Spooky Fall Decor

I usually don’t go all out on decorating for the holidays. Of course there are a few times a year that get a little more festive than others, but typically, for Fall, we only decorate a few pumpkins and call it a day. However, after reading Bre’s post (25 No Mantel Fall Decor Ideas), I decided to get a little creative spooky and add some fun decor to our console table.

I don’t really know what to call this area. It is just around the corner from our foyer and at the bottom of the stairs. Is it an entryway? Hall? Or something else? $5 goes to the person who can correctly label this space. Kidding!

To decorate the area, I pulled together a lot of items from around the house and also grabbed a few items from the dollar store (candles, crow, etc.) You may recognize the Cable Spool Clock and the Budget Friendly Glass Hurricane.

I decided to add the bats after I remembered that we had shared a great bat printable last year. They add a little something extra. I printed, cut out, and then traced it onto black card stock. And as far as placement, I decided just to wing it. Ha ha!

So what do you think? Did we nail it or is this table scape just a bit too batty for you?

    I love that this is fun but not over the top. I don’t typically do Halloween decor. I just do fall and keep it up through Thanksgiving, but I think I am going to at least do my front porch this year since we will have lots of trick or treaters!

    That crate looks bigger than the ones at Michaels…where’d you get it? And I LOVE your spooky decor. That clock goes perfect with the bats.
