Cute & Easy Girly Halloween Decor Ideas for Spooky Season

Halloween is such a magical time of year, and I love turning our home into a spooky yet enchanting space. With four girls, our Halloween decor tends to be on the girly side, but it’s always so much fun. Most years, we go all out with cute Halloween decor that’s perfect for both indoor and outdoor Halloween decorations. From sparkly pumpkins to mermaid-inspired themes, here are some of our favorite girly Halloween decor ideas.

Girly Halloween Color Scheme

Creating a girly Halloween look starts with the right color scheme. Soft pastels like pinks, purples, and mint greens paired with lots of sparkles make for the most adorable decor. Mix these colors with traditional black and orange for a cohesive and fun look.

Rainbow Halloween Decor

Who says Halloween can’t be colorful? Paint real pumpkins in rainbow colors and create a rainbow balloon arch for your front porch. This is a fun twist on traditional Halloween decor and is sure to be a hit with your party guests.

DIY Sparkly Pumpkins

Real pumpkins are a must for any Halloween decor. We love painting them in pastel colors and adding glitter. Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Pastel paint
  • Glitter
  • Mod Podge
  • Hot glue

Paint your pumpkins, add a coat of Mod Podge, and sprinkle glitter all over. These sparkly pumpkins look great on front porches or as a part of your dining table centerpiece.

Enchanted Halloween Wreath

An enchanted wreath is perfect for your front door. Use faux flowers in girly colors and add some spooky elements like glittery bats or adorable black cats. You can use hot glue to attach everything securely. This wreath will welcome all your seasonal guests with style.

Glamorous Ghost Garland

Creating a ghost garland is simple and adds a cute touch to your home decor. Use white balloons, black card stock for eyes, and tulle to create the ghosts. String them together with long ropes and hang them in your living room or across your front porch.

Magical Halloween Centerpieces

For your dining table, create centerpieces using white pumpkins, sparkly skulls, and pastel candles. You can also add mini pumpkins and candle holders to complete the look. This will make your Halloween-themed party feel extra special.

Girly Halloween Lighting

Fairy lights or LED colored strip lights are perfect for adding a magical glow to any space. Create DIY lanterns using black kraft paper and cut out spooky shapes with a craft knife. These lanterns are great for both indoor spaces and outdoor Halloween decorations.

Pretty Potion Station

Set up a potion-making station with cute bottles filled with colored water and glitter. This is a fun activity for kids and adds to the Halloween spirit. Decorate the station with spooky labels and shop googly eyes for a fun touch.

Mermaid-Inspired Halloween Decor

Combine the magic of mermaids with the spookiness of Halloween. Use iridescent paint and glitter on pumpkins, and add seashells for a mermaid touch. Create a mermaid skeleton centerpiece using sparkly scales and set it on your dining table.

Creepy Crawlers and Giant Spiders

Don’t forget to add some creepy crawlers to your decor. Giant spiders made from pipe cleaners and hot glue are perfect for outdoor Halloween decoration ideas. Place them on your giant spiderweb to create a spooky scene.
