“Spooky… but not too spooky!” These were the directions 5 year old Little A gave me while we were planning our Halloween decor this year. We don’t usually decorate too much for Halloween, but this year we wanted to do a few things to make our house look “spooky, but not too spooky” for the season!
I thought the perfect room to decorate with some Halloween inspired items was our new dining room.
Using some inexpensive items from a dollar store and some things I already had on hand, I made this room look nice and spooky… but not too spooky!
On the table, I draped a DIY buffalo check table runner over a dollar store Halloween table cloth. For the centerpiece, I put some dollar store Halloween flowers and twigs from our yard in a black pumpkin bucket.
The sideboard features some more inexpensive faux Halloween foliage from the dollar store along with mini garden pumpkins, black lanterns I had in my stash, and twigs from our yard in vases. I made our mirror look deliciously spooky with an inexpensive net draped over it.
To decorate the wall around the mirror a little, I used my Cricut to cut out some bat shapes (I used this free cut file), and I simply taped them in place.
Our dining room is spooky… but not too spooky for Halloween this year! I love this gothic glam look, and it’s a fun way to decorate for the season.
