The Art of Darkness

Quick Decorating Ideas

August 28th, 2008 by Cobwebs

BirdcagesThe Better Homes and Gardens site has a slideshow and project instructions for spooky decorations. Some are rather twee, but there are several that would be appropriate for year-round decorations in a gothy house. I particularly like this birdcage display and these easy chair covers.

They also have a feature on outdoor decorations. These don’t lend themselves quite as well to year-round decorating, but there are some attractive seasonal suggestions such as this raven pumpkin.

Also check out their Halloween craft ideas for some easy projects and inspiration.

I love this time of year. All of the mainstream magazines trot out their Halloween ideas and for a while there’s an embarassment of decorating riches.

    I love this time of year too. Also, the Martha Stewart website has a lot of good Halloween ideas.

    Other than the obvious Christmas for decorating, Halloween is the only holiday I will decorate for so thanks for the great ideas! It’s always good to get ideas early because I find I wait until the last minute and then don’t do too well,

    I love your blog, by the way! Thanks for stopping by mine and saying hi.
