Happy (almost) Halloween!!!! I’m really looking forward to it this year. It’s a four year tradition that we have friends and family over to our house Halloween evening. We enjoy a pizza party, and then set out to trick or treat! And this year, since we have our new beautiful table that Travis built, I wanted to do a quick and easy budget friendly Halloween tablescape! Need some ideas for Halloween table decorations? Look no further. I threw this together all with items I had on hand.
Since the stores are selling out of Halloween decor at this point, using items on hand to create this centerpiece is perfect! All you need is some black spray paint and your imagination! You can take this project as a base and use it for plenty of different ideas for Halloween table decorations!
We’ve already got the spiders on the outside of the house, we’ve played over and over with our Halloween village, and made lots of fun crafts like these potion bottles. The centerpiece will be the perfect last project for our Halloween decor! Let’s get started!
Easy ideas for Halloween table decorations
What you’ll need:
- White tablecloth, bedsheets, table runner, or blanket (just has to be white to contrast well with the black)
- Fake pumpkins in all sizes (about 6)
- Random extra florals you have laying around
- Candlestick holders (They don’t have to match, grab around 4 of them)
- Fake or real candles
- Black spray paint
How to assemble centerpiece
First, spray paint the pumpkins, florals, and candles black. Try to only apply one coat of black paint on the candles. You want the light to still be able to show through.
Once dry get all your centerpiece ingredients together, and begin!
Lay out the white material across the center of the table. The fact that it’s not perfectly flat is the point. Gather and tuck, making it look a little messy.
Next, place the candlestick holders and candles in the center of the table, staggered a bit.
Now add the pumpkins. Start with the larger ones in the center and work out to the smaller ones at the end.
Finally, you’ll add in the floral. Spray paint them all black so no matter if they matched or not before, they do now! I think one was a sunflower, there were some fall leaves, and a few other random flowers I found in my old decor.
From here I found a few sparkly floral picks (that honestly, I think I found in the Christmas section!) and misted them a little black and added them in as the finishing touches. If you don’t have anything similar, don’t worry about it! The black florals are good enough!
That’s it! A super simple Halloween table decor idea that will be sure to wow your guests!
I hope you have an amazing Halloween and it’s filled with family, memories, and lots of candy!
Stay tuned as November 1st I’m busting out the Christmas decor! No shame in this girl’s Christmas game! Because it’s never too soon for sparkle lights, holly, and all things green, red, and cozy!
