DIY Halloween Decorations: Spooky Halloween Garland

 

Here at The Home Depot Blog, it’s not Halloween without our annual visit to Love Manor, the amazing haunted house created by Hollywood production designer Johnny Love. He creates some of the best and most creative DIY Halloween decorations you’ll ever see. In year’s past, he’s contributed to our Halloween Style Challenge showing how he created  eerie ghost paintings and haunted house lighting and a spooky flying monster.

Now, he shows us how he used simple items such as tubing, utility light fixtures and spray paint to create a unique and spooky Halloween garland for his Love Manor. Add some dry ice, lights and a bony friend, and you’ve got yourself the makings of a really cool haunted house for Halloween.

Fall Decorations for a Harvest Festival on the Patio

Looks like we pushed Rachel Pereira of Shades of Blue Interiors out of her holiday decorating comfort zone with our Harvest and Halloween Style Challenge. We sent her a mystery box of Home Depot fall decorations to use on her patio. It was full of faux pumpkins, cute Halloween scarecrows, and other such fall decorating items.

Turns out Rachel is not so much of an “orange” person. So, this certainly was a challenge for her! You certainly would not guess that looking at the fabulous backyard harvest festival she put together, though. It’s orange and yellow and red, and it’s bursting with fun details. From her fall tablescape to the hay bales around the fire pit, you’re bound to see some fall decorating ideas you’d like to use in your own home.
