| |

If you decorate your home for Halloween, then I have some festive Halloween decorations for your entry. Trick or treaters will appreciate your holiday home.

We all love to adorn our home with festive Halloween decorations. Your entry is a great place to get in the Halloween spirit.

Whether you are a youngster, a teenager, or a grown~up, Halloween brings out the kid in us. I may not don a costume or carry a trick or treat bag, but I do love getting in the mood for the holiday by giving our entry a Halloween look.

Ready to see ideas for using festive Halloween decorations for your entry? Let’s get started.

For this festive Halloween decor in our entry, I used both longtime decorations and new DIY projects.

I’m going to take you through decorating the entry from start to finish. Before I begin, let me show you first how I decorated the entry for early fall. Then to transition to Halloween, I brought in a black and white decorations. This charger was originally made for a fall tablescape.

Festive Halloween decorations for our entry begin with a blank slate. The first step I took was to remove everything from the commode in our entry. I did leave the wood slice wreath in place.

I decided to cover the top of the commode with my burlap tablecloth. You could use a piece of burlap or a runner that you have on hand.

If you saw my DIY Halloween decorations, you’ll recognize several of these festive Halloween decorations.

The first one I added was the spooky cat I made. I used jute twine to hang it to wood slice wreath with the black and white bow.

Next, I used the Halloween charger that I made. After Sweet Shark and I brought in all our boxes of Halloween decorations, I found one more white pumpkin and added it. I love the contrast between the white and black.

I also found the small hay bales that I bought last year. The gilded pumpkin was one of my most recent DIY projects.

TIP: Don’t take the plastic off the hay bales. Your surface will stay much neater. You can reuse the hay bales. I reused them this year on the nightstands in our blue and gold fall bedroom.

A small Halloween owl fits right in the hay bales. Then I added on of the witches from our collection.

This Halloween vignette on the right side of our commode was finished. Now I needed to create one on the left to balance it.

On the other side of the commode, I used two of my favorite witches. I like that one is standing and one is sitting.

Next, I added my DIY ghost and painted white pumpkins. This left side of the counter is starting to balance the right side of the commode.

Remember our fall yard sign? I replaced the original fall signs I made with the 3 new Halloween signs for our hay bales. The black and white check shawl was the perfect backdrop for the Halloween signs. and black and white pumpkins.

In our Halloween stash, I found a black and gold garland. It added some shiny texture to the mostly matte finishes in this Halloween vignette.

Halloween at night is especially festive. Our torchere lamps glow amber for an eerie look.
