Halloween isn’t just about decor full of black cobwebs and spooky lighting. In this post, you’ll learn all about Glam Halloween Decor Ideas that you’ll love to try out in your home this year for the season.
Glam Halloween Decor is all about incorporating far more colors than the traditional black and orange. In fact, you’ll see loads more golds and even silvers added into the mix. One rule of thumb for Glam Halloween: make sure it’s “blingy”!
So let’s get started with some basic ideas, which can even shine alongside your existing decor!
Perhaps the easiest thing to style are craft pumpkins. You can snag a craft pumpkin at Michaels or sometimes a big box retail store like Walmart for around $10 or less.
What You Will Need:
- Craft Pumpkin (Any Color).
- Gold spray paint (Pick a “Shiny” or “mirror effect” Finish).
- Black glitter.
- Spray Adhesive.
Start with spraying your craft pumpkin with a few coats of gold, allowing some time to dry between each coat (check your spray paint for dry times).
Once your gold pumpkin is completely dry, spray a light coat of spray adhesive and toss some glitter on. You can either add glitter all over, or just a splattering along the top of the pumpkin if you prefer.
As with any aerosol, I recommend a well ventilated or outdoor venue for both the spray paint and the glue!
If you are looking for an added punch of glam, you can use a hot glue gun to affix bigger jewels or feathers.
This is another simple craft that looks so stylish when you’re done.
What I used:
- Twig wreath (I got mine at Walmart for about $6)
- Black spray paint (At Walmart)
- A selection of leaves, tiny pumpkins, etc. (Check your local dollar store)
- Spray adhesive
- Gold glitter (check the crafting section of your local Dollar store)
I used the black spray paint on all the leaves, pumpkins, and the like. I used a hot glue gun to attach the leaves and other goodies to the wreath and then spritzed lightly with spray adhesive and topped with gold glitter.
Tip: If you can’t find black leaves, you can buy green or fall colored silk leaves and spritz them with black spray paint. I decided to leave a little of the original color in mine!
This one is so delightfully easy, especially if you can find frames in the finish you want. Otherwise, find ornate picture frames in a variety of shapes and spray paint them black or gold (all the same color or alternate between the two if you like).
What I used:
- Any wooden frame (Walmart has a good selection)
- Selection of sayings (you can use Canva to pretty them up on your plain printer paper)
- Black or gold spray paint
Once you have everything painted to your liking, assemble your paper with the sayings into the frames. Boom, you’re done. You can get extra jazzy with throwing some glitter or other shiny pieces onto your paper before inserting into the frame as well!
“Glammed Up” Knick-Knacks
I found some candlestick holders on clearance at Walmart, and I immediately thought of adding them to my decor theme. I sprayed them black and used some left-over black glitter from my pumpkin craft. Just add candles when you’re done!
You can also add apothecary jars and other little decor items that you find as glam Halloween is a very versatile and fun decor style!
Final Thoughts on Glam Halloween Decor
Ultimately, there’s a lot of variety in glam Halloween or sometimes called chic Halloween. The main thing to keep in mind with the style is that it’s almost luxurious and not scary. I’ve seen decor schemes with white and gold themes, for instance, rather than the black and gold styling that I’ve promoted here. It depends on your personal tastes. For inspiration, be sure to check out Pinterest (try searching under the term “glam Halloween”)!
