The most important Halloween decoration trends 2022
Not everyone is a big fan of the classic horror aesthetic that takes over most homes in the fall. We’re here to say that’s okay!
Pink is the new color for Halloween
There are plenty of cute options that fit perfectly with the hip barbiecore trend. Leave the traditional orange and black behind and incorporate pink hues into your seasonal decor. Pink Halloween decorations are all the rage this season, and pink accents are a great way to accent your existing pieces. Paint your old pumpkins a bright shade of pink (perfect for those who are into Barbiecore) or add dusty mauve tones for a more subtle look.
Wherever you shop for your favorite Halloween decorations, it’s not impossible to find pastel Halloween pillows, pink skeleton glassware or glittery spiders that reflect the trend.
However, if you can’t find the right one for your home, you can easily make pink decorations for any occasion yourself. With a little glue, pink paint and glitter, anything can become Barbiecore.
Pumpkins with plant motifs
Get rid of the classic jack-o’-lanterns. The craze for indoor plants has found its way into Halloween decor trends 2022 in the form of plant-themed pumpkins.
Instead of creepy faces, you can carve leaves, succulents, cacti or flowers into your pumpkins to create a beautiful decoration for your apartment or balcony – no watering required.
Pumpkin lanterns with geometric patterns.
Use geometry to create unexpectedly glamorous jack-o’-lanterns. Instead of the standard face pattern, try simple geometric patterns with circles or squares for an unconventional Halloween twist.
Creepy ideas for Halloween decorating trends – decorative animal skeletons.
Decorating houses with human skeletons is a cliché, especially when we’ve been using them for years. It was probably time to think outside the box and do something a little creepier.
This is where the decorative Halloween animal skeletons come in, which we’ve ignored for the past few years, but are now in high demand. You can place these skulls and skeletons in your garden and also behind closed doors.
Vintage Halloween decoration – the hottest trend 2022
Nostalgia has been a big holiday trend in recent years, so it’s no surprise that vintage Halloween decorations are back in style. Whether it’s glass pumpkins or classic decorations from years past, vintage Halloween decorations are all the rage right now. And chances are, you don’t even have to spend money on this trend. Rummage through your attic or basement to find forgotten, old Halloween treasures. If you don’t have any luck there, use our tips for buying vintage Halloween decor instead.
Another nice touch? Put Gothic and Victorian accents everywhere. Think holographic paintings, medieval lanterns, witch hands, skulls, gargoyles and black candelabras. Incorporate spooky telephones, old radios, or flickering lights to bring your vintage decorations into the 21st century.
Halloween trees have achieved cult status and are now almost as common as Christmas trees. Show off your spooky Halloween decorations by adding these spooky trees to the list.
The trees can feature hanging pumpkins and bats on the branches or make the dark theme glow with dangling lights.
