Easy and Simple Halloween Decorations

This is the first fall season in our home and it has been so fun adding fall touches. I love using what I already have as well as bringing in some nature to give our home some fall vibes. Adding a few easy and simple Halloween decorations to our festive fall home was so much fun and now it’s almost ready for my murder mystery dinner party. Be sure to subscribe to my blog and you’ll get updates on the dinner and more!

My mom’s birthday is on Halloween, so it’s always been fun decorating for her birthday get-togethers and my girls enjoy spooky touches around the house too. To get ready for my murder mystery dinner, I was able to use a lot of things I already have, but I added a few new additions to create a classy spooky vibe. The large tree branch over the dining table has also been used for the Emma Tea Party as well as Quinn’s Fairy Garden Birthday Party. I’m not sure where the branch will go next, but it is such a fun and whimsical decoration. I added some battery-operated fairy lights and a few fake black birds to the branch. The table centerpiece is a burlap table runner, three pumpkins and some gourds from Walmart, some fall stems, and battery-operated votives. This tablescape is easy and affordable and when the time comes, I can’t wait to add the table settings to it!

The backdrop to the dining table is a fun little scene with more tree branches, my DIY man in the moon, and decor I’ve had for a while. There’s something about brass candlesticks in a dining room or on the mantel that I just love. I also added some faux leaves (from the Dollar store) to the wall to create a wallpaper look. It’s such an easy way to add some whimsy and color.

Across from the dining room is a little nook area that is always fun to redecorate. I grabbed the vintage cubby from Quinn’s room and decorated it with another branch, candles, and these faux vintage bottles that I made several years ago. My IKEA wall gallery got another little makeover with some vintage photos of kids from The Graphics Fairy. I love these free vintage photos, and I just had to send them off to print at Sam’s Club. With a few pumpkins and a cozy blanket, the scene is set.

My favorite of all the easy and simple Halloween decorations are the bats. I didn’t realize how many came in the package, but there were enough to decorate the mantel, the entry, and even the powder room. They came with double-sided foam stickers that are strong enough to stick to the wall, but can easily be removed. And the bats wings can be bent to add dimension to the one-dimensional decoration. I like to start with the smallest sized bat and then have the bats fan out using all three sizes. Another new addition to our home is Mr. Bones. He’s a posable skeleton, and the girls love moving him around as well as putting hats and accessories on him.

The entryway has the best easy and simple Halloween decorations. I love the neutral colors and simplicity of it all. More bats made it to our entryway accent wall – they’re coming from the front door, across the mirror/console, and up. The Dollar store had black and cream cheesecloth to help with a creepy vibe. It’s not often that easy and simple Halloween decorations only cost $1 and provide such a big impact. To get these to hang right, I first hung it up at a few points and then I cut up the bottom to get a ragged look. I also cut slits throughout to give it an aged look. The branch came from our yard, and it’s that simple! The leftover bats made it to the powder room to put just a touch of Halloween in there.

Beautiful and Free Samsung Frame TV Digital Art

Like most homes, we have a TV, well a few of them. And we’ve been enjoying the Samsung Frame TV for many years now. If I have to have a large rectangle as a focal point on my wall, I love the fact that I can customize the art that is shown on it (when it’s not being used). The TV comes with a lot of stock art, you can display family/personal photos, you can buy art from Etsy, and you can also upload free artwork to the TV as well. As you know, I love to decorate and design our home as well as add seasonal touches and changes. So being able to change out my Frame TV art is nice, but it could get costly. Which is why I’m so excited to show you how to add beautiful and free Samsung Frame TV digital art.

One of my favorite go-to resources for artwork, handmade cards, graphic design, invitations, etc. is The Graphics Fairy. This site offers a ton of free images to use for personal use, and you may also subscribe for a monthly or annual subscription to have unlimited access to all the files as well as project ideas, and video tutorials each week. I did a search on vintage fall landscapes and found several images that I liked and then I saved them to a thumb drive and loaded them onto my Frame TV. I instantly knew which one I liked best with my mantel design and now I have free fall artwork above my fireplace. If you have a Samsung Frame TV, here are the instructions to load your own beautiful and free Samsung Frame TV digital art.

Once you go through the steps a few times, it will be second nature and you will be able to quickly and easily change out your artwork all the time. I was displaying our latest family photo this last summer and some friends thought it was a framed photo above the mantel. The Frame TV is wonderful, it’s sleek, allows you to display artwork, and it provides a clear and beautiful viewing picture as well. If it still looks too much like a regular old TV for you, you can also get a frame that attaches to the outer edge of the TV. They have several styles and colors of frames which make it look even more like framed artwork. It’s an awesome concept and a win-win for the couple where one person has to have a TV in a room when the other hates the idea~

Our family room is slowly coming together. It’s been a tough room for me to make decisions on because it is our main room, we spend a lot of time in here and we don’t have a formal living area so this is our main seating. However, slowly but surely I’m making the changes that I want and we’re enjoy the cozy space as we go. In the meantime, I never have to worry about displaying beautiful artwork above our mantel with the Samsung Frame TV. Be sure to subscribe to the blog to watch this room come together. I have a new sofa coming, I’m slowing building the floating shelves, I will decide on a wall treatment soon, a new rug, window covers, and seasonal touches throughout the year.
