indoor diy halloween decor

After I finished getting my front porch decorated for fall, I hit the entryway of the inside of my house. In case you missed it, you can check out my fall front porch decor HERE. Our kids love decorating for Halloween, and my sweet seven year old was such an enthusiastic helper. After some planning and preparation, here's the indoor DIY Halloween decor that we came up with!

I started with a color scheme in mind. I wanted a neutral color scheme with some contrast so I went with black, white, and gold. A few years ago I made a set of paper bats using a bat die, my Evolution Advanced manual die cutting tool, and some black glitter cardstock. You can check out that post HERE. My daughter and I taped those on the wall as a spooky backdrop for our Halloween vignette.



Then we added some loose cheesecloth dyed in grey that I found at Walmart. We hit the 50% off Halloween sale at Michael's and came home with the tombstone chalkboard, spiderweb candle, and "wicked" sign. Not only were they all half off, but we also got another 20% off of that. Score!


To dress up the plain black tombstone chalkboard I used my Silhouette Cameo to create a faux chalk sign. Tutorial coming soon! I didn't want all the black to overwhelm our Halloween display so I spray painted the "wicked" sign gold. I love how it turned out!


To add in some white, I took one of my old craft pumpkins painted it white along with a few sticks from my backyard. Then I created some accents with gold spray paint and washi tape. I'll share a tutorial on that project soon.


I love how the pumpkin and sticks tie in the gold and add some bright contrast to the grouping.


My gold candles and wall sconces fit in perfectly with the mix. I love the chic and creepy feel of our DIY Halloween decor this year. Some of my favorite so far!
