Black and White Halloween Decor

Sharing is caring!

Black and white Halloween decor is a popular color scheme for any Halloween party or just for decorating your home for the spooky season.

Here are a few easy decorating ideas for adding black and white to your Halloween home!

This classic combo creates a variety of looks, from spooky and eerie to chic and sophisticated.

Instead of orange jack-o-lanterns or pumpkins, you can bring in white pumpkins or stick with orange for a pop of color.

The orange pumpkin looks gorgeous in the mantel sign below.

Read on for all the details about this stunning oversized sign. I’m pretty obsessed with it!

Black and White Halloween Decor

One of the many things I love about Halloween is you can step out of your comfort zone with decorating and just have FUN with it.

How many times a year can you decorate with skeletons, spider webs, bats, and ghosts? Why not go for it?

This year I was inspired to decorate with a classic black and white color scheme just perfect for Halloween.

Halloween Living Room

Let’s start in the living room where we spend most of our time after work.

If you’ve visited here before you know I live with my 26 yo daughter Amanda.

She is finishing up grad school and working as a family counselor. I’m so proud of her. It is a difficult, but rewarding, job!

I’m enjoying this stage in life where we have more of a friendship than a parent/child role.

We have had so many laughs sitting on this sofa watching scary movies or our favorite series.

Amanda will be getting her place soon enough so I am cherishing this time.

She has a slight obsession with all things Halloween, and since this is our first Halloween in our new home, we decided to go a little extra this year.

The bat pillow is a DIY project inspired by one I saw at Pottery Barn. It is a super easy no-sew project if you want to make your own.

My daughter bought the darling ghost pillow at Homegoods and I was so excited when she brought it home. It’s so cute and kind of reminds me of Pac-man.

Decocrated Halloween Box

The wood and iron hanging shelves are from Decocrated a home decor solution box that is sent quarterly and also includes a seasonal box.

The adorable boo ghosts, Happy Halloween wood sign, and bright and colorful deep orange pillows are all from the Halloween add-on box.

A couple of black and white pumpkins from Target and a few dollar store finds were all the shelves needed to add a festive touch to our home.

How cute is that little ghost? Love him.

These shelves are so versatile. You can see how I decorated the same shelves for fall HERE.

Paper bats are all the rage this Halloween season. They are all over Pinterest and  TikTok. I picked up a couple of packs of paper bats at Target in their dollar spot.

Check out the full tutorial for the bat wreath HERE. A few more bats were hung around a spooky haunted house lighted sign.

I simply stuck them to the wall with the included glue dots.

This isn’t the best picture, but this sign looks so cool at night lit up.

It is on a timer that is set to turn on at 8:00 p.m. each night-right when we sit down for our nightly shows.

You may notice a few of my bats are missing. I have to add a few more glue dots to keep them up.

Halloween Mantel

Now for the star of the show-the incredible Hallow Acres canvas from Tailored Canvases.

This baby is big and measures 60″x30″! There are several different sizes, but I wanted something to cover the “black box” or television over the mantel.

My television is 50″ wide. This large wall sign covers the entire television and leaves room to decorate around it too!

Look how boring the mantel looks without the sign or any decorations:

Check out the instant makeover by placing the canvas in front of the television:

Halloween Banner

Achieve a wow factor by adding a Halloween trick-or-treat banner and a few festive decorating pieces.

The banner and the lanterns that flank the mantel are also from Decocrated.

We do have a plan to add a sliding bracket above the television similar to what is used in barn doors, but for now, we simply slide the canvas over and place it behind the chair to the left of the mantel.

Because we only watch television at night it’s not a big deal.

I have also partnered with Tailored Canvases for a holiday sign that can stay up from November 1st-February, so I have a good part of the year covered with these 2 wall signs.

The holiday sign may even be more spectacular than this one, but it’s a tough call.

I will be hosting a Facebook Live in partnership with Tailored Canvases in November.

I’ll add the date shortly and hope you will watch it.

I will be revealing the holiday canvas and sharing a fun craft showing how you can add a little extra detail to your canvas.

I’m so excited for you to see this beauty! Now for a few more details about the Halloween canvas.

Halloween Wall Sign

The sign was customized with “EST 1988”, the year I was married.

When the kids were small, we would visit a local Halloween Haunted Trail and pumpkin patch each year, so this canvas has a bit of sentimental meaning to us.

The detail in the sign is incredible, especially in person. The bats look ready to fly off the canvas.

I love that you can customize it however you like.

Because of the size, I was a little nervous about shipping. The canvas was packaged well, and there were no issues with delivery.

You should have seen how excited I was when it was delivered!

My son bought me the antique milk can for my birthday.

I gave it a temporary makeover for Halloween by adding a jack o lantern face using my Cricut and removable vinyl. Isn’t he cute?

Decorating with Tiered Trays

A simple way to decorate for Halloween, especially in a small space, is to use tiered trays.

A round 2-tiered tray was placed in the corner of my kitchen.

Amanda collects potion bottles from Target, and they are a perfect fit for a tiered tray.

I shopped my home to fill the bottom tray and used a sweet mini farmhouse ladder to hold spooky tea towels.

Did you see the darling ghost mugs I just made? They were inspired by Pottery Barn and were about 10x cheaper to make!
