Witch or Treat DIY Halloween Decor

Witch or Treat DIY Halloween Decor

Here’s a little inspiration this year for some DIY Halloween decor to fill any table in the house! As part of an Instagram group, I made a few little projects using a variety of different products. They ended up all going together quite well to make up what I’ve dubbed my “Witch or Treat” Halloween tablescape.

I even got to throw our old friend the dragon skeleton in the display!

Starry walls and Linens

There are moments when I’m so very happy I have a Cricut machine on hand. The walls looked blank after I finished my table, so a few glitter cardstock stars and moons filled the space and added a little mystical something to the set. A few black tablecloths covered my table, and used a super long gold runner from Oriental Trading across the top. Over the mirror, I found a shawl with long fringe to create a more spooky mood.

Skeleton Fairies

One of my favorite little projects in this set were the skeleton fairies. You can find the skeleton fairy tutorial here.

A witchy sort of person would probably want to keep a fairy or two around for good, so a few were caught under a glass cloche.

Witch or treat sign and candy cauldrons

Witch or Treat sign and Candy Cauldrons

I found this little sign at the thrift store for a dollar. It was pink when it started! A coat of white paint and a Cricut vinyl design later, I had a darling little sign for my display. The candy cauldrons were a FAMILY favorite, as the sweets were easy to swipe on the way out the door. They were all very sad when I stopped refilling them. The cauldrons themselves came from Michaels a few years ago. They’re a good prop to keep in storage to use from year to year if you ever run across some!

The treat bags for Halloween were prepped WAY ahead of time and piled them up in a little cauldrons. While I used a silkscreen technique (which was very cool!) you can easily use vinyl to make them yourself!

Gemstone pumpkins

Blinged Out Pumpkins

Faux pumpkins I had around the house were repurposed for my new display. I painted them all the same shade of white, then glittered a few and pasted on plenty of shiny gems!

There was something missing when I first had everything in place, so I started adding sprigs of greenery in and around the display pieces. It added a little bit liveliness that brought everything together.

We loved having this Witch or Treat Halloween table at our front door all month!
