Using Halloween themes or costumes in your girl’s bedroom is an excellent way to liven up your room and get in the mood for Halloween. If you don’t want to use any holiday themes, you could use any color scheme. Also, you can really let your imagination go wild with all the possibilities for this Halloween decorating theme! If you have older daughters, you can dress them up in their favorite princess or witch costumes and put them in their beds. Also, use Halloween-themed pillows and blankets, curtains and other decorative items in your daughter’s bedroom. Here are some inexpensive but festive Halloween bedroom decorating ideas that will sure to be a big hit in your girls’ rooms this Halloween:
When most people think of Halloween, they think of pumpkins and ghosts and witches. You could easily turn your ordinary bedroom into a whimsical and fun room with a little Halloween decorating. You’ll need to purchase spooky wall hangings, a bed head, a couple of sconces, some fake pumpkins (use real if you don’t want to scare your kids), and a big piece of Halloween magic, like a star or a pumpkin. You can find these items at your local dollar or discount store. You could also use orange, black and white streamers and hang them on the windows and door to add an eerie atmosphere to your girls’ bedroom.
Now, let’s say that you are wanting to bring a little bit more excitement into the bedroom. What about having an extra Halloween cake in the shape of a ghost or a spider? Use black licorice to make it look like a spooky looking cake and then top it with an ugly looking eyeball. Don’t forget the pumpkin and spider web patterned icing to finish it off.
If you have the space, you can even make your own Halloween cookies. Just make some chocolate orange oops and bake them up. Make sure to put a little piece of Styrofoam in the bottom to prevent them from sticking to the walls. And for something extra special for Halloween, use a little piece of candy corn and cover it in orange and black frosting.
If you don’t like the idea of using food to decorate, there are plenty of other things you can use instead. The traditional scary mask is always a nice touch. Look around your room and see what scary ornaments you can find. Skelemingos and witches are always great choices.
For a little something extra, look around your home for old Halloween items that you don’t yet use. Wicker stocking might be the perfect item to use in your girls’ bedroom. Or maybe even a set of Halloween bobble heads. Add these to your girls’ bedroom decor to make it unique. Or you could theme the rest of the room around Halloween.
If you decide to use decorations at all, make sure that you plan ahead. You don’t want to be scrambling later on to find something to use when the kids leave. If you’re lucky, you might be able to find some of the decorations at your local thrift store. Keep in mind that it’s important to pick up only what you need and to discard anything that looks broken.
Now that you know how you can decorate a girls’ bedroom, you’re ready to set off searching for Halloween decorating ideas. Start by browsing through the Internet. Check out blogs and websites that feature Halloween crafts, decoration tips, and ideas. There’s no end to the information out there.
