Halloween is just a couple of days away and if you are still frantically searching around for ideas to decorate your home without spending a whole lot of time on it, then you definitely are in luck! One of the hottest Halloween trends this year is to go minimal with the home decorations and that means you can create a lot more impact with far less! Minimal Halloween decorations are all about moving away from an overload of orange, a vast array of carved pumpkins and the plethora of jack-o-lanterns that usually surround us. It is about still creating a touch of spookiness with a whole lot of class thrown into the mix.
Best minimal Halloween decorations still bring along with them the same, tried and tested motifs, but with a hint of difference in terms of aesthetics. You can still use the old bat cutouts, spider webs and creepy ghost images – but you now do them while making sure that the backdrop remains as uncluttered as possible. From banners, bats and small, white ghosts to a color palette that is steeped in black, this is a look at the trendiest and easiest minimal Halloween decorations that you can get done in absolutely no time at all –
Dark and Dashing!
One thing that is pretty easily noticeable with most minimal Halloween decorating ideas is the lack of orange in the midst. Even if orange finds its way in, you would want to tone down its impact and concentrate on the black elements of the decorations for a classier and more sophisticated look. Skulls in black, cut-outs and printables of crows, bats and rats (if you want some on your entryway!) and custom dinnerware on the table in black and silver are perfect for this chic look. We also love the idea of the super-easy Halloween wreath with twigs that is eerie and elegant at the same time.
Bats, Banners and Bold Wall Art
A simple banner on the wall is sometimes all you want (and need) in the living room to dress it up for Halloween. Combine a string of small white DIY ghosts on the wall with a few spider webs in the corner and some cut-outs of the witch on the broom set next to the window and you have things all done for Halloween! Sure, it will not be the spookiest home in the neighborhood, but you will still have enough to work with and considering we are so close to the day, that should be more than sufficient for the minimal look!
Time to Get Hands-on with Decorations
The easiest way to get things ready for Halloween on such short notice is to make your decorations at home. Sure, it might sound counter-productive at times. But it saves resources, is a whole lot of fun and surprisingly, often is a quicker process than choosing the right decorative pieces just before Halloween. You can get your kids involved as well with some of the easier DIYs and with Halloween on Sunday, you have plenty of time starting Friday evening to get things done. Embrace the minimal look and you will have the home ready for the creepiest night of the year in a jiffy!
