of the bats that you see in all of the photos here!
I found a few other items at the Target Bullseye Spot that were inexpensive and perfect for Halloween! I got a black wreath and a fake spooky tree, along with a set of two tea towels for $3.oo that I made into this October 31st pillow cover (I just used a hot glue gun!).
Hocus Pocus, I Need Coffee to Focus
I also found this Hocus Pocus sign and a Witches’ Brew light-up jar in the Target Bullseye Spot. I HATE scary movies, so Hocus Pocus is about the only movie that I watch for Halloween. I’ve watched it every Halloween since I was young, so I knew I wanted to make a Hocus Pocus themed coffee bar. You can check out a video of my entire Hocus Pocus coffee bar here.
I also found quite a few Rae Dunn Halloween mugs this fall that I couldn’t wait to display and use for my Halloween coffee bar. So many sweet friends helped my find the pieces that I was looking for this year! I wrote the quote “Hocus Pocus, I Need Coffee to Focus” on my chalkboard and added my DIY bead garland, as well as some pumpkins and a “Trick or Treat” banner from Hobby Lobby for some final spooky touches.
Halloween Table Setting
I added a buffalo check runner to my dining room table and some buffalo check napkins to keep with the black and white theme. I plan to use buffalo check through the holidays as well. It’s so versatile! I also found a creepy tree in the Target Bullseye Spot and used it with some lanterns and white pumpkins in my tablescape.
Overall, I didn’t spend very much at all to add some simple Halloween touches to my home. Sticking with a black and white theme really gives Halloween decor a farmhouse feel that isn’t over the top.
