For 2018 my Halloween decor was classic black and orange. This year I decided I wanted to do something “crazy” and add pink. Well, one thing led to another and pink Halloween decor turned into an eclectic Halloween home.
In my home tour below, you’ll find a mix of DIY projects, thrifted and vintage items, and a few things from stores like Target and Michaels. Additionally, I’ve linked to sources where possible.

Kitchen Halloween decor
In the kitchen, I stuck to the color scheme to keep it looking neat. After I set up the table with black, white, orange, and pink, I decided a bottle of rosé would add the perfect finishing touch. I just grabbed what looked pretty at Aldi. I don’t think I’ll actually be sipping rosé out of a hurricane glass through a paper straw, but it might make a fun pink cocktail mixer.
You can barely see them in this photo, but the kitchen towels on the stove are pink flamingoes dressed in Halloween costumes.
The dining area is a basic white tablecloth with a spiderweb runner, black placemats and napkins, and pink plates. Many of these items just came from my entertaining stash or somewhere else in my house.

- white tablecloth – Oriental Trading
- black spiderweb table runner – JoAnn
- white pumpkin cookie jar – Goodwill
- hurricane glasses – Dollar Tree
- orange mason jar – DIY rainbow mason jar candles
- black and white paper straws – Amazon.com
- pink square paper plates – Amazon.com

I didn’t do much other decorating in the kitchen, but I hung these paper poms in the windows and strung some pink lights around the frames.

- bright pink fairy lights – Big Lots
- pink glitter spiders – Dollar Tree
Living room Halloween decor
In the living room, I actually started by completely emptying all my shelves. Then I put things back, one shelf at a time while adding the Halloween decor. I tried to make each shelf a sort of stand-alone vignette.
I love the idea of having a seasonal tree up year-round that’s decorated for each holiday. Although I haven’t done that yet, I did put up two miniature trees to decorate for Halloween this year.
The first one is this black tree decorated with pink glittery ornaments that have spiderwebs and eyeballs. The garland is just an old plastic lei that I cut.
- black tree – At Home
- glitter/eyeball ornaments – Dollar Tree
- pumpkins – part of my Magical Halloween Party Theme
I made the paper bats several years ago by printing a shape I found online and then tracing it onto black construction paper. The smaller ones were wood cutouts that I spraypainted for a Halloween party. They’re stuck to the wall with Loctite Fun-Tak.
I love having a letterboard that I can change out seasonally or whenever I feel like it. Sometimes the kids get into it too and surprise me with a funny message.
- jack-o-lantern boy – Michaels Halloween 2018
- cat mug – Goodwill
It’s important to me that even though there’s a lot of decorating going on here that the shelves are still practical. That’s why you see my television and all the messy game consoles above.
The white boxes hold the actual video games, controllers, and accessories. I’ve also got books I love throughout the room. The ones on the metal shelves are the “prettier” ones and the wooden shelf you’ll see below has a few double rows of paperbacks.
I also used quite a bit that isn’t technically Halloween decor. That orange-green-yellow basket is a Goodwill find that I use year-round, but it also happens to match my Halloween decor.
The wood box holds all my incense. Like a lot of my decor and craft supplies, it came from Michaels.
The candy in the cat is Pumpkin Pie Kit-Kats. They’re pretty good if you like pumpkin-flavored things.

The shelving is the focal point of the living room. For the seating area, I mostly just swapped the covers on my everyday throw pillows for Halloween ones I found at the Texas Pinners Convention in 2018.
The big jack-o-lantern and the vintage cat candy dish are both from my local antique shop. The purple jack-o-lantern bucket is a Goodwill find.
DIY macrame spider web
I put together this spider web in about 30 minutes while teaching myself macrame. I just followed this tutorial for alternating half-hitch knots from Macrame UK.
To make it look like a web, I started with an odd number of strands and dropped one on the right edge with each row.
- glitter spiders – Dollar Tree
- solar dancing characters – collected over time but there are plenty on Amazon.com
Candy corn Halloween tree
Last Christmas my oldest child swapped her cutesy pink tree for the black one above. Of course, I claimed the pink one for my own Halloween home decor. If you’ve never tried decorating a Halloween tree, it’s fun and easy to do with a mini Christmas tree.
The ornaments were super simple to make. I just filled clear plastic globes with candy corn. The kids will eat them over the holiday season so there won’t be any sticky mess in storage.
Skeleton printable art
I had the Halloween home decor in the living room about 75 percent done when I asked my son what else he thought it needed. Being 13, he said “memes.”
If you have a tween or teen, you’ve probably heard or seen this video about 1001 times. It’s an old clip from Disney’s Silly Symphonies called The Skeleton Dance that’s had the original music replaced by a children’s song from the 90s by Andrew M. Gold called “Spooky Scary Skeletons.”
So I made a printable that includes the opening lyrics, “Spooky scary skeletons send shivers down your spine” and a troop of dancing skeletons using clipart from Freepik.com.
If your Halloween decor needs memes, you can download this printable by clicking HERE. It’s 8.5×11 inches and black and white, but I printed mine on pink cardstock and trimmed it down to fit in an 8×10-inch frame.
