I’m super excited to share a quick tour of our home with some Fall and Halloween decorations! I’m a little late posting this but better late than never! I was busy crafting a few new items for our Fall home tour with Halloween decor. I just love decorating for Halloween because you can make things up as you go along. All of our Halloween decorations were either purchased at the Dollar Tree or handmade by me. Be sure to check out my post 25+ Dollar Store Halloween Decor Ideas for more creative ideas!
We switched our family room and living room furniture around over the summer because the smaller sofa was not working to seat our family of 4 on movie night! So we switched the sofas in each room and everyone is happy!
I update this gallery wall in our living room seasonally. I added a wreath and some hand made Halloween decorations to existing artwork. If you would like to see previous ways that I’ve updated this gallery wall, check out this patriotic gallery wall for July 4th or learn how to create a gallery wall here.
One of the Fall projects I was working on for this post was turning some dollar store plastic bins into these burlap bins for this shelf. A future post is coming soon for the tutorial so subscribe here to find out how I made them!
Here is the view of the living room from the front door and foyer.
Our foyer is really kinda boring. We never use the front door so the only thing we have there is this antique family heirloom secretary desk. It’s one of the only pieces of furniture in our home that I have not painted (besides the dining and kitchen tables).
We keep our Amazon Echo on the top of this desk so I hid it behind this decor. I don’t like clutter so I only ever store a few items in the glass cabinet.
I love using wreaths around our home – they are not just for the front door you know?! I hang them in windows, on artwork, on tables, in front of the fireplace, on a cabinet, etc. It’s an easy way to add more color and flowers to your home. I made the wreath in the below picture using a twig wreath and tying on some Fall floral stems. The Fall bunting on the fireplace is available to print HERE.
I use a variety of fake pumpkins and real pumpkins. You can’t tell fake pumpkins from a real pumpkin these days! Create a cozy Fall home by adding lots of layers like cozy blankets and pillows on your sofa and chairs.
Here’s a view from the family room into the kitchen.
I used mason jars in the kitchen window with some faux flowers in Fall colors.
We’ve been eating a lot of apples these days since they are in season (I’ve been mastering baking apple pie and this healthy apple crisp!) and they also give the kitchen a Fall feel 🙂 The book next to the stove is my meal planner and I made those mini pine cone wreaths hanging on the cabinets using pine cones from our back yard! A future tutorial post is coming soon for the mini pine cone wreath so subscribe here to find out how I made them!
I’ve also been baking pumpkin scones every weekend (trying to use up the leftover frozen pumpkin puree from last Winter!). The recipe that I use is from Damn Delicious and is a Starbucks copy cat recipe (but the hubby says they are much better than theirs!)… we skip the icing on top for a healthier scone 🙂 BTW, if you are looking for a super easy way to make your own pumpkin puree, check out this post! I usually just bake it in the oven but that tutorial makes me want an Instant Pot for sure!
Here’a view into the kitchen from the foyer hallway and breakfast table.
This dresser and shelving is behind the breakfast table. The framed Fall subway art below is available to print HERE.
I created a “snack station” on this wine rack dresser in the corner of the kitchen. I used 3 large pickle jars (we get our pickles from Costco), painted the lid and added snacks and labels. These labels are handmade from cereal boxes (or chipboard), chalkboard vinyl and twine.
Our mudroom is in the hallway that connects the kitchen and the dining room (and enters from the garage). We basically gutted a large pantry closet and turned it into a walk-in mudroom for less than $30 (you can find the full post with before and after pictures HERE). Well that project was 2 years ago and this year we decided to add a built-in bench and shelf to make it more permanent.
The galvanized bins are from Walmart. I cut some chalkboard vinyl in the shape of labels and stuck to the front of each bin (use my free printable labels here to use as a template to cut your own!). Of course our mudroom does not always look like this – we have 2 kids that use this space as a dumping ground but I prefer that over leaving stuff all over the house.
Here is a view coming in from the garage door – which is painted with chalkboard paint 🙂
Our dining room is the spooky Halloween room in the house, while I left the rest of the house ready for Thanksgiving.
The Halloween banner is available to print HERE.
The small gray pumpkins in the tray are from the dollar store and painted with ASCP French Linen. The Eat Drink and Be Scary sign is a DIY using my Cricut Explore and scrap wood. The back of the sign is red and white and says “Eat Drink and Be Merry” so I can use it again for Christmas.
I made this simple no sew bat wreath for the front door using a styrofoam wreath, wrapped it with burlap ribbon, black paper bats (cut with my Cricut Explore) and sewing pins pushed through as the bat’s eyes. I pinned a gray paper circle to the back as a moon and hung it with yellow ribbon.
We still have our yellow rocking chairs by the front door from Summer. I added some yellow mums and made some glow-in-the dark Trick/Treat signs (using my Cricut Expore and scrap boards). The back of these signs are also painted with “MERRY” and “BRIGHT” in red and white so I can use them for Christmas decor too!
I also sewed these burlap spider pillows and used my Cricut to cut a spider stencil that I painted on each pillow with fabric paint then Scotchgarded them. The back of the pillows have red leaves painted on them so I can flip them around for the remainder of Fall.
I hope you enjoyed taking a peek into our home for Fall and Halloween! Remember to check out my post 25+ Dollar Store Halloween Decor Ideas for more creative Halloween decor ideas!
