3 Festive Ways to Decorate Your Entryway This Halloween

For decor enthusiasts, there’s more to Halloween than costumes, jack o’ lanterns, and candy corn. The right Halloween decorations can get your home into the spooky spirit and show off your personal style.

If you’re looking to dress up your home this Halloween, consider starting with your entryway. This area of your home will be seen by friends, family, and trick-or-treaters, so giving it a Halloween makeover is the perfect way to set the tone for a spooktacular holiday season.  

At ReadyFestive, we offer three Halloween-themed boxes filled with decor items that will make boo-tifying your entryway as easy as pumpkin pie. Here’s a look into our three Halloween boxes and some tips for styling a festive yet classy entryway using the items in each box.  

#1: Spooky Skulls & Spikes

Halloween, but make it rock n’ roll—that’s the inspiration behind this skull-and-spikes theme. This theme is perfect for those who want their Halloween decor to look spooky, trendy, and a little punk rock without being garish. This box features skulls galore, a Valentino-inspired spiked pumpkin, and a black, silver, and white color palate. 

Here are some tips for decorating your entryway with the items in this box: 

  • Deck out your entry table: Create a spooky welcoming by placing your black candlesticks, spiky pumpkin, pumpkin spice candle, “Home Sweet Haunted Home” sign, and spells box on a tabletop near your front door. Check out these decked out tabletops below for inspiration!
  • Pull up a chair: Move a small chair into your entryway to rest your skeleton throw pillow on. Placing a basket filled with black and white pumpkins next to the feet of the chair would also be a nice touch.
  • Hang a banner: Hang your “Beware” banner on the wall over your entry table, or hang it from the table itself. 

#2: Glam Halloween 

If spooky isn’t your style and you’d rather keep things looking a bit more sleek and stylish, our Glam theme is the way to go. This theme, which features a black and gold color palette, is ideal for those who enjoy shimmer and chicness.   

Here are some tips for decorating your entryway with the items in this box: 

  • Style your entry table: Use your black table runner as a base for an arrangement of translucent gold pumpkins, black and gold trees, and candles on a tabletop. If you want to up the fancy factor even more, light extra candles and use tea lights to light up the interior of your pumpkins. 
  • Boo-tify your space: Hang or drape your “Boo” sign/beads nearby and pull up a chair to place your “Happy Halloween” pillow on. 
  • Trick out your entryway: Incorporate the “Tricks or Treats” sign by setting it next to a bowl of treats. Who doesn’t love being greeted with a bowl of candy at the door?!

#3: Sweet Halloween 

Looking for decor that is fun, festive, and kid-friendly? Look no further than our Sweet theme. Featuring stripes, polka dots, a jolly jack o’ lantern, and a more classic orange and black color palette, this theme doesn’t have a scary bone in its body. 

Here are some tips for decorating your entryway with the items in this box: 

  • Give your entry table a fun makeover: Lay the striped table runner on a tabletop and top it with the jack o’ lantern, candy corn figurine, Halloween beads, and cider candle. You can also hang the “Boo” banner from the table or on the wall above the table. 
  • Offer sweet treats: Set the pumpkin-shaped bowls on a tabletop in your entryway and fill them with candy or homemade goodies. Be sure to leave the “Happy Halloween” napkins next to the bowls for your guests. There’s no sweeter welcome! 
  • Add a spooky touch: Set a ghost or skeleton stuffed animal on a chair in your entry and place the “Boo!” pillow next to it. This adds a spooky element while remaining kid-friendly.

Bonus: A Halloween Recipe Your Guests Will Die For

If you’re looking for a festive yet tasty treat to put out on a tray or bowl in your entryway, we found just the thing: brownie spiders! These creepy-crawly treats dreamed up by Gimme Some Oven are sure to be enjoyed by children and adults alike. 

What You’ll Need: 

·  1 pan of baked brownies

·  1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips

·  2 cups chow mein noodles

·  Candy eyeballs

·  Circle cookie cutter (about 1.5-inch diameter)

·  A toothpick

Instructions: 

  1. Use a circle cookie cutter to cut out circles for the spider “bodies.” Place the bodies on wax paper for prep.
  2. Put the chocolate chips in a medium-sized bowl and melt them in the microwave. Then, remove 1 tablespoon of the melted chocolate and set it aside. 
  3. Gently stir the chow mein noodles into the remaining melted chocolate until all of the noodles are coated. Spread the noodles out on a plate covered with wax paper (you don’t need to separate them completely), and put them in the freezer for about 10 minutes.
  4. Once chilled, remove the chocolate-covered noodles and pick out some long ones to use as the spider “legs.” Use a toothpick to poke eight holes on the top of the brownie circles around the edges and press the noodles into the holes. 
  5. Take the tablespoon of melted chocolate you set aside and use the toothpick to transfer a dot of melted chocolate to the back of each candy eye (this acts as the “glue”). Place the eyes on the front of the brownie circles.
  6. Transfer your spider brownies to a serving tray or plate and set them out on your entry table. They also keep for up to four days when covered.
