Neutral Halloween Decor and DIY Garland


Hello friends.  Sorry for the light posting this week but we had some family needs to take care of.  Don’t you love it when life happens?

I enjoy decorating with neutrals during the holidays and trying to repurpose or DIY most of my decor. Since we have 70% of our belongings in long term storage, including our halloween decor,  I did my best to shop the house and “dollar tree” for fun Fall/ Halloween decor that matched our decorating style.

I bought some pom pom makers a while back and was excited to use them for Halloween garland.  I created three different sizes of pom poms for the first strand.  They were strung on to yarn with a needle threader.

For the second garland,  I used thicker yarn for a different texture and thread it onto white cording.

They are hanging in the official garland corner with a chalkboard pumpkin and a little black and white flower arrangement.  (I just replaced a few flowers with more pom poms.)We have white candles sitting on tall candle pillars by the tv.   I snazzed them up with black electrical tape for fun black and white stripes.  Super easy and quick!On the other side of the tv, I reused some faux purple buds in a sea-glass vase.

My DIY copper pumpkins (you can find them HERE) made a reappearance under the tv.  This time I turned them around so the little jack-o-lantern faces show.  Tis the season!

The 100 Yen store had some metallic orange jack-o-lanterns that I snagged and spray painted black for our sofa table. 


All of my black and white textiles are currently out in the living room. 


Our new rescue kitty even matches! 


He is affectionately called Meow Meow and is the first cat I have owned.  I had no idea they were so much fun! 


My thrifted polka dot fabric makes a great Halloween table runner.  


I love how the warm tones all seem to match and are a nice contrast to the pops of black and white.

The foyer has more color and I can’t wait to show you how it turned out next week!
