Day 14: Fun Colorful Decorating Ideas for Halloween

Decorating your home for Halloween can be fun and colorful- we are already given such colorful props to work with right? What could be more colorful then pumpkins and the color orange, especially when you can contrast it with black and white- here are some fun, some easy. some for the craftier DIY side of us, ways to add color to your October

Orange feathers.. what could more fun then this! With a little glue and a bit of patience and time you could make your own orange feather wreath.. it's very chic!

 A bit more for the advanced DIY, but how great would this be for a fun Halloween party

 This buffet looks great with the colorful pumpkins and I love them with the contrast of the black candles which is a little more on the ghoulish side.  But it's the plates all hung above the buffet in the black and white that are so striking, you could find a variety of plates and hang them in a random pattern for that wow factor

Ok even if you don't have the orange colored walls behind the shelves, because I am sure not many of us do already, but you could still pull this off with just some white vases and milk glass vases, throw in a little of the black accents, love the crow, and then maybe bring in a little orange with some mini pumpkins and gourds

These pumpkins look amazing, I especially love the one with the wood graining pattern, again a DIY project for sure, but with some black paint you would be surprised how creative you might be!
Get the kids involved and make it fun, how unexpected  would it be to have this pumpkin tree on a shelve

Bring on the glam!  How beautiful are these silver pumpkins and placed on the silver tray with the  candle holders is so elegant.  I did this last year with the kids, we rolled up our sleeves and painted, it was a lot of fun, best part was, I mentioned this in a previous post, after Thanksgiving was over and time to bring out the Christmas decorations I put my silver pumpkins outside in my window boxes with holiday greens, they really brightened them up and looked great.
So many creative things to do, the hardest part might just be finding the time to do them!
