1. undecorate before you decorate

Take your normal picture frames off the walls and decorations off all the surfaces including tables, counters, and shelves.   

When you add Halloween decorations on top of your normal décor, the result looks cluttered and confused.  

Put all the focus on your Halloween decorations by making them the center of attention. Fill empty spots that other picture frames left by hanging Halloween plates or spooky decorations.

From ghosts to mummies to witches or simply decorating with pumpkins, a cohesive theme can make your decoration shopping easier.

3. Decorate with Halloween Pumpkins

We all love the classic Jack-O-Lanterns, but pumpkins can be used in many different ways for Halloween decor.  For a more chic look, try painting pumpkins, or using glue with glitter or buttons.  

Pumpkins can be used outside as a welcome sign after being painted, or inside as table or mantelpiece Halloween decor.

You could also try a creepy black and green color scheme or go sophisticated with black and silver.
