Halloween decor doesn't have to be a monstrous mash-up of ghastly styles that clash. With a little forethought, it's simple to concoct an overall motif that will integrate well with your existing personal style. We've brewed up a guide for pulling your Halloween decor together and selected some of our favorite decorations from Target's collection to help you on your way to spooky style success. RIP Tombstone from Target integrates lots of these elements in one swoop. Also keep an eye out for spooky pieces that make use of chains and metallic finishes, such as this Hanging Jack-O-Lantern with Flame. Simple Modern Metal Lantern with Tealight can add a pop of orange during the day and cast scary spiderweb shadows at night. In the Jack-o-lantern department, keep things minimal and monochromatic with white or grey pumpkins carved with geometric patterns. spiderwebs and scour pumpkin patches and farmer's markets for gourds in bright colors. Target has a great 53" Scary Tree that would look great indoors or on the front porch, especially if lit from below with some dramatic up-lighting. Or, create a haunted forest for trick-or-treaters to trek through by lining your front walk with these frightful trees. Pumpkin Greeter has a vintage look about him that we like, and will instantly make a front porch or entryway a happy place. If you'd rather curate a more morbid decor, look for interesting containers or jars that you could fill with plastic "specimens" such as spiders, insects, or fake body parts submerged in embalming fluid (just use colored water) to build a macabre collection of curiosities for display on a mantle or in a cabinet. Shatterproof Pumpkin Wreath in bold black and orange is a great pick for a festive, frightful front door. Target Home Catalog.
