Seeking for the ways of decorating your home for Halloween? Whether you plan to have something extremely spooky or just want to have some fun, we are going to help you with the choice of Halloween wall decor and provide you with some recommendations on how to enhance the walls of your dwelling for this holiday.
So, let’s get down to business and consider some nice Halloween wall decorations ideas and tips on how to apply them.
Undoubtedly, Halloween-themed posters and pictures are the easiest way to decorate the walls for this holiday. They may feature a great number of things, from pumpkin photos and “Happy Halloween” prints to the ones with monsters and other frightening creatures.
A universal variant, which can be used for any home, office or any other place is the print of the pumpkin. It can be a photo as well as a funny cartoon image. If you consider a photo of a pumpkin to be too dull, opt for the prints with other details. For instance, a girl in a witch costume, which holds a pumpkin looks cute.
If you seek for something scarier, add the photos of zombies, ghosts, witches and other monsters. The more realistic print the better. Thus, a photo of a zombie with traces of blood on its hands and mouth is suitable for a scary Halloween wall. In addition, you can find many cool Halloween posters at our store.
Pumpkins for Halloween Walls
Clearly, pumpkin is traditional for Halloween decor. Though pumpkins are usually used everywhere in the house, except walls, we offer you to use them for wall decor. No, we aren’t talking about hanging them on ropes. There are several ways of using this classic Halloween item on walls.
It will be extremely cool if you have a collection of carved pumpkins, placed on the wall shelf. You are free to use real pumpkins as well as artificial ones. By the way, if you opt for artificial ones, you can buy not only the pumpkins, which look naturally, but also more creative ones like knitted pumpkins or the ones, covered with glitter. Moreover, you can add some other Halloween stuff to your pumpkins collection like ravens, bats and cobwebs.
Or, you can buy or make Halloween wall coverings in the form of pumpkins. They can be made of paper, wood, plastic or metal. A very convenient idea is to use wall stickers in the form of pumpkin silhouettes.
Decorations with Skeletons, Ghosts and Monsters
Basically, various scary creatures are as traditional decorations for Halloween as pumpkins. If you seek for the quickest way, buy a dummy of a ghost or skeleton. It’s better to give preference to the ones of the human size as they look more realistic. You can just hang them on the wall or arrange them more creatively like on the image above.
Also, small details in the forms of skeletons, witches, zombies and monsters can be used for other decorative pieces. For instance, a wreath is a cool example of Halloween wall decoration, which may feature all the details related to this holiday, from small artificial pumpkins to bloody hands and skeleton’s heads.
The wall stickers with the silhouettes of skeletons, ghosts and various monsters are rather widespread. You can buy them at various stores and use in different ways. Moreover, the stickers may be not only scary. Thus, the funny ghosts of the image above are so cute.
Moreover, there are many cool DIY Halloween wall decorations, which you can do with your own hands. For instance, a cool ghost can be made from a simple white piece of fabric or you can turn an ordinary dummy into something frightful.
Spiders, Bats, Black Cats and Ravens Decor
Many Halloween decorations feature spiders, bats, black cats and ravens. Very often the dummies of these animals are used for wall decor as well as throughout the house. They look great if several items are used.
Thus, one spider can make you feel scared. But the scariest effect will be reached when the wall and ceiling are covered with dozens of spiders. If you seek for the cheaper variant, buy not dummies but stickers with spiders’ silhouettes.
Halloween wall hangings with ravens look astonishing and realistic if these birds are placed on shelves, trees or other objects. For instance, you may use a sticker with the tree silhouette and a couple of ladders to provide “seats” for the raven dummies.
The bats wall decor can be easily created with your own hands. And you will need just a piece of black paper for that or the white one painted black on both sides. On the net, you can find the stencils of bats, which you can print and use for cutting your decorations. Once all the bats are cut, bend their wings for a more realistic look and attach to the wall.
Cobwebs and Blood Decor
As a rule, artificial blood serves as a supporting tool for Halloween wall decor. It can be applied to any other decoration for creating the horror feeling. However, it can be also used separately for creating scary paintings and the murder scene atmosphere.
The cobweb is often used for covering other Halloween wall decorations. It doesn’t look scary at all, but adds a special zest to the interior. You can create cool design in the corner between ceiling and wall and place a spider in the center of it. Also, it looks cute in Halloween wreaths designs.
So, are you ready to spookify your home with these cool wall Halloween decorations? The main plus of all these ideas is that they are suitable for any type of interior design and can be nicely combined with one another for creating the holiday atmosphere.
